      I don’t have any wish list for travelling honestly since I’m not really into it. I enjoy sitting at home and doing something productive. Haha… Nevertheless, even though I’m not a kind of a traveler man, I enjoy going somewhere unique and beautiful. (thanks to my opposite personality). My last trip was going to Pari Island last year (yeah, it was a very long time ago) with my classmates. Besides enjoying the beauty and the peace in Pari Island, me and my classmates were enjoying the togetherness between us. That was a memorable trip, and a farewell too at once.

1. Milano Stazione Centrale Ferrovie – Milan Train Station   2. Milan Duomo Twilight, Italy   3. Italy St Peters Basilica   4. Descending The Trail Into Vernazza From Monterosso, Cinque Terre   5. Leaning Tower Of Pisa   6. Sandolo Da Barcariol   7. Naviglio Grande, Milano   8. Sunset Over Grand Canal, Venice,   9. Rialto Bridge

      Going back to the holiday thing, I certainly have a dream country to visit. In addition, I dream to build my future living house in this country. From a line of beautiful places listed in my mind, my heart fall in Italy, a beautiful country where its classic buildings and the culture interests me so much. Before moving permanently to Italy (I really wish!), how about talking about travelling to Italy and do some researches about fabulous places there? I have never been going there, so I prepare what to bring (besides bring the clothes of courseon my bag in general when I travel over Italy with some of Zocko's stuffs.

      Since I love to wear backpack, the first thing pops in my head what to bring in Italy is a backpack! You know why? Backpack is very simple and useful, hence it can carry many things inside. Umm… the confusing thing is which one is going to be brought to travel since Zocko has many bag choices to pick hahahaha..

What are the stuffs inside the backpack?

Camera: You know how it works ;p definitely to capture our beautiful moments and scenery in Italy. This Hasselblad Lunar from Zocko is yummeehh!!
Lightweight Tote Bag: We fill with the souvenirs we buy! I may buy many souvenirs btw so I will collect another tote from 100 Thing Tote.
Water Bottle: Saving us from thirsty. The "Keep Calm & Carry On" bottle is so England. Maybe next trip?
Wallet: Keeping our euros and debit/credit card neatly. Hope the map of Italy can't be seen very clearly on this look-alike-map Travel Range Wallet or I will rip out my map.
Sunglasses! They are purposed to cover our confused face while lost in Italy, anyway. Hahaha.
Organizer or Notebook: Perhaps?
Travel Wallet: Saving your passport or visa, maps and other needed documents.
Umbrella: It is useful every time, whenever the weather becomes very hot or rainy one. Try to have one from Zocko: Mini Samurai Umbrella!!! It is pretty weirdly awesome.
Cellphone (and the case, additionally!): Besides to call or text someone, we can see the digital map and route easily (and of course our favorite digital books too, no more sweaty!). I choose Iphone 5 or 5s to accompany me along the travel because it is so sophisticated.
Powerbank: It is necessarily needed to plug in our cellphone or camera battery in order we can keep updating our latest travel news in instagram, path, and twitter. :p This Powerbank Magic Box is 13000 mAh, say no to being isolated!
Small flashlights: Walks of Italy says, “Not strictly necessary, but handy, whether for fiddling with the impossible-to-figure-out lock of your bed and breakfast or looking at a map at night, or for peering into a crevice in a catacomb. Bonus: They make these small and powerful these days, so there aren’t any space issues.

Cala Dogana, Italy

Some other important tips what to bring from Journey Woman and Travel Tips USA Today:

Tissues: To double as toilet paper. There will inevitably be places that are lacking
Band Aids and moleskin: In case of foot blisters.
Cover-Ups for anything sleeveless: At Saint Peter’s in Rome, you’ll be turned away if your shoulders aren’t covered, and all those many churches in Italy with the beautiful masterpieces inside would prefer that you follow the shoulder-cover modesty when you enter.
Copy of your passport, credit card numbers, and toll-free numbers: to call in case of credit card loss. Give another copy and your itinerary to someone who can easily be reached, so they can be sent to you if necessary. Before you go, call your bank and credit card companies to give them a heads up, as in these days of high security, they may block your card if they aren’t forewarned about your foreign spending.
Pages of guidebooks: Rip out those that apply to your destination. Don’t take the whole heavy book.
Streetwise Maps: for the cities you’ll be visiting. These laminated, purse-friendly, well-indexed maps are far superior to
the ones hotels and tourist kiosks hand out. You can buy them in U.S. bookstores or online: www.streetwisemaps.com.
Tips: Leave all valuables at home; pack only costume jewelry and inexpensive watches; petty thieves can be found in Italy's major cities. Take only one bag to Italy, especially if you plan to train-travel around the country.
