Your guidebook is your best resource for finding
important information such as places to stay, eat,
local customs, everything you need to know about
 h i                 h          i
the city or country that you're in.
            Money Belts
Money belts are great to store your passport, money,
and other essential documents. They fit snugly
under your clothes around your waist, and there's no
                      bi ih              i i
way someone can grab it without you noticing.
        Photocopies of
       Important Papers
Always make a photocopy of all your papers and
tickets, even your driver's license. Better safe than
sorry, and many companies require at least a
  h                  li h                    b
photocopy of your flight or your passport before
they'll give you assistance.
         Pen and Paper
Keep it on hand for writing down contact details of
people you meet along the way and for recording
your experiences. It's rewarding to read through a
     lj         h           b kh          d li
travel journey when you're back home and relive
your experiences.
         Pack Your Pills
If you are taking prescription medicine you
probably wouldn't forget to add it to your
international travel checklist. You should also pack
any over-the-counter medicine you take too, since it
can differ from country to country even if it is made
by the same company.
            Adapt with an
If you are looking to bring any electrical items like a
    li i      h id             l ti l            k
curling iron, hairdryer or an electrical razor make sure
they are portable. Keep in mind that European outlets
       t th          th            M t
are not the same as the US ones. Most overseas
locations have 220 volts, 50 Hz electricity. To help,
      h ld i k            i t fI t        ti l l t i l
you should pick up a variety of International electrical
outlet adapters.
   Remember Your Memory
If you know you will be taking a long trip you might
want to invest in a big memory card/ stick (e.g., 2 gig).
If that is still not enough you could also purchase a
memory reader, so you can free up the card for more
picture taking. Another thing that will help you
prepare for travel is a tote bag that's big enough to
hold your camera, extra memory cards and batteries.

           Gift List To Go
To avoid last minute gift-shopping make a list of all of
 h        l                     if f     f              i
the people you want to get gifts for. If you can, carry it
with you during the trip. Maybe even jot down what
     hi k h 'd
you think they'd want f           h     h
                        from where. That way you can
gradually fulfill your gift list and not have to worry
 b      ill i     h i          if h        i      b f
about pillaging the airport gift shop 5 minutes before
take off.
           Problems With
When you're backpacking through foreign countries
your luggage is your life. However, it's hard to keep
an eye on it all of the time, especially if you are
sleeping on a train. Then you're at the mercy of
pickpocketers. For this reason you should never keep
anything of value in the outside pockets. It's the first
place everyone will look. If you have something of
value (like a passport) keep it in a money belt.
         Leaks Can Be A
Packing can also present its own pitfalls, one of which
is th l k f t A                        d thi i t b
i the leak factor. An easy way around this is to buy a
smaller travel version of your favorite shampoos. They
     ll h             t th t       b ti htl     l df
usually have a screw top that can be tightly sealed for
travel. Remember to buy plastic bottles instead of
  l t li i t h tt i            Al t t         t
glass to eliminate shattering. Also, try to put
shampoos/liquid soaps in ziploc bags to prevent them
from leaking.
