Packing lighter while traveling is near impossible task for most of us, but condensing carry-on down to a handful of essentials doesn’t have to be hard!
Whenever we plan a vacation, hills or beaches always hit our mind then the next essential task is packing for the trip. We should make a list of things to carry while.
Some must-have carry essentials that make every travel trip easier are the following:
1) Good Carry Bag:
First of all, you would require a good carry bag that could fit everything you need. It took me several years to find a shoulder bag/tote bag that should hold everything including my laptop bag and should be stylish enough to use as a large purse and a business bag for travel.
2) Snacks and Water:
You should pack snacks on flights, water can be bought. No matter how long or what time your flight is, you should always pack a bag of snacks like granola bars and almonds or little packs of peanut butter, plus an apple and a banana. This way you are covered and don’t find yourself buying a 15$ bag of snack in flight because you’re starving.
3) Electronic Gadgets like Chargers and Headphones:
You should not forget to bring the charger on the plane. Do not put them in your checked luggage or in the suitcase that’s in the overhead compartment. You should carry at minimum a USB cord for your phone and other devices. You can also carry mini chargers and cords with you in your purse or you can also have a spare phone cord and USB plug so you can never forget.
4) Skincare – Keep yourself away from dry skin problems:
Weather is usually cold and dry or cold and too moist on the higher altitudes and these areas also receive the direct sun rays. The human skin goes through a test in such kinds of weathers so it’s necessary to prepare your skin.
5) Cash – ATMs are not available everywhere:
During seasons, tourist places are crowded. And I’m sure you would not want to waste your precious holiday time standing in ATM queues. There are so many places where you won’t get the ATMs. So, it’s better to carry sufficient cash and not rely on cards completely.
6) First Aid Box With Medicines:
Who doesn’t love snow and rain but our immune system continuously remains on the war in such conditions. You should carry the first aid box with all the necessary medicines that you might require during the trip.
7) Sunglasses (&Headphones):-
You should not forget to pack sunglasses before you leave. Keep a spare pair to wear to the airport and pack your favorites in your carry on the night before. It’s a hazard when you leave your house at 3 am, it’s still dark so you forget them.
8) Comfortable Shoes and Slippers:-
No matter how much you take care of your health with wollen clothes but wrong shoes will always beat your purpose. You should carry at least two pair of shoes or boots as those are perfect for hill climbing and snow walking and should carry a pair of slipper for indoor use.
9) Thermal water bottle – For Hydration:
Though there are few food stalls on the way and uphills, it’s better to carry your own sipper. It’s very important to keep yourself hydrated during the journey especially when you are on the trail. Fill your bottle with water or any hot beverage of your choice and keep sipping in the go.
10) Baby Or Kid’s essentials:-
If you are traveling with kids, you don’t forget the musts for them too. Carrying some extra baby-diapers and wipes are really essential with clothes and shoes. Things are almost available everywhere but the prices can be a bit higher or maybe you don’t get the perfect fit for them. So you should carry these things with you while traveling.
Traveling and experiencing new things is exciting. Pacing these important things will make long travel days much easier.
