This is What You Should Pack Every Time you Travel

Bathing suits

This is a classic mistake many travellers make: they might be travelling in the Winter or going somewhere that doesn’t have a swimming pool and assume they won’t need bathing suits. Only to realize the weather is actually nicer than they expected or their friends know a great beach or lake nearby, so to avoid missing out on the fun, always bring one pair of swimsuits.

Flip flops

Flip flops are the most practical footwear item you can bring on a trip: you will need them to shower at the hotel (because who knows how clean those bathtubs really are?), they can be a comfortable option if you need a break from your cute fashionable shoes that left a blister on your foot, and they do not take up a lot of room in your bag.

A coat

Just like bathing suits, coats are not only useful in one single season. If you fold them, they can be used as a makeshift pillow or blanket on a plane or if your hotel doesn’t provide enough. But obviously, you can also just use it as a coat if the weather during your Summer vacation isn’t as warm as you expected.

First Aid Kit

When it comes to a first aid kit, a lot of people tend to bring only a couple of band-aids because they think it will be such a waste of room in their suitcase and they probably won’t need anything anyway. But think about it: you don’t want to be stuck in a foreign country with a throbbing migraine and have to figure out where is the nearest pharmacy, or even get to the pharmacy only to have to look for what could possibly be the equivalent to the medicine you usually take at home.
