Travelling will never be the same!
“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page” – St. Augustine
Going out and seeing the world is perhaps one of the most popular hobbies in the world! Each year, there are millions and millions of other individuals who like us, set out to a foreign land, expecting to have their perspectives broadened, comfort zones challenged, to make new memories, and to experience how truly beautiful everything is through the lens of content and gratitude!
While travelling can be everything exciting and supreme, it can be nerve-wracking as you visit a foreign land for the first time. Though hiccups are inevitable, here are 7 things that will transform your travels!
1. Pack Light
There is no better way to treat yourself on your travel than with the smallest and lightest travel baggage! Just imagine how much more pleasurable manoeuvring around with light baggage and two free hands from the airport, rides on public transports and hopping from one destination to another will be!
2. Get Organised!
Roll your clothes! What a game-changer this is! This method not only compresses our clothes but keeps them intact no matter how many times we go through them! This gets better with packing cubes and ziplock where you can categorise your dresses, pants, tops and even between dirty and clean! Another worthy investment would be an Electronic Accessories Organizer to keep cables, wires stored away neatly!
3. Travel Size Toiletries
Always ask for samples wherever you go! Accept as many as they’ll give you! Or, there’s always travel-sized products you can buy! Packing nice little sachets of products are neat and slim as compared to chunky bottles of all shapes and sizes!
4. Universal Plug Adapters & Extension Plugs
There are 15 types of plugs in use around the world today, be sure to find out which one the country you’re visiting uses! Here’s where a universal plug adaptor will always have you covered! Bringing travel size extension plugs with multi USB ports is highly recommended so that you can get all your gadgets going simultaneously with just one single adapter!
5. Bees Wax
You’ll thank the bees when you find out how much you need them beeswax. You can cot them on almost anything, your backpack, your shoes, your jacket, whatever needs waterproofing, and you’re set for any storm! What a hack!
6. Health Kit
From band-aids, pain killers, cold and diarrhoea medicine, ointments, antibiotics to cotton wools, you can be sure to survive an adventure war – the ones looking like careless scraps and cuts, food poisoning, bed bugs bites, fevers and colds.
7. Meeting new friends
It’s done in just a click! There are so many apps out there that make it so easy to find the perfect travel buddy for your trip. You can search based on personalities, interests, location and itineraries. Or if you’re up for a local experience, you can try couch surfing at a friendly local’s own home! You get to make new friends and experience a day or two in the life of a real local – like visiting his favourite little corner in town or trying his grandmother’s signature dish! How about that?
