Powerbank ang ginagamit ko pag magcharge instead of bringing extension wire. 2 usb port ng powerbank ko plus yung maliit na port para maicharge siya. So habang nagcha-charge ang powerbank, may 2 gadgets (phone and gopro) pa na nakasaksak sa port ng powerbank (sabay silang 3 na nagcha-charge). Feel free to let me know if this is a bad practice.

^^yan din sana share ko sis. Haha. I always bring my extension cord na universal ang sockets at isang travel adaptor.

Per day and/or per lakad din ang pag pack ko ng mga damit, magkakasama na yung undies, top and bottom sa isang tupian para di na magulo yung ibang mga dalang damit at gamit.
Life's a beach....Enjoy!!!

Make sure the place you're going to does not have any power issue. Like on some places in Palawan, they shut their power at 10 am and resumes at 4 pm. Some hotels too have keycards which are use to switch on power. 

So if you plan to leave your power bank/battery charging while you're out and about, it may not be sufficiently charged for your next use. It may be a good idea to bring extra battery pack.

If you travel frequently abroad, I suggest you buy a pocket wifi.  I just bought mine on Shopee.  So every time I travel, I just buy a data sim for it.  A lot cheaper than renting a pocket wifi or subscribing to data on Globe / Smart.  Wala pa naman akong naging problema buying a data sim abroad.  I've used it in Europe, US & Asia.  Super sulit.

This is what I am planning to do on my next travel, should have done this before. Planning to buy one fro Huawei

Paano iset up yung sa pocket wifi? Sa phone mo muna bago ilagay sim card sa pocket wifi?
We don't need more laws, we need implementation.

I had pocket wifi before, to set it up, you will need to secure it with a password that you can share to those you want to share your data. Pupunta ka yata sa website ng pocket wifi mo then set it up there.

If you have an old phone, just have it open and add a sim. Then open mo yung personal hotspot/tethering nung phone so your other devices can discover it and receive data from it.

It depends on the sim card you are buying.  When I bought a data sim card in South Korea, no need to register the sim.  I just placed the sim in the pocket wifi & ok na.  When I wento Europe & Thailand, you have to register the sim first.  But in both cases, kung saan ako bumili ng sim, pinakiusapan ko na sila na mag register para di ko na gamitin ang phone ko.

We have toiletries/hygine kit readily available in a water proof pouch everything in it are for travel purpose small size for everything.
I use fashionable belt bag instead of shoulder bag para pag umuwi at may need hand carry [textspeak!] extra baggage ang hand carry ko.
I always have foldable water proof beach bag with me so this is my bag when we need to hang out sa beach or pool area.
I am nobody.

Nobody is PERFECT.

Therefore, I am PERFECT!.

if traveling kids with kids naman here are what we usually do.
1. Idoble na ang nappy, we use the traditional and pants, so if mabilisan at natutulog ang kids sa plane, just remove the inner nappy.

2. goodies / sweets / biscuits, i am guilty of bribing sweets, specially kapag ayaw mag buckle up sa plane, lollipop is my bestfriend.

3. bring stickers / papers / toys that is ok na maiwan, like mcdonalds toys.

^yes sis vanityfair, that's true, Perla is even recommended for people with allergies and skin asthma...

-another travel hack that I have learned, buy a separate pouch na ready to go pag may unexpected trips, this should be filled out with travel sized toiletries, yung mga nabibili sa Daiso na travel kits ganun...para isang bitbitan na lang talaga pag aalis na...

-same goes with undies, I have a separate pile ng undies that I specifically use for travel/out of towns, mostly black, nudes and grays..para mabilis ko maipack...

Ay may packing cubes din ako! Very helpful in organizing my clothes and toiletries. Pero hindi ko din alam na packing cubes pala ang tawag haha travel organizer bag ang alam ko  ;D

I also bring unused trashbags - pwede lagayan ng slippers and laundry.

I also bring portable bidet - very helpful. Nabili ko sa shopee.

I'm planning to buy Airbed na high quality. My friend suggested na when they travel with yaya, dun pwede matulog si yaya instead of requesting extra bed.

hi. what kind binili Mong portable bidet? thanks

1. Bring trash bag para sa maduming damit

6. Kung may extra towel iwrap mo yun sa basang damit talagang makakatulong sya makatuyo also use hair blower

7. Pag adik sa kape at hindi naman maarte much better mag baon ng sariling 3 in 1 coffee sachet.


^ this is me, especially sa 3in1 kape!  ;D

I always check Google Maps Streetview para may idea ako sa itsura ng bababaan/labas ng destination and paligid especially when we DIY tours.
 
For data abroad, bumibili na lang kami local SIM card then hotspot yung isang phone.

Download ahead ng mga mapapanood sa Netflix and YouTube so pwede parin manood while on airplane mode.

Sometimes I bring "dressy" jelly/rubber sandals like the ones from Grendha/Ipanema para pwede sa beach and okay lang din sa mga restaurants instead na regular flipflops.

Nagme-mental map din ako if yung mga dala ko bang damit eh pwede sa isa't isa kung ma-tripan ko mang i-mix it up. Kumbaga, most tops pwede sa most shorts/pants na dala ko (unfortunately I overpack most of the times).

I include travel size Omega painkiller (for my husband lol) sa medicine kit namin coz meron at meron palagi sumasakit.

edit to add: Kapag may mga nagkakayayaan friends/group gala, add na rin guest/s sa CebPac online account before mag book (especially during seat sale) para mabilis.

I love yung mga bago kong na-pick up dito especially portable bidet! Minsan chinecheck ko rin pictures ng bathroom ng accommodation namin kung may bidet eh haha!

- 2 powerbanks
- sachet shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, and small size body soaps (throw-away)
- laundry powder for washing socks, undies
- mix and match neutral colored  clothes

^^ badtrip yung bathroom na walang bidet. Haha

I use packing cubes. Even hub is pleasantly surprised how organised this is. Di pa nagwriwrinkled yung clothes unlike if u fold them konmari style.
I always wear or bring my Toms shoes. Very light and comfy especially sa mahabang lakaran.

I used to use those big ziplock bags from Daiso before I was converted to using packing cubes. One of my favorite packing cube is from Flight 001, which has two sides, one for clean clothes and the other for laundry. Ang saya kasi hindi sila naghahalo. My latest packing cubes are from Kishu. They're packing cubes that can be compressed. Locally made, and mura sya. Parang Php 450 per set of two. Malaki yung packing cube, so madami ka ring malalagay. Medyo weird lang ng shape kapag compressed na kasi bulky sa gitna tapos ang kitid sa gilid (or maybe I just need to redo my packing). We ordered via Instagram ata before, but I found it sa Shopee: https://shopee.ph/Travel-Compression-Packing-Cube-i.35593469.1901475187

I live mostly in the province na and would ride overnight buses to and from Manila. Natuto na ako to have a comfort kit na nakalagay sa ecobag (for easy access), and this system works for me, even for flights (especially for long haul). In my comfort kit:
- thick scarf/shawl (mainly if traveling by bus or traveling to colder climes)
- Uniqlo pocketable waterproof reversible parka
- handcream/lotion (because cold air can be very drying on the skin)
- waterbottle + electrolyte powder/tablets (so you remain hydrated yet never have the need to pee so often)
- black out eye mask (I usually don't get to sleep in buses, but since I got this, I've gotten much better at it na. I got mine from Wanderskye, but I've also seen similar designs at True Value)
- steam eye mask (useful when it gets too cold in the bus, or if you have a headache/migraine/eye strain)
- travel pillow (not inflatable and can be fastened around the neck or laid flat as a comfort pillow which is helpful kung di mo type ang pillows sa hotel)

My favorite find though, are Earplanes. They're basically hollow earplugs that eases pain in your ears when flying. I'm one of those kasi na hirap mag equalize and madalas super painful for my ears during take off and landing. Medyo mahalia sya (bought my original pair at the Sydney airport for $17), but sulit. It's recommended to be used only once or twice, but I've extended the life of mine by making sure to clean my ears before flying, and cleaning them thoroughly after use. You can buy five packs of these sa Amazon. I've seen similar ear plugs sa Japan Home (not Daiso), but mas malaki sya, so I didn't buy.

I actually have a post of my travel essentials here: https://justwandering.org/2019/preparation/whats-in-my-bag-10/

Dati lahat ng toiletries namin pinapack ko pa every time we have a trip. Now nakapack na toiletries namin. May toothbrush, toothpaste, disposable panties, shampoo and conditioner in sachets, mini soap, head to toe wash for my son, lotion, sunblock, cotton pads, cotton buds sa toiletry bag. So ilalagay ko na lang sya sa maleta or sa bag namin. It saves me a lot of time! Packing cubes helps din. Hindi na kailangan halukayin buong maleta to get our things. pag short trips, I bought a backpack na maraming pockets. May designated area yung medicines, wires and chargers, at kikay kit ko. Hindi na rin nagtatanong husband ko san nakalagay mga gamit kasi alam na nya. What else? Sa gamot din pala. May nakaseparate din ako na emergency kit for travel. It has 10ml paracetamol for my son, antihistamines, pain relievers, thermometer, band aids, and betadine.

Lastly, naglagay ako ng megabox sa trunk ng car na may extra clothes (pang alis and pang bahay) extra undies and extra slippers for emergency like magkayayaan magovernight bigla somewhere or hindi makauwi agad. We have pee bottle (from hospital) din inside the car for long drives.
My ♥ beats for my lil Chestnut!
