Traveling has played a big role in my life since I was 17. Since then, I have been traveling a lot to different cities and sometimes different countries due to my work. Packing light has never been my virtue, but I do not usually travel heavily either.
Here are my favourite travel products that I always bring wherever and whenever I go:
I swear by MUJI’s products, especially their travel range. In Indonesia, MUJI is not that affordable (at least according to my standards), so I bought only two items that I know I will use the most. I love their travel documents organiser (a.k.a. passport holder!) and hanging travel case.
Easy to wear, can double up as either my “blanket” or my “pillow” in the airplane.
Actually, any pair of sneakers will do, because I think it’s way more comfortable to have long walks through the big halls of airport lounges in sneakers rather than in boots or ballerina flats. I like slip ons better as they are easy to put on and take off.
I used to bring a couple of books for long haul flights, but since Adit got me a Kindle reader as a birthday gift, I cannot travel without it. For me, it is way more comfortable to read on a Kindle than a tablet as it does not hurt my eyes and the battery lasts way longer — even for weeks!
I first got myself a Kipling when I was 13 years old. I got a small backpack and I had been using it on a daily basis ever since. Turns out, it lasted for more than 10 years! So, when I was 23, I finally got myself a new one. I admire Kipling because of its durable and light material. It also has distinctive prints. I choose a Seoul backpack as I can fit many things into it, including my laptop. Most of the time, I only need this bag to bring all of my carry-on items. It also fits into under the seat in front of me while in the airplane.
