They may seem somewhat out-of-fashion but trust me they’re something which you will miss a lot when you don’t have them. You will call wet wipes as divine gifts from the travel Gods when you use these for cleaning up scrapes and scratches, for mopping dust from your flip flops, for wiping the sweat from your face or freshening-up (very important when you can’t have a shower!).

Consider you are enjoying your leisure stroll over a hill and suddenly a branch tears of your backpack. In such times, duct tapes are unmatchable saviors. Imagine not having one of them and till you complete the journey there is no way you can buy another backpack!
