10 Worst Travel Gear People Purchase and do not Need

  1. Camel Pack Water Hydration Bag - How do you clean, water will destroy computers, and electronics, this is just an extra bag, a traveler can only manage two bags without a problem. These do work for bikers and treks of many days.

  2. Pac Safe Wire Mesh Security - Generally the first thing to be dumped on a Backpackers trip. I have been offered them three times for free, the person paid too much money and wants someone to benefit.

  3. Water Bottles - You will lose it, so may as well carry a bottle of purified water.

  4. Mattress Pad for Sleeping Bag - Hmm, if you need this, you should not be sleeping in a tent, the normal strategy is to make a bed of soft grass.

  5. Propane Cookers - You cannot buy the refills, you cannot take the fuel on planes, leave this at home.

  6. Extra Mosquito Repellent - The most dangerous item to have in your bag, and you want to carry extra.

  7. Water Purifier Pump with Filters - This is too much, too big, too difficult, and too far extreme for the average person on an average trip.

  3. Liat in Caribbean
  4. Ryanair.com
  5. Aeropostal
  6. Philippines Airlines
  7. Royal Nepal Airlines
  8. Air France
  9. Anything Congo


What's the cheapest way to cross the Atlantic?


it's a little relieving to know it doesn't get worse than Bali for tourist trap beach although I beg to differ. I thought Phuket-patong beach was much worse. if that place doesn't isolate you in your hotel I don't know what will. nonstop rapidfire sales pitches even in the low season


What airline is Maredi in Indonesia - or do you mean Merpati? By the way, they went bankrupt a few years ago.


Re: Maredi in Indonesia.

Why leave it on the list? There is no such thing as Maredi here. Plus the correct name is Biman Bangladesh Airlines not Bangladesh Air, Ryanair not Ryanair.com

Otherwise, you maintain an interesting website.


Good memory, I remember seeing the footprint on the wings in the paint, it was too funny, planes are normally very perfect. See the photo with a gym shoe print on the wing in the paint of Merpati Airliens. http://www.hobotraveler.com/bce_east-timor.php
