6 Must-Haves On Your Overseas Packing List

 6 Must-Haves On Your Overseas Packing List

Going on a trip is an exciting time you’ll never forget. However, you have to be a bit extra prepared when going overseas. Here are 6 must-haves to put in your bags before you take off. 

Packing Cubes

While you may not be able to fit as much stuff into the bag, it’ll get you more organized. You can have your delicates in one place, jeans/shirts in another, and important documents/IDs in another area. This is perfect to help you get situated before heading to the airport.

Stainless Steel Water Bottle

This is great to keep your water cool. Also, it’s convenient when you’re in the lobby and want to get some clean tap water. Make sure you do your research on tap water first before drinking it in different countries. Some tap water isn’t made to be consumed. 

Good Walking Shoes

If you’re in a place that has a lot of historic places, chances are you’ll be doing a lot of walking. Make sure you have a comfortable set of shoes that’ll allow you to maneuver a bit easier. 


You may be in a place with a really warm climate and the sun can be unforgiving. Take some sunscreen with you to keep you safe if you decide to head to the pool or the beach.

Power Adapter

Each country has its own outlet setting. Make sure that you bring this because you’ll definitely need to charge your mobile devices. 

Small First Aid Kit

You might be going hiking or on a fishing trip. It’s a good idea to pack a first aid kit in case you get any scrapes or cuts. This will save you time and energy from scrambling to find a local store with those supplies.
