1.A towel is essential for successful galactic hitchhiking and just common sense. Always pack one.Whether you need it at the beach, on a picnic, or just to dry off, you never know when you might need it.Even though many hostels provide towels, you never know, and carrying a small towel won’t significantly increase your bag’s weight.

2.Buy a small backpack or suitcase If you buy a small backpack, I recommend something between 35 and 40 liters, you won’t be able to carry too much.If you pack light but have a lot of room in your bag, you’ll end up thinking, “Well, I guess I can take more,” which you’ll later regret. Humans naturally want to fill space.
