Escaping the monotony of everyday life and travel is quite a hobby for the majority out there. From experiencing the thrills of a trek to being one with nature while camping, from shopping in the crowded streets of Japan to getting a great tan on the beaches of Hawaii, traveling is an escape from boredom like none other. It doesn’t matter if the trip is solo or with a group, preplanned or spontaneous, it will never cease to be memorable for those involved. But to make sure that the memories are full of thrill and excitement, and not irritation and blunder, packing the right things for a trip becomes quite important because you never know when they come in handy. The following is a list of top 5 things you should absolutely never forget while going on a trip, so when the next trip comes knocking at your door, you know what you need to fit into that backpack of yours.
- First Aid Kit
Sounds a bit paranoid for a two-day trip to a lake or a beach, but first aid kits are a must for any kind of trip you venture on. It doesn’t have to be a danger-filled adventure, a small road trip can even lead to severe accidents or infections, and nobody likes to spend a trip bedridden at the hotel. Basic first aid kits consisting of a small box of bandages, cotton, antibiotics, painkillers like ibuprofen, doctor’s tape, cold syrups, rash cream, and pain relief gel for backaches or sprains, are something that must be with you at all times during a trip. These kits will also include the subscription medicines and allergy tablets, taken by the person regularly.
- Raincoats/ Umbrellas
Even with highly established meteorological departments, and regular news or online updates of the weather, the unpredictability of weather should be realized early, and your backpacks must contain raincoats or umbrellas. Getting wet, out in a heavy pour during a picnic, may seem romantic or can even be claimed as a fun experience, but when you are out enjoying the sunlight or are stuck in a market, rains can do more damage than good. Having a raincoat handy, on even the sunniest of days is a good practice; umbrellas work too but raincoats are preferable, considering that handling an umbrella is much more of a hassle with the bags you have brought with you. In addition to this, having a waterproof cover for your backpack is also a smart choice.
- Power Banks
Unless you are planning to take a trip specifically in radio silence, you need power banks to keep your phone’s battery alive as long as possible. Not only to stay active on social media, but mobile phones with considerable battery are quite important in case of emergencies as well. The day gets ruined for most when people’s phone’s battery dies, therefore a charged power bank in the backpack will never be a bad idea, also considering the minimal space it occupies.Best power banks to buy right now

- Hand Sanitizers
Your hands get dirty fast and no matter where you go, you won’t have an easier, ready to use product to keep your hands clean enough for the intake of food. You need clean hands to avoid catching any kind of infections, since you don’t want to be sick on your trip! Besides, you will not be able to get water and soap everywhere, therefore, at least you need a hand sanitizer to keep your hands germ-free.
- Water Bottle
Water is a fairly important requirement of the day and you will come across clean water at almost any place you visit, but you shouldn’t be so sure of that. A small water bottle, regularly filled with clean drinking water is necessary. It is quite useful in emergency situations and as an insurance when visiting places where you just cannot find bottled water so easily. Even if your trip isn’t to some mountain or a forest, having drinking water with you while you go out to shop or explore a city is recommended.
Overloading your backpacks with unnecessary things is quite a paranoid practice that does no good while traveling. Traveling is healthy for a person, it is not only about an escape, but also about replenishing the lost energy and excitement. So the next time you set off for a journey, make sure you don’t forget to carry the aforementioned top 5 things!
