Parachute chord, electrical tape

- and you say Sweetjenny is weird

5 things for me? I mean I carry a lot more than that, but 5 essentials? Mmmm.
A pen
A good book (non-fiction, always)
A packet of plasters (sometimes called 'Band aids')
A loo roll (don't attempt to do an Eastern European train without one close to hand ! !)
A diary

T.P. ("loo roll" to you Brits)
pen and paper
guidebook or city map of the next destination
phrasebook or English-Other dictionary
a big bag of snacks (for train or bus)

Five things (outside the basics) that I would never leave home without:

- Digital camera
- Notepad and pen
- Playstation portable loaded with games and movies
- A decent non-fiction book to read (soon to be replaced with an ereader I hope ;))
- chargers and travel adaptors so I can keep the above running!

Quoting rasheeed

Time. Patience.


My 5:
-Internet/GPS tool (like an iPod touch or a smartphone)
-Black shirt
-Jacket with lots of inside pockets
-Walletstuffs (Credit Card/ID/Passport/$)

I guess shoes/socks/undies would be "given"

That would have to be:

1. Ipod
2. PSP
4. Wallet
5. Watch

Just simple things that I need to have most of the time. :)

Quoting sepilokfui

1 ATM card
1 Credit card
300 US dollars (very important for last minute backup)
2 Universal Plug converter (I always have 1 broken along the way because of voltage)
2 Pens
1 notebook
1 lighter (I don't smoke, but very useful for trekker)
1 small torch light or head lamp (bring along 1 set of new battery)
1 multi purpose knife
2 locks
n plastic or ziplock bags (good for the rainy season)

that is all I can think of.

in places like Thailand, you can find dental floss/shampoo/conditioner/lotion/etc in small traveling size packaging in 7-Eleven and cheaper than home, so no point to bring a lot.

Rally this is so important & Helpful information for everyone...
