It's always a challenge to pack right things just before trip. Few frequent travellers maintain a travel packing list but sometimes one or other thing gets missed. I travel solo most of the times and hereby list down the travel essentials for a female solo traveller which goes with all kinds of trips. I carry only a backpack + Sling bag to avoid too many baggage, I call my backpack as Bagwati so below items gets packed into Bagwati for all solo trips of mine.
