When it’s time to head off on your long-awaited vacation, it’s important to make sure you don’t forget anything useful or important when doing your packing. Nobody loves to pack, it’s far too stressful, but it’s vital to dedicate enough time to it, so you don’t end up leaving without something you really needed.
We always think about the documents we need, e.g. passport, and of course, these are definitely must haves! Aside from that however, you need to next turn your attention to your health, and it goes in your hand luggage.
Regular medications should definitely be in your hand luggage, stored in the boxes with your name clearly printed on them, but what else do you need?
Don’t forget your sunglasses!
Sunglasses are not just about fashion, they’re about eye health too. Squinting too much in the sun because you’re trying not to wear them and risk suntan marks, simply gives you a headache and can cause damage to the fragile surface of your eyes. The answer is obviously to invest in a pair of high quality sunglasses, but if you regularly wear normal glasses throughout the day, the chances are that you’re going to need prescription sunglasses for your days in the sun.
Never fear! These are not the fashion-challenged designs of days gone by, and nowadays you can find highly fashionable, ultra-stylish, and cost-effective sunglasses for all prescription needs. There really is no reason to squint and cover your eyes for a second longer!
Remember to store your sunglasses in their case, to keep them safe from scratches and breakages, and put them in your hand luggage, ready to throw on when you immerge from the airport on arrival, probably shielding your eyes like a mole after hibernation, who hasn’t seen the sun for a while!
