3. A Book
Many hostels and camp-sites offer book swaps. It’s pretty self-explanatory. Leave a book, take a book. A great boredom buster at the airport or on the train. I’ve read some pretty weird yet enjoyable books from travelling which I probably wouldn’t have even picked up back home.
2. Hand Sanitiser
Clean water to wash your hands can be non-existent in some places I.E. India. It’s vital you clean your hands before you eat. Take this from someone who had food poisoning so had to be injected with emergency medicine on a 12 hour train ride from Mumbai to Goa. Not fun. Hand Sanitiser is so cheap, small and convenient so there’s really no excuse.
My number 1 travel essential. If you are staying in a shared dorm at a hostel, I guarantee there will be at least one snorer in your dorm. My earplugs have been a sleep-saver on many an occasion and my biggest regret when I open my bag to realise I’ve left them at home! :O
