For most of us, traveling is not complete without our trusty camera. Whether for sentimentality, proof, or bragging rights, travel photos are essentially a huge part of our trip. Sights are meant to be captured and shared especially when your travels bring you to see breathtaking vistas in Netherlands.

2. Sunblock

If we plan on spending our days outside for sightseeing, touring, and wandering wonderfully, we owe it to our skin to keep it guarded from the sun’s harmful UV rays. The use of sunscreen in tropical destinations is a must especially when you find yourself trekking the rocky formation of Machu Picchu in Peru.

3. Medicine kit

Despite how meticulous our preparation for our trip is, one should always account for possible sickness, injuries or accidents with the proper medicines found in a kit. If you’re on a food trip along the streets of Old Delhi in India and you suddenly discover your body’s limit on spicy food, having a medicine kit on hand will might just save the day.

4. Jacket/Parka/Heavy-duty umbrella

No matter the weather in our destination, planning for sudden changes in weather should be done by having a jacket/parka or an umbrella on hand. With weather patterns changing constantly like a girl on PMS, traveling loses its appeal when we’re suddenly freezing ourselves off from the cold or the rain in places like United Kingdom where weather patterns constantly change.

5. Multi-Plug Adapter

So much of us have multiple devices that we carry around wherever we go, and there is a constant need to charge our phones, cameras, and tablets. But what happens when we don’t have the proper plugs to power our gadgets? If a future trip to places such as Brazil, whose plug sockets are mighty different from the Philippines, is in the works, a multi-plug adaptor will definitely be your savior.

6. Travel bag

Besides your duffel bag and/or suitcase, one should always have an extra bag for traveling to carry wherever you go. Places like Damnoen Saduak floating market in Thailand where souvenirs are abundant; having one place to put all your purchases such as keepsakes or pasalubongs conveniently lessens the hassle of bringing so many shopping bags, and secures them all in one place to avoid losing them during your journey.

7. Travel Insurance
