In this article, we’ll be exploring 5 items you never want to forget on your next abroad trip. We’ll take a look at the things that are key in ensuring the following: a comfortable journey, something different to explore each day and still feel like you’re back in your own home base, need appropriate hydration for cultural norms and high altitudes, and some safety precautions- sometimes we don’t get to control where we end up!
1. A good, sturdy pair of walking shoes
You will do a LOT of walking while sightseeing, and you want to make sure your feet are comfortable. Blisters are no fun!
2. A light jacket or sweater
The weather can be unpredictable, even in the summer. It’s always better to have something you can throw on if it gets chilly.
3. A scarf
A scarf is not only a fashionable accessory, but it can also double as a blanket on a cold plane or train.
4. A hat
A hat will protect you from the sun and keep your head warm in cooler weather.
Sunglasses are a must for any trip, but especially if you’ll be spending time outdoors.
