10 Essential Items To Pack For Every Trip!
When traveling, packing light isn’t as important as packing smart. Since travel inconveniences amplify when you’re on your own in a foreign country, you want to prepare for any scenario that will set you back on your journey.
First and foremost, the items at the top of the priority list should provide comfort and convenience—and ideally serve more than one purpose. So leave behind the strappy heels you’ll only wear once (no matter how cute they’ll look in your photos), and make sure you’re choosing things efficiently.
1. Hard Shell Rolling Carry-on Suitcase
Soft suitcases have more space to squeeze in extra items, until it came the tragic time that you had to drag your bag through the rain with a pathetic garbage bag over it, and your stuff still got soaked. It’s time to wise up and get a hard shell rolling carry-on suitcase.
Two straps are always better than one. Not only does a backpack spread the weight out better, but anything that lets you be hands-free while navigating routes solo is a godsend.
3. Plastic bags
Stock up some plastic storage bags. While the teeny ones are perfect for holding medication, the other sizes fit everything from chargers and toiletries to passports and phones. Opt for the thicker bags to protect against moisture. The clear plastic makes it easy to stay organized and find things quickly. Also, pack extras—they can easily be stashed at the bottom of a bag and you never know what size and shape will come in handy.
4. Multipurpose shoes
Limit yourself to bring only two pairs of shoes for your trip. One pair of waterproof, durable sneakers and another pair of shoes comfortable enough to use on long walks but can also work when going out to catch a theater performance.
5. Money belt
With multiple pockets, you are able to organize your passport and other currencies without having to give them a second thought. The protection layer against cyber fraud offers bonus security.
Whether to keep warm, dress up an outfit, cover your head, or use as an extra blanket, a large scarf can serve any number of purposes.
7. Customized First-Aid Kit
Only you know what you might need the most, so run through your itinerary and the worst-case scenarios. Prepare whatever medicine and daily multivitamins you might need for the trip.
8. Flip Flops
Throw in a pair of flip flops. Since they’re water resistant, they serve a different purpose and are flat enough to take up minimal room along the side of a suitcase. Besides being useful for days at the beach, they can also protect your feet in the shower or a hostel floor you’d rather not step on.
9. Cell phone and Charger
You need them to keep in touch with the outside world. They also come in handy when you’re in an emergency.
10. Bluetooth Tracker – TAG La
With TAG La, you do not have to worry about losing things during your trip. With the Bluetooth technology, even if your item is missing, TAG La helps to find it back in seconds. Besides, TAG La can also be used as a camera remote control, so you can now take a perfect travel photo whenever and wherever you want without the help of other people and the annoying selfie stick.
