As The Man and I prepare to leave for our big trip in just over two weeks (EEEK!) it was time to dust off the travel gear.
We don’t have a ton of stuff (we often borrow what we need from my well-travelled parents or simply use everyday items) so a couple of small suitcases stacked in the bedroom do the trick.
In the larger case is (clockwise from top left):
- travel towel
- sleeping bag liner
- pouch with inflatable neck pillow and ear plugs
- laundry kit (containing laundry soap, pegless clothesline and inflatable coathangers)
- ziplock travel bags (not visible)
- shoe bags
- rain poncho
The smaller case (not even a suitcase, really more of a briefcase) contains:
- luggage tags
- travel wallet with chain
- handheld luggage scales
- travel organisers
- small amount of foreign currency (not visible)
Everything probably could fit into the one suitcase but I figure we’ll gather more gear as time goes on, plus I’d rather have everything easy to see and find rather than a big jumble of stuff.
Our toiletries bags, along with spare travel-sizes items, are in the bathroom cabinet. I also have a bunch of cosmetics bags that are fantastic for organising small things like cables, adaptors and medicines in your suitcase.
So tell me, what are your must-have travel items?
