Last moment hustle is something we all can correlate with while going on a trip, no matter how planned it was. And if it is a family trip then over obsessed luggage stuffed with mostly unnecessary items leave us embarrassed at airport luggage counter and during check-in and check out at hotels. This inspired me to write a blog explaining what are the most necessary things we should have in our luggage to avoid the last minute hustle and the those embarrassing bulky luggage
1. Keep track of the weather forecast-
Though We all crack jokes on the weather forecast but still if you are planning a trip then you must be aware of the weather predictions. Because ignoring weather forecast can ruin your entire trip.
Last time when I was in Shimla, I ignored the forecast of rain and didn’t carry any umbrella or raincoat. The moment I reached the Mall Road heavy rain started and lasted for 3-4hpours completely ruining mine experience.
No matter which weather and to which part of the world you are visiting, sunglass is imperative. Sunglass not just adds X-factor to your pictures but also important to protect your eyes from intense sunlight. Either it is scorching summer or snow-clad mountain, you must have a sunglass to counter the albedo effect.
You cannot rely upon medicine facility during transit and stay in an unknown place, thereby apart from the first aid, your medical kit must have a couple of medicines for common ailments like headache, fever, loose motion etc.
4. Never forget to carry your identity
Although most of the documents are available online and one can carry them in the digital wallet but you cannot guarantee about the mobile battery’s life and network, so, it is advisable to carry important documents like ID card, Tickets etc.
No, you are not supposed to copy your Gujju friend in carrying snacks but you must have at least some snacks in your bag pack so that if you are not able to enjoy the local cuisine you can survive. Snacks also play an important role as time pass during the journey and save you from eating unhygienic highway food and inviting indigestion. Your snacks basket must consist of some energy bars.
Mobile charger, selfie stick, power bank, torch etc are other essentials your luggage must carry. So, next time when you will be packing make a To-Do list and mark all these essentials.
