I’m on holiday even as we speak, having a lark of a time! 😀 While I was packing, I decided to share the 5 things I make sure to pack all the time. If you have more “must pack” items, do share in the comments 🙂
1. Pack a hat
If you are anything like me and are prone to bad hair days, get yourself a hat. A hat can hide a multitude of hair sins and help you look chic and pulled together in photos. I have photos of myself on holiday with hair looking like a bird’s nest that really spoils the shot. So, pack a hat. I have this old floppy beret hat that I bought while as a student, that serves me well till today. Its light and squashable and looks great in photos!
2. Pack your battery chargers
You don’t want your mobile phone or camera batteries running flat at the most unopportune times. So get a pouch and load it up with your battery chargers. I keep it all together in one pouch so I don’t lose them and always always store away your chargers once you are done using them. You do not want to leave them behind after you move off to a different hotel or city!
Extra Tip: Charge your camera battery everyday. On my trip to Japan last year, I failed to do so and before I knew it, the camera failed me at the worst possible moment! I had to make an extra trip back to the hotel, wait for the battery to charge and then go out again. Waste of time and money.
