Here are 5 things to ALWAYS pack in your carry on or suitcase for any trip!
We all have our favorite traveling outfit, traveling music list, and a good book to read. But the following 5 items are things to always pack! Don’t forget them!
You never know when you might need one. Reading on the plane, reading a map, or finding your way around your hotel room so you don’t wake someone up. If the electricity goes out in the place you are staying–you will be glad you have a flashlight. Don’t forget to check the batteries!
You never know when you might be cold or wet, or both!!
First aid kit
Empty water bottle
Water is a necessity to life, but it shouldn’t have to be necessary to spend several dollars at a restaurant or store to wet your whistle. Many restaurants in European cities charge for water. Bring your own and save a lot of money.
Extra copies of your papers
It’s a great idea to have copies of your passport, visa, birth certificate, and driver’s license/ID. Just in case you lose them. It can be tricky to recover these documents in a foreign country. Copies will make your life easier. Don’t pack them in the same place as the originals.
