This is a good time to grab the tools that you need to be ready for anything while traveling. Below is a list of items that I’ve found to be most helpful.
1. Utili-Key 6-in-1 Key chain Multi-Tool
What I like about this on is that it fits on my key chain, passes through airport security and allows me to have a small knife, two screwdrivers, and a bottle opener without having to remember to pack it because it stays on my key chain.
2. Pocket First Aid Kit
When I was traveling in a village in India recently I scraped my head on a dirty doorway. I was nervous about being out in the middle of nowhere with a cut. Because I had my handy first-aid kit, I was able to treat it and by the next day the cut was on the way to healing. Could have been a big problem if it got infected.
I always travel with a flashlight. When I’m out at night or need to take a dark hotel stairway it is nice to be able to see. This model has low and high intensity as well as strobe modes.
4. World Time Watch
While traveling it is important to have a reliable watch that you can adjust to the correct timezone. This also helps in mentally preparing your body to adjust to the right time zone while flying.
5. Leatherman Wingman Multi-Tool
When away from home, it is nice to have one tool that can help you get out of a bind if needed. This Leatherman Muli-tool is compact and will keep you ready for any predicament. Plan to check this in your luggage rather than carry it on.
6. Passport Wallet
I have a phobia that I’m going to show up in some country without a valuable travel document. This passport case allows me to keep all my documents including currency, credit cards, and coins together in one spot. It also adds to security and privacy with a RFID blocker.
7. TSA Compliant Carry on Travel Toiletry Bag
Tired of having to find and separate your shampoo for the TSA scanners? This TSA approved bag allows you to keep everything together so that you can just put it on the scanner belt.
8. Moleskine Passions Travel Journal
Often after completing a trip I try to remember something that I learned or need help in remembering the name of someone who I met. This travel journal is perfect for keeping all the trip notes and bits of information in one handy place.
9. Travel First Aid Kit for Teams
This first aid kit can be tossed into a suitcase and meet most first-aid needs of a group that is traveling together.
10. Travel Tooth Brush
When I get to my last stop, I’m glad that I carry an extra toothbrush in my carry-on bag so that I can get refreshed after my last flight.
