There is nothing worse than forgetting to pack something essential
Whether you are traveling with multiple suitcases or just a backpack, packing a good carry-on requires some thought. However, this can be overwhelming. On the bright side, we are here to help. In this list, you will find everything you need to pack for your next trip. Well, excluding clothes, swimsuits, winter jackets, boots, and so on, since this really depends on where you are traveling. So, other than that, let’s see what you shouldn’t leave without and why.

A power bank is one of the most important things you should pack. Nowadays, your phone holds all your important information – your boarding pass, a map for directions, and it’s also a way to keep in touch with your fellow travel buddies or your loved ones at home. So, you need to make sure your phone has enough battery at all times. How? With a power bank! You can never guarantee you will have access to a power outlet, so this is a great way to get some juice in your phone without trying to find an outlet.

Speaking of outlets, depending on the country you are visiting, you might need a plug adaptor. While most European countries for example share the same style of outlets, you cannot expect that everywhere. So, having a portable adaptor is always a smart idea. Especially if you are traveling to multiple countries on one trip.

#Reusable Water Bottle
Instead of giving a good amount of money constantly buying plastic water bottles, you can take your own reusable one. Especially if you will be spending most of your days hiking, or just walking. Keeping hydrated is important. However, in some destinations water is not as easy to access, so having your own will come in handy. You can always buy a big water bottle that’s like 10 liters and pour it over the course of your stay in your reusable bottle, as some countries may not have good water.

We truly think plastic bags are a travel essential. Why? Just think about it. Where are you going to pack your muddy shoes if you need to? Where are you going to store your dirty laundry? What if you need to carry multiple things at once? All of these can be dealt with in a second if you just have some plastic bags on you. You can also recycle them afterward.

There are a ton of situations in which you may need wet wipes. Maybe you spilled something, you got something sticky on your handy, and so on. Plus, they are always good to have on hand, as while traveling in buses and subways may be fun, they are not the cleanly of places. So, you can just take a wet wipe and use it to hold a handle in the subway, for example! You don’t want any germs to get to you while on your vacation. Wet wipes also come in handy as you might want to wipe down objects such as remotes, light switches, doorknobs, and in general things that tend to be touched a lot.

#Packable Rain Jacket
You don’t need to be traveling to a tropical rainforest to need a portable rain jacket. No matter where you are traveling to, we highly recommend you always have on you a small pouch with a packable jacket. Even if you’ve checked the forecast, you never know when you can get caught in heavy rainfall. Plus, if you also get kind of chilly, it’s an extra layer.
