Travel Gear: My Backpack, Electronics, Photo & Clothing

People often ask me about what travel gear I carry. As an extremely practical person, travel gear does play an important role in my life.

Nowadays, most of the stuff I carry along has been thoroughly chosen over the years in order to suit my travel style. My main worry is to travel light.

Curiosities

  • I only travel with carry-on baggage (the one taken inside the airplane).
  • I never carry more than 7kg / 15 lbs.
  • I never carry the same things. I often adapt to the place and weather conditions.
  • I only wear clothes or shoes made with tough and durable materials.
  • The gear I carry may not work for everyone since it’s adapted to my own personal experience. Nevertheless, maybe you can get some interesting ideas.
  • During some travels, I do not carry my computer.

Why I have a Samsung S9 PLus?

I love the camera quality of the S9. Supposedly it has the best cell phone camera on the market. Many of my recent blog posts were actually fully made with pics taken with this phone.

Why I had a Samsung S7?

My backpack CASE LOGIC® finally gave up after many years on the road. I’m now testing GOBAG and MINAAL awesome backpacks.

NOTE: These backpacks were sent by the companies GOBAG® and MINAAL® on sponsor mode. I’m “test-driving” them. Soon, I will have a review article with a personal comment on both bags. Check out for updates on my Facebook page!
