They call it a bug. A fever. An itch. Traveling is always equated with a sickness or a malady for some reason. Maybe it's because once you get the "itch", you aren't satisfied until it's scratched. In my personal experience, it really does feel like a fever. An urge to travel comes over me in a wave and when that happens, I get out the iPad and start the research. It's like an uncontrollable urge to see the world, mountains, rivers, and landmarks, as well as meet new people, take in new customs, eat new food, and learn new information. Traveling changes your view of the world. It widens your perspective. It teaches you invaluable lessons. Traveling is truly, well, the best.
Whether you're traveling near, far, or often, you will need some supplies. Of course this will differ on whether you're road-tripping, camping, backpacking, flying, or catching a train. But if you travel often enough, you might as well invest in some reusable items that will last you for a while. So I've compiled an Amazon list to help you feel more prepared for your next adventure. Some of these may not fit your exact needs, but they may in the future! Happy shopping!
