It happens to even the most experienced traveler; you finished packing, made it through the airport, hired a luggage delivery service and got all the way to your hotel, only to realize you left your bathing suit in the drawer and your camera’s memory card is still by the computer. Here are some of the most forgotten items for traveling so you remember next time:
Most people today can’t function without their phones, but your phone won’t function without a charge. Try setting a reminder on your phone to pack the charger, because we all know you won’t forget your phone!
Emergency First Aid
This is one of those things you won’t miss until you really need it. Don’t underestimate the importance of a small first aid kit with some bandages, even if it’s just for blisters after a day on the town.
It may seem trivial, but for the gym goer or those using hotel amenities, a small travel lock can give you peace of mind that your items are safe when you can see them.
Your fancy camera and selfie stick are going to take some great pictures on your trip, just don’t forget the memory card! Make sure you have all your camera accessories packed up with your camera to ensure you can share all the memories with friends and family.
Just like the swimsuit, never underestimate the usefulness of a jacket. Movie theaters get cold, restaurants can be chilly, and can you ever really trust the weather? Always bring something warm to wear – just in case.
Let’s face it, accidents happen. You will have dirty clothes on your trip, and you will need somewhere to put them. Bring a laundry bag and some sort of laundry soap is another must-have for those accidental spills on your favorite pants. You’ll be glad you did!
