Things to carry on summer vacations
What does thinking about holidays make you feel? Happy? Excited? Tensed about what all to pack? Most people stress over what to pack and what to leave. The fear of forgetting something is always there. So to bust your stress away here’s a list of stuff which are essential whenever you’re headed out of station.
Sickness can survive anywhere, so to ensure that you’re in the pink of your health on your trip you should always carry medicines prescribed by the doctor with you. The prescription should also be carried always as it’ll save time in the case ofserious emergencies. One must also carry medicines of common and easy to get effected diseases like common cold, fever, headache as well. A first aid box should also be carried always so as to take the first aid during emergencies. The first aid box should have ointments and bandages. Multivitamins can also be carried to avoid dehydration. The recommended vitamins are vitamin A, B6, B2, C, and K. they are not only good at preventing dehydration but also good at lowering the blood sugar level.
Which and what kind of clothes to pack? This is a question that never ceases to puzzle. Keep you likes and dislikes aside for a moment and think clearly about the weather and the culture of the destination. These are the considerations that should never be ignored.
Also , always carry a bag to keep the dirty clothes, so that they don’t mix with the clean clothes and make them stink. If the weather will be warm one should take adequate clothes but also make sure to keep a set of warm clothes like a cap, shawl, jacket, etc just in case it rains or gets cold at night.
The clothes somehow find a way to get wrinkles when packed so try packing dark shades as the wrinkles are not much clear on them. To make more space in your bag roll your clothes and then keep them in your bag. This way you can add more stuff in your bag.
Whenever you’re travelling via air, try wearing the heavy clothes because they weigh the bag, not you. So wear your heaviest jacket and pair of jeans.
Keep two sets of night suits which should be very comfortable so that you wake up fresh the next morning and keep more sets of undergarments as you will might not be able to wash them on your trip.
These days it’s really necessary to carry your identity proof with you. Be it your license or passport or aadhar card. Something that shows your name and address would work. The hotels don’t allow people to rent a room without a valid identity proof. Also in the cse of any emergency, mishap or other contingency it’d be of great help to the family or someone else who wants to help. Moreover, one’s name should also be mentioned inside and outside of the bag incase it gets stolen or lost.
Nobody likes a tanned skin, thus to avoid tanning on your summer vacation carry a sunscreen with you in your tote bag and always keep it handy. It will help you in preventing a sunburn in the scorching summer heat. You’ll need a sunscreen of sun protection factor (SPF) 30 or 50. Sunscreen also prevents you from the harmful UV rays of the sun. It has also been proven that sunscreens reduce the risk of getting skin cancer. You can also use spray on sunscreens which are easy to use. So to avoid getting dark on your trip, use the sunscreen generously on your face and hands.
Any trip is incomplete without money and thus, it’s very important to carry cash or cards along whenever travelling. These days plastic money or cards are more preferred than cash. Hence, it’s really necessary to carry more than one card, credit or debit, incase one gets damaged or lost or worst case scenario, gets stuck in an ATM machine . Sufficient amout of cash should also be carried, just in case the ATMs cease to work.
If you’re going to a foreign trip make sure to get your currency exchanged to the currency of the country you’re travelling to.
Comfortable footwear is a must have for a fun filled trip. You don’t want sore feet or difficulty in walking on your trip. So fashion is secondary but comfort is first. If you’re going trekking don’t forget to carry shoes which are comfortable in trekking. If you’re going to a beach don’t forget your comfortable flipflops, they make your outfit look great and are the most comfortable and easy to wear footwear. You can wrap your footwear in a newspaper or make a separate bag for them because you don’t really want your clothes to get dirty. Make sure to carry less pair of footwears. Try picking up shoes or other footwear which go along with most of your outfits.
Hunger can strike anytime, anywhere. Carry a bag of chips or brownies,chocolates, bars, biscuits or wafers handy for the times when hunger strikes at odd hours, or incase you’re stuck somewhere. Also, always carry a water bottle with you. This is the golden rule of travelling. Carrying food along will also keep you away from the unhealthy food sold on the way to your destination. You can also carry fruits, but make sure they are fresh otherwise they’ll start stinking.
Though most of the stuff will be provided by the hotel or resort itself, you can be on the safe side and carry your own facewash suited to your skin type, bdy lotion, shaving kit, sanitary napkins, shampoo. And most of all do not forget your toothbrush and toothpaste.
