Everyone has his own list when it comes to trips. This would of course differ from one person to another. The basics, the essentials, would probably be the same – clothes, toiletries, medicine, etc. However, there are some things which I find necessary to bring with me. Let me share my list with you and perhaps you can share yours?
My mobile phone
By all rights, the number one item on my list should be my netbook. In spite of the fact that I would be on vacation, I still feel the need to check my e-mail and blog every now and then. That is why I got my netbook. When I got my new mobile phone earlier this year, however, the netbook became optional. This is because I can access the Internet through WiFi on my phone. And that says everything!
My medicine kit
I know I said that this is probably a common item that people bring with them on trips, but you haven’t seen mine yet. Every time we get ready to go on a trip, I go to the drugstore and stock up on all sorts of meds! These are my staples:
1. Painkillers – usually Tylenol, in case I get a migraine attack, which usually happens, by the way.
2. Antacids – I suffer from chronic hyperacidity.
3. Anti-diarrhea pills – do I still have to explain? Strange food…
4. Anti-histamine – I am allergic to seafood but I love it.
My favorite book of the moment
This is especially important for me. I like to read to relax so a book is necessary while on vacation. If I do not have a hard copy of the book, I bring our PSP, which I use as an e-book reader.
What’s on your list?
