Sim­ple Tips for Your Travel Jour­ney

Maxx-M - - TRAVEL TIPS -

Wher­ever your des­ti­na­tion, there are sev­eral things that you should take to make your jour­ney eas­ier and more com­fort­able. Here are small things that can make your hol­i­day more en­joy­able:

Al­ways pack a hat

In the win­ter, a knit­ted hat will keep you warm and take up lit­tle space. In the sum­mer, a brimmed hat will keep the sun off your face. In ei­ther case, it will save you when your iron doesn’t work in the trape­zoidal elec­tri­cal socket you found in your ho­tel room, so no more bad-hair days.

Al­ways Carry Some Wet Tis­sues

Re­strooms can run out of toi­let paper some­times, so this is where these tis­sues came in handy. You may also need a tis­sue to clean your hands be­fore eat­ing, clean sweat from your face, or dry a wet sur­face.

Sun­glasses to the res­cue

On a bright sunny day, sun­glasses will help to pro­tect your eyes and re­duce glare. While in­doors such as in a plane, train or bus, you can use sun­glasses to help you get a good sleep and avoid eye contact with other pas­sen­gers. Sun­glasses can also cover any skin blem­ishes, if you have them, near your eyes.

Bring a Pash­mina

If you are a woman, al­ways bring a nice-look­ing pash­mina with you. This cash­mere wool can keep you warm on the plane, and you also can also use it to pro­tect your head or shoul­ders on a sunny day.You can use it as a skirt if you are about to en­ter a sa­cred area at a tourist spot, or you may use it to cover up for a more for­mal, elegant look. This ver­sa­tile fash­ion item is es­sen­tial ev­ery­where.

Take Copies of your Doc­u­ments

Al­ways have copies of your im­por­tant doc­u­ments, such as pass­port, ID card, visa, etc. And make sure to keep them in a dif­fer­ent place from the orig­i­nal. If you lose one, you will still have a back-up for iden­ti­fi­ca­tion. It is also a good idea to store your doc­u­ments on­line, such as your pri­vate email or Drop­box, which you can ac­cess from any­where. Re­mem­ber if you plan to visit for­eign coun­tries it is al­ways good to be well pre­pared.

Powerbank for your Gad­gets

Our smart­phones are like our best friend nowa­days. They can store im­por­tant doc­u­ments, such as maps, travel guid­ance, ad­dresses, contact per­sons, emer­gency num­bers, and other im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion. Make sure you have a powerbank and keep it charged so it will func­tion when needed; a uni­ver­sal powerbank for your smart­phone and cam­era is ideal.
