Top 10 travel essentials

Hi all, As you might know, I'm going to New Zealand in January 2016! For this big adventure I want to prepare myself well. I found some great items that I really need to take with me. I also want some new hiking boots and trailrunners. Of course you will need to purchase on time because they need to be worn in a little.

I made a top 10 list of the most important and best travel essentials to take with you on a long trip.


1.Passport

you can't get far without it;-) make sure that it won't expire! many countries won't let you in if your passport expires within six months of your arrival date. And also get a travel insurance and make copies of your documents.

2.Camera
This is my most important essential;-) because I love to make pictures and share it with the rest of the world.

3.Smartphone 

Useful if you want to use a map or look up some information of the place you're at! You can also get on facebook and share pictures and listen to music. Don't forget to turn your date roaming off, because you don't want a big phone bill.

4.Clothes
Think about flip flops, hiking boots, thick sweater, scarf, raincoat, swimwear , shorts, underwear, cap or hat, dress or skirt, socks and sunglasses.Tip: make your clothing into rolls for more space.

5.Toiletries

Think about wet wipes, the pill, lenses, travel towel, sunscreen, after-sun lotion, make-up, deodorant, hand sanatizer , shower gel and a Hairbrush / Comb.

6.First aid kit

These are available with everything in it and you can buy them at just about any drugstore.

7.Card game

If you get bored and have to wait on the airport and of course because I just love to play games.

8.Pocket knife

For opening stuff, cutting a piece of fruit, or just some small-time handy work (which is one of the reasons it's also handy to have your boyfriend with you :p) 

9.Backpack

Think about how much space you're going to need, and take a backpack that fit's your body well. All the nice outfits you want to take with you, are going to weigh something ;).  

10.Notepad and pen
To write the special moments down and also usefull if you get tips or information during your journey.
