These are some of the most essential items you need to make sure you have the best trip possible.
Everybody loves traveling, but these things are some must haves if you want to travel in comfort and style. We are not going to talk about obvious things like your passport, phone or toothbrush, but there are a few items that you might not think of, but need to go out and get immediately before you set off on your trip!
Sleeping on a plane can be a nightmare. With no leg room and often being sandwiched in between people, it can be hard to figure out a way to get a few minutes of rest. Not only this, but airplanes are often frigidly cold! The travel hoodie pillow is an awesome combination of comfort and warmth so you can sleep even in the worst of conditions.
Everybody knows that old joke, “What’s the deal with airplane food?” These days, you are lucky if your flight even offers any food at all. At the same time, airport food is often very overpriced and not particularly tasty. If you do not have the ability to pack some quality food before you good then be sure to stock up on some Kind Bars as they perfectly skirt that line between delicious and healthy.
Dehydration is a serious issue on airplanes and that beverage cart never comes around enough. This is particularly essential if you are on a long-haul flight and you wake up in the middle of the night. Bring a large empty water bottle and fill it up after you cross through security. This way you can stay hydrated and not get ripped off at the airport.
Unless you are in the middle of nowhere and have no other options (which does happen), then you should always use credit cards. There are a variety of excellent travel credit cards that not only offer you rewards for every purchase you make, but also protect against fraud and can help you secure a return if you there is something wrong with what you purchase.
For Your Health
Travelling is a ton of fun. It is a great time to try new foods, make new friends and have fantastic adventures. A lot of people also use this as an excuse to eat poorly and stop exercising. As tempting as that is, you will thank yourself later if you keep a little discipline.
There are a lot of exercise apps that you can use to keep track of how much you walk among other things (shoot for 10,000 a day). If you have a supplement or vitamin regimen, keep that going as well. Make sure you get plenty of sleep too. Although doing these things may not be the most fun, you will have much more energy so you can make the most of your trip.
The Most Important Thing
Sounds stupid, but we all have seen it—lines of unsmiling tourists tiredly trudging to the usual tourist travel traps. Regardless of what you do, just be sure to have fun!
