  • unexpected must haves: 5 things i will aways travel with

    The more I travel, the easier it is for me to decide what to bring. Through plenty of trial and error, I’ve found a couple things that I’ll always bring with me. P O W E R   B A N K Bless my power bank. I only just recently bought one, but it’s quickly become something I NEED. I personally like one that has multiple charges on it.

  • unexpected first aid: the one thing i will always carry with me

    First aid! Something so important for travelers to carry! I personally stock a small pharmacy with me on the road, and it’s been used a countless amount of times. If there’s ONE thing I’ll ALWAYS pack, it’s Cipro. I took this to Nepal with me when trekking a month in the Annapurna Region.

It’s not too expensive, so your travel funds won’t be used up! The…
