My essential travel items

B. Chaplin
The list author says: "I've found these useful for traveling overseas (i.e., outside of the United States)."
Travel Smart All-in-One Adapter Plug
Travel Smart All-in-One Adapter Plug
"Compact little adaptor that acts as a surge protector. Unlike some other adaptors, this accepted both American and European-style plugs. NOT a voltage converter!! (Looks like this exact item may no longer be available; try a new search for it if you are interested.)"
Streamlight 73003 Nano Light Miniature Keychain LED Flashlight, Pink
Streamlight 73003 Nano Light Miniature Keychain LED Flashlight, Pink
"The picture doesn't do justice to how tiny and powerful this flashlight is. Great to have for when the lights flicker off in your hotel. Bring extras as gifts. (Since buying this, I've also discovered even tinier flashlights, basically the size of a large quarter, which I use as well.)"
LRI PWK Photon II LED Keychain Micro-Light, White Beam
LRI PWK Photon II LED Keychain Micro-Light, White Beam
"Tiny flashlight. Always handy to have."
Travelon Hand Soap Toiletry Sheets, 50-Count
Travelon Hand Soap Toiletry Sheets, 50-Count
"Travel soap, in dry form. I actually buy this at REI, but it's the same idea. Hand sanitizer only goes so far, sometimes you want to wash your hands, especially in skeevy public restrooms with empty soap dispensers. Goes without saying that I always travel with TP or tissues as well..."
Salux Nylon Japanese Beauty Skin Bath Wash Cloth/Towel - Blue
Salux Nylon Japanese Beauty Skin Bath Wash Cloth/Towel - Blue
"Fast-drying washcloth. It has a rough texture -- guess you either like it or you don't."
Starbucks VIA® French Roast Coffee
Starbucks VIA® French Roast Coffee
"Coffee. It's nice to have a stash. This is the best-tasting instant I've tried. I actually buy it directly at Starbucks."
European Travel Water Heater Kettle
European Travel Water Heater Kettle
"Use this with Starbucks instant coffee to make breakfast for yourself! Bring a travel mug if you want an American-sized cup of coffee, though, because the cups that are included are ridiculously tiny. The version I bought was 220 volt, which worked overseas; I just used the adaptor."
Victorinox Swiss Army Classic SD Pocket Knife
Victorinox Swiss Army Classic SD Pocket Knife
"Take a Swiss Army knife. Checked luggage, of course."
