I’ve traveled to a bunch of places around the globe the past year and I guess it’s safe to say that it made me an “expert” on what to bring during trips. At least that’s what I think! But throughout the years, I finally realized that I only need a few travel essentials to survive my trip. NCCC Mall’s newest Travel lifestyle Department just launched last December 1, 2017 and I was lucky enough to get first dibs on the items they are offering to travelers. Basically, Biyahero 001 offers affordable but of high quality products to complete a traveler’s journey. I was happy I got to shop for travel essentials that I will practically use for my next trip. Here are the top 5 travel essentials I scored in Biyahero 001 in NCCC Mall of Davao:
1. TOTE BAG
When traveling for a whole day in a different city/country, my priority is not to carry a lot of things. I’ve had my fair share of using tiny bags that are not that useful for my travel lifestyle at all. I would usually go for a back pack or a tote bag depending on my mood and my outfit. Tote bags are very practical when you travel; you just slip and slide the bag in your shoulders and stuff all your things inside in one piece. And I can finally easily slip my big camera inside! This particular tote bag from G.Ride totally caught my eye when I shopped in Biyahero 001 because of its sleek design and affordable price. Totally a great deal!
2. WATER BOTTLE
I think this water bottle will not be only a staple during my out-of-town trips but everyday. One of my resolutions this year is to drink a lot of water wherever I go and this water bottle’s size is just perfect (not to bulky and not too small) for when I travel to tropical and humid countries because it fits right in and compliments my tote bag perfectly. Sorry, I’m a sucker for everything coordinated. Lol! Whenever I travel, I try to save my money by just bringing a water bottle in my bag because in some countries, water is quite expensive. A small-sized water can go up to 150 Pesos. It’s crazy!
3. PHONE WALLET
Whenever I travel, I make sure my gadgets (specifically phone) are safe and I’m happy I scored this Phone Wallet from Halo that has a lot of card compartments and right amount of space to snuck in my phone. I can easily slide this in my bag and I know my cards, money and phone will be safe!
4. SMALL POUCH
I don’t know about you but I like to bring emergency essentials too! And storing it in this two compartment pouch will definitely make my life a bit organized. I’ll probably place my medicines, band-aids and whatnot in the first compartment and to make my life easier, because I bring a big makeup bag, I’ll put my powder, liptint, lipstick, lip scrub and blotting sheets on the other side. Now that sounds organized! 😉
5. PERSONAL CARE BAG
The last item I bought is toiletries or personal care bag. I like my personal stuff to be stored in one place and this personal care bag is definitely a travel essential for people. It makes life way easier with the right amount of compartment for my shampoo, lotion, perfume and etc. Aside from its cute polka dot design, I like how you can hang this bag in your hotel bathroom easily because it has a hook at the end of the bag’s flap. Totally convenient and it makes life 100 times organized.
That is about it! Those are my Top 5 Travel Essentials to survive my trip. A good tote bag is all you need to roam around the city, a small-sized water bottle will definitely save you from spending a lot of cash, a phone wallet is a must to secure your stuff, a small pouch to store your makeup and emergency needs and a personal care bag for all your toiletries. It’s not much but these things will surely make my travel more easier because organizing your stuff while traveling is the secret to a hassle free trip! 🙂
