So often you will see travel articles suggesting you need all the latest and greatest gadgets to have the best travel experience. The truth is for many less is actually more and leads to a better journey. Even concerning the clothes you pack you could likely survive with less and have a pleasant overall experience. When you are deciding what to bring for your trip, stop and think about how you can travel with less. Then do it, pack less.
Considering this, these items are often recommended as must have gear you shouldn’t dare travel without. However, you would likely be fine leaving these behind at home.
Imagine carrying around a shoulder bag on a regular basis. Whether traveling or commuting, many never consider how this type of bag might weigh you down and even slow you down. If you decide to carry a shoulder bag in spite of this recommendation, be sure to switch shoulders to reduce and balance the pressure between both sides of your body. What’s a better option? A rolling bag or small luggage you can roll around.
Also, consider a small travel neck wallet for small light items and as a document holder.
I think you will agree traveling without most of these things will simply make life easier. If they are a must have, then consider packing them in some sort of rolling bag to have at your fingertips when needed. Remember, the neck wallet for something really small like a cell phone.

Another popular option is to use containers or storage packs. If these will truly help you better organize items then certainly include a few of them. Yes, a few of them. Take only those you feel will help you quickly identify and locate the items you need when you need them. When searching for items it is usually quicker to find a charger in a storage pack rather than trying to remember which pocket in was in. Again, overall this makes for a better travel experience and this is the goal.
