Hey everyone!

Just wondering if you guys have any must-have items you take with you on your travels. For me, it's Dr Bronner's soap. I put it in a ziplock bag and toss it in my backpack. I also use L'Oreal Silky Sheen sunscreen; it feels so nice and lasts awhile. I also liked the shampoo bars from Lush (Karma Komba was my scent), which I took with me on a 3 1/2 month trip backpacking Southeast Asia. Lasted the whole time!

I'm a part of four women from Toronto who do a lot of budget travel, we're called MISSADVENTURES. We're on Instagram http://www.instagram.com/missadventuresca and we just started a podcast; you can look us up on iTunes :)

Would love to hear from other women so we can check out the products you guys recommend.

Haha, I guess that's a given for all the Instagramming that needs to be done. Any products?

Minis of everything! Hair care, makeup, skin care. They are so handy for traveling. :)

I've never travelled anywhere far. The most travelling I've ever done was take a bus to the next city to visit friends. But I must always have my Jack Black lip balm, L'Occitane hand cream, facial and sanitizing wipes, and a mini first-aid pack (usually just bandages).

Just checked out your Instagram and Website, looks great and so much fun :)

Oh yeah! We are huge fans of baby wipes/facial wipes. They're the greatest. We used them all "showers" when we climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro last year.

Thanks for checking us out. Follow us on Insta & let us know you're from here. We'll follow back :)

I think with budget traveling must have items are really just boiled down to necessities.. a camera, waterproof backpack, underwear..go enjoy the world.

I Always bring a cell phone, extra clothes, bobby pins(can be used for lots of things, holding papers, putting your hair up, hotel room cards,cash ect) and before going on the trip look up cheap hotel deals in the area your going to, sometimes you can get a really good deal if you stay 2 days or more, or you can even get a great deal for one night and if theres amusement parks, museums or historic places that are a great travel hits for entertain they will include it in with your hotels! So you save a ton and can still have fun :) traveling with your own car, always bring extra tools, blankets, and loads of water!

is this shampoo bar for washing your hair? Would save a lot of grief when travelling. I buy when I get there most of the time now.
