What to Pack?
Packing for a trip is exciting but also can be slightly confusing. You can see on the left what it looks like when I start to pack. I have compiled a list of my top items I always tell travelers to pack with a brief description on why I like the items. There might be some specific items for specific trips but the items listed below would be a great addition to any trip you go on. Click on the picture or link to bring you to the Amazon page for the product.
Money Belt or Necklace: I prefer the one around my neck, but many people prefer one that goes around the waist. A matter of personal preference. Click here for Amazon link.
Portable Battery Backup: It is incredibly annoying when your phone or e-reader dies. If you bring a backup, you can prevent this. Anker is a great brand that is well tested. This one is extremely lightweight but comes with two USB slots so you can charge two devices at once. This charges a very low iPhone to full in about 2 hours. Click here for Amazon link.
On-the-Go Day Pack
Small Day Pack: Osprey makes great packs and this is a nice light one that can be convenient for a water bottle, small first aid kit and snacks for the day. Please note that backpacks are not allowed in the Vatican or at a few of the other museums. Click here for Amazon link.
