  1. You guys need to make that travel style video. As a dude, its hard to find ANY videos on youtube about what to wear.

  2. Sharing is Caring! Want to travel cheap, and especially pay less for your hotel/hostel? Use LockTrip on average it is 20% cheaper than for example booking. https://beta.locktrip.com/?refId=876

  3. That comment about bakshish…. are you buying sex?
    A) No one must buy it.
    B) Many sellers have been trafficked.

  4. Thoughts on no tech whatsoever, not even a phone for my multi month backpacking trip thru S America? I don't think I need one because this trip is going to be all about being present and no photos or videos or social media. Plus, most hostels have computers. I can keep in touch with people by writing down their numbers or social media handles. I wonder if it could present an issue with getting from the airport to hostel.

  5. BETTER EX-LAX SUGGESTION:
    TRY A STOOL SOFTENER LIKE DUKALAX. THESE KEEP YOUR POOPS SOFT AND FLOWY IN YOUR BODY. EW. THAT WAY IT ELIMINATES CONSTIPATION AND ALSO THICKENS UP DIARRHEA FOR A BETTER POOP SESH.
    PLUS IS NOTHING THAT MAKES YOU RUN TO THE TOILET. IT JUST MAKES UR REGULAR MOVEMENTS.

  6. For minimal a knidle and phone with a decent camera is a good idea like a s7 onwards. dont bother with a point and shoot camera as its a pain to have and is bulky unless your really into photos. A pasport holder is stupid and bulky gopro is really not needed and forget noise cancelling bulky headphones a set of skullcandy smokin buds 2 block alot of noise and are tiny and dont scream rob me plus beats are junk. a journal while nice is bulky compared to a phone app

  7. Great video! I actually do almost all of these already. Here are a few things I was surprised by: 100 dollar bills, cologne and pills. First, the Benjamins…

    have you ever had a problem with having a bank accepting the bill? In South America, I've had serious challenges with them. Maybe I've had bad luck, but the people/banks there don't have a way to test it, and there are apparently a lot of counterfeits.

    I was so shocked when I heard the word "cologne"! I always want to pack some, but I ultimately decide it's not worth the risk of having that expensive liquid confiscated or the bottle breaking. I'm also, too, lazy to use a dropper to put it into a smaller container. I L.U.V the idea of solid cologne! Very cool.

    For pills, I've been using HumanGear "GoTubb": http://www.humangear.com/gear/gotubb
    I love it, because it's a more packing friendly shape, and it's surprisingly secure, yet it's easy to open. Since I pack a variety of vitamins of liquid, powder, disolvable, etc types of pills, I put a piece of cotton and a PillowPak to absorb any of the moisture that might damage the pills. It's a silly and low cost item, but it's seriously been a great change for me. Definitely check it out. The Medium 5.3 cu in. size has been perfect for me. I recently put 18 days worth of a variety of medications and vitamins with plenty of room.

  8. you can only be a minimalist because you have the whole of society supporting you. All you really need is your wallet with money of course, and you won't need to pack anything. 🙂

  9. I totally understand the expensive products! You guys can also bring a sunglasses case to protect your glasses, and you may also use it to keep something like money or small accessory that you forgot to leave at home. very good storage not just for sunglasses but for more other things.

    try this one. it looks good and has good quality. https://amzn.to/2EhGZnW

  10. All these complaints about "how expensive" these items are were written in the back of coach in a middle seat… Calm down people.

  11. 3:35 – If your headphones are Bluetooth headphones, there will not be a slot for a cord so not sure what you are saying there ….

  12. What the heck are those eyeshades? LOL Also, how in the world do you hang a nalgene on the seat in front of you? Where is there something to hook a carribeaner to on a seat?

  13. Do you like to journal by pen as opposed to on a table tor laptop? I type so much faster than I write, lol.

  14. Guys, do you think I will be OK with this list if I am leaving on Monday for Colombia and doing 6 months all the way around South America and I will not be in Southern Argentina and other places that have opposite seasons as us until around May/June, so I am afraid that it will be super cold in the Andes, etc.

  15. Most of you enjoy these great videos for free. Why shouldn’t they make a little bit of money from product placement?

  16. A minimalist/3-1-1 "hack" is to make toothpaste dots. Put down a pea-sized dab of toothpaste and let it dry. After that you can put them in a snack sized ziplock and it will not count as a liquid. When you're ready, wet your brush wet the dot, put it on your brush get down to business.

    If you like painting/sketching, take a few pieces of good paper, cut them in half, fold them again depending on the size you want, then either stitch or staple them together with a piece of Manila folder as a cover. The flat style of toothbrush travel container will hold six pencils, or grab a water brush and either a travel size watercolor palette or make one using tubed watercolor paint. Take a piece of that good paper, fold it like a greeting card then on the inside put dots of paint spaced out (just like the toothpaste) and let it dry. When It's completely dry put it inside the book you made and you're off.

  17. Vitamin B1 helps with mosquitoes and watch out with vitamin b6, if you got to much voor a long time you could get problems with you body.

  18. "Girls, we won't mention make-up because it's not 100% necessary, sorry bout that" but absolutely no mention of women's toiletries that ARE 100% necessary.

  19. bringing condoms and being in a relationship is not a good idea lmfao. I'd rather let those people figure it out themselves than get in trouble with my girl

  20. What is the name of the backgound music that starts at 7:02? They always use it on the food porn subcription on snapchat!

  21. I love that there is no fragile masculinity in this video! They know they need lip balm and they’re not afraid to say so. The way guys should be!

  22. so you cover boys and girls, what about the other 500 genders? i represent the attack helicopters, but there are many other genders out there

  23. So I went to India 3 years back and we went in the nice weather when it was 80°-90° daily and so where I live it was 14° and snowy since we went In February but anywho we didn't bring a jacket because psh who needs em in that weather well we didn't think until when we were flying back home and we saw snow on the ground and it was -14° yeah so even if you aren't going somewhere that needs it bring it for an occasion like this

  24. For the vitamin pills do you need to inform the airline about it before the flight? Or just bring it and tell them its vitamin?
    Nice video guys!

  25. I got a Charles Schwab Bank checking/investment account that lets me withdraw from any ATM without fees. When you live abroad it is a life saver and also a money saver.

  26. Starting off by discussing how condoms are essential for a traveler? With strange partners? Yeah great way to exhibit American (im)morality. And yeah.. that's your priority when traveling? A couple Jerks

  27. According to the FAA report, over 80 percent of travelers, travel with some sort of laptop or tablet. Checkout Instagram.com/osterempress for the revolutionary aluminum carry-on bag

  28. So many salty ppl. It is not ”on a budget” video. If you have a hobby you spend alot of time with its resonable to buy some expensive and good stuff.

  29. Hey guys!
    We are all so excited for the summer. If you started to get your summer essentials, Hencely beach towels will be your saviour. They are lightweight,quickdrying and long lasting. So just a one is fairly enough.
    Check us out at https://hencely.com/ if you are interested!
    Hope to see you guys there! <3

  30. You mention Google Maps but if you’re travelling in a country whose language you don’t speak fluently, Google Translate is a godsend. You can download language packs to use offline and call it up anytime for quick translations. I always like Duolingoing a language for a few weeks or months before departure too, but obviously that’s a lot more work and only gets you so far.

  31. More so than specific brands, the most general thing about clothing is just that cotton kind of sucks while travelling. Polyester mixes and wool dry in a fraction of the time, which matters if you get caught in the rain, land in a puddle, or need to dry the clothes after washing them in a bathtub, as ya do.

  32. Nice video guys. Traveling is awesome! We have been rving for nine years now. Recently downsized to a 21' Roadtrek van so now life is even smaller. LOL Always learn something new. Thanks for sharing. Happy travels 😉

  33. Yes….this video is amazing! I am going to watch this video each time I pack for international travel from now on!! #travelpacking

  34. Instead of buying travel size toiletry kits buy reusable 100 ml bottle kits, waaaaay better for the environment and your wallet. Also, if the content is solid, carry the full size version (the deodorant for example). Stay away from unnecessary plastic when possible!

  35. A water proof shoes like Salomon Men's Xa Pro 3D GTX a good. Or should you go with other shoes that aren't Water proof.

  36. You guys are great but Mnimalists? Even in the winter I pack less bulk. And alot of those fancy things can be replaced with less bulky stuff like plain old ziplock bags, and items from the dollar store or the thrift store.

  37. 1. SeaToSummit XL UltraLight FastDry Travel Towel. It works as a neck warmer.

    2. Mini Soap Bars

    3. Universal Power Charger and Cables

    4. A batik sarong (connected and sewn)… it is multipurpose….use it for anything.

    5. Windproof UV Jacket

    6. Good quality U shaped inflatable neck pillow

  38. For the multi plug its also verry important to know, that in some countrys there are different currents (in us about 110v, in Europe 230v) and not all products will work with it or even get broken when u try it!

  39. the aspect of minimalism that i enjoy is purchasing (sometimes) expensive items that LAST a year or more!!!!!
