I’ve been traveling for most of my life. I’ve been all over this beautiful planet of ours from the beautiful beaches of Sw Florida that I call home to the Roof of Africa, also known as Kilimanjaro. I have had plenty of opportunities to try out different items designed for travel throughout my adventures some have excelled and others had failed miserably. One thing that is always a factor when globe trotting is the weight of the items you carry. From just being too heavy to getting charged extra money for the weight by airlines, there are many reasons to seek out the best lightweight travel items. Here are three that I think would be a great addition to any travelers bag.

Knowing that you have clean drinking water no matter where you are is must for me when I’m traveling, since I have a tendency to end up off the beaten path. Most of the  time when I’m traveling within the states I limit myself to just a carry on, so space and weight are at  a premium.  All the reason for the sleek and lightweight toothbrush and shaver. They can be charged just about anywhere and don’t take much space at all while delivering the quality performance we have all gotten used to.
