These 11 carry-on travel essentials have been game changers since we started traveling full-time in March 2021. Traveling with just carry-ons can be a challenge and these items help us keep our packs lightweight while staying under the liquid limits for flights. If you are planning to travel this year, these 11 travel essentials are our favourite travel items that you need to pack for your next trip!

Packing for travel is all about functionality. From clothing to electronics to toiletries, you will want every item you bring to have a purpose and to serve that purpose well! Whether you are going away for a weekend girls trip, a two week European vacation, or an epic round-the-world backpacking adventure, you will want to make sure everything you pack is easy to use, good quality (there is nothing worse than your stuff breaking while you’re on holiday!), and makes your travel experience more comfortable.

Something we learned early on in our travels is that packing things that make our life more comfortable and simple are super important to us! We LOVE that travel takes us out of our comfort zone, but that doesn’t mean we want to feel uncomfortable 24/7! These carry on travel essentials help us feel comfortable while embracing the discomfort that inherently comes with doing our favourite thing in the world: travel.

Hey there! We are Nicole and Mico, full-time travel vloggers searching for adventures all around the globe. In March 2021 we quit our jobs, sold our belongings, and hopped on our first ever one-way flight leaving our home country #Canada. We believe #travel builds understanding that reaches across culture, language, and boundaries, and we want to share our experiences as we create connections all over the world. If you like learning about unique places, new cultures and different foods, then come follow our adventure as we explore all our beautiful planet has to offer.
