Essential things to pack for travelling

Hey all πŸ’™

I know some of us haven't had the chance to travel beyond our own borders due to some minor setbacks but initially, one day you'll want and need to at least travel internationally once in your lifetime. So why is travelling important and why do we need to travel? 

The purpose and reason of travelling for me mean being happy with a little bit of everything in life.  This is what travel means to me. For me to live fully, to accept others, to learn in every area you can and to allow the world to shape you into the best person you can truly be. Because to me, travel is far more valuable than money will ever be and life experiences can never be replaced in your lifetime. People may travel to learn something specific: a new language, a new cuisine, aspects of a different culture, or a deeper appreciation of faith or spirituality.

What type of travel reasons are there? 

Recreation, holidays, tourism or vacationing, research travel, the gathering of information, visiting people, volunteer travel for charity, migration to begin life somewhere else, religious pilgrimages and mission trips, business travel, trade, commuting, and other reasons.

But what should you prepare for since you've never travelled far before? Here are 5 simple travel tips for beginners like you to start, locally or internationally. 

1.  Research & Make a List

πŸ‘‰Always make sure that you are well-prepared for the place you are heading off to. If this is your first time out of the country, it might be worth considering one of the easier destinations. Try to start somewhere easy and safe for your trip. 
πŸ‘‰Find a country with the English language to avoid any language barrier if needed any assistance.
πŸ‘‰Make a list of the places you want to visit and what are the costs for transportations and dining in the area you'll be visiting. 
πŸ‘‰ Don't forget to check the rules and regulations of the airport you'll be heading to and the laws and customs in the country you'll be visiting to avoid any mishap in the future. 

2. Manage Your Money

πŸ‘‰As you've made of the lists you'll be visiting in #2. And sometimes you'll get the budget wrong but it's okay! As a backup plan, You'll want to consider bringing extra cash with you, just in case. Yes, you can use credit cards but not every place accepts credit cards as payment. 
πŸ‘‰ Make sure you are also prepared for your online banking for an easier transaction overseas. Increase your limits a bit just in case you needed that Gucci bag on sale 😁
πŸ‘‰ Keep your money safe.  Place them somewhere that is not visible to others. Bring a dummy bag to confuse thieves. 

3. Documents

Essential things to pack for travelling

πŸ‘‰ If you are travelling internationally, Passport and Visa are your life. You need to make sure that all these documents are valid and approved. Some places don't require Visa but just to be safe, you can check them online HERE 
πŸ‘‰ Always make sure to print a copy of the documents (passport, visa, flight tickets, hotels reservations and such) you have in another bag or you can email yourself a copy. On this account, if anything happens, you will have a backup document to bring to the police or embassy if needed. 

4. Gadgets

Essential things to pack for travelling

πŸ‘‰ Phones 

Simcard  πŸ ŠIf your phone can insert a dual sim card. It's best if you could find a local sim card to use for data instead of your expensive roaming data plan. Am I right? There are cheaper options for high-speed data for you to use, so make a little research on this. 
Mobile Apps 🠊Download Apps like Google Maps and Google Translate (Offline Mode) for easier communication and manoeuvres later on. You can download Whatsapp/ Wechat/ Kik/ Telegram to keep in touch with your loved ones. 
➤ Cloud data backup πŸ Š You can keep all your photos back up to cloud data, so if anything happens to your phone/camera. You'll still have those memories you've captured on your trip. 
Lock your phone🠊Your phone is probably the most valuable thing you have on you. Phones are easily replaced but Personal data theft is way worse. How many banking apps and websites do you have that automatically log you in? Therefore, remember to lock your phone. The swipey geometry designs may seem excellent, but after you use them a few times, the screen will be smudged in the exact shape of your passcode. Hence, Numbers and biometrics are safer.
➤ Other gadgets you might want to bring is Noise-cancelling headphones, Universal Adapter and power banks. 

5. Pack Smart

πŸ‘‰ Bags 

➤ Choose a bag that's suitable for your travelling. Considering the way of your journey and place of accommodation. 
A backpack is much suited for single, carefree travellers while luggage is most likely for business or family travellers. 
And just for precaution, bring a foldable duffle bag. You might need them later. 

πŸ‘‰ Apparels 

➤ Travel light. Make sure you don't overpack.  Considering your clothes and try to wear clothes more than once to save space. Remember less is Better.
 Try to pack your clothes neatly to save space.  Put your socks in your shoes. Fold your clothes with your pants. You can search on Youtube tutorials on how to fold your clothes for travel. 
➤ When needed, you can always find a self-service dobby to clean your clothes later. 

πŸ‘‰ Essentials 

➤ Don't forget to bring your portable chargers/adaptors with multiple ports to charge all your electrical devices. 
➤Travelling light doesn't mean you can't bring your favourite cleanser or perfume. Simply b
uy additional small bottles to transfer and bring compact travel-size toiletries to save space. Easy right? That way you'll comply with the airport international rules for liquids. 
➤ Taking care of your health is also important while travelling. Hence don't forget to bring some emergency kits and your additional supplements. 

As a traveller myself, I will definitely NOT forget to bring my supplements to keep me healthy, energized and protected. For that reason, I've chosen AFYAA Hayyiba as my accompaniment to great health!
