Hey lovelies! Travelling is one of my favourite things to do, whether it's jetting out to an exotic country on a plane or just catching the train up to my busy hometown of London, I'm in love with the idea of discovering new places! So for this weeks post, I decided to do a 'Travel Backpack Essentials.' To be honest, most of the time I simply throw my phone and purse into my pocket and I'm good to go haha, but whenever I'm 'exploring', I always carry a little travel backpack with me for the day. In there is a bunch of my travel essentials, and I thought why not show you guys a few of them today!
~ My actual Backpack is by Hype in-case you were wondering! It's the perfect size and fits everything I need to carry (Plus I love the map design of it- it's even got a theme of travelling hehe!)
1. Headphones and Phone
I know, I know we shouldn't be so addicted to our phones... but for those long journeys when there's nothing to view but a train-tunnel, airport or motorway, I always bring my headphones and phone for music. I even have a little playlist called 'Boring Journeys' hehe!
2. My Travel Journal
I've been carrying this everywhere since I first got it (which must have been years ago really!) It's a little pocket-sized journal that I stick old tickets or write diary entries in whenever I travel to a new place, and I love it. It even has bits of writing in from a skiing holiday when I was 7, and I still carry it in my travel backpack today!
3. Detox Water
This is definitely an essential for me, especially when it's a walking or hiking kind of day. Half the time I'm too lazy to add anything different like lemon or berries to my water, but I find it so much more refreshing (and also good for your body!) to pack a detox water like this.
4. Bobby Pins, Lip Balm and Lipstick
This is probably the vainer-side of my travel backpack haha! In the front pocket of my bag, I always make sure to throw in a few bits and bobs like this, including my Eos Lipbalm, a few Bobby Pins to keep my hair out of my face, and my favourite Lip Stick (my current one is by Clinique)
And of course I take my Canon everywhere! There are so many photo opportunities when travelling and so this is probably my biggest essential! There's just something so satisfing about being able to capture a moment in a single shot which I love.
Hope you enjoyed reading this post, I found it so much fun to write! I'm actually thinking of changing the sorta 'themes' of my blog a little and focusing a little more on travel, lifestyle and food, which (I think you can tell from this post) I'm most passionate about really. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
And also, what are you guys up to this Easter? I break up from school in just a few days and I so looking forward to the Easter Hols. Bring on the Hot-cross Buns and Easter Eggs then haha!
QOTD: WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE KIND OF TRAVEL?
I love the idea of roadtrips!
