3. Sanitary Napkins
You can skip packing your phone and clothes for once, but do not forget to carry a bunch of sanitary napkins. Even if it’s not the time of your month, you never know what happens when. It’s always better if you are prepared for all the unseen circumstances. You can also carry a menstrual cup with you if you are comfortable using it.
4. Extra Lingerie
When we are out on a vacation, we hardly get any time to wash our clothes. And, if you are going to places like Goa, Maldives, Bali, or any coastal area, it is difficult for your clothes to dry up fast. In such a case, it is always recommended to carry 2-3 extra pairs of lingerie along.
5. A Fancy Dress
Your entire trip is not going to be full of adventures and exploration. There will be some point of time when you would just want to get all decked up and go for a serene dinner. Do carry a smoking hot dress for such nights! Get into your best look and click some gorgeous pictures to add to your Facebook timeline.
6. A Jacket
Be it any season, it is always advisable to carry a jacket along. You just can’t trust the weather. You can use the jacket in extreme weather conditions, for instance, heavy rains or cold winds. In this case, you can go with a classy leather jacket or a stylish denim jacket. Such jackets can be paired with any dress to get a fabulous look.
7. A Comfy pair of Sleepers
Apart from your shoes, sandals, and heels, you must also carry a pair of flip-flops. Flip flops indeed are the most comfortable pair of footwear one can ever own. You can wear them when you are tired of your heavy shoes and sandals. You can also wear them in your hotel room in case you are not provided with one.
8. An Id Proof
Another most essential item to carry while you are out on a vacay is an id proof. Be it a driving license, a PAN card, or an Aadhar card, you must carry at least one original id proof in your bag. Id proof is a must as it can be asked anywhere at any time, while you are checking-in in a hotel or crossing any border.
9. A Medication Kit
Here comes the baap of the essential items- the medication kit. You never know what the future has in store. You might also fall a little sick if you are traveling to extreme cold or extremely hot places. So do carry a tablet for all the basic illnesses such as cold, fever, cough, vomitings. Also, don’t forget to carry a Dettol, a cotton roll, and a band-aid in the pretty little box.
10. A Deodorant
There will be days when you don’t get time to get a shower. On such days, you can make use of a deodorant and keep yourself smell fresh and fine. You can also use it when you have walked a lot or just finished a hike and are sweating like never before. Using a good fragrance perfume/deo in such situations will make you feel happy and refreshed.
