Oh and a tiny sewing kit, just a couple of needles, a thread and some extra buttons.
Made my life allot easier, plus it takes no space.

A door wedge to use in those dodgy guest houses with no locks on the bathroom door!

Pocket PC, charger and memory sticks. The memory sticks are packed with MP3s, electronic books (normally cribbed from Project Gutenberg and converted to ebook format) and various videos. Being a Pocket PC, it also has my travel planning software, blogging software, etc.

Did I mention I was a nerd?

the guitar. unfortunately, i just can't live without her. (the last trip i took without my guitar was 3 weeks long and i was going crazy). it's big and bulky but i've met lots of cool people jamming in random places, and i've written some of my nicest songs while travelling.

Laptop and GPS.

THe laptop just does too much to leave behind. Internet, organizing/storing pictures, writing, etc. I'm not crazy about logging into secure financial sites at hostels or internet cafes - it's great to use my own computer.

Quoting Rubymurray

Hi TP regulars

Yes I know it's Christmas day but I'm addicted to this site, what can I say?!

I had a look in the forum archives for this thread and found it in 2004 so I thought I would start a fresh one, I can only apologise if it's been done recently and I missed it.

Just let everyone know what the one thing you couldn't live without was on your travels, I think people like myself who are off on there first trip RTW will find some of the tips of you more experienced travellers very helpful.

Thanks in advance Ruby

Answer is my enthusism

I don't go anywhere without my Swiss Army knife with a bottle opener and corkscrew. Extremely necessary... specially the bottle opener bit
