Travel Tips – Part 2

Make A Daily Carry ‘Go-Bag’

Preparing for your most-likely daily pitfalls will keep you ready for anything.

Your go-bag is meant to get you through your worst day. Let’s start with the basics.

  1. Water

Hydration is key to several natural processes in the human body.
Having water on hand will help you regulate through a number of stressful situations.

  1. Snacks

Quick calories give us energy to stay sharp and give you a cognitive boost.
Having high calorie dense foods like dates or nuts will recharge your body and mind. 

  1. Local map & compass

Along with a good local map, having a compass lets you navigate when you can’t otherwise get your bearings.

  1. First-aid & daily medication

Having a basic first-aid kit including a few band-aids, triple antibiotic ointment, moleskin, aspirin, ibuprofen, and an extra set of daily medications will set you up for success. Your environment and your daily routine will dictate what you put into your kit. 

  1. Local currency in small bills

When it’s late at night, and you have to go into a convenience store in an unfamiliar place, you don’t want to pull a US $100 bill out of your sock. Carrying small bills, spread out around your person will give you easy access to cash and help you keep a low profile.

With these items close at hand, you will be ready for the most likely scenarios, and have a solid foundation to help you through all the what-if’s as well.
