Traveling always required planning, and for a while, it was not really achievable at all. However, the world is starting to get back to normal, and countries are opening up for tourists. We want to make the worries of the travels more effortless, and these are 5 must-have accessories for your trip in 2021!
PPE Is a Must Now
As we still live in a global pandemic, taking precautions is even more necessary. Masks, hand sanitizer, gloves… There is a lot of traffic in airports, and it is always better to stay on that safer side. Nowadays, masks come in all the possible colors and designs, so you will be able to match your outfit – being safe was never that fashionable! Also, bringing hand sanitizer in a carry-on might be difficult, which is where those hand sanitizer wipes come to help. They are small, no mess, and easy to use, so keep them in your bag and clean those hands! All that and more will help you to feel safe in crowded spaces, airplanes, or airports.
Yes, you can always ask people to take a picture, but maybe you have some social anxiety or simply do not want to bother others around you. A tripod or a selfie stick will help you to make those memories last by taking as many pictures as you want. However, you will have your phone held up high a lot, and it may fall, as life happens, so keep it safe and cute and protective phone case, and continue to take those pictures without a worry in your sight.
Keep Your Toiletries in One Bag
Select a bag with multiple pockets to keep your bathroom necessities in one place. This will help you save time and organize your suitcase, as no hand creams will come flying out once you unzip your luggage. Also, choose a waterproof one, no more clothes destroyed by the leaking shampoo! Once at a hotel, transfer this bag to your backpack, and you will never run out of soap when exploring the country. You will also be able to brush your teeth after meals, which might seem unnecessary, but will help you feel fresh when the hotel is still far away!
Reusable Water Bottle
Yes, this is an additional thing to carry and might seem unnecessary, with all that water available for purchase at the stores. But pair it with a water filtering straw or buy a bottle that has a changeable filter, and you will not only save the planet from all that plastic waste but will also be able to use water that may usually not be that tasty or safe. And this typically means free, so you will keep the planet and your wallet happy in the long term.
Travel Money Belt
Yes, we all know those memes about fanny packs, but this is the best choice for your travels. Choose one that fits snug around your stomach and can be easily hidden under clothes, and you will have yourself the safest place to keep your cards and cash. It does not get safer than being on your body, so relax; even if you meet some pickpockets on your way, with those empty pockets of yours, they will only be disappointed.
