It’s always good to be super-prepared.
Travelling can be an exciting experience but it can also be a nightmare if something goes wrong and you’re not well prepared for it. Besides planning a fulfilling (as well as budget and time-friendly) itinerary, there are a couple of minor travelling tips that you’ll be thankful for below:
1. Less means more
Here’s every backpacker’s secret when it comes to packing: pack what you need, not what you think might come in handy – cos most of the time, those ‘handy’ items will never be used. Try to pack multi-functional items like a 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner to save space (for souvenirs, of course)!
2. Don’t rely on one method of mapping
You may think that one GPS app is enough but not quite. It’s always good to have at least two navigational devices or services as some of them might not be accurate or fully updated. And who knows? You might even find a quicker route on one compared with the other. Oh, and if you’re going on a long road trip, bring along a traditional paper map – just in case!
3. Sharing is good
Involve everyone in your travel party for the planning and preparations – and that should include packing too! Assign communal items to one person to pack. For example, person A packs all the toiletries, person B can be in charge of snacks and person C can get the beverages.
4. Pack nutrition for sustenance
When it comes to travelling, you should always be prepared for emergencies. It’s crucial to keep yourself well-nourished on your trip but last minute tour changes might interfere with your (eating) schedule. One source of nourishment you can count on anytime and anywhere is the new MILO® Stick Pack.
Available in an easy-to-carry and easy-to-use stick pack, this delicious boost of energy is great to take with you on your travels! Packed with nutrients and vitamins, it is the same delicious MILO® powder from the tin – perfect for the Malaysian traveller.
5. Choose dry or powdered over liquids
Packing liquids in your luggage when travelling can either become a messy or heavy affair. So why not save yourself the trouble and opt for powdered beverages instead? Sachets of MILO® will come in handy, being easy to pack, light and best of all, it tastes awesome!
