I’ve noticed women travelers have a hard time parting with their purses. I know, I was one of them. But after having one too many not-so-fun mugging moments, I’ve decided to have a good hard look through my purse to see: Is it really necessary?

I discovered that it’s not!

I understand it’s one thing when we go out at night, to a restaurant or a bar, the need for a few vanity objects such as lipstick and a mirror will fit better into a purse than a bra. What I’m talking about is, day trips and sightseeing.

What do you really need?

  • Money
  • Credit Cards
  • Camera
  • Sunglasses

Chances are you’ll be wearing comfortable clothes with pockets, so why not use them. The camera, which is usually in a small case, can fit a couple of little things as well. Just make sure that you have it close on you at all times.

So next time you go for a day tour, leave the bag at home. You’ll find it to be such a stress reliever!
