Pitch Perfect: Essential Supplies For Any Camping Trip!

Camping is one of the most fantastic ways to spend a vacation that there is. It’s a really great way to get away from all of the trapping of modern life and get back to basics for a little while. Of course, when it comes to getting away from it all, there’s a fine line between a pleasant break away from civilization, to being stuck in the wilderness. After all, unless you’re after a very specific kind of experience, you’re probably going to want at least a certain degree of comfort when you’re camping. With that in mind, here are some of the essential items that you need to take along on your camping trip.

Somewhere to sit

One of the best things about camping is that it gives you the chance to spend your time taking things slow and relaxing. Of course, it’s going to be pretty hard to relax if you haven’t got anywhere to sit down. There are plenty of camping chairs and loungers available but if you want something a little more luxurious and unusual, check out this

Somewhere to cook

As much as you might like to think so, there’s only so long that you can survive on potato chips. Eventually, you’re going to want to eat some real food. Of course, you’re hardly going to be in a position to get into a kitchen, so you’ll want to find a decent balance while you’re camping. A single flame stove is a fantastic option since it doesn’t take up much room, doesn’t need to be plugged in to function, and often helps you cook up some surprisingly effective meals! From fried breakfasts to hot soup, there are plenty of options that can make a camping stove one of the most essential items you could possibly take with you. Not only that but it means that you’re able to boil water without a kettle allowing you to wake yourself up every morning with a nice hot cup of coffee.

 

Layers of clothing

It doesn’t matter where you are or what time of year it is, at night your tent is going to get pretty cold. If you really want to stay warm and comfortable during the night then you’re going to want to back some warm, thermal clothes that will prevent your temperatures from dropping. You can also look at things like extra thick sleeping bags in order to help you get the best possible night’s sleep.

 

Something to read

One of the very best things about camping is that it gives you the chance to get away from all of the distractions of modern life. That being said, there’s a big difference between getting away from your smartphone for a while and giving up on modern life altogether. The majority of people are likely to start feeling a little bored sitting around in a tent waiting for something to happen. Because of that, you should make sure to bring something like a book with you, for your own entertainment. That way you can pass the time easily without having to resort to staring at a screen non-stop.

First Aid Kit Must-haves for Your Travels

16800384582_82bfe8ae70_z.jpg

 

Whenever you go traveling, you need to make sure that you’re going to be safe. Even if you’re going to a safe country, where you don’t need to worry about disease or dangerous animals, you should still think about how to stay healthy. You might only be walking around a safe city, but you could still fall over or get sunburn. There are lots of useful things you could pack into a first aid kit, but you don’t need to take too much with you. Even if you only want to take a small bag, you can fit a range of handy medications and supplies in it. You can start off by buying a ready-made first aid kit, but you might need to add some of the following things.

 

Supplies for Treating Injuries

 

There are lots of ways you can hurt yourself when you’re traveling, from sunburn to cuts, bruises and even sprains. Having a few basic supplies makes it easy to take care of simple things without having to search for someone to help you. For example, antiseptic wipes and band-aids will help you clean out a cut and keep it clean. A couple of different types of bandages can help with bigger wounds or perhaps with strains to joints or muscles. Remember to also pack a pair of small scissors so that you can cut things to size.

 

Preventative Medications

 

There are some important medications you might need to take to stop yourself getting sick. In some places, you might need to get a prescription for Malarone malaria tablets so you can reduce the risk of getting malaria. Destinations where there might be a risk include a number of countries, including some in South America, Asia and Africa. Another preventative medication you could need in some places is altitude sickness tablets. If you’re planning to climb any mountains, they can help to prevent the symptoms of altitude sickness by making it easier for your body to absorb oxygen. Don’t forget to take any usual medications you take too, such as asthma inhalers. Also, remember that anything that protects you from the sun (or the cold) will help to prevent illness and injury too.

 

 

Painkillers

 

A headache might not be the end of the world, but it can put a damper on your travels. If you want to treat aches and pains, it’s always useful to have painkillers on you. While you can pick them up in a pharmacy when you get to your destination, it’s easier to have them on you. Plus, you might be going somewhere more remote. Blister packs will keep each pill separate so that they’re less affected by moisture. Be careful in some Arab countries, as any painkillers containing codeine could get you in trouble with the law.

 

Digestive Medications

 

All kinds of things can go wrong with your digestion, especially when you’re traveling and eating unfamiliar foods. Whether you’re feeling nervous or you’ve eaten something you shouldn’t have, some handy medications to treat your tummy can help you feel better. Medicines for diarrhea and constipation are useful, as are medicines for heartburn and indigestion. It’s also a good idea to have something to help replace electrolytes if you lose fluids through vomiting or diarrhea.

 

Practising Safe Personal Intimacy

 

Traveling can mean meeting new people or perhaps traveling with your partner. Even if you’re not expecting to have intimacy with anyone on your travels, it pays to be cautious. You should take whatever precautions you do at home, from continuing the use of birth control medications to using condoms. It’s often a good idea to buy condoms at home so that you know they’re good quality. Condoms are the best way to prevent both pregnancy and STD, so make sure you pack some.
 

 

 

Water Purification Tablets

 

In many places around the world, the water in homes and other buildings is perfectly safe to drink. However, there are some places where you need to exercise more caution. You might decide to stick to drinking purchased bottled water. However, it’s also useful to have a water purification system or tablets with you. These can also be used if you’re camping or out in the wilderness and need to purify fresh water before drinking it. You can find them in pharmacies as well as outdoor stores. You can use iodine tablets, special filter devices, or chlorine tablets.

 

Taking your own first aid kit on your travels helps you to be more self-sufficient. You can take care of a range of problems on your own and help others too.

Family-Friendly Vacation Ideas

When you’re looking to take a trip with your whole family, deciding where to head is always a challenge. You have to find a place that is family-friendly, and able to keep everyone entertained throughout the duration of your stay. That’s something that is never easy to do. So, if you’re still looking for some ideas for where your family should visit this summer, the ideas below might help you out. Each of them presents a great travel experience suitable for most families.

Costa Rica


The great thing about Costa Rica is the location’s varied and interesting landscape. The natural wonders that you will find in this part of the world will thrill any young child. And they’re no less thrilling for the adults either. So, you should definitely consider this option when you’re thinking of somewhere to visit nex with your family. It’s a place that many people decide to go to with their families, and it’s one of the safest destinations in South America too. On top of all, the beaches are great for people who want nothing more than sun, sea and sand.


St. Lucia


St. Lucia has a lot to offer families who are looking to get to the most luxurious experience possible from their next vacation. There are plenty of resorts that are geared towards the needs of families. You just need to make sure that you look at the details and that you’re definitely opting for one of the resorts that’s family-oriented. Cotton Bay Village is considered one of the best. The on-site facilities are clearly designed to keep children happy and entertained. But it also has the kind of relaxing setting that many parents crave when they go on vacation.


Orlando, Florida


Let’s face it; most kids want to go to Orlando, Florida. The main pull of the location is, of course, Disneyland. It’s a magical wonderland that is truly impressive. People who go there never forget the experience, and it’s not hard to see why. However, there is more to Orlando, Florida than Disneyland. You can stay in a place like Westgate Reservations, and visit some of the fantastic locations that this part of the world has to offer. If you get your planning right, you should be able to strike a balance between the kid-friendly activities at Disneyland and the other options too.


Barcelona

If you’re looking for a city break to take with the family, you should look no further than Barcelona. It’s a city like no other. Gaudi’s magnificent architecture is fantastical and strange, and it can be seen all over the city. It makes it feel like you’re walking through a fairy tale at times. Maybe that’s why young children enjoy the city so much. And there are plenty of other things for them to do and explore as well. At the same time, there are plenty of galleries, museums and other cultural attractions to keep the parents and adults satisfied during the trip. Everyone’s a winner.

Tips to Enjoy Your Short Layover Inside The Airport

Every traveler will know that there are times when not all the flights they can book are direct ones, meaning, no stop overs. There are many reasons why some travelers choose to travel with stopovers because of time difference, physical exertion to go through long haul flights, cheaper fares, or the schedule does not work well with the preferred time of the traveler. What ever the reasons are for choosing a stopover over a direct flight, here are simple and very useful tips to enjoy the few hours you have inside a certain airport during your layover (granting you cannot leave the airport due to time constraints).

Check out the Duty Free Shop

Did you forget to buy something special for your family back home? How about checking out the shopping trends in that particular layover destination or buy a simple token for yourself while you are in a new airport in a different city or country?

Check out hot selling items in that particular Duty Free shop and you can compare them once you are in your destination or back home. You might even be lucky to snag discounts or deals in the Duty Free where you are having a stopover because some Duty Free shops run regular sales.

Grab a grub at one of the restaurants

We sometime need a break from airline food so my family and I usually buy food from the foodcourt or restaurants. Although skipping meals in the airplane is complete your choice and really mandatory for this matter. If you feel like trying out a different cuisine or want to check how the meal tastes like in a certain food outlet then dining during your stopover is another choice you can make while making the most of your stopover.


Relax at the Spa 

Yes, there are spas in most airports around the world; and no, they are not only for First and Business Class passengers. There are dedicated spas and lounges for the elite travelers but for people like us who travel coach, we can also enjoy the relaxing services offered at the spa in the airport. An example of this is Abu Dhabi’s Tosa Spa in Terminal 3.

XpressSpa has plenty of accessible spas for travelers to use around the US, in Amsterdam, and in Dubai. Their spas are open to all kinds of travelers where you can enjoy a quick mani/pedi, hydrating facials, and even massages.

Take a walk

Sitting in a tight quarter inside the airplane can be very taxing. You need to get that circulation moving so the best way to do that is to also move. While some airports have gym facilities that are available to business and first class passengers, other travelers may decide to brisk walk around. You don’t need your active wear to be stretch those legs and walk; however, I hope you are not wearing those killer stilettos while traveling too (trust me, there are people who wear stilettos while traveling).

Read a good book

Have you been trying so hard to read that book you told yourself but never had the chance to or stuck in that same page? Well, your few hours in the airport may just be the right thing to have to get on with your reading.

If your trip has to have a layover and this is nothing you can beat, just enjoy the few hours you have inside the airport to unwind and discover new things about the airport. You will be surprised to know that there are many ways to utilise the time that you have while waiting for your next flight. Enjoy it!
