1) Earphones

Who doesn’t need earphones? You’ll never know when this will come in handy. It’s perfect when you go on a bus ride, a plane ride or any ride along the way to your destination. It’s the ideal shut-up moment to the world on your travel downtime as well. This doesn’t mean you’ll miss on or ignore on the possibility of listening stories to a stranger by your side, it just creates a thematic feeling as you listen to your travel playlist. After all, music doesn’t encourage disconnection, it is connection.

Safety Note: Be wary with posting while away from home. If you are with your entire family, it is better to keep from posting your whereabouts to avoid burglars from robbing your empty houses.

5) Colored photocopy of passport and your passport

As you expect for the best, always prepare for the worst. It’s a nightmare to get your travel documents stolen or lost along with other things, especially if you’re in a foreign country. It’s like losing your identity. So, it is best practice, even if you’re on a rush, to always keep a colored photocopy of your passport; the first page of your passport, and other I.D.’s so it would be easier to replace the originals. You can proceed to the nearest embassy then everything will be alright.

You can also keep a  scan of your passport and store it on your iCloud, Dropbox or any online storage accounts.

6) Universal adapter plug

There’s one thing that humanity couldn’t agree on, a standardized plug. What’s worse than to stay in a hotel when you can’t charge your gadgets because the plugs just don’t fit with your charger teeth, right? Well, it is better to be safe than sorry, so pack that universal charger for emergency purposes.

7) Your charger

Never, ever forget to bring your chargers! There’s no need to explain, but you know it’s going to make you feel bad. You don’t want that.

8) Travel Document holder

If you are an organized traveler, then you know the perks that comes with having a travel document holder. Everything is just oh-so hassle-free and crumple-free! You can keep your passport, hotel confirmation, boarding pass, itinerary, and tickets without them having to get misplaced in your bags.

9) Resealable plastic bags

You will need this. You will need this to keep your dirty clothes or keep that food you would want to eat for later, or keep those magnificent sea shells and stones or any travel trinkets you want to bring home with as a souvenir.

10) Snacks or Tic Tac candies

Most chips and snacks are overpriced! Seriously, just because you don’t have any other access to buy snacks (take for instance on plane rides or the only store in the island), you can’t expect these bites to go cheap. Scarcity sometimes dictates the product price. So, if you’re on a budget, why not get those chips packed for travel.

Tic Tac candies are also nice essentials, sometimes this can be an icebreaker to a stranger you want to converse with. You’ll never know what relationship can come out from offering Tic Tac candies. (Winks)

11) Travel size toothpaste and toothbrush and other toiletries.

Hotels [Read: Pawnina Shares: Secret Hacks To Book Star Rated Hotels On A Budget] sometimes provide free toothpastes and toothbrushes, but that depends on the kind of hotel or inn you are crashing for the entire duration of your travel. So, it is better to pack for basic hygiene. You still want to look your best no matter what.

12) Sunblock

Getting that tan line is a travel mark you should not be ashamed off. But as expected, there will be a lot of sunshine on your travel. And if you’re not the type who carries an umbrella around, which can be a hassle, then use sunscreen. Oh, don’t forget to bring your caps or hats as well. It’s for fashion and for protection.

13) Laptop

The laptop is an essential because you can play music, watch a movie, store your photos from your camera or write a travel blog if you have one. 

14) Sunglasses

It is a fashion essential, a protection from the eyes and more importantly a symbol of adventure.

15) A good book

Picture this: A good book while sipping piña colada under the palm trees is just a perfect past time on a beach, or reading your favorite Sidney Sheldon, Nicholas Sparks, J.K. Rowling or Shakespeare perhaps on the cafe as the sun sets or just taking the time with your book by the fountain of a plaza, wherever you read, a good book certainly brings good outcomes on your journey. You’ll never know who would pick a quote and start a random conversation with you, all because of that good book in your hands. Who knows, you can just start your very own storybook tale from just reading a book. (Winks)
