What to carry on trips? Essential things to pack for a trip?
Since carrying luggage is most annoying task of a traveller, it would be great to have a list on what t carry on trips, in store for yourself. It would be insanely difficult to pack when you suddenly make plans or when you don’t have time to pack. That when this list will help you out! I am sharing what I take for tips and hope you could use this essentials on what to carry on trips!
Start from here, What to carry on Trips!
1. Pack Mostly Basics & a Few Statement Pieces
Always, i mean always stick to basics, majorly around 70% you should pack the basics. That would be the most weighted things in your suitcase or maybe you won’t be able to wear that on the trip and that would go useless. So, stick to basics. Just a jeans, a black T-shirt, shorts, a warm sweater and track pants combining them together you will be able to match them to any place , weather and occasion.
For example, wearing a plain black or white tank top with some dark jeans or shorts can be perfect for physical activities like hiking, biking, or just exploring a city by foot. Just play with these basics items as where a tank top under a black shirt, covered with scarf would look great.
2 . Comfortable Shoes
Choose according to location, take trekking shoes for mountains, sneakers for plain and flip flops for beaches. These are my favourite shoes and I get compliments every single time I wear them!
3. Medicine or First-aid Box
You never know when you will be needing some first aid kit. This is very important. Going on mountains? High altitude? Be aware of AMS acute mountain sickness. Take some electrolyte for mountains. Take some bandages if going for hiking.
4. Smartphone or Compact Camera – Capture the memories or moments
Ofcourse you need a camera or a smartphone to capture the moment right? But dont forget to live the moment!
5. Powerbank – Don’t run out of power
Phones are more dearer to people than humans to some. They are their heart and soul. So, this is also a secondary must. You just have to have this. Be prepared for no electricity.
Ofcourse if you don’t have a phone you won’t be requiring it!
6. Sunglasses – Save those eyes
Sunglasses are very helpful to block the sun rays and protect your precious eyes. You may get snowblind in abundance of snow from the reflecting sunrays from snow.
7. GPS or SmartWatch or Fitness Tracker – Track your Hike or Trek
If you a fitness fanatic then you should definetly take them and show off your fitness, you may get ones of those Fitbits and carry them on your hike or trek. I own a Fitbit Charge 2 and it provides every detail i require thank you technology!
8. Stay hydrated.
It’s important to stay hydrated when traveling, especially if you are on a plane. Drink at least one glass of water per hour to help you feel better and look more refreshed.
Limit your alcohol when traveling. Stick to one drink, such as a glass of wine.
Now How to look Stylish while Travelling!
1.Work with Layers
Layering is the key for dressing. A neck up black sweater will look good. Leather jackets with basic tees would look great. Checked shirts scarfs, caps etc.
2.Consider Your Destination
Obviously if you’re going to Leh-Ladahk you don’t want to pack shorts and a swimsuit. Similarly, if you visiting a warm place like a trip to Goa or Maldives these are not the place for winter clothing. I always joke that it’s easy for me to pack for a tropical destination — I just throw in a few t-shirts and 2 shorts.
It’s much more difficult to pack light for a cold weather destination, so this is where layering really comes in handy. Don’t forget scarves, gloves, a beanie, and warm socks.
Considering your destination while packing involves more than just packing for the geographical climate — it also means being aware of the cultural and political climate of your destination, too.
If you’re visiting Middle East or another location where culture clothing is strict then choose attire they says, never disrespect a religion and its beliefs. Research your location before you pack to get an idea of what other travellers have found works best.
3.Moisturize your skin.
No matter what climates you are coming from or traveling to, moisturizing your skin will help keep it healthy and looking great. Put lotion on your body as well as a moisturizer with an SPF on your face.
Slather hand cream over your hands while traveling. Use one with a scent you enjoy, as the familiarity will help you relax.
5. Wear heavy clothing and shoes on the plane
This means that wear jackets , overcoat ,big hoodies , suits and formal shoes try them to wear while travelling this will keep your luggage weight controlled !
Some of these items are total personal preference you are free to change them as per your convenience. I have been taking care of these in my plans and since then I have been able to pack for efficiently and quickly
