5 Favorite Travel Items by 5 Travelers

What did 5 different travelers say when asked,  "What is your favorite item you always travel with?" These are items that nomadic girls are most thankful for having with them when they travel. What do you travel with? Jennifer Lachs One of my most treasured items is my planner which I always take with me.
