Are you a first or regular traveler around this world? Yes, I am. Being a traveler, I have learned from experience about my journey that there are the same things I should always travel with because they make my life so much easier. This is a list of my personal travel must-haves; use it as your personal checklist when I travel to anywhere!

What could you bring  in your travel bag to make your life better? Here it is a check list of mine.

Travel can be stressful and need to plan carefully. You want to get your flight on time and be ready for it. And, you want to make sure you have everything you need in hand, but nothing more than that because you are the one that has to move your luggage (s) and carry-on from door to door.

Below is a list of all of the things that you may want (or need) to have at your fingertips during the course of your trip.

These are items that will save you hassle (and some will even save you money) if you pack them in your carry-on bag or luggage the next time you head out of country or home tome

Airline tickets

AIR TICKET

AIR TICKET

AIR TICKET , you can print it out at the airport if you’d like, but you will save yourself a lot of time if you check in (ONLINE)  at home (most allow you to complete the check in process up to 24 hours in advance). Then you don’t have to wait in line at the kiosks at the airport. You can go straight to security and head to your gate. When I travel, I have a folder that contains all of my tickets, car rental and hotel VOUCHER so that it is all at my bagpack. Having your travel itinerary and booking receipts for your airline and accommodation on hand makes it easy for you while traveling.


Empty water bottle

A bottle of water at airport is so expensive, and moreover, we can not bring it in our our baggage carry on when check in. There is another way. Pack an empty water bottle in your carry-on and you can fill it at the drinking fountain after you’ve made it through the pat down and x-rays. That way, you can drink as much as you like for free. (Travelers have the tendency to get dehydrated, so the more water you consume, the better.)

 

Snacks

Food is also expensive like drink. Sometime we can get what that taste our tongue. Instead paying  for those expensive, why not plan to take some snack in your carry on backpack like a sandwich, cookey and cake from your town. Even if you purchase the same exact thing at your local grocery store, chances are good that you’re going to pay a lot less for them. Try to choose a snack that has proteins and carbohydrates so that it keeps your hunger at bay for longer. A good example of this would be crackers with cheese or peanut butter. You could also go with beef jerky and pretzels if that suits your taste buds mo

 Local Currency

Local money

Local money

Money, Money, Money, we can not go to travel around the world without pay attention on this. Some country accept forieng country, and some are not accept. The traveller must change it to local currency to buy or use some service. Go to your local money changer and get your money changed before you go. Some changers offer better rates than others, so do your research first if you are planning to change large amounts of money. For those of you in Cambodia, Money changes at Lee Hour Exchange Money ( in Sangkat Vealvong) and near local market offer pretty good rates than bank.

Passport and Visa

Passport—goes without saying. Perhaps the more useful point to ensure your passport is not within six months of expiration date—airlines will not let you check in otherwise. For visa, make sure you look up the visa requirements for the country you are traveling to. If you require a visa, budget sufficient time to get the visa before you travel. Visa HQ is your one-stop spot to check visa requirements.

Debit Card

Debit Card

Debit Card

With a debit card, you can withdraw money at any ATM anywhere at a nominal fee. (I use the ABA Debit Card powered by Visa which charges $5  per transaction, depend on amount that I get it.) With that card, it will help you to buy some goods and some service with online or at store. I have use my card when I go shopping in US and buy a bus ticket by online service, too. But before you leave your country, make sure to contact your local bank and tell them about your travel destination and ask them about your card is acceptable to use in that country. Make sure your remark your money that use per day for buying goods or service on online and your cash that you withdraw from other banks, PLEASE consult with your bank consultant.

Notebook and Pen

Last but not least, I can never travel without my notebook and pen. There are times when I run out of battery for my laptop while commuting, when I want to brainstorm on ideas, or when I simply want to quickly pen down some thoughts and ideas, and these are times when my notebook and pen come in handy. For you, your notebook can serve as a travel log. Not only that, traveling makes for a great opportunity for self-reflection. Use your notebook to jot down your reflections on self and life and possible plans for your life moving forward post the travel.
