When packing for a trip we usually focus way too much on cool outfits we think we’ll wear. Who else have had way too many trips for which they’ve packed at least one outfit for each day you’ll be away (sometimes more), PLUS a dress and shoes in case of a fancy occasion, PLUS something in case of rain or bad weather like a coat and a sweater, etc. Lots of people do this, right? In the end we have way too much stuff we definitely don’t need, too much clothes we’ll never get a chance to wear that we’re literally just dragging with us halfway across the world. And the worst thing is we forget to pack the essentials, the things that will actually come in handy. So let’s talk about 10 things you probably didn’t pack but definitely should pack when you travel.
We know you probably took money with you, everyone expects to spend money while they travel. But what we mean is that it’s good to be smart about money, because you never know what rules and conditions apply in which country. It’s best to have both credit and debit cards, because certain countries and certain shops don’t accept credit cards. Have both Visa and MasterCard for the same reasons. And it’s always a good idea to have some cash with you, because you never know when you’ll end up in the middle of nowhere in a shop that only accepts cash and there’s no ATM for miles.
