In a rush? Find our full gear list on Amazon.

All of the travel photography gear listed below fits into one camera bag. We’re all about budget travel which means that we have to lug our gear around while hiking, city trekking, riding public transportation, and squeezing into tiny airplanes. We rarely check luggage!

Additionally, all of the prices listed below are new. We almost never purchase new products. Not only is it cheaper, refurbished and reused products are better for the environment!


Generally Useful Travel Items

  • Snacks – We love Cliff Bars and Lara Bars as opposed to unhealthy airport food but we would love to start making our own to take with us in reusable bags – link to your favorite vegan protein bar recipes below!
  • Stain stick – For obvious reasons. I swear these things are magical.
  • Chapstick – I can’t go anywhere without it!
  • Collapsible Water Bottle – I’ve raved about these in other posts. They’re perfect for travel!
  • Dramamine – The ultimate nausea medicine!
