    Minimalist Travel Guide: Packing Must-Haves

    Minimalist Travel Guide: Packing Must-Haves

    For most people, an ideal trip includes a hotel, a plane ticket and countless cocktails by the pool. Not for me. Before I was born my parents were campers and they traveled through Europe and Asia with nothing but their tent and backpacks. Having a child didn’t change them that much, and I am so grateful for that. My childhood was filled with exciting adventures, sleeping underneath the stars, imagination, and bruises from playing outside and I wouldn’t change a thing. Today, backpacking is in my blood and I can’t wait for my vacation so I can just pack the essentials and hit the road. I’ve spent years polishing my packing list and learning which things should be left at home. When you are traveling the last thing you want is to be slowed down by your luggage, and believe me, most things you think you cannot live without will just weigh you down. On the other hand, regardless of whether you will be staying in a hotel or sleeping in a tent, there are several things that need to find their place in your backpack or you will find yourself in a bit of a pickle. So, without further ado, here is a list of things I always carry with me when I am on the road.
