For me it is enough to read a good guide book and look at a good road map. With that and Google Maps I can plan all our trips exactly.

Hi,BeateR.
Thanks for your recommendation.
But I'm doubted that it is enough to read a good guide book and look at a good road map for you.
I concluded others opinions;
a torch and a Swiss army knife
a good pair of walking shoes and a mini vacuum sucker to airtight clothes.
a traveller instant hot water flask
a sleeping bag
and so on.
Hope it's helpful.
You can also share with me some of the things you fond very useful to take while you were travelling. Thanks.

Maybe you are right.
A torch and good walking shoes is so "normal", that I'd not mentioned it.
But what for should I need a vacuum sucker if I pack lightly.
And what for a hot water flask? And a sleeping bag? It needs a lot of space.

"What you take depends on where you are going. And also has changed over time. "A hot water flask may be useful in winter; a sleeping bag is for those who put a tent outside.
You can freely choose whether these gadgets are suitable for you. It's up to you.

Of course.
You asked and I answered MY opinion.

Good guide books have gone the way of buggy whips. That's what I did in the past. But the problem with a guide book is that if it reviews restaurants and hotels, it is out of date before it gets printed. If I have bought a guide (and not just taken it out of the library), I have, in the past, just ripped out the pages that I thought would be useful. I do like to have a paper map and not just Google maps on my phone. But neither a guide book nor a map is really what I would call a travel accessory.

The only real travel accessories I travel with is a scrubber bag as I have found it very useful for making hand washing much easier and quicker, a power cube/board so I can charge all my electronics without having to worry if there is enough power points and this tiny contraption that helps lock doors if they have a dodgy lock. I also carry a filter water bottle which in some countries whose water quality is questionable I would say is a necessity but other countries whose water is safe I take the filter out and use like a normal bottle so then it would count more like an accessory.

Ok, so I'm generally a fairly light packer. I prefer to take less stuff and buy things if I realise I really need them when I get there. However, there is one thing that I take from home .. and that is our Aeropress coffee maker. It's small and makes coffee just the way I like it and it's plastic so it won't break easily. I realise not everyone is going to consider that to be so important, but I do like the consistency of being able to wake up and make a coffee how I want to.

Oh so important for a good day!

The water flask that I mentioned in my earlier post is something that I bought not too long ago. It as big as a usual tumbler bottle which it can double up as also. Hook it up a power point, and in a minute or two, your hot water is there. Very handy when travelling with infants or for ladies always on the go.
