Phone charger, Headphones, Extra USB cable, and Power Bank
In this techno-friendly generation, we can not forget to carry our Mobile Phone Charger, Headphones, Extra USB Cable, and Power Bank.
We don’t even step out of our house without our headphones and power bank. We need our headphones with us in our journey, to listen to music to talk to anyone on the phone, etc.
The headphones which I use are the IBall Pulse and love them:
Hair Shampoo, Body Wash, Face Wash, Paper Soap, Toothpaste, Toothbrush
The basic needs of travellers cannot be changed. Whenever we travel we need to carry our own body wash, face wash, paper soap, toothpaste, toothbrush. The main reason behind this is everyone has there own choice.
The shampoo that suits your hair, body and face wash that is compatible with your skin, etc. Make sure you pack each and everything in a different carry bag so that if there is any leak everything doesn’t get messed up.
Also, add sunscreen and moisturizer creams in the list.
Towel, Napkin, Tissue, Wet wipes, Sanitizer
Many people stay clean and hygienic, that it is their priority. And of course, it is a good habit. Always have a sanitizer, tissues and wet wipes in your bag. While travelling I make sure I carry my own towel and napkin. We get a towel in a hotel as well, but it’s your personal choice to use that or your own.
Inner Garments And A Pair of Socks
Always pack your inner garments and an extra pair of socks in a different pouch or bag. It is easy to find and you don’t need to dig your whole bag when you need them.
Keep your Jacket before you leave
Travellers are advised to carry your jacket during the journey. Nights turn to be cold, so carry your jacket to be on a safer side.
The leather jacket which I carry with me whenever I travel to keep my self protect is below one, and it is one of my favorite ones.
Also, Carry A Lock With You
If you feel unsafe, good to use your own lock for your rooms. Always lock your bags when you are on a trip.
Carry First Aid Kit
The most important travel tip I would say to carry your First Aid Kit. Things you need to have in it is a painkiller, medicine on fever and cold, whichever suits you. Bandage, small scissors, mosquito repellent cream, soframycin, and if you have any dental issue have the pain killer for the same.
Carry Water Bottle & Some Snacks
To keep your self hydrated and full always have your water bottle and some snacks with you.
Keep The Local SIM Card Of The Country Which You Are Travelling
When you are travelling to a different country make sure you keep the SIM card of the same country. This makes the connectivity and communication easy. TSIM is the best option to get this.
Always Have Small Backpack/Suitcase
To keep your luggage handy its good to have a compact bag or suitcase. It makes your trip easy to travel.
The backpack which I carry when I go on a trip for 3-4 days, I carry my wildcraft bag of 45 ltrs.
Roll Your Clothes For More Space
Travel tips for packing the bag. To save the space in your bags the best way to pack your clothes is by rolling them. This will give you space to keep other stuff in your bag.
Pill Containers Are Great Organizers For Jewelry
Especially for the girls like us, to reduce the messed up ornaments, its good to differentiate them and then keep it.
I use one easy way to keep my earings, that is in a pill container. That keeps everything sorted and simple. I also use small zip pouches for long earrings. Travel tips for keeping ornaments and accessories especially for women wanderer.
Email Yourself A Scanned Copy Of Your Passport
Travellers are highly recommended to have a scanned copy of your passport on your email. This would be one more important travel tip I would say for all of us. We may not always carry our passport when we move out of our room and we never know when we would need it.
To be on a safer side have the scanned copy of passport and important document on email.
Photo Copy Of Your Travel Tickets, Hotel Booking
In this techno-friendly generation, we always have a photo or soft copy of our tickets and bookings.
But be prepared for the worst, you may misplace your phone, or the battery may get drained of your phone or anything may happen. So, its always good to have a print of the bookings we made.
Download Google Map
Many times it happens that we love to go to some adventure place, some places which are close to nature and away from city places.
In such places, we face network issues. Travellers can’t stop, and they shouldn’t, so good to download the google map before you leave.
Pre-book Your Window Seat In Flight
I love to have a window seat in the flight. So now the airlines have given us an opportunity to do web check-in and pre-book our seats in the flight. Travel tips for travellers who love to see a beautiful view when you are flying.
I personally love it and enjoy it. I also capture pictures when I am in my window seat.
This capture was when I travelled from Pune to Ladakh
Pre-book The Tickets Well In Advance
To the budget travellers, or rather all the travel lovers it would be budget-friendly and a sorted trip if you book your tickets well in advance.
Especially for me, it is like I get confused about the destinations. To stop my surfing about the different destination and to get tickets at the best price I pre-book them. I find the cheap flight tickets on the below link always, you can also check the same.
Ask About The Local Sightseen To The Local People In The Same Place
This is one of the best ways to know about the hidden, beautiful, unseen places at the location.
The local people in the town are your best travel guide I would say. I really have a good experience in my every journey.
Never miss the sunset and sunrise at special places.
Check The Hotels Before You Visit The Place
Shortlist the hotels according to your requirement before you reach your destination. Usually, I don’t pre-book my hotels. I check the hotel personally and then only go for booking.
In my upcoming trip, I am going to try Airbnb. Will share the review with my readers.
Always Try Local Food
Every place has its own unique taste of food. Always make sure you check out the local food and eat it for sure when you visit the place.
This delicious food I had tried when I had a visit to Dharamshala.
Personally talking about me, I am a foodie person. So, I make sure before visiting the place I shortlist the food to eat at that particular place.
Off course, after getting some assistance from local people we usually add some more dishes. In this way, I have tried so many new Dishes at different locations and loved them.
Believe me, food is the best way to get to know a place better.
Do Carry Good And Comfortable Shoes
Travel tip for the travellers who love to explore places by walk, who love to go on a trek. Any sort of pain or injury should not be the obstacle in our trip. So make sure you wear comfortable footwear.
I personally prefer sketchers sports shoes, which really have great comfort, I just love it. I do know we girls love to click pictures with perfect matching footwear, I click them and get back into my sports shoes.
Don’t Over Plan Your Trip
To avoid disappointment in your trip I would suggest do not over plan your trip. I am not being negative about anything, but you never know, anything may happen, and you should not get disappointed due to that.
Take Earplugs And Eyemask
Make sure you add the earplugs and eyemask in your travel tips. In the overnight journey when you travel you never know how many people will come to distract you from your sleep.
In the train, the sellers come. Nearby your hotel the street noise from outside, loud bars and in the dorm rooms snorers are always present.
The sunlight pinches your eye when you travel in the day time, so it becomes difficult to sleep in the day journey. It’s better you carry your eyemask and enjoy your journey.
Keep A Pair Of Sunglasses With You
To protect your eyes from dust and sunlight its good to carry your sunglasses with you when you are travelling.
Carry A Cap
Take More Photos
Photos of the beautiful place you visit are must for the travellers. When you leave the place you just leave your footprints. All that you carry is memories and pictures. Capture the picture of places as well as your self with a beautiful location.
The best photo collection I would say I have of Lansdowne, Uttarakhand
Make Sure You Buy Souvenirs When You Visit A New Place
Always take away something memorable with you when you travel to a new place. Souvenirs are something which I like to collect and take away from the places I visit. Looking at them I really feel good and also reminds me many places are still left.
I have shared the Travel tips and tricks from my travel experience. There are many more travel tips and tricks, the list goes on and on.
I would love to listen from my readers about their travel experience and the tips and tricks they follow.
Still the summers are going on, monsoon has not yet arrived, especially in Delhi. To the people who wish to move out of the metro city life and go on a vacation for 2-3 days, I would suggest two places which I have visited and loved them.
If You Never Go, You Will Never Know!!
Ladakh is a place in which everyone falls in love. I was just thrilled and it was an overwhelming experience of mine.
