Despite being a notorious repacked and planner, I inevitably forget to pack and am forced to buy things I misplaced. You can usually find what you need at your destination, but it’s easier to pack it properly in advance. You may not forget your pants and shoes, but what about less obvious items? Whether you’ve already booked your trip or are planning it these things to bring with you on your next vacation is shown below.
After every trip, I’ve found that where I live there aren’t enough outlets. Choosing between a lamps and charging your phone is a difficult task, and it’s only made worse if you’re sharing a room with other people.
Reusable water bottle
Bottle filled with water on the beach. Bringing a reusable bottle can save you money and keep you hydrated. Whether you’re walking through city streets for hours or hiking in a national park all day, you need to hydrate often. Finding water in certain travel destinations isn’t always easy — not to mention how hot or muggy it can be in certain climates — so it helps to always carry a refillable bottle.

Therefore, we recommend that you always carry a portable power bank with you. Power banks put power in your pocket for easy access and are usually not very expensive. It’s a good idea to invest in something that’s not only reliable, but can charge your phone multiple times before you need Essential Items.
Hand holds subway handle with napkin. Wipes can be used to disinfect your hands and certain frequently touched items. Bus tours and subway rides are great fun, but they’re not always pretty places. When traveling, we need to grab “touch-sensitive” objects such as remote controls, light switches, phones, doorknobs, and faucet handles. Therefore, it is important to practice good hygiene to prevent illness.
Quick dry towel
Towels come in handy most of the time and you never know when they might come to your rescue. Maybe you spilled something all over your clothes or got caught in a rainstorm and need to dry off quickly. Or you might arrive at your hotel or his Airbnb and find no towels provided.
If he has one travel essential that I affirm, it’s a plastic bag. Need to pack your muddy shoes? Want to separate worn and dirty clothes from clean items?
