More than 80% of American adults plan or planned to travel this summer. Do you still have a summer vacation in your future?
Traveling is exciting, but everyone knows that packing is a real headache. You don’t want to over-pack, but you also can’t afford to forget anything that would make your trip better.
We’re here to talk about a few travel essentials that you should bring with you on your trip. Read on to learn more.
It’s never been easier to capture your travel experiences in photos and videos. Make sure you bring a reliable camera with you on your journey.
If you’ve never wanted to become a photographer, you likely just have the camera on your phone. As long as it’s high-quality, this is enough for the average trip. It’s also convenient.
If you want to take higher-quality travel photos, however (especially if you’re going to be out in nature), why not get some better photography gear?
Invest in a nice camera, a strong camera strap, at least one nice lens, and a camera bag from a site like Rep The Wild. If you’re trying to do wildlife photography, we also recommend a lens that allows you to see things long-distance so you don’t spook any animals by getting too close!
A Good Travel Bag
Too many people think that they’re only going to need a bag to transport their clothes and supplies to their destination. Whether you’re flying or driving, you should also make room for a reliable travel bag that you can take with you on the go.
For trips out in the wilderness, your carry-on bag will likely suffice. We recommend using a backpack instead of a duffel so you can keep it with you easily.
A large tote bag or purse is helpful if you’re traveling in a city. Small backpacks are also convenient, but if you’re flying you may have to put them in your carry-on or checked luggage unless you don’t need a lot of space in your “personal item” bag.
A Travel Toiletries Kit
This is helpful whether you’re traveling by car or by plane. Even if you have room in a checked bag for full-sized toiletries, it’s far more convenient to bring the small ones.
Most hotel rooms will have toiletries available, but they won’t often have things like toothpaste or contact solution.
You can get a few small refillable bottles at your local big-box store and put them in a plastic bag, but we recommend getting a carrying case specifically for toiletries. They even come with travel-sized items so you don’t have to pack your own.
A Good Refillable Water Bottle
When you’re on the go, you don’t want to have to buy water. Water might not even be easily accessible. A refillable water bottle that fits in your travel bag is a must-have.
We recommend one that’s insulated so your water can stay cool all day long.
Remember, if you’re flying, make sure the water bottle is empty when you go through security. There isn’t always a place to dump liquids in smaller airports and you won’t be allowed through with a full bottle.
Don’t Forget Your Travel Essentials!
These travel essentials will make your trip less stressful and more fun. Remember: you need a bag, a camera, a refillable water bottle, and a toiletry kit. It’s time to start packing!
