Things to Bring when Camping

Camping outside is no joke especially for those who are just beginners in the nature tripping hobby. Here is a list of some essential things that you must bring when camping.

  1. Flashlight

Light is scarce in the wild so you have to always be prepared. This also serves as a safety precaution in the wilderness.

  1. Food and Water

You need these to sustain yourself in the wild. Never be too cheap on when it comes to these essentials!

  1. Clothes

The wild is rough and dirty so you must always be ready with spare clothes, just in case you need some.

Useful Travel Tips

Traveling is exciting, but preparing for it can be a big headache. We have collected the most-approved travel tips to save you from troubles you might encounter during your trips.

  1. Roll the clothes instead of folding them to save space. Rolled clothes can make full use of the suitcase space. You can fill up the small space with socks, underwear and other small items. Rolling can also prevent wrinkles.
  2. Exercise the day before your trip to avoid jet lag.

  3. Scan your passport, identity cards and itinerary then send copies to yourself to prevent important materials being stolen or lost.
  4. Put necklaces through straws to prevent tangles.
  5. Wear clothes with many pockets so you don’t need to frequently open your luggage.
  6. Take pictures of maps, notes and itinerary with your camera or cell phone to save space.
  7. When choosing flight seats for two, choose the window and aisle one. It’s most likely that the middle seat will remain empty. Even if it’s taken, you can swap seats and sit together.

  8. Mark your suitcase as fragile and it will be handled carefully. It will also be placed above other suitcases and be the first to be put onto the conveyor belt.

  9. Can’t remember where you were when you took photos? Simply take a picture of the ticket or road sign before taking photos of a new destination.

  10. Unpack everything upon arrival. The longer you wait, the more reluctant you are to move.
