Ultimate World Traveler Packing List for Hassle-Free Adventures


Traveling around the world can be one of the most freeing adventures you'll ever experience. Just right before you embark on your adventure, you must also figure out what you’re going to bring with you. Depending on how long you’ll be gone for, you’ll be needing different amounts of certain items. Or maybe you’re thinking to yourself, “What will I need a year from now?” This world travelers packing list will help mitigate that problem so that you can go on your travels without any worries. One important rule is no liquids above 3.4 ounces. Try to buy smaller shampoo and conditioner bottles. Also bring a small deodorant and mouthwash. You can also buy one of those small kits with the empty bottles and fill them up with what you already have at home. It's just important to mention so you don't get your expensive items thrown out. It's also smart to bring a zip lock or two just in case your liquids spill. You can always double bag it.

World Travelers Packing List

Rule of Thumb

The rule of thumb for clothing is to pack light. Remember, you don't have a lot of space, and you'll need to wash on the go. The more lightweight clothes that you pack, such as more synthetic materials, the easier the wash and go process will be. As hard as it is to transition from a full closet, to a backpack, you'll be learning a lot through your journey by going the minimalist route. These are some key items to make sure that you bring with you:
