Anyone who has travelled even a little would know that packing is the most important component of a traveller. If you are taking a plane to your destination, like foreign travellers with us at Udiron do, you will have to keep a close watch on the weight of your bags! Moreover it is quite cumbersome to lug around heavy bags that don’t necessarily carry things that you would absolutely require.
A seasoned traveller divides luggage into two basic categories: essential and luxury. For a trip like going to a destination wedding, you will need some luxury items to be a part of your packing. However, for trips taken solely for the pleasure of travelling, keeping your bags lightweight with only the essential items is the wiser choice.
The urban traveller would ideally like to pack up and carry everything that they have in their living apartment! But that is not possible, right. So you need to pick and choose. By asking our travel executives, we have compiled some packing must-haves for the urban traveller.
Chargers and Power Banks:
This one has become more important than ever before, especially if you are visiting remote destinations. Many of our trips at Udiron entail staying in remote locations overnight. You may not get the amount of electricity you would ideally need for recharging your phone or digital camera. Chargers and power banks are a life-saver.
It is true that different occasions call for different kinds of shoes. But you cannot pack everything on your shoe-rack, right? So, be sensible and pick up a pair of shoes that will hold good in different conditions, depending upon the trip you are taking. If it demands trekking, pick up suitable shoes and if you are only going on an urban visit, a less rugged pair of shoes will be enough.
Water Purifying Agents:
Always carry a small bottle of water purifying solution or agent. Usually we arrange for stays in hotels and homestays where drinking water is never a concern but it is always better to be safe than sorry. On the road, you may fill up your bottle somewhere which does not offer purified water. The purifying agent comes in handy then.
These essential items are must-haves in the bags of any urban traveller.
