There are some things every traveller should never be without. To ensure you are fully prepared for your trip, here are the items you must take with you on your adventures.The Adaptable Baby Wipes
This is one item you must take with you wherever you go, because it can be used for a variety of purposes. From wiping food stains quickly off your clothes, mud on your legs or leaks in your bag, you will be glad you carried this handy little item with you. They’re also a great way to freshen yourself up on the plane, train or bus.
Don’t think you don’t need a lightweight jacket or jumper when travelling to a warmer climate, because the most tropical destinations can sometimes be partial to strong winds and rain. The days might be warm but there’s no guarantee the temperature will remain warm come night time. Pack something a little warmer, just in case you need it.
On my first trip to Thailand, I forgot my camera and was a little bit devastated. My money was tied up for activities and food and I didn’t have the cash to go out and buy another, so had to make do with a less than average camera on my phone. It is one of the best ways to keep a record of all the memories you will make throughout your trip, so make sure you pack it.
Now I have never forgotten my passport in all my years of travelling, but many of my friends have. It can be so easy to forget it, because you put it in your bag once and tell yourself it is there – maybe forgetting you went looking for something else before you headed off and forgot to place it back in your bag. Check it twice, check it five times, check it ten times, just check you have it.
You might think you have everything you need in your suitcase, but it never hurts to take hand luggage, even if you just carry an empty bag onto the plane with you. You might get to the airport and find your suitcase is a little heavy – so avoid charges and pack up what you can in your hand luggage, which will provide you with space to pack more on the way back, if you need it.
With all the walking, hiking and drinking people enjoy on holiday, it can be so easy to get into a few scrapes, such as cutting your feet, grazing your arm or suffering a burn on a temperamental hotel oven. By placing a first aid kit in your bag, you will have some of the basic tools you need to treat mild injuries.
Travelling can be unpredictable. There might be times when you need to write down someone’s phone number, note down the address of a destination or make a list of things you need for a new and exciting adventure. You will therefore be surprised by how quickly you can fill a notebook up.
