I am writing this article partly to help other lost souls out there, but also to give myself a hand when I get around to packing for my 6 month trip.
1. Chargers for electricals
In this day and age, I’m assuming most of you will remember these vital bands of electrical life. However, some of you older people may not realize the importance of these annoying wires.
remember to bring them, it’s not worth having to buy duplicates.
2. Toothbrush and floss
Yes, you can buy them upon arrival. But not brushing your teeth for 24 hours on that sweaty plane ride does seem a bit manky. You wouldn’t go this long without brushing your teeth at home.
3. Dental brace
For those of us who weren’t born with perfect pearly-whites.
Bring your monthly pills or whatever you are currently taking to fix up your body.
Sunscreen is expensive. And guess what? Most of those places where you really need sunscreen (Asia, Africa, South America) are inhabited by people who DON’T need it. Prices will rise in order for your money to be milked like the albino-cows you are.
6.Copies of your passport and documents
If you are ever in a bit of a political or legally-troublesome pickle, then these will come in handy.
The more passports you have, the cooler you are.
7. Photos of your belongings
Take pics of what your suitcase looks like, your expensive possessions, and basically anything else that you would like to be handed back were it to get lost. Pictures are basically pieces of proof and negoitating with foreign police or airport-staff will be a lot easier with it.
8. A memory of your passwords
When you are used to the luxury of your own private computer and auto-memorized passwords, you can go months without having to type them in. Before leaving, make sure you know the different passwords to your accounts. This will save you a lot of time, hassle and money when using a public computer.
9. Your Razor
Vital for anyone Italian or men over the age of *whenever puberty hit*.
10. A big old schmile
Oh I am such a charmer.
hehe. Jokes aside, positivity will only enlighten your travel experience.
Are there any other often-forgotten things I have forgotten? Please tell me!
