8 Important Travel Essentials I Always Have With Me
1. Neck Supporter
If have read 8 Mistakes I Made While Traveling, then you would already know how important my neck supporter is to me. Everyone needs one when they travel a lot, right?
2. Wallet, of course
Everyone always (or mostly) brings their wallets in them whenever they travel. In my wallet, I have my credit card, bank cards, personal ID, cash, discount & membership cards, and all the other things we need for going away.
3. Basic Necessities
The usual. Clothes, shoes, and things for hygiene.
4. My iPhone, headphones, and charger
Always have these with me. Does not matter where I am. I like to be prepared and to be connected to the world and I normally take travel pictures with my iPhone. Actually, almost all of the photos I have posted in this website were taken with my phone. I know using a DSLR would give me better results but I really don't feel like bringing a DSLR with me all the time, especially if I'm planning to walk around for more than 8 hours. It would be too heavy for me. So, tadaa, my phone saves the day!
Phones die, and mine normally does very fast because I take a lot of pictures & videos with it which results it to having lesser battery life. So, with that being said, of course I have a powerbank with me as well. Yes, I could charge in cafes and restaurants but I would rather walk around than hang out too much in places like these just to charge my phone.
6. Apple Juice
Water is important, but apple juice for me is heaven and I always have a bottle in my bag, always. It's a very refreshing drink for me because, as I said, I normally walk for over 8 hours and water just doesn't quench my thirst.
7. Selfie Stick
Whenever I travel solo, I always use this. Why can't I just use my arms? Well, that's because I have short arms and using this just won't get the whole picture perfect. And selfie sticks are very common nowadays anyway.
8. My Diary
I think most travels always write on their diaries just to remember what happened every day of the trip. The girl I met in the hostel in Brussels, for example, also writes on her diary everyday and she even read some of her entries to me that night. It's nice to be able to jot down the exact details and while you're in the moment because the best time to write something is when you feel it.
