Top 6 Travel Must-Haves

Reading Time: < 1 minute

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a a stop motion video of my packing list that will fit into a carry on bag.  If you haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, make sure to check it out.

Since I received so many comments from you asking me what my favourite travel items are, I decided to make a video about it.  So, basically if I were to only bring a purse on my travel, this is what I would have in it:

What are your Top 6 Travel Must-Haves?

    Love your tips! In my top 10 I have to include a list (Laminated) or available on my email. of things I need just to get out the door. It’s probably an age problem, but I noticed that I was so excited to be in Egypt that I would leave the room without my sunglasses and/or camera. So lame of me, but I solved the problem by having a list.

    Agree with all the above, head lamp is a must and I love the dry lite towel. Great tips lady! I never thought of a door stop before, but what a great tip for solo travelers and hostel goers.

    Quick question – what type of sleeping bag do you use? I’m trying to look for a light/compact option…

      This isn’t the greatest sleeping bag. It’s just one I bring to use while camping or to put over a bed (if the sheets don’t look the cleanest). If you want a multipurpose sleeping bag, I would check out the Katabatic Gear Palisade (which is a quality sleeping bag but is a little costly) or the Kelty Cosmic Down 20 (which is a great bang for your buck)! Going with something that is light, not too bulky and can be used for multi-day trips in three-season conditions is your best option.

      I know! It can be used for some things, and they are so pretty and soft. I just love them.

    Hi Kristen!

    I absolutely agree with your top 6. I bought a pashmina in Tibet and I’ve been using it since then as a scarf and a blanket when I have a nap while being on the road:-). You can easily cover your legs and arms when visiting temples in Asia. I’ve never heard of dry lite towel, must buy one. Do you know where I can get it from? I’ll start using door step as well. Never been been robbed though.

    Great video. I really like your sense of humor. Looks like you have a new fan here 🙂

    Happy travel,

      Aww thanks Agness! You will LOVE the dry lite towel. It’s so so so great. I used to hate bringing just a normal towel because it would never dry and stink real bad. haha. The dry lite towel dries so quickly, it’s easy to wash and easy to pack. I definitely recommend that every traveller has one. I’m glad your liking the videos. Lots more to come. I have a few trips lined up and have been super busy organizing things, but stay tuned for a lot more:)

    Enjoyable. The doorstop I’ve never thought of — and I will take it next time. For rope, I might substitute paracord — but to each her or his own. Best w/ your adventures.

      The doorstop is pretty awesome. Where are you heading off to next?
