Are you on a set of flying to Australia? Are you excited to do a bunch of adventures in a faraway yet worth-visiting place in the heart of Oceania? Well, if your answers are both a “yes”, you must have a little concern on something, huh?
If you’re having a heart attack on planning what to include in your mighty travel bag, then read and search no further because I got your back! So, get ready, pack, and go!
YOUR BELOVED DOCUMENTS
Don’t be too forgetful for disregarding your documents in your packing process. Most of these such as your passport, visa, a bunch of cash and etcetera are your keys to any country you’re visiting, not only in Australia.
I suggest that you place them in your luggage where it would be easier for you to get and reach for them anytime and anywhere. Also, it’s advisable for you to put them together in one folder not only for organization purposes but also to avoid misplacement.
GOOD SETS OF CLOTHES TO GET YOU COVERED
Not just clothes, okay? Or anything that you want to wear as if you’re at a fashion show. One thing that you must consider is the weather in a particular place or places you’re visiting in Australia.
It’s really necessary that after you decide on the place you want to visit, is that you know its climate and weather. Most importantly on the day of your arrival and in the span of days, you’re staying. You know, you couldn’t go on a super cold weather with tank top and shorts.
COMFY FOOTWEAR FOR YOUR HAPPY FEET
This is advisable especially to the ladies, choose the most appropriate shoes or flip-flops for every travel you’re planning. You don’t want to torture your feet with that owww-mazing high heels or broken flip-flops, right?
Travelling requires a lot of walking trip to somewhere and anywhere, that’s why a good set of footwear is something that you really need to invest into. Trust me, you would enjoy it more if you’re incredibly comfortable with what lies beneath your happy feet.
FINE AND NEAT TOILETRIES
These could be one of the most disregarded items of all times, the toiletries. ‘Coz why am I bringing those bathroom thingies?! My good friend, simply because not all the time, your chosen place to stay in Australia would have the things that you need for your personal hygiene. And speaking of “personal hygiene”, it’s for your personal use, so, that makes sense that it’s your duty to bring your own and those that are in the accommodations are only for emergency purposes.
TWO TYPES OF BAG TO LOOK MORE FAB
If you’re puzzling about this, then I’m washing of that curiosity away at this very moment. When planning a trip somewhere, be it only an out-of-town adventure or away from your country, it’s suggested for you to bring at least 2-3 bags – your luggage bag is already counted.
This is for the convenience of every adventure that Australia has for you. You can have an extra sling bag or a smaller bag than your luggage. This is merely to make your trip better and lighter. Simply because you wouldn’t want to stroll around Australia with that tremendous bag, would you?
LET THE MEDICINES COME IN
No matter how happy you could be, sudden and unexpected sickness or minor accidents may ruin your colourful moments.
That’s why you need to consider bringing sets of medicines for emergency purposes especially that you’re far away from your home.
These medicines could be for dizziness, colds, cough and sore throat and unwanted fever. Whether any of these happens to you, you would be incredibly grateful that you have, and you brought your own meds. This really works most importantly when you forgot to search about the nearest hospitals or clinic around the place you’re staying in.
GUIDEBOOKS TO ENLIGHTEN YOU
Yes, it may sound old or traditional but bringing a guidebook is more beneficial than depending on your internet connection. If you don’t have a portable Wi-Fi, guidebooks are the answers. Also, it’s like hitting multiple birds with one stone.
Why? This kind of books has every little detail that you need to know in the country you’re considering. Also, it has the list of suggestions such for the possible hotels, restaurants, recreation places, entertainment areas, possible activities and anything that you might be having difficulty figuring out at first. Besides, this book is so convenient and easy to use – it isn’t that bulky or heavy.
GOOD QUALITY CAMERAS
Who doesn’t want an Instagram perfect photo? Of course, no one! So, if you don’t want to go home disappointed, it’s highly suggested that you invest in good quality cameras most importantly if you’re an inborn adventurer from the very start.
Yes, it may be a little pricey at first, but forget that and imagine how it could deliver you great memories in a form a photograph. Of course, you must also take time and make a great effort to learning the proper way of taking great photos.
MORE OF THESE ELECTRONIC DEVICES
If you’re having a long stay in Australia, might as well bring these electronic devices that would help you to survive more in the remaining travel days. These devices include the following:
- Lightweight laptop – this may be your first choice when you’re running out of storage on your phone or camera.
- Spare memory card – a great alternative for a laptop
- Power bank – this thing would save your day, trust me!
- GoPro – this works for people who aren’t stoppable of exploring such adventures with nature
- Universal Adapter – this doesn’t merely work on your trip to Australian, but it’s giving you an access to any places that you would be in whether charging your devices or ironing your hair.
24/7 SUPPLY OF HAPPINESS AND APPRECIATION
And last but definitely and awesomely not the least of all, a great supply of happiness and appreciation. I do believe that no matter how spectacular the place you’re visiting, this is useless if you don’t know how to appreciate every little thing that the moment has for you.
So, travel with all your will and with all your heart. It’s only a waste of time and money if you do this against your will. You better give your best and shining smile spread the love, and collect memories all along your way.
Are you ready to take on the road and spread that cheerfulness and make that excitement explode? Better take all these noted so for you to have more fun and worthy stay in the extravagant land of Australia. Don’t forget to always chase your happiness and leave all the dramas behind. The world deserves all the happiness your heart has to offer.
