A trip to another country requires preparation! If you have not traveled to distant countries before, you can even forget many important items. Examine the list below to avoid inconvenience.
- Charge Up
Most planes have in-seat outlets nowadays, but if you’re on a short flight, your aircraft probably won’t have a plug.
- Neck pillow
If you are going on a long journey, then you should bring a neck pillow. The pillow provides neck and body support so you can sleep in a relaxed position even in the cramped, uncomfortable seat of the plane.
On the road, headphones will always be useful, they will be needed during a long flight. During trips you can immerse yourself in a movie or favorite music. Choose high-quality headphones that block the constant sounds. Even if your seatmate will snore you won’t hear it.
- Bag with many pockets
You should organize your things that you need first. For this, you can take a bag in which there are many pockets. You can put things like a computer, first-aid kit, passport or something else there. In this case, everything that you want will be nearby.
- Lip balm
It protects the skin of the lips from dehydration, that is, the loss of moisture. This problem is particularly relevant in places with a cold, dry climate. In addition to protecting, lip balm prevents against the painful cracks and chapping of lip skin.
- Mask for eyes
Pure-silk mask will help you fall asleep and allow your eyes to rest. The light in the cabin will be dimmed at night, but total darkness will not be superfluous.
If you experience discomfort and pain in your ears during takeoff and landing because of air pressure changing, earplugs can be a real salvation for you. And besides, noisy neighbors will not disturb your sleep if you take earplugs with you.
- Pencil box
If you go on a trip and need to have a pen or other similar tools, you should take a pencil box. In addition, you can put there an extra-long phone cord or a charging cable.
- Compression socks
During long flights, you are at high risk of deep vein thrombosis due to a fixed position. This is a very dangerous condition in which a blood clot forms in a vein. Compression socks are an excellent means to support blood circulation in the legs.
Do not be lazy to take a light blanket. It can be useful to you, since the temperature in the cabin can be different and you can be cold.
You should also divide all things into several organizers. You can put laptop chargers, power cords, and social-media equipment in the largest pouch. A hand sanitizer, lotion can be put in the smaller one. In the smallest pouch put lip balm, sleep mask or something else.
