Sneakers are a must when you travel especially when you have a lot of wandering in mind. Walking the city streets isn’t so hard on your feet when you have a comfortable pair of sneakers on. Bringing high heels is optional depending on the activities you want to impart in. Flip-flops are must-haves when you are planning to hit the beach.

2. Toiletries


Travelling would be uncomfortable when you don’t have a toothbrush or soap to keep your hygiene. Bringing along travel size toiletries will save you a lot of frustration and time. Even when your hotel provides them, it is better that you bring yours so you are sure of the quality.

3. A good book
