Let’s get straight to it.

  1. Good Hair Clippers. Ideally a wireless rechargeable set. If you are traveling for extended periods, you may be hard pressed to find a barber you trust with your hair. Especially if you are in Asia or Europe. At least you will be able to keep yourself lined up and presentable.
  2. Moisturizer. You can find lotions and skin care products everywhere but maybe not the brands you prefer. Don’t overlook this.
  3. Running Shoes/Trainers. Walking new cities is a great way to explore and get exercise. You don’t want to be in leather dress shoes all day.
  4. Resistance Bands. These are excellent for home workouts. They’re light, easy to pack and you can do a variety of exercises with them.
  5. A Crisp White Dress Shirt. This is the ultimate garment. With jeans you look casual but well dressed enough to go out; with slacks and dress shoes you’re ready for anything. Plus the contrast of dark skin, white shirt is a certified win.
  6. Dopp Kit. Keep this filled with the standards: Nail clippers, tweezers, condoms, bug repellant, and basic first aid(bandages, ibuprofen, etc).
  7. Peppermint Essential Oil. This is a very useful item. Rub a few drops on your fingertips then massage your temples to relieve headaches. Mix 8-10 drops with water in a shot glass for a mouthwash. You can also blend with lotions or other oils to make a muscle relief cream. Don’t sleep on this one.
  8. Business Cards. Yes people are more casual and give out their social media info in conversation. Business cards are still a smooth way to make a great impression. Cards give someone your preferred way of contact. Your other info remains private.
