20 Essential Travel Items You Cannot Forget to Pack

So you’re about to embark on your new adventure, you look to your backpack and you’re not sure if you’ve packed everything you need. Worry not! I’m here to help you! Here are 20 things to never leave home without:

1. Day Backpack

It’s like your regular travel backpack, but smaller. Ideal to carry a bottle of water, some food and small items like sunglasses when you’re out and about and don’t want to lug around a huge bag.

3. Credit Cards

Probably number two on the most “wanted” list. Unless you prefer carrying lots of cash or traveler’s cheques with you all the time, credit and debit cards are the best option.

Mini Guide to Thailand

Thailand is affectionately called the “Land of Smiles” and for good reason: everyone seems to genuinely welcome visitors. The country is the most visited in Southeast Asia, offering a wide range of attractions, cultural experiences, and amazing biodiversity. The country is a newly industrialized economy with a high level of human development. So, it’s easy to understand why it attracts so many tourists when they can have a top-notch experience without having to spend a fortune.

Mini Guide to Indonesia

Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world with just over 17,000 islands. It has a population of roughly 261 million people, though over half lives on the island of Java. The nation has a long trading history with other Asian countries and has also been invaded by the Dutch and English Empires. Indonesia is therefore a melting pot of cultures with the largest Muslim population in the world, but also with strong influences from Hinduism and Buddhism, particularly in Bali. It’s also a nature lover’s paradise, with plenty of fauna, volcanoes, beaches, and diving sites.

Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean at 109,884 square kilometers, and the second-most populous. It consists of the island of Cuba, Isla de la Juventud, and many small archipelagos.
