Items such as recordings of traditional and contemporary music, picture books, arts and crafts, and small gifts. Items To Leave At Home Your itinerary with family member or friend Copy of your passport (photo and visa pages) and other travel documents Unneeded credit cards Expensive and religious jewelry Guidebook 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 over-the- 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 p Adaptor 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. Li t T G Gift List To Go gift- 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 Pockets 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 Letdown 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 leaking from leaking.
