The One Little Thing You Can’t Travel Without

I’ve gone through and asked several traveling females about the one little thing they just can’t travel without. There are some great items in these mini-interviews, all of which are listed below.

If you are a traveling female and want to share your one little thing, drop me a line!

This is a great list so far, but wouldn’t it be better if your one little thing was here as well? I thought so, too! Drop me a line.

      If you are driving internationally and have a handicap placard, remember to bring it. It is legal everywhere in the world.

    A sarong. I purchased several over the years in the caribbean on various islands I’ve visited. They pack super light, and can be used as multipurpose items for example:
    – to sit on at beach sand
    – (if ground dry) trailside rest stop or picnic
    – coverup for sun
    – as skirt over bathingsuit – length depends on preference
    – under sleepingbag at hostels
    – as light blanket
    – cover tent floor
    – turn into a bag to carry stuff
    – a friend of mine wore one as makeshift dress (i havent figured that out yet)
    – cover valuables in rental car
    – fold up as travel pillow
    – roll up as back support
    – for quick privacy outdoors to change clothes etc
    – wall hanging to brighten up ugly room
    – over window to cover light & sleep in (if curtain inadequate or nonexistent)
    – mosquito shield
    – to dry off feet after rinsing sand
    – cover ugly furniture (at home) or dirty untrusted furniture in travel

    The list goes on….
    Tips for sarong multiuse:
    1) Just test first to make sure color wont run if using where may get wet. Some of mine run bold color like crazy regardless how often washed. Others don’t run much or at all.
    2) Bring more than one on a trip since depending on type of use, they need washed. But they dry fast.
    3) Get them cheap and get several. Mine all cost between $6 at Key West tourist trap, to $20 in St Maarten for original hand painted (or so I was told it was; don’t know but it had a big lizard on it so had to have it)

    Duct tape! Repairs tents, coats, luggage even skin (someone I ripped his legal open mountain climbing, deep cut, sealed it with duct tape until he could get medical attention). make a lightweight roll by putting a business-card-sized piece of paper/cardboard on the end, and then wrap up as much or as little as you want to carry.
