What Should I Pack as a Solo Traveler?
Share this

Confused?. What to carry and what not to carry in your travel bag?. Have you always being in a situation where you always pack up everything and end up being heavy?. You don’t need a lot of things to travel, you only require the most important things. I have being a solo traveler for many years so, I have reached out to a point where I could carry a constant list of things. Many of you may feel that some of the things that you feel important may be missing in the list but I assure you that this list helps me in the whole trip and always had worked for me well.

Be as precise about what you need. Being having a single backpack that fits everything you need and is light helps you all the way in your trip. Pack up the most requisite things only and if at all you need something you can access easily to it on the way or in the destination point and remember it is not too hard to find.


Everyone has different styles of packing the things up and the list of things mentioned by me can vary from individual to individual. Getting a small backpack that fits the most important things won’t tempt you to overpack and won’t force you to take the inessential things.

My travel list to carry

The Carrier (Backpack)

The list of my tried and true methods and things that I have packed up for solo trips. The best travel bag that I prefer is NOMATIC 40L TRAVEL BAG which I felt enough for all the requisite things. You can choose the bag that is more comfortable to you.

What kind of Clothes?

Confused?. How many pairs?. Which all to pick up?. You might have the tendency to clear off your wardrobe, right?. But don’t even dare to.
Be practical, take off only few dresses that are required, you can find cheap clothing store or buy it on road.
