Nobody loves that “I wish I had packed…” feeling especially when you are far away from home during a trip. This means that you have to spend more money than what you had budgeted on buying it. Here are some of the things you will wish you had packed for that trip.
1.Reusable Water Bottle
Most people think it is not ‘fashionable; to carry tap water from home for drinking during the trip. They think it is better if they bought in shops while travelling. When the time to buy comes and they get that water is more expensive than they thought, that’s when they regret why they hadn’t carried water from home. Better still, if you cant carry water, at least carry an empty water bottle, you can fill it up when you get free tap water somewhere.
2. Space Blanket/Shuka
If you are going on a trip and you might stay there for a day or two or more, then carrying a blanket can help you a lot. The weather may change suddenly and your jacket cant really sorts you out. You can carry this lightweight blankets or even a Maasai shuka, they will play a big role in shielding you against the biting cold of the night.
3. Reusable Bags
Reusable bags help you not to incur extra costs when you buy stuff from a shop, supermarket or anybody selling something you want. You will realize that continually buying reusable bags during your trip will create a small dent in your budget.
4. Travel Pillow
You’ll be so happy that you carried a travel pillow, especially when you squeeze in that little extra sleep on the go. A travel pillow will provide extra comfort to help you sleep comfortably without hurting your neck or waking up very exhausted.
5. A Powerbank
You are not sure what time you will arrive at your destination for the next charge and your phone might not have just enough juice to last you the whole journey. This is where a power bank comes in. There are many good and long-lasting power banks which can charge your phone twice and that can be the push you needed to complete your journey/trip.
Of course, stuff like earphones, a charger, a good camera or a phone with a good camera are not something one should ever forget.
