10 Indispensable Things With You On HolidayWhen going on holidays I always plan everything and then end up forgetting something useful by the time I head away. Here is my list of things to take with you on holiday:
1. First Aid Kit - you never know what's going to happen to you when you are away, so it's best to be prepared. By bringing a basic first aid kit you will have these items when needed. I find plasters come in very handy, as you tend to walk a lot and get blisters on you feet on holidays.2. Sunscreen - even if you are going to somewhere that is not very sunny you can never be too sure what the weather will be like. If you are going to be on a beach holiday or somewhere with strong sun you are advised to buy a high factor of sunscreen to stop yourself from burning. Even if you are on the ski slopes you have to protect yourself from burning.
3. Aftersun - this is needed if you are going to be somewhere warm and sunny. Even if you have sunscreen on your skin you can get burnt and dry skin. Aftersun and moisturisers will help put the moisture back into your skin and make it healthier. It also can cool down any sunburn you may have.4. Insect repellent - if you are going to a country which has mosquitoes this spray or lotion will be the answer to all your prayers. I have been bitten by mozzies before and it is not a nice experience you get big welts that itch for days. So it is best to protect yourself. I used an insect repellent spray and it meant that I didn't need to touch the liquid and it was handy to put it on and I knew I hadn't missed anywhere. This stuff is very effective but you can get the odd bite while wearing it if it is rubbed off. The only big downside to this spray is that it stinks so if you can get one that doesn't smell too bad it will be all the better for you.
5. Sunglasses - these are needed in the sunny weather to protect your eyes. You are best to get ones that filter out the UV light. I wear glasses sometimes and found that reaction lenses are very useful. They turn darker depending on the sun. The only problem I have with these is that they turn into sunglasses with a dark tint very quickly but once you come back into the shade it takes a while for the tint to go away. This was a problem for me as I kept bumping into things as it was too dark. It did mean I had fewer things to carry as I didn't need to bring a pair of sunglasses. Also it saved the hassle of having to change between sunglasses and ordinary glasses.6. A light breathable coat - I found this extremely useful on my travels as sometimes it can be very warm but can rain very heavy so I was kept dry. My coat was able to be folded up so it was a tiny size to fit into a backpack, which was good as it took up little space. I am glad I had a breathable coat as it can be sometimes very warm and it helped stop me from sweating. The coat was very versatile as it kept me warm then when it got cold.
7. Travel toothbrush - this is a toothbrush which is half the size of a normal toothbrush and has a cover over it.
