Like many avid travelers, I too am a traveling fanatic. Although I travel a lot to different places, I always try to travel like a pro. Believe me, traveling in itself is fun, but traveling like a pro is like taking the aspect of fun to a whole new level. It is always assumed (and, rightfully so) that traveling opens up a world of possibilities. You almost never know what is going to happen next. And, therefore, it is imperative to always stay prepared. Below mentioned are a few of the must-have products that you must invariably carry along, on all your travels. These products will help you to make your travel comfortable and stress-free.
1. Travel-Friendly Sewing Kit
A travel-friendly sewing kit will do wonders at unfortunate times of wardrobe malfunctions, especially at times when out of nowhere you will find a button of your shirt missing. A sewing kit comes in handy even for other unrelated to clothing purposes. For instance, if you wish to repair a tent or make a last minute fixing of your necklace, sewing kit will be helpful.
2. Body Wipes
Body wipes are another great product that you must carry. Traveling may not always be very glamorous as it also involves sitting in long-hour flights thereby affecting your skin. Besides, while traveling, you may not get access to clean water for showers, which is why you need good quality and natural body wipes such as defense soap body wipes or of other popular brands.
3. Hand Sanitizer
This particular product is not very surprising as almost all travelers carry a hand sanitizer while traveling. But, I thought it was worth mentioning in this list, in case you forgot. A hand sanitizer plays a pivotal role in keeping your hands clean while eating.
4. A Smartphone with Mint Application
Perhaps there is no need to give an explanation of the importance of traveling with a smartphone. In other words, your phone should contain emergency contacts, an alarm clock, a translator, and Mint application. For those who are not aware of Mint application – it is an application that lets you manage your finances, checks your travel budget and keeps a track of your expenses. Don’t worry about its privacy as it is just a ‘read-only’
5. Invest in a Good Handbag
I was always of the opinion that one should not spend on handbags as they are bad investments. I wish I thought otherwise. Don’t be a fool like me, invest in a good handbag. An aesthetically pleasing and functionally comfortable handbag will make your traveling fun and hassle-free.
6. A First-Aid Kit
Just like a sewing kit, a first-aid kit is also important while traveling. Make sure your first- aid kit contains all essential contents. Carry all your medicines that you take daily. Besides, carry antibiotics in your kit. Don’t forget to carry food poisoning medicines. All the other usual stuffs such as band-aids, thermometer, and so forth. It is a good idea to carry your doctor’s prescription and it should be written in English as that will help you buy medicines abroad.
7. All-in- one Converter
Carry an all-in- converter that fits the plugs in every country that you plan to visit and which also converts to 110V. Your all-in- one converter should be of good quality and should not fry your electronics or else you will be in deep trouble!
8. Carry No-Jet- Lag Pills
Although I love to travel, one thing that I detest the most is countering jet lag. I was struggling a lot with my jet lags previously, but during one of my flights, an airplane seatmate introduced me to No-Jet- Lag pills. I later researched and discussed the pill with my physician who confirmed its effectiveness and causes no known side-effects. Also, it is compatible with other medications.
9. A Travel Pillow
You will thank me later for this one, especially when you are stuck in a non-stop 16 hour flight! Our head, neck and shoulders are the worst affected areas while traveling in automobiles, which is why you mustn’t forget to carry a travel pillow at all your trips.
10. A Good Camera
How can you forget carrying a good quality camera in your trip? Irrefutably, a good camera is a profoundly significant tool for capturing memories that you are going to create in your travels. Good photographs are always a pleasure to look at once you are back from your trip.
Traveling helps you pursue pleasure and adventure, and it is strongly recommended to travel at every opportunity that life throws at you. Ensure that you travel like a pro, or at least try traveling like a pro. Hopefully, this article will help you get your act together!
