Aside from your travel documents and money what is your travel essentials when traveling outside the country?
In response to: Msg #195571
Depends on the type of travel. When I was doing solo travel and scuba diving, my biggest essentials (all on my carry-on) were my scuba diving notebooks, fins, minimal toiletries, weathering clothes, camera and netbook to write my blogs and upload/edit photos and Skype friends/family.
Now, with our daughter in our lives -- car seats, and all of her necessities trump any nice DSLR or diving gear. ;-)
Liquid hand sanitizer, cell phone and charger, camera with battery charger and extra batteries, a good book to read, something long sleeved and warm in case I get cold, tissues, cough drops, spray air freshener, comfy shoes and socks, and my traveling gnome...actually its a plastic shark I got in a tropical drink on St John and I've taken him on all my travels ever since...he was very out of place in Rome but not so much on Caye Caulker, Belize. He's such a ham for the camera!!!!

My memory's hopeless but my cameras have memory cards, so photographic kit takes up most of the room in my carry-on bag. A netbook doubles up as a place to write blogs, to communicate and to back-up all my photos. Books are too bulky, so audiobooks are read to me by the iPod residing in my shirt pocket. When travelling by overnight trains in India, a silk sleeping bag liner moves into my hand luggage (because you never know where the supplied bedlinen has been or who's been in it before you!)
Essentials - tickets/travel documents, passport, wallet,camera, iphone and house keys. But it's nice to have my kindle, ipod, tablet and chargers with me. oh and tissues and wet wipes cos some toilets can be rank!
Things that already mentioned by others, like camera, accessories, essential travel documents, mobile, laptop, memory cards & backup. However, apart from all these, a good travel partner is very important too! If you are going with someone for the first time. From my experience I would say it's good to be your own rather with someone who is completely different from you!
yes you are right. I also take just necessary things with myself for travelling. For example when I was in Barcelona for segway tour <snip>I took just sportsuit and my photocam. And documents sure (pasport, tickets and inssuarence). Money I always keep in my VisaMasterCard.

All of the above.
I also travel with a small travel pillow for the plane but it comes in handy in low end hotels or when camping.
I don't travel without iPod and head phones because I'm a kid magnet and it allows me to sleep.
I have a small mask to shade out the light.
Hand sanitizer is a must.
We travel with a small calculator to calculate money exchange.
In our backpack beside the travel documents and money: sarong, hand sanitizer, laptop + camera (to write the blogs ;-)), toilet paper, moscito repellent, tuthbrush - to mention the most basic things
That would also depend on the type of travel but the basics that I always bring for my travel are : traveldocs, money, camera, my phone, Powerbank, Gps tracking device or map if ever I'll plan to do backpacking.
