Regardless of whether you are going to the sea for the first time, or whether you are already an experienced traveler, it is always useful to have at hand a list of things that will be useful to you during the trip.
1. Select a travel bag
Wherever you go, choose a travel bag that is versatile, lightweight and large enough to hold everything you need.
The most important decision you should make regarding luggage is to purchase a large, reliable bag. Traveling with luggage in a bag that has a broken wheel, a broken handle, or a zipper is the worst thing that can happen to you.
It is also important to choose a travel bag that matches the nature of your trip, holds all of your belongings, and is easy to carry.
Which bag to choose
- Travel bag on wheels. If you face it, a wheeled bag will be your best bet. You do not have to carry all the things on your back, especially if you know that you are going to travel around a city where there are paved roads and sidewalks.
- Four-wheeled trolley bag. When you have your bag full of wheels on wheels, the weight of your luggage can become indecently huge, especially if you have to travel long distances on foot. Think of a four-wheeled bag to eliminate the effect of gravity on your wrist and move the bag without extra effort.
- Wheeled backpack. If you are “lucky” to cross various types of terrain, including those not designed for “driving on wheels,” then a wheeled backpack would be a great option.
- Backpack for travel. If you know that you don’t need excess weight, traveling with a tourist backpack will mark your freedom of hands and maximum versatility.
- Handbag (shoulder bag, small backpack). Such a bag (backpack) can be a great addition to the main baggage. You will be able to carry the most necessary things in it at the resort, as well as put the hand luggage in it on the plane.
2. What clothes to take on the sea
If you need to pack a large number of things in a travel bag, trying to fit them can be an issue for you. A great way out of this situation would be to use compression or vacuum bags, which can reduce the volume of your clothes by more than 50%.
Don’t forget that at airports there are regulations that establish the maximum weight of baggage for free transportation, usually not exceeding 20 kg. for one person. Therefore, when choosing things, proceed from the principle of the greatest necessity.
