It doesn’t matter if you’re staying in a hotel or a remote destination camping under the stars; the proper travel gear can make all the difference in the world. When I first started traveling, I couldn’t afford much, so I had to figure out a way to make what gear I did have work for me.
Lessons were learned. With each new destination, I figured out what I would need, and slowly, I started building a set of travel accessories that worked for me.
For example, I’d much rather use a duffel bag as my carry-on. I tend to do most of my traveling during winter, and I’ve found that rolling luggage doesn’t play nicely with cobblestone streets and snow. My duffel bag has made my life so much easier, and I’m still able to stay organized, just the same as a traditional suitcase.
As you travel more, you’ll start to figure out what you need to pack and carry with you to make the best of your adventures. I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite accessories to help you on your world travels.
