5 Favourite Travel Products


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:

5 things I always bring wherever and whenever I travel.

Passport holder

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.

A knitted tube scarf

Easy to wear, can double up as either my “blanket” or my “pillow” in the airplane.

Slip on sneakers

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!

A Kipling Seoul laptop backpack

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.

  1. hi Alanda,

    I am interested in knowing if Kindle is able to work in Indonesia. by work, I mean I could buy and download book from Amazon.

    Thanking you in advance!

    • Hi Ridho, I honestly do not know. My partner bought me a Kindle in Melbourne, and we are using our Australian bank account (credit card) to make payments. I assume you can use it in Indonesia, but you have to use an overseas credit card, maybe?
