Ever thought you’ve packed everything you could possibly need and then when you actually got to your destination realised there were a few things that you wished you had packed?? The first time I went travelling there were certain things that I didn’t think of taking which would have been really useful.
#1 Multi plug
In hostels, sometimes you only get 1 plug socket and it’s so annoying when you have to decide which one is more important to charge, your laptop, your phone or your camera. I’ve got a few multi plugs around my house which I could have taken and was so annoyed I didn’t think of it!
#2 Metal or plastic box
I use a backpack and so things get thrown around a lot in my bag and sometimes I bring or buy delicate things that break easily. A box would have been a great help!
#3 Extra pair of earphones
Those damn things break so easily. Nightmare when you get on a 20 hour train ride and realise your earphones are broken. No music, no films just boredom for the rest of the journey.
Seriously… This is a must. I’m not kidding. I don’t usually wear a watch, but when travelling it’s so useful. If you’ve got a backpack on and you are in a dodgy neighbourhood not wanting to get your phone out to check if your going to make the train it’s so useful! Needed to check the time so many times and it was annoying having had to rely on my phone. Even worse is when my phone died and I desperately needed to know the time.
#5 Better camera
I thought it would be to much hassle to bring my big large lens camera, however, soon I realised that it wouldn’t have made that much of a difference in my rucksack. I found it really hard to get those perfect shots. If you’re contemplating whether to bring your SLR or not. DO IT!
