What the experts who travel alone always pack


Traveling alone can be a challenging yet rewarding adventure!  To make the most out of this experience and avoid finding yourself in a sticky situation, make sure you have the essentials! See what expert solo travelers never leave home without…


- Portable charger

You never know when your phone is going to run out of juice. Between directions, translation apps and capturing every second of your travels, your phone is putting in a lot of work. Keep a portable charger with you so you don’t run out of battery at an inopportune time.


- Multiple port charger

This allows you to charge more than one device at a time! If you only have 20 minutes before you catch your next train, this port revs up all your devices, not just one!


- Zip pocket jacket

Bringing a durable jacket that has zip pockets is always a good idea. The zip pockets help keep your belongings from falling out and safe from pick pocketers. You’ll feel more confident walking around if you’re not worried about your personal possessions!


- A copy of your passport

This is a “better safe than sorry” rule! If you were to misplace your passport abroad, having a copy makes it easier to get it replaced at a U.S. Embassy. Make a copy before you travel – keep it in your suitcase and store a copy on your phone.


- A few plastic baggies in different sizes

Having a few clean baggies will come in handy for a plethora of situations! If you want to bag up some leftovers, collect seashells from a foreign land or quickly pack a wet swimsuit, having bags of all different sizes will save you stress and time while traveling!


- Favorite sickness curing remedies and first-aid kit

You never know when you may slip and fall or find yourself feeling a little ill while traveling. Plan ahead and pack what you may need just in case. Whether you’re in to natural sickness remedies or prefer to take a Zpack and two Advil, always travel with some extras. It can often be difficult to find your personal favorite sickness cure.
