10 Items for your impromptu backpack

For frequent flyers or even for those who like to take impromptu weekend trips, a small backpack or a suitcase packed with a few doomsday-proof items are necessary so that you wont consume an entire day in just packing your belongings. 

So here's a list of 10 items which you should keep in your Travel bag at all times and add the other obvious pieces (clothes, shoes, laptop etc.) later.

1. Toiletry Pouch :  A small toiletry box containing your toothbrush, a small paste and other important items (as per your gender). This is just in case you have to stay at a hotel which doesn't provide any good toiletries or maybe you are stranded in a jungle camp!

2. Towel : A small towel for those emergency purposes which can double up as a napkin. You can never go wrong with these. They are useful no matter what!

3. Pair of slippers : You never know, when your heels might break or if you Forget to take those extra pair of flip-flops for your travelling activities. A pair of slippers should be kept for unforeseen circumstances to say the least.

4. Bag of undies : I normally forget to pack my undies. So a few pairs are enough to get through in the worst case.

5. Digi Cam : No travel, either business or leisure, is complete without snapshots. If you have a good Phone-cam, then skip this step!

6. Book/Kindle : I love reading and prefer to have a half read paperback book with me at all times when I travel. It can be one of those books which you have been meaning to read but always skip to read more interesting novels. A light read is sufficient for those back breaking travel transits or long overhauls.

7. Deflated Neck Cushion : I swear by this thing! Travelling , whether by plane or train or bus, a neck cushion comes in Handy anywhere. Its comfy for a good nights' sleep without crunching up your neck cells in the morning.

8. Eye Mask : I swear by this thing too. Travelling is hectic, with jet-lags and temporary sleep disorders ruining the travellers' health. An Eye mask is handy and a good companion when your fellow passengers don't turn off their lights or you get stranded at the airport and want a wink or two before the scheduled flight.

9. Some Candy bars/Protein bars : These always come in handy at the most unexpected times. You might be travelling to the most sophisticated destination ever, but you never know when hunger strikes. And these little tid-bits are sure to give you the necessary sugar boost till you get to that nearest Starbucks.

10. Spare cash : You won't forget your cash when leaving your place I am sure. But some spare cash in a pouch can be a good safety precaution to take as a traveller. And the cash can turn out to be "free money" after a few years, which you never knew existed!
