CARRY ON ESSENTIALS
AIR CORE PILLOW
I already travel with this pillow since 2007. This is the newer version of mine, a pillow that features an inflatable air core underneath a layer of premium synthetic fill. It offers the support and the comfort of a superior synthetic pillow! Everyone who knows me, knows I can’t travel without this pillow! Hostel pillows are not always the best so I would say a must have if you love sleeping with a pillow!
After 90 seconds of agitation, tap water in locations as Thailand, Egypt and wherever you are is safe to drink. Saving the world from yet another single-use plastic water bottle. It’s a bit expensive but it will eventually pay for itself! You can sterilize water for you and your fellow travelers at once
VAPUR WATER BOTTLE
This high-quality and versatile water bottle is super travel-friendly and something I recommend for every trip! I love that, when it’s empty, you can roll it up small enough to fit just about anywhere! This water bottle can be folded, rolled or flattened and stands when full and is Light weight! Again… Save the world with not buying all those plastic botlles! 🙂
SINGLE USE TOOTHBRUSH
For those times when you desperately want to freshen up and brush your teeth! If you just arrived after a 24 hour journey and you have to meet someone special, the Colgate Wisp Spearmint is exactly what you’ve been looking for! The Wisp is a single-use disposable mini-toothbrush that has a built-in freshening bead and doesn’t require rinsing afterward, just perfect!
SOFT SILICONE TRAVEL BOTTLES
This travel bottles are soft squeezable and made of silicone which is more resistant to heat and cold than plastic and less susceptible to breakage. They can be used for everything! I use them for shampoo and conditioner but you can even use the soft silicone travel bottles for food, like mayonaise for the Dutchies under us! 😉 The large opening makes it easy to fill and clean, and a ID panel on the collar for labeling helps you remember what’s inside. Absolutely Leak-Proof!
Where ever you are, things will happen around you, sometimes it’s nice to write it down. Hours in a plane? The perfect time to write in your journal! Met some new friends where you have to say goodbye to? Let them write something in your journal! I love this one because of its hard cover, perfect size and it closes with a magnet.
Not as other shitty sleeping masks. This one actually blocks all light and stays in place naturally. This sleeping mask is soft, light and is seriously really comfy!
RFID PASSPORT COVER
Always good to have your passport protected in a cover, it’s one of the most important things you carry with you! The RFID blocking feature prevents unauthorized access to personal information by effectively blocking RFID transmission. It’s always better to be extra safe than sorry! 🙂
TRAVEL ELECTRONIC GEAR
I can’t imagine my life without my MacBook! For performance, portability, easy use… When you’re used to a Mac, you never want to go back! The air is perfect for your travels because it is so light! Go for a Macbook Pro if you need more space. Maybe that’s why I also have 2 Harddrives! 😉 Anyway… This blog would not exist without my Macbook..
CRAVE POWER BANK
You never have to stop for an outlet again! Now you can charge your smartphone, tablet or GoPro with the Crave battery charger in no time. It is not only powerful, it fits in the palm of your hand, your pocket, or your purse. Small and lightweight. Each fully-charged Carve power bank can charge your smartphone from 0-100% battery power 4 times!
TRAVEL CORD ORGANIZER
Great organizer for all your electronics! I like it that it doesn’t have a hard shelled case, so you can kinda size it yourself. There are a two panels. One side to organise your wires via the elastic bands and the other side has a mesh zippered area, for for example your harddrive. There is a little pouch in the middle where you can store smaller stuff like your passport, yellow card, etc.
APPLE TRAVEL ADAPTER KIT
Because I’m an Apple lover I use this Apple travel adapter kit. I can use it for all my apple gadgets but especially for my Macbook I prefer to use the apple adapters above the Universal Travel Adapter because does do NOT convert electrical output current and voltage.
BOOM SWIMMER SPEAKER
The best speaker I ever bought! Lost him and bought him again! Best sound, waterproof, dirt proof, shockproof! It is waterproof down to 1m for 30 minutes. Rechargable battery last up to 8 hours at full volume and connects to smartphone or tablet with Bluetooth. The flexible tail offers variety of placement options.
UNIVERSAL TRAVEL ADAPTER
This adapter works in more than 150 countries including EU / AU/ UK / US / CN / JP / HK, it converts power outlet when traveling to other countries but this charger does NOT CONVERT electrical output current and voltage. That’s why I use the Apple World Adapters for my Macbook!
This case is designed for underwater use, swimmers, surfers and scuba divers! But it is not only protected from water, also from ice, dirt, sand, whatever! It’s perfect for your phone or some carry-on documents, cards, or even cash.
TRANSCEND HARD DRIVE
I have 2 harddrives. One in my big backpack and one in my small backpack. You can also back up pictures up online, I know…But you need good internet all the time and buying space cost also money. I prefer to save the best ones online and al my pictures save on my harddrives. When I’m home I also put them on a external extra harddrive. Just to be sure! My pictures are my most valuable possessions.
I have this shock proof harddrive, because you travel with it it’s nice that it has some extra protection.
TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY GEAR
GO PRO HERO 4 SILVER
What I love about this one is that it has a built-in touch display. Controlling the camera, framing shots and playing back content is ultra convenient! View, tap and swipe the screen. HERO4 Silver captures 1080p60 and 720p120 video with lifelike clarity, plus 12MP photos at a staggering 30 frames per second. I love adventures and I love to take this little camera with me on my adventures! I brought it road tripping, scuba diving, whitewater rafting, surfing, paragliding, and beyond.
GO PRO STICK
I mean, I’m kinda against selfiesticks but on a GoPro I think it is okay… 🙂 Especially when you want the whole boat, the whole car or all of your friends on it. Then, it’s kinda perfect! This one extends up to 1 meter (40 Inches) is compact, portable and Lightweight. Attaches directly to all GoPro HERO cameras.
I swear by the sony cybershot! There is so much choice these days in camera’s but I keep on turning back to just a small, easy to use camera. This one you can take everywhere with you! I travelled with a big ass camera before but really I wanna capture the moment! I don’t wanna switch lenses and adjust settings, then the moment is gone… The images are fantastic, especially for this size of the camera. I wont go into all the technical aspects as there are lots of other references available, click on the picture for revieuw on amazon. From a critical user perspective this camera delivers on all fronts. Sure you can get better quality if you are prepared to pay more and get a bigger camera.
SAN DISK 64GB – Camera
Read Up To 90MB/s/ Write Up To 95MB/s, Shockproof, X-ray proof and Waterproof! Perfect for your camera!
SANDISK 64GB – GoPro
SanDisk Extreme 64GB microSDXC UHS-I Card captures more fast action and record more Full HD or 4K Ultra HD video with your GoPro action camera. It is build tough for extreme durability under challenging environmental conditions. You really have to give your camera the speed it needs to capture action photos or shoot in continuous-burst mode.
A Go Pro is nice but the best pictures you make underwater are with a camera with underwater housing. On a Go Pro you have to buy the red filters. With a camera you can adjust the white balance every time when you change dept for the best colours!
I always carry extra batteries. There are always trips where you can’t charge for a couple of days, or you forgot to charge your battery or whatever. The worst thing that can happen if you finally arrived at for example the Machu Pichu and your battery is empty. #fail. This package includes one charger and 2 batteries with a higher capacity than the original battery so it last longer and records more wonderful moments.
OTHER TRAVEL GEAR
These Towels are a miracle!. As a traveller you do not have lots of space and these towels are so tiny, yet so potent!. The length is that of a normal beach towel so it’s not too short on your body, what is easy if your bathroom is shared. They come in all colours and the hand towel is an added bonus! Compact, quick dry, all you need!
Perfect to lock up your stuff in a hostel locker, or to lock your bag. I always use it for my daypack, in some countries it is just necessary. This lock is also TSA accepted, so no no fear of having locks cut open by the security at airports. Digits because keys you can loose and 4-digits to offer even more combinations. Longer time to crack it open then 3-digit locks. 😉
I always used my IPhone as a flashlight but since I have this Olight I can’t imagine I was using my phone… This is a shockingly powerful light especially because it’s so small! You can slip it in your pocket every single day to have when you need it. You can use it as a headlight and the magnetic base is perfect to stick it on whatever is there! Love this light!
I don’t always use it but I always carry it with me. There are always moments that you prefer to sleep in your own clean/ comfy sheet then some hostel beds. Also perfect to use for cold overnight sleeping busses or for hot destinations where they don’t even give you sheets. Even if it is hot, I like to sleep under something… This one is from high quality silk, it is soft against your skin and responds well to changing temperatures – it feels cool in the summer and is warm in the winter! Also super small packing size and light.
LUSH SHAMPOO BAR
You see more and more travellers with shampoo bars. Solid shampoo bars are the equivalent of three bottles of the liquid version, and can be carried in reusable tins rather than in single-use plastic bottles. Smaller and better for the environment! You should try it!
LUSH BAR TIN
This tin is designed to hold the shampoo bars that Lush makes. It looks good, it is sized appropriately, and the lid is tight. Perfect!
A luxury towel at a great price! 100% cotton, absorbent and compact, dries quickly and folds up very compact so perfect for travelling! You can use it as a scarf, blanket, sarong, wrap, picnic blanket, table cloth, at the pool, beach, spa, fitness, yoga, pilates, boat or yacht… Wherever you want! Gets softer the more you wash it! Perfect size: 180 * 100 cm (70 x 39 inches)
If anyone sees me packing my bag, they get jealous.The eagle creek packing cubes work as a portable closet in my backpack, helping me stay organised as well as unpack and repack in seconds. I have 5 half cubes. They are available in different sizes but I prefer the half ones. A MUST HAVE for organising your backpack!
Basic flipflops that come in lots of interesting colors. However I most of the time go for black since black goes with everything. I wear flipflops daily, just about every day of the year, and I have gone through several pairs of these Havaianas and continue to be happy with them. I do everything with them from climbing mountains to hiking through the desserts, they are my most comfy foot wear!
I have this one already since my first trip in 2007. I always take it with me on any adventure, I never worry about my gear when it is in this light, tough and very strong waterproof bag! 10 litre is in my opinion the perfect size, it’s able to store everything you need for the day and is not too heavy to hold you back! The extra long shoulder strap makes it easy to carry. A MUST HAVE! It comes with a phone case what is alone already $13! Good deal and it WILL last a life time!
In the past, when I wanted to go on a day-trip that required a backpack, I had to empty my carry-on and repack it again after. Now, I just pull out my foldable daypack and go! Also great for avoiding plastic bag use on the road! It’s foldable so you can easily toss it in the bottom of your big bag, needs no space..
This bag is pretty fantastic! Small but can hold all my toiletry’s! NOTE: I’m not really a girly, girl so some girls would probably only use this bag for make-up… It is made of high quality materials that will last. You can hang it, it’s super light weight, it’s waterproof (also a big plus!) and available in different colours.
I think this is a pretty cool gift! The functionality of a Leatherman tool with you everywhere. They designed multiple tools in each 17-4 stainless steel bracelet link, making usable tools like a bottle opener, screwdrivers and box wrenches available at a moment’s notice. Adjustable to accommodate any wrist size and fully customizable with the links you need most, the Leatherman Tread is as stylish as it is functional.
CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY
Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. It’s the best game I played overseas! To be honest, I’m not travelling with this, but a lot of people do! And… That are the people who make friends quick because it is a really fun game to play! I’m happy if someone has it! It is despicable and awkward and really easy to play. Each round, one player asks a question from a Black Card, and everyone else answers with their funniest White Card.
ANYWHERE TRAVEL GUIDE
A creative travel guide for anywhere, this handy deck includes 75 cards to inspire exploration. With a unique mix of concrete actions and whimsical prompts—from “Ask the next person you meet where his/her favourite street is. Go there” to “Write down what you like about this city on a small piece of paper. Leave it where someone else will find it later”—Anywhere encourages users to see things differently while discovering both new and familiar places.
PACK THIS PAD
Packing! Chaos! What to bring?! Forgot your toiletries again?! Next time only worry about getting on the airport! This organisational tool will help even the most forgetful to arrive and depart fully equipped!

WORLD MAP STICKER
I came across this World Map Decal Sticker for Apple MacBook and I would love, love to get one as a gift! So… I don’t have one yet! 😉 This one is for the Macbook Air 13.3 inch Model but they are availible for all models. Easy to clean, durable in use,Super-thin (less than 0.1 mm). Effective protection, be much better protecting against scratches. No leftover residue once the skin is removed and 100% waterproof and oil-proof.
