10 Absolute Essentials for When You Travel

3 min read

The beautiful weather these days practically begs us to take a holiday – maybe a solo-trek in the nearby hill station or a road trip with your buddies! We know you’ll probably schedule a tightly-packed trip on the weekend and so you won’t have a lot of time to prepare. Everyone packs clothes properly, but there are a few small things that are left behind. Here’s an easy must-have checklist so you’re not left wanting for anything.

Lightweight Hoodie:

This is generally the most ignored but pretty much the most indispensable. Make sure you pack this so you’re covered up against a chilly early-morning breeze or unexpected showers.

Power Bank:

Your phone becomes a messiah when you’re travelling. From maps, to booking tickets to well, clicking selfies! But it’s going to run out of juice real soon coz you keep whipping it out. Re-energize it with a trusty power bank, anywhere you are!

Wet Wipes:

When you’re trekking or spending long hours in a bus or car, it’s quite prudent to keep a few wipes handy coz you never know when you’ll get water. Sweaty? Wipe it out! Did you spill something? Wipe it out!

Lotion:

The wind and dust and neglect can easily make your skin dry out. A small bottle of lotion will keep you covered!

Sanitizer:

Keep germs in check even when you’re in remote places without a hand-wash in sight!

Two Extra Changes of Underwear:

Now, this is a total mom thing to say, but you never know when you’ll need it! We cannot emphasize enough on this: carry at least two extra pairs of underwear! Better safe than sorry, right?

Basic Med-kit:

Just so you stay fit-as-a-fiddle and toss out any illnesses that threaten you, pop a few essential pills and capsules (for fever, loosies, constipation, nausea, headache, cramps) in a small med-bag. Don’t forget to throw in a handful of band-aids, cotton, and some antiseptic as well.

Thermo Flask:

A trusty water bottle you can sling onto your backpack is absolutely needed. A thermos flask is even better so you can store warm/cold drinks as per your needs.

Travel Toothbrush Kit:

After brushing your teeth, shoving the wet toothbrush inside the kit feels yucky, right? Get a toothbrush travel holder which can neatly hold both, your brush and paste, compactly.

Hunger Saviours:

Often times, travelling means you won’t get the chance to stop somewhere for a quick bite/sip. It’s always great to carry foods that pack a punch in small packaging. Think: Snickers bars, glucose tetra packs, nuts.

There you go! Be sure to pack all these and sprint into the vacay air.
