Are you on the road for a holiday vacation? Whether you are traveling for 1 week or 1 month, every item you put inside your bag should serve a specific purpose.
Deciding on the things you are going to bring is the most crucial part of packing. It is clear that you cannot pack everything inside the house. You are left with the question, what am I going to bring? Well, it is quite stressing to some knowing that packing the wrong things can ruin your dream getaway.
With a little-know-how, your packing preparation can surely be as easy as 1,2 and 3. Here is a list of random travel necessities that might make sense on your next trip.
It might sound weird but bringing a paper bag with you is the most helpful thing you can do. Use it as a bag for your dirty clothes and shoes. You may also use this to secure your leaky bottles like shampoo. Plastic bags are lightweight and will not consume too much on your bag so you do not have to worry.
Headache due to jetlag, stress and long delays is very common when you travel. Always pack a couple of painkillers for this scenario.
Pen and Mini Notepad
A pen is a must have during travel (but I guess not everyone knows this). You need one when filling out custom forms or jotting down confirmation numbers. You cannot always rely on your electronic devices so it will be helpful to bring one. It is also necessary to bring a mini notepad where you can write down all the information you need. You might misplace a piece of paper but not a notepad.
Your travel means a lot of walk and no matter how many times you have worn your shoes, walking all day can still cause blisters. However, you do not have to worry if you have band-aid in your bag.
Bring reusable containers for your make-up, vitamins and even face lotion.
Your travel will surely be long. You might want to bring face wipes to freshen up. You can use this to remove your make up or clean your face. If you are traveling with your kids, it is also more advisable to bring one.
For sure, your hotel will provide you all the utensils you need, but if you are an on-the-go person, bringing plastic utensils would be a great help. If you are planning to have a pack lunch for sightseeing, you can just grab your food and eat outside.
If you are planning to travel on cold weather destination, it is also advisable to pack a flip-flop with you. You can use them when you stay somewhere with a hot tub. I am sure you do not want to wear boots in the hotel pool.
In order to save papers and space on your bag, instead of printing all the confirmation you need, you can just save it in a flash drive. In case of emergency, you can pop it up on your laptop ot hotel computer to get the information you need.
I am sure you will feel too much excitement on your new surroundings. Never forget to pack hand sanitizer to protect you and your kids from any germs you might acquire during the trip.
A tote bag is very useful in any travel. You can bring it with you anywhere at any time. Put all your stuff inside the bag and you are ready to go.
Do not stress yourself too much. Consider these essentials and enjoy packing!
