    Yes. A banno bunka or santoku at minimum. Will bring a small cheapie end-grain board if possible. If driving, then I might up it to a single 240 gyuto. And of course bring my own microfiber cloths to keep my knife dry as I work and after washing.

    Been known to pack some single bevels as well if I know what I'm going to be prepping for friends or family while traveling - most usually a kiritsuke or funayuki/mioroshi when I do, depending on what I have planned.

    I feel a sense of unease if I'm traveling, can prepare something simple to eat, and have nothing decent to use. In some places in the world that causes problems. You might be able to pack a knife into checked-in luggage for air travel to get there, but you cannot have any knives on you when traveling by ground transportation.

    Keep adding some stuff and took DMT and felt strop out. The edge should hold fine for 3 weeks of relatively light cutting.

    225mm gyuto
    150mm honesuki/petty
    11x16x1.75" board
    1.5q All Clad mixing bowl (love the handle on that one, best design ever)
    Zeiss peeler (inexpensive and efficient)
    Salt/Pepper mill (nothing better than fresh ground pepper)
    MicroPlane coarse grater
    Rosle medium tangs

    If I'm going somewhere for a couple of days or more, at a minimum, I'll bring my 120 petty or small Global vegetable knife and a small poly cutting board.

    If I know I'm going to be cooking, then I'll bring anything that I need, except for bulky appliances, glass items, or pots.

    165 Dojo AS nakiri
    150 Hattori petty
    A good bread knife

    I am being very minimal in what I would like to have at my disposal. I will be cooking at least breakfast (omelet, greens, some sides), so these items will come handy. I will gift most of these items to family and friends upon return, and I travel light, so carrying a little extra stuff one-way is not a problem.

    Nix

    Not a chance, on a holiday, to me, there will be staff fixing my meals

    When going hiking/trekking/Fishing on the mountains or in the woods all I would bring is a Brusletto or a Helle EDC

    LOL. Dude, you have no idea how much I hate to travel with lots of stuff. On the other hand, I hate even more to use stuff what other people consider decent (cheap dull kitchen knives, crappy pans, and other inferior kitchen stuff). Yes, I can fix a meal without any nice things, but one reason we are all here is that we enjoy NICE THINGS, and clearly find that our experience is enhanced by using a sharp knife or a good quality pan or a nice size cutting board.

    I also love to gift things. If I didn't have to work for a living, that is all would do, make things and give them away.

    When it's convenient and worthwhile I'll bring at least a gyuto, a petty, a hi-soft board, and a flat metal baking sheet. I also have a couple of splash and go stones but I rarely need them because I sharpen my stuff before I put them in the bag. A spatula (wooden/heat resistant) and stir fry pan are optional but sometimes needed.
