A BASIC TRAVELLER'S KIT GUIDE
Never be caught unprepared during a trip. Plan ahead and stuff
your bag with essentials things you need. The better prepared
you are, the more fun you will have on the trip. Here's a
checklist of what should be inside your traveler's kit.
*Medicine Kit Never assume that no mishaps will happen on a
trip. Even minor bruises should be taken care of. Always keep
your first- aid kit handy.
Treating wounds Bring along a roll of bandage, safety pins and
scissors. Tweezers might be needed to pull out foreign materials
that penetrate the skin. Bring ointments and alcohols for
treating abrasions. If you are prone to allergies and itching,
antihistamine medications like Benadryl should be handy.
Common medicine Carry along medicines that you are likely to
use, like aspirin for headaches, laxative for proper bowel
movement and pain relievers. If you have a runny nose, buy a
couple of decongestant. Dehydration and motion sickness is
common when traveling, consult your doctor on which medicine is
appropriate for you.
Prescription drugs Remember to bring along whatever medication
you are taking. Bring enough supply to last for the entire trip.
*Personal Hygiene Kit This kit must include all your toiletries.
This will keep you looking fresh all the time. Dental Bring
along your toothbrush, toothpaste and dental floss. Buy a small
bottled mouthwash or if you have plenty of supply left, just
transfer it to a smaller container.
Hair Carry along your
favorite brush, comb and shampoo. Stuff in
your hair spray, hair cream and gels if you are using one.
Personal effects This will include your make-up kit. Remember to
bring only the cosmetics that you are likely to use. Carry with
you a handy mirror. You can bring your manicure set too.
Skin protection Keep your skin healthy by putting on sunscreen
and lip balm as often as you need them.
Bathroom needs Bring along with you sets of toilet papers,
soaps, towels and washcloth.
*Emergency Kit This includes the stuff you might need like
flashlights, lighters, pocket knife and duct tapes. Mobile
phones are important in case of emergency, be sure to bring your
charger and an extra battery.
*Leisure Kit For added fun, you can bring along your travel
journal, reading materials and the locale's language book. Make
the most out of fantastic views with your binoculars and your
There is no such thing as a standard traveler's kit. It varies
upon the place and the activities you'll do in a certain place.
The above kits are basically the essentials. Be sure to keep
everything checked and have a fun trip ahead!
