After using the same travel gear for a good few years now I’ve decided to update what I take away in my carry on bag.
You can’t really beat the quality and functionality you get from a DSLR.
This Canon 700d came with a EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens
Canon EF S 10 18mm f/4.5 5.6 IS STM Lens that has Ultra Wide Angle, great for landscape.
I replaced the standard Canon battery charger with one that could use USB to charge.

It’s not really worth the risk of taking your high value phone with you, It’s too easy to lose, break or be stolen.
This is my backup phone that replaces me having to lug a netbook around (for internet access and music)
It’s not locked to a network which is important if you’re going to use sims from different countries. It would be handy if it had two sim card slots but I’ll just have to swap them over.
I’ve put all my music on it along with a few apps like Google translate, Currency Converter and airline apps.
All this fits nicely into my carry on luggage and I no longer have to keep taking my netbook out when going through security.
