Travel Essentials

As we have been planning our journey we have realised how useful travel essentials are. We must have looked at about 7 different websites and blogs each of them have provided us with something to add to our list. So we thought we would share what our own travel essential list looks like. It might help somebody out there, who’s planning a trip.


We have decided for our main luggage that we will use a travel backpack each. One is 85l and one is 65l. We sussed that these backpacks would be a lot easier to manage when travelling through the different countries, getting on trains and buses. We also have 20l back packs for the front our chest, we figured these could be our hand luggage which will have all of our valuable items in. Lastly we ordered a money belt, one of which is meant to be unseen. You can put it underneath your t-shirt with money and cards in and no one would realise. We ordered this off amazon.


Obviously going for a one year trip around the world we will need various amounts of luggage and different things. We decided to order some air tight packs. We can organise our clothes and underwear into sections for the different places we are going. For example, we are going to Thailand where it will be hot and then we are also going to Australia for 6 months so the weather could vary. So we can separate our clothes. To help us stay organised! This might work and it might not. We will certainly let you know when we find out haha! You have to try or you will never know!

Travel health is really important, the last thing you want when your on your trip is to be ill. Make sure you get insurance! And also make sure you get all the specific vaccinations for the areas in the world you are planning to visit.

  • Prescriptions
