Feature Article: Traveling Essentials

Most of you yearn for a journey that will give you hearts-ease. Though it is possible for you to find this on your own in the places where you currently live, most of us have fantasies of being able to find this when traveling to a new foreign land.

There's always something about traveling that makes people feel excited. Maybe it's being able to taste the new food, experiencing the new culture, marveling at the views, or maybe it's everything all at once that just makes the idea of going to a new place exhilarating.

However, traveling can be difficult considering it is expensive and sometimes needs a lot of requirements. When traveling, there is a lot to consider, such as purchasing plane tickets, booking a hotel, planning where to go, saving up for everything, and the likes. 

There's also the most burdensome of all: packing. Leaving you with the constant worry of leaving something important behind. There are always items that you can buy when you travel in case you forget, but here are some essentials you'll need to pack: 

1. Documents

Essential documents include a passport, visa, itinerary, insurance files, tickets, driver's license, or student ID. However, one thing that would be useful is to make sure that you also have a photocopy of these just in case the airline, hotel, or immigration would ask for one. It also wouldn't hurt to have a backup if we lose these important documents. 

2. Foreign Currency

There are always foreign currency booths in the airport of the area you are traveling to most of the time. However, bringing even just a little money in the foreign currency you are planning to go to will help save time and effort in lining up in foreign currency booths just to get a taxi or buy tickets for transportation to a hotel. Plus, it's good to pack some money in case of emergencies or if you want to buy something when you land.

3. Chargers

A cellphone charger on hand with you is always an absolute must. If you need some extra phone life, charging at the airport or the airplane can help in case of an emergency. 

Though charging stations in most countries, a few countries require you to use your charger, especially in more remote areas or developing nations. Using the original and appropriate charger also prevents possible problems with your phone, which can ruin your trip.

4. Plug Adapter or Voltage Converter

Not all countries have the same voltage in power outlets. Researching the standard voltage most ports in the country use will prevent any issues with the appliances you plan to bring. Moreover, some electric ports you use in your country may not be similar to the plug adapter that your phone or other appliances are currently using. Bringing an adapter will prevent these problems when you get to the country.

5. Delicates

Delicates like underwear and a brassiere are things you should bring extra of. Let's face it - if you run out of clothes, or for some reason lose them, you could always buy new ones in the country you are traveling to. However, bringing your own or extra delicates will prevent any issues of irritation if you use new delicates with a different type of cloth.

6. Toiletries

The essential toiletries to bring are shampoo, soap, toothpaste, deodorant, shaving supplies, and feminine hygiene products. Indeed, you could always buy these in whatever country you are going to. However, using new or different soaps, lotions, or shampoos may cause an untoward allergic reaction if you are trying or using a new product with different ingredients that you are not used to. Like a loofa or toothbrush, the others can be bought in the country you are traveling to or may even be provided by your hotel. 

7. Basic Medications and First Aid Kit

Basic medications for headache, stomach ache, body aches, and other maintenance medications you may need should be brought to the country you are going to, especially if they speak in a language different from your own. These are often very difficult to explain when going to a local pharmacy. Some countries may even ask for prescriptions for medicines you usually would need a prescription for in your country, so to be sure, make sure you bring the medications you will need.

A first aid kit containing basic materials and instructions is also good to bring. Sometimes, the first aid items for wounds, cuts, or bruises may look different in the country you are going to, especially if you are traveling to a developing country. Ensuring you have some basic supplies in your luggage would save you the hassle of googling how to use those items in an emergency.

So, I got a call. This very kind and patient man named Danver Maglasang walked me through this process to showcase my book, my baby, my hopes and dreams to share with more people than I can reach alone. What a wonderful fellow. I love him. Earlie Masciantonio

Thank you, ReadersMagnet for reviewing my manuscript! Before, I wasn’t really sure if I should push forward my plans of self-publishing my book because I am not confident with my words. Your editorial services and your honesty made gave me the boost I needed. Now I am excited to take a step further. I feel inspired. Great job, ReadersMagnet!
