Traveling solo is a great experience! You are preparing to emerge yourself in a new environment and possibly a new culture. The goal is maximum enjoyment. Having items such as a first aid kit, power bank, TSA lock, and more will undoubtedly come in handy. Here is a list of 10 items all solo or not travelers need.
First Aid Kit
When exploring, you may have a little bump in the road that calls for a first aid kit (e.g. bandaid or pain medication). Save yourself some time and don’t travel home without it.
Portable Door Lock
This portable door lock is versatile and can fit in most doors, adding extra security while lodging. There are also door stoppers and door stop alarms designed to do the same.
This small, mighty safety alarm will give you peace of mind while traveling. With a push or pull ( both setting options), the alarm will activate and can deter attackers or alert others of an emergency.
A portable water bottle, canteen whatever you like to call it, will save you, especially while on an excursion. Not all tap water is safe to drink when traveling, so carrying a bottle will help prevent that mistake. .
Lightweight rain Coat
Getting caught in the may rain sounds nice, but while abroad can damper a trip. Having a lightweight raincoat can protect you from the element.
Carrying this compact item will come in handy when exploring. Just unfold the backpack when needed and refold when done just like that. If you want to go the extra mile, look into a water-resistant/ proof foldable backpack.
This power bank is a must have! You do not want your device(s) to die, so why not invest in one and charge your devices while on the go.
Portable Wash Bag
Okay, so if you have access to a washer and dryer, you can skip this, BUT for my travelers visiting places where those appliances aren’t as accessible, I highly recommend the wash bag. The wash bag definitely can in handy while in Bali. Follow the instructions, and you are good to go.
Keep your passport safe from packing damages and scammers with a passport holder. It will save you some time when wrestling through TSA.
Tsa Approved Travel Lock
If you don’t have a lock already built into your suitcase, traveling with a duffel or backpack, you want to ensure your items are secure.
