So, are you planning on going on a trip this summer? It’s always a good idea to be thoroughly prepared with essentials beforehand. This will save you a lot of trouble later on and you’ll be able to enjoy your trip while it lasts.
Checklists help. A LOT. So start writing off checklists wherever you want to reduce the likelihood of mishaps (you do, right?). This includes a checklist for the trip itself, where you’ll go, how much you’ll spend, and more.
Here is our guide to help you with the travel essentials so you’re at ease (for the majority of the time, at least).
A Portable Cell Phone Charger
We cannot stress this enough!! You must invest in a good portable cell phone charger and an extra charging cord for instances where you’ll be stuck with a dead phone. We’re living on our phones these days, from using social media to Google maps, currency and translating apps, and other tools. If your phone dies, what are you going to do? Yes. Be prepared.
A Pair of Good Earbuds
If there’s one essential thing that travelers keep forgetting, it’s earbuds. You want to get yourself high-quality noise-canceling earbuds so you don’t have to listen to crying babies on your flight. Also because you may get bored and want to watch a movie or listen to music. You can go with big headphones too but they’re usually pretty bulky and take up space.
Hmmm. Why phone handles? Because they’re genius! They are flat when you’re not using them and they pop out when you do to offer you an amazing grip when taking photos. They make it pretty easy to watch a movie as well, so why not?
A Mirrorless Camera
If you’re someone who takes a lot of photos, you should invest in a high-quality mirrorless camera. You don’t have to drag around a DSLR anymore when you can use something so lightweight, compact, and fantastic.
A Packable Jacket
One can never be sure of the weather, so, it’s always a good idea to carry a water-resistant packable jacket with you.
A Fold-Up Bag
For dirty laundry, delicate items, and souvenirs from the trip – it’s also a great idea to have a toiletries bag for shampoos, and a tote bag for shopping. They don’t take up much space and will end up being a blessing on the flight back home.
What an odd thing to keep. But, it helps a ton. Sometimes your luggage will start smelling old and stale. However, with lavender sachets, your clothes and other things will keep smelling super fresh.
Packing Cubes for Clothes
Rolling your clothes is just not enough, you’re still using too much space. Instead, invest in packing cubes and see how easily they organize your suitcase. They’re a huge help, especially if you’re traveling to different destinations and have to change hotels.
Zip Lock Bags
Stash a few zip lock bags with you as well. They’ll help you with wet bathing suits, to organize your clothes, separate out dirty clothes, and to travel accessories or souvenirs.
A Crossbody Bag
A unisex crossbody bag will be your best friend when you’re exploring around. It can carry your wallet, camera, phone, portable charger, and other essentials while offering you maximum security from pickpockets.
A Hand Fan
Traveling in summer means unexpected hot days, especially if you’re traveling in a warm climate. A hand fan will help you beat the heat and stay on top of your game.
Everyone needs a hat, even if you don’t think you do. So, pack your favorite baseball cap because you may need shade on your trip.
A must-have because you never know when you may need medicine for aches, headaches, tummy problems, or pains. So, get a small bag and stack in some bandages, allergy medicine, painkillers, vitamin B, and Imodium.
