High SPF Sunscreen

What’s the fun of vacationing in summer if you cannot soak a bit of sunshine? Don’t forget to carry a safe and effective sunscreen wherever you go. Remind yourself to reapply every 3-4 hours and attain maximum protection from the harmful UVA and UVB rays. Also, it is advisable to lather yourself with sunscreen when on the plane, especially if you’re seated on the window side because the sun rays at high altitude is even more harmful to your skin.

Prefer natural sunscreen over chemical-based ones. Nourished Life and 100 Percent Pure have offers up to 50% off.  

Camera to document

A good camera is enough to take memorable pictures and videos but if you want to share your travel experience on a larger scale then Go Pro is highly recommended, especially if you plan on going underwater for a snorkel trip.

First Aid

Prevention is better than cure, so be prepared for anything that might befall during travelling. From motion sickness to diarrhoea, to allergies to band-aids, carry a small first aid kit and enjoy your vacation to the fullest, without having to drop by foreign pharmacies.

Passport and your ID pictures

There’s no traveling without your passport, so tucking your passport in your carry bag should be your first priority. Also, carry a spare passport picture and other government ID cards just in case of worst-case scenario.

Self-indulgence kits

Your summer vacation may be with your family but that does not mean you deprive yourself of some quality self-time.
