Travelling can be hectic, even for a frequent traveller like myself. Preparing your luggage is something that usually takes a while but once it’s done you can finally relax and get ready to enjoy your holiday. Making a list before you start packing can be a great way to work through what you need to take with you, here are some suggestions which you may need to take on holiday with you.
Medications are crucial when you’re travelling, especially when you’re heading off abroad. If you need any medications which you’ve forgotten it can be a task to be able to get them whilst you’re on holiday, dependent on the country you are in, it may be almost impossible.
As well as medications, you need to plan for any equipment you may need to take abroad too. For those who need to travel with oxygen it’s worth finding out if there any restrictions before heading off on your holidays. The Oxygen Store provides a variety of rental oxygen so you can use this when you go on holiday.
Although some people prefer to buy their suncream on holiday, I much prefer to purchase a bottle whilst I’m in the UK, when you get off the plane and want to just straight into the pool, the last thing you want to be doing is looking to buy a bottle of sunscreen.
An interesting book:
This is pretty much a given for anyone heading off abroad, a good book or two. Sitting in a sun lounger by the sea is an amazing way to relax on holiday, a way to further relax is to grab an interesting read and get stuck in. I also like reading whilst travelling and also whilst sitting at the airport as it can get pretty boring when you’re waiting around.
I love trying to learn a little of the language before I visit a country, even if it’s just the basics such as manners and a few greetings. However, I do take my own phrasebook for times when I need to speak the language and don’t know how to answer people. You never know when it might come in handy.
Anyone else ever on holiday, gone to go and charge an electrical device before remembering that different countries require an adaptor. Having your own at hand can be such a relief as it saves having to try to find one whilst you’re on holiday, which trust me, is a tricky task.
Thanks for reading and if you can think of any holiday essentials I’ve left off the list, feel free to comment them below.
