Planning To Go For A Trip? Keep These Things In Your Backpack


Travelling can get really tough if you don’t know the things that you need to carry with you. I have seen several incidents where people carry too much luggage that they don’t even need. One thing that you should keep in mind is that when you are traveling, you are going to a place to enjoy and relax. It’s not like you are changing your house. So try to keep your luggage small and only add things that you are going to need on your trip.

Keeping extra luggage will just disturb you and it also takes extra space and more care. Instead, you should add things that you might need in a state of emergency. You should keep extra batteries or power banks with you so that in case of any emergency where you run out of batteries then you can use these things.

Keeping extra water with is also beneficial on long trips and if you are going by yourself then you should also keep some tools and tire with you. Similarly, keep your documents close to you. So that if in any case, you need them, they don’t get lost. The following is the list of items that you should take with you.


Food is the most important thing to keep in your backpack. The only problem is that you can’t keep cooked food with yourself on long trips. So you should keep foods that can be used on the go. Foods like powder bone broth, tuna can, veggie sticks, and canned meat. These are some of the food items that you should keep in your car or backpack. So if you get hungry during your journey and can’t find any restaurant nearby, you won’t have a problem.


Always keep some spare clothes with you. The reason is that you will never know when you are going to need them. This has happened to me and where my clothes bag got stolen, and luckily I had some spare clothes in my car that saved my trip. This is why keeping a set of spare clothes is really important in your trip. Whether you have a short or long trip, it doesn’t matter. You should keep it with you.


In reality, there are tons of toiletries that you need during your travel. As we are keeping our luggage to only important things then you should add these things to your backpack.

  • Toothbrush
  • Shampoo
  • Insect repellent
  • Shaving kit
  • Hairbrush
  • Soap
  • Bandages and first aid kit

These are some of the most important toiletries that you should have in your backpack. You can add some other things but these are the must-have things on your trip.


Like I mentioned before that electronic need batteries or a power supply. Here you need a camera to capture all your moments, mobile phone, and power banks. These are some of the important things that you need. Also, keep a travel charger with you. They are usually universal and can be used in any plug you find.  You can add other things that you might need but these things are always on top of my list.


If you are planning to go to some other city on a flight or a bus then carry-on things are very important. Try to have these things in your carry-on bag.

  • Books
  • Copy of your documents
  • Cash
  • Healthy Snack
  • Headphones
  • Guidebook
  • Pen and paper
  • Medication
  • Valuables

These are some of the carry-on things that I keep with myself during tours that I take on flight or bus. If you want to add anything else that you value a lot and don’t really want to include in your bag then feel to add it in your carry-bag.


Traveling is fun and if you have the proper knowledge and guidance of how to travel then it will become more fun for you. Keeping your luggage small and with things that you really need is important. I have listed out a few things that I love to keep in my backpack. If there is anything else that you think is important. Like laptops or travel blankets then do keep them with you. So the next time you go on a trip, try to add these things in your backpack.
