Going on vacation, you need to seriously approach the collection of things that are worth taking with you on a trip. Sometimes collecting in a hurry can bring a lot of inconvenience in the future and seriously ruin the vacation.
First, sit down and calmly plan your trip. Imagine at least approximately a program for every day and in general for the entire rest period. And only after that, write a list of necessary things that you need to take with you.
Money and documents
The most important thing in organizing a vacation is to take money and all the necessary documents with you. This includes cash, bank cards, passport, medical policy, transport tickets, birth certificates of children. If the parents are divorced or one of the spouses is traveling with a child, a special permit will be required to travel abroad.
For safety reasons, it is worth making copies of documents and putting them separately from the originals.
Also, do not forget to take with you a receipt confirming the reservation of the rental housing during the holiday.
In the modern world, it is difficult to imagine life without gadgets, even on vacation. Tablet, laptop, camera, e-book - the list of necessary equipment for each person is individual, only a mobile phone remains in common.
To travel in a car, you need a navigator or a map of the area. Don't forget to pack the charger and Power Bank in your luggage.
First aid kit
A first aid kit is a very important thing on the trip. It is collected individually, depending on the health status of each family member.
But there is a basic set of medicines that you may need in an emergency.
Put in your holiday kit:
- pain relievers and antipyretics;
- medicines for the stomach in case of food poisoning or intestinal infection;
- drugs for motion sickness in transport (Dramina);
- electronic thermometer;
- personal medications for chronic diseases;
- wet wipes;
- cream for burns;
- means for first aid (hydrogen peroxide, brilliant green or iodine, dressings).
Clothes and footwear
In this case, there is no single correct list of things. It is important that the clothing is appropriate for the situation. If you want to spend the whole vacation actively, take sportswear, and if you plan to walk along the promenade and visit restaurants, put a couple of evening dresses in your suitcase.
It will not be superfluous to take comfortable shoes with you, your feet will say "thank you".
It is better to keep cosmetics and personal hygiene products to a minimum. Firstly, hotels provide cosmetic kits for guests, and secondly, hygiene items can be purchased locally.
A good solution is to use travel mini-container kits. You can pour your favorite cosmetic products into small bottles and not carry large amounts of cosmetics with you.
But it is better to buy sunscreens in advance, at the resorts they are much more expensive.
Water and food will be very useful on the road. Sandwiches, cookies, fruits, nuts and muesli will satisfy your hunger and will not overload your stomach.
Do not take a lot of food, it can go bad on the way. At major stops and gas stations, you can eat in a cafe.
If you do decide to feed on your own supplies, use a cooler bag to store food.
Do not take quickly perishable foods, soda and unhealthy fast food with sauces on the road. The simpler and healthier the food, the better for the stomach.
If you have a long journey with small children, take "entertainment" for them. Coloring pages, books, puzzles, favorite toys, a tablet with cartoons and a CD with children's songs will brighten up the travel time for both children and adults.
It is good if you buy several new toys in advance and only give them to your child in the car (train, plane). Such a surprise will captivate the kid for a long time and cheer him up.
