There are some essentials that all travelers should consider packing on their next trip.  Here are The Traveling Professor's recommendations of things every traveler should have on their next overseas tour:

eBags MotherLode Suitcase:  We have it and lots of our travelers have it too.  Lightweight, expandable, smartly designed. It fits in the overhead compartment of nearly every plane.  We've tested a lot of suitcases and we like this one the best. 

Eddie Bauer 30L Adventurer Backpack:  This one comes in especially useful on my small group tours to Iceland and my small group tours to Machu Picchu.   Lightweight and durable and built for convenience, this pack has gone all over the place with me. I very much like Eddie Bauer's guarantee on this back pack.  They provide a lifetime guarantee and will replace the back pack if there are any issues with it.  I can verify that Eddie Bauer will stand behind their products.

Mesh Day Pack:  Ultra light and easy to carry around during city tours, this is the pack to use.  It breezes right through the security scanner at museums. 

Noise Cancelling Headphones:  Let's face it, those little earplugs they give you on the airplane are useless.  Get yourself a nice set of noise-cancelling headphones where you can actually hear the movie on the plane.

Skechers Shoes:  They are inexpensive, light and comfortable.  Great for city walking. 

Merrell Shoes:  When not walking in the city I like my Merrell shoes for walking on muddy, rocky, and grassy surfaces.  I have used them in Peru, Iceland, Ireland, Scotland and on our small group tours to the Normandy Invasion Beaches.  By the way, on every small group tour I take two pairs of shoes, my Merrells and my Skechers. 

Child Safety Scissor:  You will never know how many uses this has on a trip until you have one. It breezes right through security scanners with no problem.  I use it to open plastic bags and cut off baggage tags.  Use them for light personal grooming, cutting tape, trimming hanging threads from clothes.  They really come in handy.

Universal Electrical Adapter with USB Ports:  You can't leave home without one of these to keep all your devices charged up.
