Remember travelling to other cities and countries and going to cinemas with friends weekly? Since the pandemic, you chat via Facebook, watch YouTube videos, and play roulette online instead of these activities. But soon we’ll start travelling again.
Imagine an upcoming journey to an unknown or familiar country. But what to take with you? You’re sure to have a situation where your luggage is huge, and half of it, you never used on arrival. But some of the necessary things are missing catastrophically. Here is what must definitely be in your luggage.
To store documents and tickets, it is better to buy a holder or a wallet. It will keep them in one place and not crumple. If you have the desire and skill, the holder is easy to make yourself. They are made from natural and artificial leather, fabric, or plastic.
The second item after documents and money will be your smartphone. And it tends to run down at the most inopportune moment. And then you have to forget about calling loved ones, chatting on the Internet, taking pictures from the tour and browsing maps. So it’s a good idea to have with you an external power source, at least with a small capacity.
Don’t forget to buy organisers and cosmetic bags. They will help maintain order and sort everything by category. Organisers come in all shapes and sizes: wire, underwear, shirts, cosmetics, medicine, etc.
Naturally, you will drink water: on the road, on the beach, or during an excursion. And it will have to be bought. Such a travel bottle will allow you to replenish in time and will save from unnecessary spending. Besides, when empty it is packed to miniature size. By the way, it’s a good idea for a gift for a traveller.
Instead of simple tags, where the contact information of the owner was specified, the technological solutions have come. The beacon tag will track the location of the suitcase. It will also help to quickly find the luggage on the belt thanks to the connection with the smartphone app.
Backpack With Inside Locks
The locks are not on the top or the front as we are used to, but on the back, on the back side. Now an intruder won’t unzip your luggage without you noticing and won’t get to its contents. Another alternative is to consider a backpack with a code lock.
Theft and robbery are encountered by every tourist. To save any amount of cash, it is a good idea to have a stash in a hiding place.
An alarm system protects your temporary home from unauthorised entry. There are options in the form of a corner under the door or a hinge mounted on the handle. The alarm will raise a ruckus, and the intruder will have to quickly retreat.
Thermos for Food
When away from home, there’s not always confidence in the food quality. And while it is easier for an adult to adapt to unfamiliar food, it is a challenge for a child. A small thermos can solve this problem. You fill it in advance with food for your kid, and at the right moment, a hot meal is at hand.
You can always carry with you a compact raincoat and protect yourself from the rain in case of sudden bad weather. It’s much more practical than a heavy umbrella. It is better to choose a model with a clasp at the side. Then the chances of staying dry, even in a tropical downpour is much higher.
Buff is a multi-functional head-wear that is used in many cases. It will protect from sun, dust, and wind. It looks like a rectangular tube of fabric, narrowed on one side. It is used as a hat, as a scarf, as a kerchief, and even as a top.
You can choose a buff from any fabric. For hot climates, thin fabrics will do, and for cold climates it is worth taking a fleece one.
It is good to have hand scales, so as not to exceed the established limits of cargo weight at the airport. Having weighed your luggage in advance, you will know if there is no overweight and you don’t have to pay extra.
