One of the hardest parts of traveling is packing, especially if you’re the kind of person with overpacking tendencies. To make things a little easier, here are three multi-functional items you have to bring with you on your next trip.
A Fanny Pack
They may have been all the rage in the 90s, but fanny packs are back in action! And they’re an absolute must-have for travel. Not only are they trendy, but they’re incredibly convenient, allowing you to go hands-free and keep all of your valuables close to your body where you can keep an eye on them and avoid pickpockets.
There’s no more versatile article of clothing for travel than a shawl. Whether you throw it around you on a chilly airplane, use it as a picnic blanket, cover your shoulders when visiting a church or other holy place, or tie it up as a makeshift bag, you’re sure to find a hundred different uses for it.
Weatherproof, Comfortable Shoes
These days, functional shoes like Birkenstocks, Tevas, and Blundstones are super trendy, which is fantastic news. Not only will they look good as part of your outfit, but they’re incredibly adaptable and comfortable for long days of walking. Pack one pair of sandals and one pair of boots and you’ll be ready for any weather.
