The top 5 essential things you can't travel without

If you are travelling, make sure to tick off these 5 essential things from your checklist. They are the top things you can’t travel without!

Making a checklist before going for a trip is the best way to keep yourself assured that you haven’t forgotten anything. Even if you are not planning to pack lots of clothes, shoes, toiletries, or other necessities, it is still good to check twice before leaving for a holiday.

Certainly, every holiday and destination might require different attire.

Still, there are a few essential things nobody should forget when traveling.

For instance, if you forget your passport and national ID, you probably won’t be able to go anywhere. Or at least not abroad. But instead of talking about these must-haves when traveling, let’s have a look at the top 5 essential things used by everyone when traveling that you shouldn’t forget.

1. Sunscreen

It might sound a bit silly, but sunscreen should be at the top of your list when traveling. Especially if you are travelling to Greece. The temperatures in summer can get really high, so if you are planning a cruise holiday with Baba Sails, make sure to bring sunscreen for protection. But in general, when we travel, we often go for long walks to explore a new city and area, so it is essential to keep yourself protected from the sun.

2. Scarf

Just like in Greece, in many countries, temperatures can get very low during the nighttime. So, even if you are planning a trip to a warm country, it is wise to have a scarf if the summer breeze suddenly gets cold. Furthermore, if you plan to visit a religious site, you might get asked to cover yourself. So, a scarf will be perfect since it can be light enough for summer temperatures.

3. Good shoes

Wherever you are traveling, even to the beach, always take good shoes with you. After all, you never know what you might encounter at your destination. For instance, you might want to explore a rocky beach or go for a spontaneous hike in the mountains. Furthermore, you will undoubtedly walk for hours touring around a new city. So, it’s essential to have good walking shoes.

4. First Aid Kit

Accidents are always part of life. Even if they are as small as getting cut by paper, they still give us wounds. So, it is essential to have a small first aid kit with bandages of different sizes, antibiotic cream, hand wipes, insecticide wipes, rubber gloves, and medications for various purposes.

5. Portable phone charger

Phones, in general, have become a massive part of our lives. While traveling, they are essential for contacting our friends, families, or emergency use and for taking countless photos, videos and posting our adventures on social media. Naturally, while traveling, the phone’s battery will get exhausted, so be sure to bring with you a portable phone charger.
