This is my favorite section. Good gear sets you apart from the average, everyday traveler and elevates you to James Bond status instantly. Basically everything below is a must in my book, and I think you will quickly agree. Instead of a zip-lock quart bag for your liquids, upgrade to a carry-on approved clear zip up liquid bag (advertised size should not exceed about 2.5″ x 7.5″ x 5.5″ otherwise it’s “Fake News” and not really a quart size bag). All liquids, gels, and pastes must be 100ml (3.4 oz) or less. You can purchase these sizes in travel sections of your local walmart/target, or make your own with some TSA approved silicone bottle sets. Bring another toiletry bag for all the non-liquid items; toothbrush, make-up, lightsaber, etc. Neck and back pillows, especially inflatable ones to adjust the perfect size and stow away easily for the rest of your travels, will be your saving grace in row 237 seat K17 of the 9 hour flight, and every bus and train ride as well. Keep your cables, chargers, and power adaptors all together in a small bright color bag, easy to find in the dark. Speaking of power adaptors… you’ll need the correct power adaptor(s) for the country(s) you’ll be visiting. For: Generic Europe Adaptor (Type C) – Italy Adapter (Type L) – Greece/Spain/Germany/France Adapter (Type E/F) – England UK/Hong Kong Adapter (Type G) – Australia/China Adapter (Type I). Or, better yet, consider an international multi-country power adapter that will work in probably 80% of the world. For most hotel rooms in Europe outlets are an endangered species and only 1 – 2 outlets will be found in the whole room, so consider how many items you need to charge, and plan accordingly. Next recommendation is a portable battery pack to charge your phone on the go. If you want a battery that can charge your phone a few times, look for a battery pack with about 10,000 mAh, otherwise if you want the king of batteries and be able to last all week in the Sahara desert with no shelter for 100 miles, look for a battery pack with 24,000 mAh. This is important, so please listen up, open your eyes, and read carefully… Everything you bring MUST be Dual Voltage, or Variable Voltage, meaning the label on it must say Input: 110V – 240V AC. Most of the world uses different voltage than the US, so if your devices are not compatible, they will fry, burn, explode, combust, “insert more scary words here.” Nearly all hotels have hair dryers, but if you need a curling iron or flat iron, you will need to get a specific one with dual voltage! Finally, the recommendation makes a second appearance… packing cubes for your clothes. They’re great – you’re catching on.
