Man who traveled to every country in the world reveals the 4 items he never travels without

1. Carrying around a piece of paper is safer than carrying around a laptop or iPad

Garfors points out that if locals in poor countries notice a foreigner toting expensive gadgets such as a phone, iPad, or laptop, they're more likely to try to steal from that tourist. Plus, you might end up paying more for certain services.

2. Some airports don't accept electronic tickets

Garfors remembers an airport he encountered in India that does not allow people in unless they have a printed-out ticket for their flight. Garfors was forced to return to the city, find an internet cafe, and print his ticket. For that reason, he makes sure to print his tickets out as a part of his itinerary.

3. You might encounter people who don't speak English

Garfors brings a small notepad with him in case he's trying to communicate with someone who doesn't speak his language (and Garfors doesn't speak theirs). That way, he can draw what he's trying to say. "I did this in Iran. I had to draw my dinner in order to get served, and I'm a horrible drawer. I had chicken for me, and a cow for my brother, and we actually got served what I managed to draw," Garfors says.

4. If you don't have a pen, you'll end up waiting to fill out forms

According to Garfors, many of the countries he visited throughout his travels require visitors to fill out certain forms in order to enter the country. This process can be especially slow when you don't have a pen handy and need to wait to borrow someone else's.
