When youre traveling, you hope that nothing will go wrong and that nothing unexpected will happen (unless its something fun). However, even if you plan your whole trip down to the very last detail, theres always a chance that something could happen. Its even more important to be prepared if youre doing anything risky or perhaps traveling somewhere more remote. If your plans fall through, you get lost or something else goes wrong, it will be reassuring to know that youre ready to face the new situation. While its difficult to be prepared for anything, there are some top things you can do.
Pack Multipurpose Items
Packing for your travels can be tough when you only have a limited amount of space. Whats essential to take with you and what can stay behind? One of the best ways to pack is to choose multifunctional items that you can use in a variety of ways. You can do this with clothes, for example, such as hiking pants that zip down to become shorts. If youre going camping, you can take a bowl that you can eat anything out of and even drink from instead of having multiple eating utensils. Even things that arent intended to be used in multiple ways can still be useful for various things.
Traveling can offer some amazing experiences. But there's always a chance that something unexpected could happen. So, while it's difficult to be prepared for everything, there are some top tips you can do to help when your traveling.

Have Emergency Shelter
An emergency shelter might not be something you need when youre on a city break, but if youre traveling somewhere a bit more remote, it can definitely come in handy. You can find some tips on portable emergency shelters from Prepared Bee if you want to find something suitable. You obviously dont want it to take up too much space, especially if theres a good chance you wont ever need to use it. However, if you do ever need it, youll be glad that you have it.
Take a First Aid Kit
If you get hurt while youre traveling, whether its a minor injury or something more serious, its always useful if you can patch yourself up. A first aid kit gives you some of the essentials you can use to clean, cover and wrap injuries. If its anything more serious, your first aid kit can at least give you a temporary solution until you can get proper medical attention. A good first aid kit doesnt need to be large. You can get many of the essential items into a small kit, including bandages and antiseptic wipes.
Carry a Water Bottle and Filter
Water is vital to survive anywhere. You can live much longer without food than you can without water. Finding yourself without clean water would definitely not be good, but you can be prepared. Carrying water is a good idea, but its heavy and you can soon run out. If you have a water filter and can find a water source, you can turn any water into water thats safe to drink.
So as you can see, you can be ready for anything when youre traveling by packing a few useful things. But please dont always expect the worst! Traveling can offer some amazing experiences. Yes, theres always a chance that something unexpected could happen. But its difficult to be prepared for everything. So hopefully these tips will hopefully help you tackle your bucket list travel items.
