Top 3 Things You Need on Your Traveling Checklist
Going travelling is super exciting and whilst you”™re planning all the amazing adventures you”™re going to be having, you”™ve also got to set aside some time to make a list of all the essentials you”™ll need to take with you on your travels.
Whilst we know that you”™ll have made space for your bikinis and your camera for snapping all those once in a lifetime moments, we”™ve thought of a few handy essentials you might forget which might just make your travelling life much easier. Here”™s the top 5 things you need to add to your travelling checklist:
Mini First Aid Kit
From plasters for cushioning those blisters from all the walking, to inspect repellent spray and even some Imodium tablets for when you”™ve eaten something that doesn”™t sit very well in your stomach, there are a number of reasons why you”™ll need a mini first aid kit when travelling. Although you can buy all of the essentials, it”™s often much handier to have them with you in your backpack so you can deal with any problems straight away, especially the more embarrassing ones.
Photocopies of your Documents
One of the last things you”™re probably thinking about whilst planning your travels is photocopying your passport and driving license but it”™s super important that you do. We hope that it doesn”™t, but should anything happen to your passport or driver”™s license whilst your travelling having a photocopy of it with you makes it much easier to sort out replacing them. Be sure to keep the copies separate to the real thing so you don”™t end up losing them both at once.
A Bum Bag
What better way to keep all your most important possessions safe than by keeping them strapped to your body at all times. Bum bags are by far one of the safest places for keeping your valuables, think your purse, passport and phone. At Skate Hut you”™ll be able to pick up a great bum bag with a variety of different styles and designs available, so all your belongings will stay safe and within easy reach.
Once you”™ve packed the top 3 essentials you”™re bound to come across loads of other things you need to squish in your rucksack. Remember that you”™ll have to carry everything around with you for the duration of your trip so it”™s best to pack as light as possible and don”™t take anything not deemed essential. Happy Travels!
