The 5 Essentials I Can’t Travel Without!
Travelling can be super fun but it can also turn into a nightmare really fast if you don’t do it right. These are somethings I’ve picked up that are sure to put a positive spin on your travels! Here are some essentials I can’t travel without:
Always carry something to read while travelling because it can get super boring. If you want to see the scenery or something that’s fine but if you’re flying or aren’t super interested in the scenery I would suggest definitely bringing along something to read.
To see the full list of makeup items I travel with click here. I usually travel with at least some makeup items because travelling can really take it out of you and you might end up looking exhausted so having a couple of makeup items can help you look fresh and awake even after a long journey.
An extra pair of clothing
Just in case you get stuck somewhere remember to carry along a fresh pair of clothes and if you’re able to, a towel. It really saved me when I missed my flight!
Let’s be honest- plan food is usually the worst. Getting good food can be difficult when you’re travelling and ironically you need good food when you’re travelling because it can be very tiring and exhausting. Make sure to carry some filling snacks so that you can stay energized during your travels.
It’s always a good idea to keep some stomach/flu medicine with you just in case. If you’re a anxious flyer some anti-anxiety/sleep medication would also be a good idea. It’s hard and sometimes not possible to find medicine while travelling and that’s why you should always carry some with you.
So these are the 5 essentials I can’t travel without. What are some essentials you can’t travel without? Let me know in the comments below or simply stop by and say hi!

I never forget about slippers
Yes of course!
I bring all of that except the make up lol 🙂
That last part in itinerary is so important that if you miss it, it could totally ruin your travel.
Books and snacks are my fuel so I can never forget them at home 😅
Same I can absolutely not travel without them!
Well I do four out of five – so that’s not bad. Though I do include nail clippers and a razor – and a bag for dirty clothes!
Yeah I need to start taking the bag for dirty clothes with me too!
I download movies and books and custom playlist then I don’t have to worry about using wifi at the airport or dead spots on the road. Did you know Netflix let’s you download episodes?
Yeah I heard about that I think that’s a really good idea!
Great list! All things that should be common sense but, at least for me, it is SO easy to forget the most obvious things!! Haha!
It is super easy to forget especially since you’re stressed about travelling and packing!
As much as I hate taking medicine it’s always the first thing that I pack. The one time I forgot my medicine I was dying for it and needed it because I had an unknown cause of an allergy attack 🤦🏻♀️
That’s horrible and yes medicine is so essential!
Reblogged this on Elemental Cooks & Books and commented:
In honor of my upcoming trip to Mexico!
Thanks for the reblog and have a great trip!
Nice tips Pooja.
Except that extra pair of clothing is never an issue with us, and it’s about extra box just for the extra clothing and never used
You are welcome Pooja
I agree with most, except that I generally prefer music to reading while travelling, just a personal preference (and reading can cause motion sickness for some).
Yeah I guess it depends on the person.
I hate reading but I’ve grown to love audiobooks. Keeps your mind thinking and you don’t have to worry about motion sickness! 👍🏽
Glad you agree!
😄tq for sharing….it was awesome
Thanks glad you enjoyed it!

Thanks I’ll check them out!
Yes to the snacks!! As someone who gets hangry often I definitely like that suggestion! Haha
That’s right but the make up is for the ladies☺
Yeah that one is less general

Extra clothing is a biggie…especially if taking a suitcase, putting a spare pair of clothes in your carry on bag is great for accidental spillages or lost luggage!
Yes absolutely agree!

Thank you so much and nice to meet you too!
My pleasure!! 😊
I like to put fluffy socks in my bag to put on and be cosy on the plane ha ha!
Lol I think I’m going to copy that!
These essentials are so true! I’d probably also add a toothbrush and toothpaste just in case(:
Oh right yes!
One that that I always bring is my Passport to Your National Parks book. It has been so fun getting stamps. Always try to keep it in my backpack. 🙂 Here is a link to read more: https://myfamilyguide.com/national-parks-more-than-the-grand-canyon/
That sounds fun! I’ll check it out.
My five must haves are: my husband, my camera, books, my travel journal, sun lotion.
Aww those are great!
Reading material and snacks are essential, especially for those long bus rides or delayed flights!
Reading materials, yes! I don’t bring books, though, instead I carry my Kindle reader with me when I travel.
Yeah I think a lot of people are doing that these days!
snacks, right there you caught me. There is always some travel snack. Mostly the one we pick from the destination
Haha same though!
I’ve recently added face masks and lip balm to my travel kit. The air on those planes are so drying. Now I feel like I can’t live without em
Ooh face masks that’s a good idea I think I’ll add that next time!
I always got a few things with me. My biomatrick passport. Even if I don’t need it. A powerpack for my phone, a charger cable. A plug with 3 difference plugs (for europe, english and Japan) and a bag
Yeah those are all important things for sure.
These are good! I once got stranded in central america and was so glad I had an extra pair of clothes to spend the night at an hotel provided by the airline.
Thanks and I had a similar experience and the extra clothes were a lifesaver!
