Pointless Items Many Travelers Pack In Their Luggage

Pointless Items Many Travelers Pack In Their Luggage

Packing is one of the most annoying things to do regarding to travel. However, it is one of the most important things to do because you need proper logistic that last your trip. There are many travel items you are going to need whether or not you like them, in contrast, there are also items you want to bring even though you know they are pretty useless or pointless. Packing properly is important to help you travel more comfortably.

Travel items that are often pointless to pack

Many seasoned travelers suggest to pack light. It means you only pack items you are going to need and leave those valuable items at home. However, it is often for travelers to also pack pointless instead that bring no use for their trip. Here are some of the most common items considered pointless for travel:

Travel clothes for leisure trip

You will absolutely need travel clothes that can help protect your body from harsh weather, mosquito bites, and and those environmental hazards if you are planning for outdoor travel that include adventurous activities such as climbing to the mount Everest or exploring inside the jungle. However, these kind of clothes is unnecessary if you are planning for leisure trip where your destination is mostly indoor. In fact, it is best to pack the most comfortable clothes for this kind of trip. 

Money belt

Money belt

Many travelers like wearing money belt during their trip. It is of course useful in some senses such as for keeping your money close to you. However, it is also such an easy thing to be noticed by thieves and pickpockets. It is very obvious that people who wear money belt put their money and other valuable things inside. Almost everyone knows what it is and what is inside. It is easier for you to be targeted. 

Passport wallet

It is useful thing in a way. You can keep your passport and important documents inside during travel. However, it is such an inefficient item to bring for travel because when you need to take them out at the custom, it takes longer time for you to do it. You need manoeuvre the passport in and out of the case. It is not practical especially when you need to do to it quickly due to the long line. 

A bunch of toiletries

Toiletries are necessities for your trip. However, you don’t really have to pack a bunch of them. You don’t need your 10 step skincare products either. Also, if you book a hotel for your accommodation then you don’t really need to bring much. Soap, shampoos, toothpaste and even toothbrush are already prepared by the hotel for every guest. 

Travel clock

The point of having a clock is to let you know the time. However for the trip, you don’t really have to bring travel clock. You have got your phone to tell you the time and any other information. It is useful but not so much for more efficient trip. 

Scuba Diving Essentials for Beginner Girls!

Scuba Diving Essentials for Beginner Girls

Many beginners didn’t know what to expect when they first have scuba diving. It’s a new thing to do in a completely new world! Especially for women, who needs to figure out a lot of things in this once male-dominated sport. Things like how to keep your hair from tangled after some dives, how to keep you warm, and other things. So, whether it’s your first dive or you’ve been diving for a long time, these are some of the gear that we believe are essential for everyone going on a dive adventure:

Essential Scuba Diving Gears for Beginners

Find Great BCD for Women

In terms of comfort, safety, and practicality, BCs have come a long way since their inception. Manufacturers have dedicated special attention in recent years to making them more comfortable for ladies. We no longer have to put up with a BC riding up over our ears since it’s cut for a straight up-and-down body shape, or a horribly fitting men’s x-small with imbalanced weight pockets (owing to our bigger hips). Many modern women’s BCDs have been created with us in mind. This is a great scuba diving investment for beginners especially if you see diving in the long haul.

Regulator for Women

Women’s-specific regulators with brighter colors are increasingly available in the gear sector. To aid alleviate jaw fatigue, the regs usually include a smaller, lighter initial stage and second stage. Not only that, you can also make your regulator colorful. Most dive shops sell affordable hose covers, so if you really want everything to be pink — or any color in the rainbow — you can do it.

Find Fins for Women

Fins that fit properly are also an important feature of any diving gears for beginners. Fins that are too small might irritate the skin, while fins that are too large can slip off or create cramping. Because women’s usually have smaller and thinner feet, finding the right fin can be quite a task on itself.

Nice Supporting Items for Diving

Quick Dry Towel

Quick Dry Towel for scuba diving beginners

A quick dry towel is a small gear that would be very helpful. See, you’ll be getting in and out of the water all the time, and it can be chilly if there’s a breeze. You’ll be toasty again if you wrap yourself in a quick-drying towel.

Reef-Friendly Sunblock

We can get a great sun tan or a nasty burn by spending lengthy periods of time on boats moving between dive sites and swimming at shallow depths. As a result, sunscreen is one of the most crucial scuba diving necessities. Despite the fact that most divers wear wetsuits, your arms, neck, face, and legs are still exposed to the sun. Sunblock is essential for anyone participating in water-based activities since it protects your skin from the sun’s rays, making your time in the water much more enjoyable.

Rehydration Salt

Not many divers especially beginners are thinking about this. When you dive all day, water won’t be enough! Diving can be a thirsty sport because you can be submerged for up to an hour without drinking. Now imagine if you’re diving three or four times a day on a liveaboard! Take rehydration salts in addition to drinking plenty of fresh water. These provide you with a boost of energy in between dives and help me feel more refreshed and renewed afterwards.

If these aren’t available and you’re near a store or food stall, drink coconut water with lime or an electrolyte drink to stay hydrated.
