    So the adapter for your electronic equipment you mentioned England? Guys it's not England ok it's Britian there are 4 nations make up the Britian mentioning 1 of them is disrespecting the other 3. It's not difficult there is a world map behind you I'm sure you research what you vlog about try it on countries.

    I dig you guys. Hey"minimalist" simply shouldn't entertain full-size noise cancelling headphones as an *essential* and certainly not anything that is Bluetooth. The fewer cords, batteries and chargers that are in you pack, the better you are doing. Cheap earplugs do the job, or better yet a pair of IEM (in-ear-monitor) style headphones - they're tiny and double as earplugs and headphones.
    Consolidate. Minimize. Simplify. Lighten.
    Try to make sure all your electronics use the same plug-type for charging so you only have one or two cables. If you can't, there are tons of adapters (tiny ones with small built in lanyard for attaching the adapter to the cable itself whether in use or not) for switching between USB types "mini", "micro", "type C" etc. Way better than have a nest of different USB cables. Just make sure you try them all at home and make sure everything works in every combination.
    Finally - this was huge for me - A tip for guys AND gals on shaving. Try shaving *oil*. I personally get better shaves using oil not soaps or creams and they pack so small and last many times longer than a bottle of anything else. I tried a tiny bottle of Somersets on the road years ago and never went back, even when I'm home. Try it at home and see if it works you--- a killer brand that's cheap is American Crew Ultra-Glide... the bottle is tiny and any of these will last you anywhere from 3months to a year depending on you beard. This is not an exaggeration.
    And... I'm done rambling on your channel. Cheers.

    I have very mixed feelings about this video and the advice it gives. The whole "credit card and electronics" bit is quite useless when you are an on-the-rough traveller or from a country that does not have a strong credit card culture. I reckon they target more of an upscale audience. Toiletries belong in a see-through pouch especially if you are travelling carry-on... Not sure I'd follow any of those advice since I'm already a well-seasoned traveller with zero need for fanciness.

    Guys - i was surprised to hear you suggest sweatshirts, jeans - things made of cotton. I'm planning a trip for the back 1/2 of 2018 and everything I am reading says NO or at least MINIMAL cotton clothing bc it's heavy when wet, takes forever to dry, etc. And for hiking it's suggested to not have cotton socks too. Thoughts?

    What brand is the power converter. Looked in the description and it’s not there.

  • Amanda Radov
    Amanda Radov 15 дней назад

    I would love a video that touches on all the different types of power adaptors. The really small ones do not seem to have the adaptor for countries like Argentina. Also, cell phone specifics. How to switch to local SIM card, vs paying International fees and how this differs country to country and provider to provider.

    Great info! For women, I'd like to suggest a dark, light-weight, elastic-waist maxi skirt; a long-sleeve lightweight dark sweater and a dark pashmina that doubles as a head scarf. They're ALWAYS in my day pack when I'm wearing shorts and a tank top and are handy when I want to tour a conservative church, temple or mosque. On the days I'm wearing sandals, I also throw a pair of thin black socks into my backpack.

    Do you recommend a voltage converter, adapter converter, or both in one? Both in one is definitely more costly, wondering if both in one is needed. I'd like to be ready for several years of backpacking around the world, sleeping in my tent often as opposed to staying in hostels and such.

It might help many to prepare a close up budget. Food Vlog as well pls. Vegetarians! we are a lot. Keep the good work. Thanks.

    Prayers for the trip and sharing this with your friends would be super great too! If not, that's totally fine as well. If you're interested in travel blogs though, I will be writing one while I'm there, so message me if you would like the link for that once it goes live!
    Thank you! ♥

    Hey guys I have created A Travelers Browser app - It has everything a traveler needs - Here's the link to the app: : Its name is MUSAPHIR - मुसाफिर - I created this app as i wanted a one in all app for travelers . Now Let me tell youll about me - Im Ashutosh Khale and I live in India and Im a student - My travel diaries arent huge and wide but I have a few tours upcoming around my country where i travel alone to few amazing FIFA U17 World cup(Im a Football Fanatic) Locations and attend the matches and catch upon the culture of the city and so on - I created this app free and easy and was hoping to get some money through donations - so that i could buy a simple GoPro 5 -
    The amazon link -( to vlog my travel -
    Features about my app -
    1) You dont need to download multiple travel apps while your traveling- All you need is one travelers app.
    2)Musaphir is designed for almost all types travelers but has a focus on cheap and easy accessible travel websites.
    3)Musaphir currently has no apps - For better user experience
    4)Musaphir has one minute problem - Its not there on Google Play Store as that costs money - and expensive here in India -
    5)Musaphir has daily news , Temperature , Food , Travel , Airfares , Air bookings, Travel insurance , Bus Travel , Boat Travel , Train Travel , Tickets , Hostels , Meetups , Car Rentals , Villas , road trips ,Travelers health , Responsibility, - and other websites and google search engine so that you have everything at one place - YOU SAY IT - EVERYTHING at a PLACE -
    I created this app so that I could provide it for free to travelers around the world and it could be useful to every traveler - I also expected to earn money through ads to buy a GoPro 5 - But as a user myself I believe in ad free content and apps - so therefore I would love to accept donation of a minimum 1$ atleast if possible for you user - In an attempt to buy a GoPro on - the exact price is 476.296 dollars or 30498 rupees - I hope to buy the camera before the WC and travels -
    Here are my Bank Details for Donation -
    Account No : 916010077504138
    IFSC code : UTIB0000186
    Name : Ashutosh Khale

    I love traveling light so I usually pack as little as I can in a small backpack. But sometimes they stop me at the airport and once I was almost denied entry into Canada when taking a bus from Seattle. They said I was suspicious because I didn't have a lot of luggage. WTF! Why would I want to lug around so much shit. I really get annoyed when I get stopped. Anyone else experience this??

    2. The Nomadix towel is LIFE. It's not a "minimalist" pack towel, but it's better than going to a tropical place, staying in hostel, and not having a beach or hiking/river towel.
