Travel Gear

As a traveller and travel blogger who is always on the go, it is important that I have a ready and packed suitcase. So want to know what is in my suitcase? Check out some of the things I always carry on me even if it is a short trip. Clicking on the images will take you to the respective product pages.

Travel Photography and Accessories

I am a budding photographer and I am still learning the tricks of the trade. But most of the photos on this site have been taken using this gear.

I know many people are lazy to carry DSLR’s these days because they are bulky and heavy to carry. But I still love to travel with my Nikon and on most trips, I carry it.

DSLR – Nikon D5300

I usually travel with my kit lens since I am lazy. I sometimes carry my bigger lens as well.

I don’t travel anywhere without my Iphone 8 plus and it has been a trusted companion for the past 1.5 years ever since I bought it.

I also carry an adapter to automatically transfer my photos from my camera to my iPhone.

I just bought this and I am hoping to carry this on all my future trips.

Laptop and Accessories

I use a Macbook Air. For someone who is prone to accidents and who has actually dropped her Iphone in water, poured coffee on her laptop, I believe insurance is the only way out.

I don’t travel anywhere without my MAC Book Air. As a part-time nomad, I work on the go from around the world.

I carry multiple SD cards when I am traveling including this 128 GB, 64 GB and few 32 GBs as well.

After hearing horror stories of how friends around the world have lost all their photos, I ended up carrying multiple hard drives. I back up once a week to these hard drives and in addition, also back up to an online drive once a month.

I don’t usually carry a tab for my long trips. But when I am going on a short trip, I usually carry my iPad with me.

Luggage, Handbags and Sunglasses

My luggage depends on the duration of the trip. I prefer hard case suitcases to backpacks due to the camera gear I often end up carrying. I also have many handbags and I alternate between my various trips.

I used to have at least a dozen handbags. But now I stick to only two and I frequently alternate between the two. I usually end up carrying my Michel Kors since I don’t have to carry an extra bag for my laptop then.

I am prone to migraines and hence, I never travel without a pair of shades.

I sometimes carry only my backpack when I am going to the Himalayas or on short trips. This also doubles up as my second bag when I am on the road for the long term.

I always carry packing cubes to sort my clothes and accessories.

Toiletries

I am very particular when it comes to my toiletries and I use only some of the best products. I am a MAC aficionado.

I have a cute hanging toiletries bag that I bought from Amazon and I carry it almost everywhere. It has multiple compartments and it helps me segregate everything in my bag.

I generally carry all items in smaller TSA approved bottles. So this allows me to carry my lotions and creams in smaller amounts.

Silicone Bottles for creams

I always carry sunscreen with me since I am an Indian and I tan usually in 10 seconds.

I love everything in MAC cosmetics and you can find several pieces of the same in my toiletries bag.

I use a range of moisturisers, both for my face as well as my body to protect from dry skin and other skin problems that may arise due to being on the road so much. I love the Bath & Bodyworks set, especially the Midnight Pomegranate one which includes a shower gel, body lotion and mist.
