Don’t leave home without these 3 travel essentials
As many hunker down during winter months to cider and coffee by the fire, a few lucky people are off on travel adventures. Take a trip during the winter is quite different going on one during warmer months, because of weather problems that can occur and also due to sickness spread in airports and accommodations. Prepare for a carefree and relaxing vacation with these travel essentials.
This always tops the list of travel essentials for people of any age group. No matter where you are, having a handy small sanitizer in your back pocket can save a huge amount of germs from entering your body. Many remote areas might not have running fresh water, so hand sanitizer will come into use after the bathroom or just before eating in an airport to ensure cleanliness throughout the journey. If you can’t get your hands on a small sanitizer, wipes will work in the same manner. Don’t forget to wipe doors and hands before eating—you can never be too careful!
Healthy and Affordable Snacks
Traveling doesn’t mean giving up all diet options just because you’re not at home. A few favorites of travelers are Larabars (known for their yummy taste and healthy ingredients), homemade trail mix (try unsalted cashews, almonds, walnuts etc. mixed with shredded coconut, goji berries, and mini dark chocolate chips) or meat jerky. Airport food is often pricey, and Krispy Kreme can be a little too enticing after a long flight, so keep these snacks on handy for all hours of the day.
For families, try making trail mix at home before going away. This is a great bonding exercise and fun for all!
Many airlines are very picky about the size of carry-ons nowadays (we’ve said farewell long ago to the days of a three-suitcase limit without an extra charge) and adding a few extra shirts may seem like no big deal until the airline attendee weighs the case. To stay on track, purchase a small carry-on case at places like Target and Walmart that’s small enough to fit on the plane, but is also easy to track in case it gets lost through the airport shuffle. Bright prints like polka dots or animal prints are suitable for any age and a fun way to get excited for an upcoming trip.
