Over the years, people have asked me what I use while traveling… So I decided to start putting a list together every time I think of a MUST HAVE while traveling. I am not receiving ANYTHING from these companies. Seriously. I just honestly love this stuff and couldn’t imagine traveling without it.
Rain Jacket & Liner
This one is important!
Always pack a 2 layer jacket:
(1) Thin rain jacket shell, with hood (the outer layer)
(2) Warm liner (the inner layer)
The reason you should have a jacket in two piece is because you can mix and match depending on how to weather changes.
With just two simple pieces, you’ll be prepared for any climate!
Cold & Wet: Both pieces together is the perfect winter jacket
Cold & Dry: Just the liner
Warm & Wet: Just the shell
Warm & Dry: No jacket needed!
The SteriPEN is a life saver – literally. I’ve used this all over the world and I have literally trusted my life with it.
When I was traveling in Fiji, everyone on the island was drinking the water – locals (of course) and tourists too. All the tourists were like “yeah it’s fine – all the locals say it’s fine” and maybe it was my traveler instinct that kicked in, or perhaps I just wanted to use my SteriPEN that I recently bought, but whatever it was, it saved me!
I took the extra 30 seconds to sit on the beach and purify my water with the SteriPEN and then I had perfectly clean water to drink. A few days later, EVERY tourist in the small beach town was deathly ill – I mean sitting in the bathroom, throwing up, diarrhea, or both…. for about 8 days straight. Some were even rushed to the hospital, and others immediately booked an expensive flight to New Zealand to seek medical treatment there because they were bleeding while going to the restroom!
I was really the only one of about 45 people that didn’t get sick…. I was snorkling and hanging out with the locals all week while. Thanks, SteriPEN! I will use you always <3
