What to take on a trip
Each trip can become stressful before it starts. And in order to avoid this, you should think ahead of time what to take with you and start the training camp.
To start, a few words about the list. Do not compile it the day before the trip. Personally, I make a list of things on a trip for a week, and then supplement it. But what things to take with you on a trip if the list is not compiled? I will talk about this later in order of priority.
One of the most necessary things, of course, is documents. To travel around the country, only an internal passport or other identification card is required.
To travel abroad – passport. Just in case – an internal passport and a photocopy of its main page. You will also need:
hotel or apartment reservations;
printed transport tickets.
Both inside the country and beyond its territory, cash and bank cards are needed. Warn your bank about your upcoming trip. Usually, you should ask your country of visit, dates of travel and the desire to set a limit on withdrawals.
Do not forget to change the hryvnia to dollars or euros. It is more convenient to pay with them, and they will change the local currency without problems.
If you plan to drive a car, grab an international driver’s license, rights. Need documents for a car, Green Card (compulsory insurance policy), technical passport and inspection ticket.
Bring a phrasebook with you or download it with the app to your smartphone. Also, it will not be superfluous to download offline maps.
Once I didn’t charge the phone and in the afternoon I was left alone with a black extinct display. Nowadays, without devices, indeed, as without hands. Therefore, technology is what you need to take with you on a trip.
When you bring your phone, laptop or tablet with you, be sure to grab all the chargers. Personally, I recommend getting an autonomous recharge source under the name Power Bank. For example, a power bank with a capacity of 20,000 mAh will help charge your phone about 5 times without sockets.
The list of things on a trip can be supplemented by a camera, headphones, a selfie stick, a universal adapter for sockets, a navigator, a flash drive
First aid kit
Just in case, you should always have at your fingertips an “ambulance kit” and vials for all occasions.
What funds must be taken:
from gastrointestinal upsets;
for protection against insects and the sun;
It is also worth grabbing a bandage, a little cotton or sponge, bactericidal plasters, hydrogen peroxide, drops for the eyes and nose, activated acne or other absorbents.
Personal hygiene products
These primarily include a toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, comb, tweezers and wet wipes. It is also worth taking cotton buds and discs, a towel, sanitary napkins or tampons, a razor and sanitary lipstick.
The list of things on the road can get:
scissors and a nail file;
glasses or contact lenses with a spare solution container;
washcloth, gel, shampoo, soap and hair styling products.
Colorless varnish and acetone will help you not only keep your nails well-groomed, but also save tights and wipe stains.
Clothing and shoes on a trip
I was convinced more than once by personal experience: if you take 100500 things, you’ll put on a few. Therefore, carefully think over the wardrobe. Plus, look at the weather during the trip in the city where you are going.
Wear the most comfortable clothes on the road, in which upon arrival you can go to the beach, excursion or to the store from the hotel. Replaceable underwear, socks and a few pairs of shoes will definitely come in handy.
From clothes: even in the warm season, take one jacket in reserve. For the rest, try to highlight no more than a few things for “every day” and a few grand weekend.
But the sea do not forget about a swimsuit and a headdress. On a business trip, at least one business suit. Sneakers or comfortable boots / sandals are required on a bus tour. And don’t forget your home clothes / pajamas, slippers or slippers.
And now a little about how to shove everything.
How am i doing I put some things in a standard square, and some I twist into tubes. So they can be pushed on the sides.
I pack small things in a plastic bag, and then I put them in sneakers or shoes. I twist the linen into sweaters or T-shirts. I pack it so that one thing goes into the groove of the other, and not just lies on top.
