Travel Tip: Essentials for day trips

l’ll admit it: I organise and plan almost everything. I love it – and I do mean love it! Although dating back to over a century ago on my father’s side, it must adhere to my German roots: Ordnung muss sein, ’ne!?

Day Trip

One thing, I know too well by now is to pack for a day trip. There are just certain items you need during such an adventure that you can’t go without. As such, the following presents you with my list of must haves travel items for a day trip:

  1. Travel bag
  2. Good walking shoes
  3. Sunglasses, sunscreen and an umbrella
  4. Cardigan and/or jacket, scarf and gloves depending on the weather – just in case
  5. Wallet, (passport) and keys
  6. Hand Sanitiser and travel tissues
  7. Headphones for bus or train ride – just in case
  8. Magazine and/or (travel) book for bus or train ride – just in case
  9. Camera(!) (and charger)
  10. Water bottle
  11. Snacks
  12. Patches/band-aids – just in case

What do you have in your travel bag? Advise is always well-received! …Sharing is caring, right!?

  2. You listed everything I would have said. I must say, though, that I’m so glad for my smartphone. I remember the days when I needed to carry a book with me everywhere. Now I mostly read Kindle books, which (when I’m out and about) I just read on my phone. And it’s my camera, too . . . . and my notebook. My smart phone is a huge space saver for me compared to how my day-bags used to look.

  3. In NZ it always pays to take (in addition to your listed things) your togs and a towel as you’re never far from somewhere to swim! Oh, and insect repellent too as you’re never far from sandflies!

  4. Hi there!

    I’m really enjoying reading your blog posts. However, it won’t let me comment for some reason? Your list below is fantastic although I would add parcetomol with the band aids!
