There is no better way to become a more well-rounded person than by getting off the couch and visiting a great mountain by hiking or going fishing. Traveling outdoors is the only way to experience all of the beautiful cultures, attractions and natural sights throughout the world. Whether you are going camping or just taking a short hike, it is always nice to some comforting items to make your travels more enjoyable. These are the six pocket-size travel luxuries that you must have the next time you go outdoors and explore.

Noise Cancelling Earbuds
Outdoor travel may be filled with a lot of exciting adventures, but there is also going to be some downtime on your trip. There is no better way to make the most of this downtime than by having a pair of noise cancelling ear buds in your pocket at all times. These earbuds will allow you to watch a great movie or listen to some of your favorite songs. You will also not have to worry about being disturbed if you are in a noisy area of the woods at night when you are trying to fall asleep.

Sleep Mask
One of the best ways to get the most out of your trip is by getting a lot of sleep every night. It can be hard to continue to explore a new location if you are completely exhausted. Since sleeping in a new environment can be extremely difficult for some people, you will want to carry a sleep mask every time you travel. You may not think it will help much, but a sleep mask is crucial to feeling refreshed every morning while outdoors. In addition to blocking out of all of the outside light, sleep masks will also help reduce swelling and relieve any sinus pressure.

Carry On Cocktail Kit
It may not be easy or convenient to carry a full bar set while traveling, but that does not have to stop you from enjoying a few of your favorite drinks. The carry on cocktail kit contains everything you need to enjoy a delicious drink no matter where you are at. The special tin is small enough to fit in your pocket, and it only requires you to add a few ounces of the proper liquor to get a premium cocktail. An old fashioned, Moscow mule, hot toddy and margarita are a few of the excellent cocktails that you can have ready in your pocket during your next adventure.

Anyone that enjoys using an e-cigarette knows that they are a great luxury while traveling. Nobody wants to go several days without enjoying their favorite relaxing hobby just because they are not home. Luckily, you can have your e-cigarette wherever you go because they are small enough to fit in your back pocket. If you are going to be gone for more than a few days, then you need to make sure you have some replacement coils in your bag.

Disposable Travel Toothbrush
A clean mouth is essential for having a healthy body, so you do not want to ignore your teeth just because you are busy rock climbing. Since you may be away from your personal belongings for most of the day, carrying a disposable travel toothbrush is highly recommended. A disposable travel toothbrush can easily fit in your pocket, and it can be used to provide freshness and properly clean your teeth at any time. Once you are finished brushing, you just throw the tiny toothbrush in your personal trash bag, grab another one before you leave the next morning and you are ready for another great day of traveling.

Pocket Travel Journal
A travel itinerary is essential to creating a smooth travel experience. Since you can’t rely on finding an internet connection or having your smartphone constantly charged in the outdoors, it is best to have a physical itinerary in your pocket. This itinerary should be the first entry in your pocket travel journal. You can then use the rest of the journal to write about your experiences at every destination.
