With summer right around the corner, planning a summer vacation with loved ones offers a ray of hope to many. But at the same time, packing for the vacation is a big challenge. Someone has truly said, packing a proper vacation bag is a skill that takes time to perfect.
Regardless of what you are packing, a backpack for a trek, a tote bag for a beach side holiday or a wheeled bag for a longer stay near a valley side, it’s what inside that counts. So we have tried to make the packing chore a little less tiresome for you and devised a quick packing list, highlighting top 5 things that you need to carry for your vacation this summer.
Top 5 Things To Carry For Your Vacation This Summer
Skincare Essentials: If you follow a skincare routine for every season and are very particular about it, especially when going off station, carrying your own skincare essentials should be on the top of your list. For dealing with a heat stroke or a deep tan after a fun beach day or post volleyball game lunch-party, you must carry your sunscreen, moisturiser, lip guard and a mini face wash.
Water Bottle: If you suffer from motion sickness and find it challenging to go on a road trip, some simple home remedies can help you. Lemonade or some ginger water in a water bottle can be great to carry with you, as these are rich in antioxidants and can help you with heat strokes. Lemonades are also helpful in curing mild motion sickness. Steel water bottles or flask bottles are a wonderful option, and they make sure that your drink is safe, tastes the same and also maintains the exact temperature that it is supposed to.
Masks, Hand Sanitizers and Wet Wipes: Whether you are traveling with kids in tow or without kids, wet wipes are great to have in your backpack. Dirty tables at the beach, sticky fingers, changing your lip color or simply wiping your face after a tiring trek, wipes can be very helpful. If you are in a place where you may not be able to wash your hands, pocket hand sanitizers can also come to the rescue. With COVID-19 pandemic on our tails, masks are a must, but carrying a few extra can save you from situations when you have the need to change 2 or more in a day.
Hats and Sunglasses: Wide-brimmed, baseball or floppy, whatever your style is, don’t forget to pack a hat in your backpack and a pair of stylish sunglasses. You can wear them during your journey or you will need them while lounging poolside.
Vacation Reads: Crack opening the cover of a new book and burying the nose in it is the favorite vacation pastime for many vacationers. So, before you embark on your journey this summer, make sure you have your favorite reads or some newly launched novels ready in your tote bag.
Summer holidays are always fun and this fun can be doubled if you pack your things the smart way by preparing a list in advance and keeping these top 5 things in mind. Lastly, do not forget to do an online check-in for your tickets and enjoy your vacations thoroughly. Have a Happy Vacation!
