Travelling alone is one of the most liberating experiences you can ever have. It allows you to meet new people, experience different cultures and offer you the ability to be in tune with yourself. Before venturing on your solo adventure, be sure to pack the following 5 essentials so that you can enjoy better peace of mind during your itinerary:
- Power bank
A power bank is extremely handy, especially when travelling to a country with limited or no access to electricity. It allows you to use your smartphone without the need of looking for a plug point.
- First-aid kit
Travelling alone can make you feel lonely and vulnerable at times, especially if you are in an unfamiliar place. To make yourself feel better and safer, bring a first-aid kit along. You can also ask the hotel where you are staying to keep one for you which they will be happy to.
- Portable door alarm
This might not be something that you would like to consider but trust me, a portable door alarm can come in handy when you are staying alone in a hotel room. It gives a sense of security especially if the room has no additional locks attached to it.
- Door stopper
This is an essential gadget that comes in handy when you are travelling to countries with poor security. A door stopper can prevent intruders or evil-doers from entering your room while you are sleeping.
- Smart carry-on
A TSA-Approved smart carry-on can help you in many ways when you are travelling to different places. Most of these carry-ons have removable batteries, standard USB charger(s), TSA-Approved locks, and other handy features. It is important that your bag has compartments and dividers so you can immediately find what you need without having to open the entire thing every time. This will definitely make life easier for you especially if you are always on the go!
It’s important that you always pack the essential items that you think will be of help to you before you embark on your solo adventure. The more prepared and better equipped you are, the better experience you can have!
