Travel Tips

When you are traveling, anything can happen – but becoming such as a scout will allow you to avoid almost anything that may derail your journey. Be capable for something by bringing along with you a safety kit on your next trip. The following are a few of the essentials you should pack for safe travel.First-aid kit

Tote a travel version of your kit at home, so you can still administer first-aid while in transit. Before you head to your destination, get these essentials from a drugstore: bandages, wound wash, cotton, aspirin, painkillers, motion-sickness medicine, and a thermometer.

Alcohol and hand sanitizer

Wherever you may be, cleanliness is a must. When you have no access to running water and soap, you only have to open your bag and bring out your bottle of instant germ-busters, especially important before meals.

Sunblock

Protect yourself from the sun’s harsh rays with sunblock (or sunscreen), especially if you plan to spend a day at the beach. Spread the sunscreen on the exposed areas of your skin, and reapply it every two hours and after getting wet.

Flashlight

When the lights unexpectedly go out, you won’t be afraid of the dark. A flashlight also comes in handy when you’re looking for lost objects. Choose one in a small size, and then tie it to a lanyard that you can easily wear. Bring extra batteries, too.

Insect repellent

Don’t let the bugs “bug” you when you’re traveling, especially when you’re resting from a long day of sightseeing. Stay safe from diseases like dengue and nasty bites by spreading some insect-repellent lotion all over the exposed areas of your body.

Bandana

This single piece of cloth has multiple uses: mouth mask, bandage, pouch, scarf, hanky, headband, and more; your imagination is the limit. Always have a bandana in your pocket – or around your neck or hair – because you’ll never know when you might need it.
