Buddy The Hello and welcome to the Buddy The Traveling Monkey Shop! Below you’ll find some of our favorite travel items. Everything from the backpacks we use to the services we use to make travel more affordable. Monkey Shop


Besides some clothes, these items are always in our backpack. We go more in-depth on these items in this post.

Carry-On Essentials


When we need to travel with more than just our backpack, we use our Singular Luggage suitcase. We love that this luggage is customizable. They have tons of artists collections that you can choose from, or you can create your own design using photos.

No more boring suitcase! We chose to use our brand logo and we love how it came out. Plus, having our own unique design makes it easier to find the suitcase at baggage claim (LOL!).

Other features we love about our Singular Luggage:

Zipped pockets, a section divider, and click straps that keeps our things organized

360 degree spinner wheels

TSA lock on the side keeps our stuff secure

Reinforced corners that protect against wear and tear

Before we traveled to Iceland, we realized how unprepared we were for cold climates. These items helped us survive lol!

We head to the beach as often as we can! We grew up in Florida, can you blame us? ? We also have this article that goes more in depth on our favorite beach products.
