Though drop-waist elephant pants from Thailand paired with a billowy top from Bali makes for a super comfortable travel outfit - it's not exactly appropriate for every destination. Some styles are just better suited to hot, sticky days of washing elephants than they are for, say, a client meeting in London. Dresses, however, are the ultimate do-it-all piece. You can slip on a pair of sneakers and grab your backpack for a day of exploring then swap them out for heels and a red lip to be ready for drinks that evening. Add a blazer and the look is immediately professional, whereas a denim or leather jacket slung over your shoulders is a formula for instant cool. The only downside to packing dresses is many are riddled with wrinkles after having spent some time rolled up in your suitcase.

Now, more than ever, walking and hiking are exciting ways to explore the outdoors, whether you're traveling or staying close to home. And though making your way from point A to point B on foot takes much longer, many adventurers choose to see the beauty of the planet by hiking. There's the Inca Trail in Peru and the Camino De Santiago spanning three European countries, Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and the ambitious Appalachian and Pacific Crest Trails in the U.S. — every mountain offers a new view, a different challenge, and, hopefully, a renewed respect for Mother Nature.

Take a page from the trail books of these frequent hikers and bring along these outdoor essentials for the next time the mountains call your name.

When you’re headed out of town for a weekend, you may not give a second-thought to what you’ll pack until the night before takeoff. And even with a week-long vacation, you probably wouldn’t stress too much about throwing in an extra pair of shoes, just because. Related: The Best Personal Safety Alarms for Travel Emergencies But if you’re considering going on a weeks-, month-, or even a year-long trip around the world, being pickier about what to pack is essential. Especially if your travels have you scaling mountains in Peru while also dancing until dawn in Mykonos, mindful buys will extend the value of your experience and hopefully, save you money in the long-run, too. Alongside your usual packing list culprits, consider investing in these 15 items when you’re planning a lengthy excursion.
As one of the most accessible and beloved parts of the world, Europe is home to plenty of bucket list–worthy places. History will draw you to ancient cities like Rome, Athens, and Lisbon, while culinary feats on nearly every corner call from Paris and London. And we can't forget the rolling, robust lands of Ireland and Scotland. It could take a lifetime to fully immerse yourself in every destination. Related:The Top 15 Cities in Europe While these iconic stops are definitely worth your attention, there are others that might not have as much search traffic, but can give you a whole new perspective on a place and its people. These little-known wonders — most of which are not-so-far from larger metropolitan areas — will add depth and dimension to your getaway, offering a unique opportunity to see and experience something beyond the usual circuit. Below, seven underappreciated European gems you need to know about.

Short flights along the coastline or country-hopping through Europe are easy enough to prepare for, but when you’re tangoing through multiple time zones or spending more than six hours on a plane? It’s important to fill your personal item with the necessary goods to help keep you entertained, healthy, and (at least somewhat) zen. Related:The 19 Best Travel Journals to Bring on Your Next Adventure Every type of traveler requires something different to spend an extended period of time up in the air — snacks for some, technology hacks for others, and for most, a solid neck pillow or blanket are needed to lure the ever-elusive plane-seat sleep. So alongside a few of my personal recommendations, I asked six full-time travelers — some of whom have spent years circling the globe — to share what they pack to help them survive a long flight.
