It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen. – Coach John Wooden
I feel that after more than 1,400 days of extended travel and living abroad in more than 19 different countries while experiencing almost every type of environmental climate you can image all while only limiting my material possession to fit within two backpacks, there has been a number of lessons I've learned–particularly quality items that you will want, if not need for long-term travel. This is a small comprehensive list of items that I've deemed to be valuable assets primarily for long-term travel, however, some of these suggestions can also be great for general travel whether that be long weekends or slightly longer trips.
