The Best Travel Bag Packing Checklist – Holiday Packing List 2019

Going on a vacation? Nothing is more exciting than discovering new places and travelling to different countries. I bet, almost everyone loves travelling but, only few of them loves packing their travel bag. LOL

Some people may pack way too many things and some people regret packing less and forgetting important things back home. There are some things that you must keep in your travel bag before getting on that flight.

I prefer to carry 1 suitcase and 1 bag-pack wherever i travel. I find it very comfortable having a bag-pack. 

This ultimate list of travel essentials will help you to choose what things you need to pack in your travel bag. Let’s jump right into it.

1. Universal Plug Adapter

This is a must have item for your travel bag, some places might not have same plug as your house, you should always carry one. Whether it’s your phone or camera or other devices, if you have one of these adapters, you don’t have to worry about running out of battery. I always carry a universal plug adapter and power bank in my travel bag, comes in very handy.
