Five Things You Must Never Forget Before You Travel

*Collaborative post.

Travelling is an adventure. There is no doubt about it that no matter where you choose to go or how you choose to do it, travelling is going to change your life. Every single trip to a new place changes you, and before you go on your next one you’re already picturing all of the amazing things that you’ll see and the people that you’ll meet. You’ll think of the accommodation, and where you’re going to be seated on the flight

Above everything else, you’ll be thinking about packing. This trip is going to change things for you, and you’re already feeling anxious about what to wear and what to bring on the plane for entertainment. What you should be concentrating on is what you must never forget before you travel anywhere. There are more important things than your sandals, so, let’s take a look at five things that you should not forget when you are off on an adventure!

  • Don’t Forget Your Chargers – Or Adapters

Wherever you end up in the world, you need to be able to charge your devices. This means bringing the wires, and bringing adapters so that your chargers work in those countries! You need to make a list of the devices that require charging, and then make sure that you tick them off.

 

  • Copy Your Travel Documents

It’s so important that you have everything when it comes to your travel documents, from an updated passport to your visas from E Visum Services. Without these essentials, you can be refused flight, and this is why it’s vital to have copies. If you did somehow manage to lose your paper copies, you can still get onto the flight! Hard copies and digital copies are a must if you want to be taken seriously by the airlines.

 

  • Know Where To Get Money Help

You’re on a holiday in a completely different country halfway around the world. Your bank card suddenly stops working and won’t let you draw any money out or pay by card for any goods and services. You are stuck. However, if you are smart and make a note of your banks’ customer service and helpline numbers, you’re going to be able to get some help. The same is true if you lose your bank card!

 

  • Get Insured

It’s an added expense, it’s not nice to pay out for, but without travel insurance you could lose a lot of money in adverse weather that cancels your flight. Or if you lose your luggage! You don’t want to fall ill on your trip and then end up with nothing. You need to get a good travel insurance policy so that you have backup in times of trouble.

 

  • Check Your Health

You may need to get vaccinations for the place you are travelling to, so get an appointment with your GP so you know whether or not it’s a necessity for you. You can also use the time to get a printout of any prescriptions that you have to bring with you.

Great places to visit in London

*Collaborative post.

We explored the city of London earlier this year and the kiddies loved it. London is a regular holiday destination for us as we lived there before and we have lots of family and friends around the city. The city is full of life and I love exploring all that it brings. It is too much of a busy city for me to live in but holidaying there works great as there are lots to see and do. Plus getting there is easy for us as we love a good old train ride every now and again. There is a quick train to Gatwick airport to London Victoria, so we can easily get  to the city of fun.

If you are thinking of exploring London, here are some great places to visit in London –

 

Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace is one place to visit when you are exploring London City. We visited Buckingham Palace this April and we loved it. It was fun to see the palace up close and the guards were fun to watch as well. The kiddies love it but were disappointed they didn’t get to see the Queen 😊

 

Get on a London Bus

Getting on a London Tour Bus is great for those visiting the city for the first time. The buses take you round the popular spots in the city and tell you all about the history behind every tourist attraction. It is a nice way to see the city but if you can’t get on any of the tour buses, you can easily see some parts of the city by popping on a regular London bus. That is what we did after exploring Buckingham Palace. We got a London Bus from the city centre and that took us to a different side of London.

The twins loved it as they were reading about London school and were thrilled to get on a London Red Bus. The best part for them was sitting on the top deck. That was the highlight of the day for them. Kids do love the littlest things.

Big Ben

Big Ben was a must for us too as the kiddies have read about it and wanted to see it in real life. Our tour of the city was more of an educational tour. It was based on all what they have read about London at school and it was fun for us the grownups to see the city through their eyes. The view was perfect. Big Ben is definitely a spot to explore if you plan on being around the area.

 

London Eye

I loved our time in the London Eye. It was a lot of fun and I cannot wait to get on it again. London Eye is definitely a must if you want to really be a tourist in London. It is worth visiting for sure.

 

Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds is another great spot in London to visit. The wax museum is filled up with popular faces and the kids (especially my daughter) love taking photos with them.
