I prefer slow travel and really settling in to new places whenever I can. I’m a self-proclaimed minimalist and I don’t generally buy travel gear that isn’t multifunctional and also useful in everyday life. Cuyana Travel Wallet: I’m going to sound like a Cuyana advertisement, but hey, if you find a brand you love (and I love their ethics and philosophy too!) I love, love my Cuyana travel wallet. Another hack (that really applies to my life and travel) is that I stick to neutral colored, multi functional pieces.
