My recent weekend getaway, brought this list to mind. These are the things I never travel without. I have found them useful for every trip that I have been on, and if I happened to forget one of them, the item was very much missed.
1. First Aid Kit
Here is what I have in mine:
- nail clippers
Perfect for pools and showers, or just to wear with your jeans.
3. Umbrella or poncho
I have a compact size umbrella that I use for travel, it takes up very little room in my suitcase.
4. Cuddle Duds/Under Armour aka Long Underwear
Which ever brand you prefer, this is a great item to have with you. When I want to Egypt several years ago, I took my Cuddle Duds, “just in case”. Well, when I had to climb Mt. Sinai in 30 degree weather, I was so glad that I had them. Now, I always pack them! They roll up very small and take up very little room.
I take Febreeze to freshen my clothes and Lysol to freshen the hotel rooms. Just be sure to get the travel size.
Personally, I prefer a book, but which ever you prefer, having something to entertain yourself is a must.
7. MP3 Player/Games
Another alternative for entertainment. Perfect to keep yourself occupied on plane and bus rides.
9. Hand Sanitizer
In case you can’t get to the bathroom to wash your hands.
A lot easier to pack than an iron. Again, look for the travel size.
This is my list, what’s on your’s?
