Not gonna lie, even though traveling is fun and we all enjoy it, planning for it can be stressful if you don't take the time to prepare everything that you need.
As 2020 wraps up, it seems like we're going to be able to enjoy of our normal lives once again very soon, and honestly, we can't wait.
While you buy your tickets and pack your bags, we want to give you Opala For All's MUST NEEDS for traveling.
Quick disclaimer here, apart from all of the things we recommend, remember to always pack your mask and hand sanitizer when you travel, have fun but also stay safe! Let's begin.
Let's admit it, unless you're traveling for business (and even then, only SERIOUS business) You want to be as comfortable as possible. Of course you'd like to take a few outfits and rock your best style, but most of the time you want to be as relaxed as possible.
From the moment you leave your place, you should already be in joggers and an oversized shirt or sweater, who cares about what others say, right? What matters is you enjoying your trip.
Speaking of cozy clothes, take a look at Opala For All's collection, you won't regret it.
Podcasts or Books
You see, we included both because we know it really depends on what type of person you are. One thing's for sure though, you need entertainment, especially in those long flights or train rides.
Personally (Shez, Founder of Opala) I prefer podcasts, I love listening to those about basketball of entrepreneurship (Garyvee's for example). Generally speaking, if you listen to podcasts you can measure the episodes' length with the length of your trip and time can go by faster.
On the other hand, by reading a book, you can focus solely on reading it at your own pace and maybe even finishing one before your trip ends. As mentioned above, it really depends on the type of person you are.
Have you ever been in that situation where you're in the middle of a flight and you want to eat something small but you don't trust or like the snacks they have on the plane but then you buy something new and you end up not liking it and regretting you bought it?
Or how about being on a bus/train ride and not having anything to eat to make your ride better for you?
If you answered yes to any of these, then you know what to take on your next trip. Pack a bag of your favorite snacks because you know you'll need them. It literally can be chocolates, chips, fruits, a small salad, don't hold back, remember that you'll be the one eating them so pick wisely.
To sum it all up...
Traveling is a wonderful experience, but you need to prepare for it. Think of what you love, what can you take on the trip and pack it up!
It begins from the moment you leave your home and it ends when you go back, that entire time, you need to have the best time of your life.
One more thing we forgot, please take your phone charger. It's pretty obvious why.
