Deciding what to take along with us on holiday has always been a difficult task. While most of your time may be spend wondering just how you’re going to minimize your entire wardrobe into a small suitcase, or deciding which one of those great novels you’re finally going to get round to reading on the beach, there are a few accessories that are must-haves whatever the occasion.
Rather than wasting money buying bottles of water over and over again, invest in a reusable water bottle with a filter that will last you the long-haul. The filter will remove any risk of harmful bacteria which can be found in suspect tap water. As well as providing you with much safer water that’s tastier to drink, though, you’ll also be doing your bit for the environment by not purchasing more wasteful products.
Nowadays, we’re all more reliant on technology than ever before. Whether it’s our smartphone or a digital camera, running out of juice while you’re on the move simply isn’t an option. Remember to bring along a couple of spare charging cables. You should also invest in a portable charging pack so that you aren’t reliant on finding an available outlet at cafes or at the airport.
We’ve all been on flights that have been made difficult by other passengers, whether it’s an easily excited child or someone who should really know better by now. Remember to grab a pair of earplugs to block out any unwanted distractions. They may even come in handy at other times during your trip, such as blocking out the sounds of a busy part of town when you’re trying to sleep.
The humble backpack may seem like an obvious choice, but with so many choices available to you choosing the right one can be difficult. Skate Hut stock a variety of different brands, from those aimed at exploring rough terrain to those designed to simply look great. If you’re going to be walking a lot during your trip, make sure you find something comfortable.
Finally, what’s travelling without your favourite music? Whether you’re heading out on a road trip or just lazing on the beach, a portable Bluetooth speaker is the perfect way to share your music with others while on the move. As well as something that has great sound quality, try to find something that’s durable and preferably water-proof so that it will last the duration of your trip.
