Definitely my Kindle. One of the best inventions ever, since I always read quite a lot, which saves me bringing/buying about 5 books in a 2 week holiday :). Other than that I never leave without a medicine kit and some 'emergency' stuff.

I suppose another way of looking at it would be, the loss of which 5 things would you miss most if you had everything stolen whilst travelling !!

1. Passport
2. Money, credit card
3. Laptop
4. Camera
5. A change of clothes

But, to answer the original question, the standard passport and money -

1. Swiss army knife - even if you only use the knife to cut bread !
2. A bungee chord (not for jumping of bridges, the ones with hooks at each end) - very useful for drying clothes etc.
3. Head torch - not just for avid mountaineers - great for power cuts.
4. A decent pair of trousers with zip pockets.
5. A neck warmer.

4. lamp (any kind of light, small enough to fit a pocket)

First of all, I'm not a backpacker!

1. iPhone/iPad
2. iPod
3. Novels
4. Money
5. Clothes

I'm pretty big on entertainment.
