Travel is my new love. I always look forward to it. But, packing can be difficult when travelling. I always pack the night before, and sometimes it would take me hours before I can pack everything. There was this one time when I fell asleep before I even start packing for my trip the next day. In addition to that, I woke up late and I only had 30 minutes left to prepare everything! Anyway, I have so many essentials that I have to bring. If possible, I want to bring everything! My only dilemma is I don't want to carry big bags. Boo.

toiletries

It's always important to bring your own toiletries when traveling. Of course, bring your own toothbrush and toothpaste too since some accommodations do not provide these. Also, buying travel-size containers gives you more space in your bag. I know we often buy big sizes of shampoo or conditioner; we don't have to bring it along with us, right?

medicine

The worst thing that could happen when traveling is getting sick. I always bring Paracetamol, Buscopan for stomach cramps and Bonamine. Most of the time I bring more because I really want to avoid getting sick. Get this small first aid kit for only $5.99. 

power bank

I always have to bring my power bank with me wherever I go. I always use my phone when I take photos of the places that I go to, thus, my phone's battery drains faster. It really is a must to bring a power bank.

Waterproof pouch

Most of my trips are to the beaches; I want to keep my gadgets and money dry so I always bring my waterproof pouch.

travel pouch

To be honest, it's not enough that my stuff are properly folded and placed in my bag. All my stuff has to be grouped accordingly. Thus, the multiple pouches; each pouch has a purpose: (1) towel, (2) swimwear, (3) sleepwear, (4) everyday clothes, etc.

Sunglasses

I want to enjoy the good view at the beach or any high contrast areas. The eyes should always be protected from the harsh UV rays. Yikes!

Cash, ATM and identification card

Okay, I don't stick to my budget. When did I? I always bring a considerable amount of cash in case I want to buy something or in case of emergencies. I always leave my credit card at home.

Light-colored tops

Actually, I'd prefer dark-colored clothes when travelling but light-colored clothes are cooler - it absorbs less heat from the sun.

snacks

It depends on how you travel, you should always have snacks or candies in your bag. There are instances when you cannot have a stopover to eat meals. We all don't want to travel hungry. 😄

entertainment

Read a book, listen to good music, entertain yourself.
