Since I have to carry everything that I buy, I’ve had to learn how to travel pretty minimally, which means the things that I do buy are exponentially more important to me. It’s taken me a few years to learn what the best travel gear is, mostly through trial and error.
My travel gear works for me, but it may not work for you. Because I travel so often, and because I don’t want to be replacing my gear every few months, the quality of what I choose to use is of utmost importance. Cost is the next determining factor, but I think you’ll find that the items I use are pretty reasonably priced.
I travel with two bags—one on my back and one on the front. This also means I travel carry-on only everywhere I go. For more information on how I pack, and I how I get away with never having to check a bag, you might like this post on how I travel carry-on only.
It’s not easy figuring out what to carry, and what to carry it in. Aside from my clothes and my toiletries, this is almost everything I own!

Running a travel blog means I have to travel with slightly more/different equipment than most. Weight and size of electronics are big factors, but everything here easily fits into my two bags. What you see below is essentially my mobile office!
