Your mask should be a part of your apparel. Never leave your home without wearing a mask. Keep your bag filled with spare masks that will be sufficient for your entire journey. 

#3 Buy A Thermometer

Stay ahead of everything with a temperature checker. Even though tourist destinations are taking all the required measures for temperature checks, keeping one handy will let you stay aware of your health condition. 

#4 Hand Gloves Before Hand Shakes

These backpacking tips will ensure that you have a memorable and safe journey. COVID-19 might have put your international travel plans on pause, but if you just take the right precautionary measures, fun and adventure can still be found.
