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.
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.
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.
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.
