Top 7 things to carry on your travel tip

December 2015


Saint Augustine once said that, "The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." His words could not be more true, especially since we are a part of a world that is so diverse in its culture and beauty, it would be an injustice to nature if we don't move out of our abodes and explore it wholeheartedly from time to time. Travelling is the perfect way to step out of your routine, relieve some of that stress and spend time with your loved ones whilst soaking in the culture and splendor of different locations. However, planning an outing is no cakewalk and can be truly exhausting at times. To make the process a whole lot easier, we have made you the perfect list of travel essentials that you just cannot miss carrying on your trip! 

Portable Phone Charger – The last thing you want is for your cell phone to abandon you in transit and the extra entertainment can come in handy during the long hours of waiting! Plus, you can freely use your smartphone to document the trip and capture your experiences. So, keep your portable charger at hand when outlets are scarce and you need to squeeze some more life out of your phone. 

Dry Shampoo – Long travel days can leave you feeling exhausted and in desperate need of a shower. Pack a travel-size bottle of dry shampoo to freshen up greasy hair. Also, don't forget to carry your favourite hairbrush to comb out the white powder and give your ends a little refreshment. 

The Perfect Footwear - You never know how far you'll have to walk between terminals and flight connections or during daylong tours, so be sure the pair of shoes you wear will get you to your destination blister-free and ready to explore. 

Travel Journal - Some of the best travel plans are made en route to your destination. You've spent time researching your destination, and now is an excellent opportunity to map out how you'd like to spend your days. With a travel journal in one hand and your guidebook in another, begin jotting down ideas for your trip as well as what you hope to take away from the experience. Set an intention for your journey and make note of the places you don't want to miss. Be sure to have blank pages on hand in this journal to capture your thoughts and record highlights from your trip. 

Face Moisturizer - You've heard it before: Travel causes dehydration. In addition to drinking plenty of water, pack a travel-size moisturizer to protect your skin from drying out. Carry a day cream or moisturizer, so you arrive at your destination feeling rejuvenated instead of weary and fatigued. 

Sunglasses – A pair of sunglasses is especially liberating for an early morning takeoff or a crack-of-dawn landing. This thing will also be your best friend once you arrive at your sun-drenched destination. 

Summer Book – Summer reads are key to a carefree travel experience. Even with modern gadgets in hand, nothing compares to unplugging with a good book. Pack an engrossing novel and you'll find yourself wishing for more travel time, just to keep reading.  

We hope that these travel packing tips help you enjoy everything the destination has to offer, without worrying about the little things.  Also, don't forget to take a spa detour at your Panchshil Home when you come back to end the perfect vacation. Happy Traveling!
