    I always have my phone for pictures etc. But I always download this app call "citymaps2go" with the maps of the area that I'll be in if I won't have internet.

    I always have a good pair of shoes regardless of where I'll be because I never know how much walking I'll be doing.

    And I always travel with wet wipes in my purse or bag. I usually just get 2-3 small packs from target but sometimes you'll be out and touching whatever it is. You don't know where or when you'll be eating. If you have to go to the bathroom and there's no paper. Whatever it is. They always come in handy!

    (1) My smart phone to keep me organized since it has all the information I need, from copies of my important documents and confirmations for my flight and hotel, as well as helping me wander around and get to where I want to go, (2) my camera because I get so nostalgic about all the trips I've gone to that I always take lots (and I do mean LOTS!) of photos to remember EVERYTHING, and (3) a mobile power bank to keep my devices working because I've experienced losing battery power to some pretty good (and some uncomfortable i.e. being lost) moments and I do not want to live through that again.

    1. All permutations of Apple products - iPhone, iPad, & MacPro. Especially for long flights. That way I can get work done (spreadsheets, ppt, etc), take photos, catch up on reading or addictive cable shows (House of Cards, The Americans, etc).

    2. Wet wipes and lotion (preferably L'Occitane)

    3. Cashmere scarf

    4. Bottled water & mixed nuts with dried fruit

    5. Mini make-up bag and extra pair of unmentionables in case I get stuck overnight somewhere. :-)

    1. A book for when I'm waiting in airports/bus terminals/etc.

    2. Snacks because I never quite know how my day will go and I might need something to keep me going.

    3. Cross body bag since they're always what I feel safest carrying around.

    a) Passport. Amongst other reasons, it's also the only proof of identity I've got ..
    b) Money, or some way of getting it.
    c) Camera, to record what I see, to remember things by, and just in case I come across something unusual that I may not believe my memory for.

    Everything else is optional, or obtainable with money ... :)

    A headlamp, a camera with a decent-sized image sensor and a daypack that can carry water. Nearly everything else is negotiable.

    I never bring a computer unless I'm on a business trip. It's completely possible to do without it.

    Chargers! Left them all over Canada on the last trip and it was a disaster. Hard copies of all itineraries and copies emailed in one big file to myself in case I lose them and need to access them from anywhere. I am OCD about checking and double checking flight times! Band-aids, second skin (I get blisters), tummy drugs (get sick one time in a foreign country and you won't forget them either!), and Dramamine (motion sickness prevails in my world). Oh yeah-sleeping aids!!

      I can't even imagine what I would need a fixed blade knife FOR. All I know is, that would mean I'd have to check luggage, and that's something I would never do! Ha ha! · (1 likelikes)

      Lol I never check a bag! In any place you need one they are very easy to get. I'm a light wait camper/traveler so if I have pants on I have a knife on me. I'm also in a lot of third world country's and a machete goes a long way! I'm often just off the road sleeping in my jungle hammock instead of paying for a room. · (1 likelikes)
