Pack That: The Packing Must-Haves

Welcome to our Pack That series on WalkAbout365! We love traveling, but sometimes it’s hard to know what to bring on your adventures. Matt and I have made many a packing blunder during our trips, but we’ve also found some packing gold mines! Whether you’re going camping, to the beach, or into the jungle – let us help you get everything you...

Unigear Dry Bag Review

Dry bags are a great idea for travelling! They can get wet, even float in water if dropped in, and all your possessions inside will stay dry! Great for sailing, boating, or any water activity! This Unigear dry bag folds flat when empty, and comes with a strap to carry over your shoulder. It also came with a waterproof phone case with neck strap! Photo Credit: Amazon...

Silicone Travel Containers Review

These are the greatest travel purchase I’ve made in a while! Reusable, eco-friendly, and leak proof! Simply fill them up with whatever bathroom needs you have, and pack them! I know that they are good for USA and European airline requirements on liquid amounts. It’s even been easy to clean them out when I wanted to change liquids! Now, I never travel without them...

Turkish Towel Review

I wanted to bring my own towel with me on our trip for showers, beaches, and other water activities. Some places we were travelling to wouldn’t provide towels, and some hostel towels are not the best. Turkish towels are light-weight, pack small and dry pretty quickly. While they may not be as good as drying as a normal terrycloth towel, I was happy to have it on our...

A Sarong That is So-Right! Review

I bought a sarong during our trip in Thailand. And now, I don’t go anywhere without it! It’s a bathing suit cover up, skirt/shall for churches, picnic blanket, pillow for a long bus ride – anything and everything! There is no brand name on the one that I bought, but any sarong will do. Find one that is soft, packs small and can match with various outfits – you’ll be...

Vera Bradley Toiletry Kit Review

A toiletry bag always seemed like a luxury item for me. I was fine using a large ziplock or plastic bag. But with my push to be more eco-friendly, I switched to a cloth toiletry bag. The one I got has 4 compartments, 2 with clear windows. It is really great for keeping my items organized, or when I need to give my husband specific directions on where to find...

Female Packing List for Around-the-World adventure

While planning for our trip, I used a lot of blogs and pinterest to help me decide what to pack. I mustered up a few things from my wardrobe and some things I purchased for the trip specifically. In the spirit of helping fellow travelers, I’m going to post my packing list here. It is be no means perfect, but hopefully it can help others who wish to travel lightly...

Laundry Gear Review

Laundry when travelling can be such a pain. This clothesline was really great to have for whatever adventure you’re on. We were able to use this for drying bathing suits when we were car-travelling, laundry or soggy socks after a wet hike. The suction cups work well on most surfaces, but the Velcro straps are also helpful! Now it comes with clips as well, and a built...

Lifeproof FRE Waterproof Phone Case Review

This case was an absolute lifesaver! I bought a new iphone just before taking our year long trip, and needed to make sure I protected it. This case is shockproof, waterproof and responds well with the touch capabilities. I can say that I tested this case to the fullest! It had been dropped more times than I can count, used during rain storms, and even went Zorbing...

Backpack Rain Cover Review

When I purchased my travel backpack, it did not come with a built-in rain cover (which is pretty common with travel backpacks now). When it rains, and all your possessions are in your backpack, you’ll be thankful to have one! This one packs down very small to save space, and has an adjustable elastic that fits over the biggest, bulging bags! The brand I used was...
