10 things to prepare for your travels 

1. Vaccinations

As soon as you know where you are going back make sure you leave plenty of time to see your local GP/Nurse.  There are some vaccinations that come in doses, also researching the best price to get malaria tablets etc.

2. Backpack 

This will be your home, wardrobe, and travelling with you, invest in a good one. It’s also important to make sure you can carry the weight. 

3. GoPro 

It doesn’t have to be a brand new one, but the best investment for me personally has to be my GoPro. I’ve been able to take pictures and videos in water and whilst zip lining. 

4. First Aid Kit

You never know when you are going to hurt yourself. I’ve injured myself on boats, climbing and when I least expected to.

5. Insect Repellent 

You’re likely to get bitten, but how much can be determined by whether or not you use insect repellent. Especially if you are going hiking or staying in villages.

6. Travel Insurance

Whether you are an adrenaline junkie or not, travel insurance is a must. You’ll also want to make sure your luggage is covered. 

7. Pac a Mac 

Even if you are going to tropical destinations, it may rain. The great thing about Pac a Mac’s are you can easily back them away. 

8.  Passport with enough blank pages 

If you are visiting a lot of countries then you will need to make sure there is enough space on your passport. 

9. Visas 

There are some countries you will not be allowed to enter without a visa such as Australia. Others you can get at the border like Cambodia, Vietnam and Bali.

10. Emergency Fund 

If you are on a strict budget still allow an extra £500-£600 as an emergency fund. The amount of money I have spent on after bite creams, a new rucksack and a new charger was unexpected.
