Travel Tips: What’s in my Backpack

I guess normally this kind of post would be what isn’t in my suitcase; before every trip I pack up the majority of my belongings including clothes I never wear and things I never touch. The kind of things you never throw away because, well, you never know! It might come in useful… I mean why wouldn’t I bring a glass photo frame that was clearly going to smash in my suitcase… Yes. That did actually happen…
