Backpack and Suitcase

While the clothes and shoes I pack in my suitcase for each trip change, the items that go in my backpack stay pretty consistent. Here is the list of my 2019 travel gear.

Here are a few more odds and ends I’ve found essential. Take a day pack or purse with you so that you don’t have to unpack/repack your carry-on to use as a day pack while you’re out and about. Print out confirmations and reservations and stick them in a folder just in case. This was a life-saver when we had limited WiFi or couldn’t speak the local language. Finally, I always carry a notebook and a water bottle.
