Liking sun is human - in fact it is biological to crave sun, because sun can give you a boost of vitamin D. After All, vitamin D deficiency is strongly linked to depression, while sunlight is strongly linked to better mood. And who doesn’t want to lift their spirits? People who live in a climate where seasonal change brings the onslaught of rain, heavy clouds and other forces of nature that render the sun to be very limited in supply. You can start by changing your screensaver with a picture of a sunny beach and dream a dream to warm up your bones in a warm destination. Bet when imagination fails to produce Vitamin D, you can always book a trip to a warm destination. Here’s what you shouldn’t leave behind when going on your vacay.
The most important item for any journey - an item that should always be the first item on your packing list. Make sure you have all the necessary visas and, most importantly, check if the passport is valid for at least half a year after your return date.
Small accidents happen wherever you are - regardless if you are travelling alone or in a group. If you can bring along the first aid kit with the essentials, it can certainly become very helpful.
Towels can get quite bulky, so they are certainly not a desirable item to bring along on a flight, but there are no guarantees that your accommodations will have a towel for your needs - like, for instance, a baby towel to wrap a toddler in, or a large beach towel. If you want a guarantee that you will have a towel you like, we suggest you bring your own. For example, SYOURSELF Microfiber Sports & Travel Towel is lightweight, absorbent and fast-dry; Microfibre Travel Towel is great for anything active - gym, yoga, beach, swimming, camping and more.
This is a rule for any tourist out there - please check if you need a special adapter for you electronics before you go. There are different electrical requirements for your electronic devices and also different plugs in different parts of the world. When in doubt, you can always go for a universal power adaptor, such as Travel Smart All-In-One Adapter with USB Port by Conair.
The gadgets - when you travel make sure that you don’t accidentally drop any electronics in the hustle and bustle of travel. Get a few protective cases to guard them - such as Gadget Guard Black Ice Plus Liquid Edition Screen Protector.
When traveling to sunny, hot destination, a good quality sunscreen is a must. After testing quite a few types, we opted for one of the favorites of 2018: Your Skin But Better by IT Cosmetics.
Warm destinations also usually come with some local inhabitants - mosquitoes, spiders and other insects. Make sure you are safe and protected - but try to minimize the chemical harm to yourself and nature by choosing one of the natural mosquito repellents, such as these bracelets that will keep all the bugs away.
You need shoes that would be perfect for the beach, hiking or hitting a local bar. One of our favorite brands is Teva Verra that offers sandals that are amazing for different occasions.
