Oh, the excitement of travelling! Destination decided, tickets booked, hotel booked, shopping done and the only thing left is to do the packing. Packing the bags before the trip is an exciting job for some, but others may struggle with it. You get your favourite clothes and the new ones you specially bought for this trip. The camera is a must. Well, the list of things to pack in your travel bag goes on.
Pack all you need on the trip, but you must not forget the essentials. It’s obvious that the travel essentials depend on your destination, but there are a few things you will need, doesn’t matter where you go.
- Luggage Weighing Scale
We are sure carrying a weighing scale must definitely not have crossed your travel essentials list. While traveling especially by air, getting a portable weighing scale will enable you to not cross the luggage limits. Try to find the perfect one which suits your needs from a wide range of products available in the market.
- Compass For Directions
Yes, we are talking about the sailor’s compass which has not been a part of our lives for decades now. But when going on an adventure, the network of your cell phones may not always work. Carrying a compass is an old school way of finding the locations and may come in handy.
On an adventure journey or treks, seeing flora and fauna is the best attraction. Looking at birds, animals and insects in their natural habitat is surely going to enhance your travel experience. So do not forget to carry a pair of binoculars on your journey.
- International Travel Adaptor
It is always advisable to make provisions for an emergency. In case the lodging facility you stay in does not provide for charging your gadget, it would cause you unnecessary trouble. So, carry an international travel adaptor which will enable you to charge your gadgets easily as any facility available.
- Portable Water Purifier
There are a few portable purifier options available in the market which will enable you to filter the water on the go. AS adventure trips usually do not vouch for clean drinking water and it is also not possible to buy mineral water on the go, a portable water purifier may prove to be useful.
- Portable Washing Bag
Have you heard about portable laundry before? These tiny and lightweight laundry machines help you clean the solid dirty laundry. Carrying a huge suitcase would be cumbersome on an adventure trip, and washing clothes is yet another headache. So get hold of a portable wash bag before heading on your adventure trip.
- Power Bank
We know it is one of the common things to add to the travel list but it is also something that is easily forgotten. Always carry a lightweight, fully charged portable power bank so that you will never get out of power to connect your emergency devices.
Now we all know how the saying goes, better safe than sorry! Make sure that you carry your prescription medicines along with some other medications just in case you feel under the weather due to a headache, stomach upset or any other issue. Better, make a small and portable first-aid box and carry it whenever you’re travelling.
