One of the most surprising things people discover about me when I travel is that I only bring a carry-on backpack. Some people utilize packing cubes and others bring multiple bags, but I manage to fit all of my travel gear in my carry-on. Regardless if I’m going to a warm Caribbean island or the fridge north or if I’m going for a week or a month, I fit it all into one bag. While I don’t pack the same clothes for every trip, these are the things I bring no matter where I go.
As a frequent traveler, I invest in practical gear that is lightweight and will last for years. The gear I use may not work for everyone and I carry extra electronic equipment to maintain this travel blog. All travelers have different tastes and requirements while on the road.
The following gear list is just what I’ve found works best for my particular travel style.
