With 100’s of travel accessories available it is sometimes difficult to choose which ones to buy and which to omit. My list gives a run down on the top ten must haves for any traveller.
1. Travel Adaptor. If you are traveling to a country where not everyone speaks English then you must consider getting a travel adaptor if you plan to visit more than one country on holiday. This will help to adapt to the local currency and will be useful for when you arrive in the country itself.Adaptors can be purchased new or used which gives you more options in the event of lost luggage which you may encounter if you take all your equipment in carry on bags.
2. Travel Wallet. When traveling you do not want to be taken for a ride by your wallet. You should carry cash in a secure pocket to avoid pickpockets. A good travel wallet will have inner compartments where you can keep your valuables safe. They often come with a money pocket for you to keep your money in. Never lose your money when you are traveling by air!
3. Concealed Waist Wallet. After you reach your destination and settled in at your hotel you will no longer need to carry around all your currency. I recommend that you just carry the cash you need for the day with you in your wallet. This makes it easier to deal with and you won’t eat you wallet when you are in a pickle!
4. Hat – Not only is it a good looking hat, but it is good for your health too. There are many if chances your erg. Cold, flu, insect bites can be keen. Take an eraser and tiny blade with you for some clean cuts and comfortable.
5. Firewood. It may sound odd to consider but if you are traveling and have firewood to burn, you may consider carrying it. You could fold it up, keeping it in your money wallet or travel wallet for when you are at your hotel, or restaurants.
6. Flashlight. Try and keep a flashlight on you at all times. I keep a Fenix on me at all times. It is small and easily stored in my wallet.
7. Cell Phone. See if you need a cell phone that is unlocked for use in the United States. Unlocked cell phones are increasingly difficult to purchase and may charge much more than a prepaid model. If you have a job and want to generate business while on vacation a cell phone is necessary. Also check with your plan to see if international roaming is available.
8. Small umbrella.
9. maps and guides. Remember this is your new home. You should take a small, light travel book with you to avoid accidentally leaving something behind. You may also want to buy a guide for the areas you will be visiting.
10. Patience. When dealing with bureaucracy or dealing with a country whose language you do not speak, you will want to be patient and remind yourself that patience is a virtue. In those situations, remind yourself that you will probably be only dealing with a handful of people that speak English and in many places, a friendly smile and a firm handshake are required.
I do hope this will help you be able to relax and enjoy your time traveling abroad.
