Pack Your Bags — You’re Going on an Adventure!

Life is full of opportunities for adventure if you just look for them. This may seem like a platitude, but it’s true. Just think about your morning commute to the office as an example. Sure, you drive the same roads every day, in the same car, and it’s hardly the first time you sat in this traffic jam. Or, if you travel by public transport, you might know the train depot or station by heart. Still, with the right attitude, your morning can be an adventure. You never know who you’ll meet or what interesting artwork you’ll see on the subway walls. How can you know what the sky will look like as you walk to the train station? All of these are like tiny adventures. If you want to go on a bigger adventure, though, it’s good to know that the United States provides plenty of opportunities for embracing the unknown. From the Mississippi Delta to the Redwoods in Northern California, there’s plenty to see in the U.S. If you’re a music lover, for instance, the perfect place to head to is down south, to the birthplace of Blues music. Regardless, though, you’ll need a few key items when you pack your bags and heading out on the open road. Here are few things to throw in your duffel bag or suitcase.

Bring a Manicure Kit for Fab Nail Art Wherever You Are

Part of going on an adventure is not knowing what will happen, and you never know when you’ll need a little extra glitter. What if you’re enjoying interactive exhibits at a museum, and you find out that the same museum is hosting a party that evening? You need to have your glitter on hand—literally. Bringing stick on nail polish is a no-brainer for solving this problem. Nail polish strips weigh basically nothing and have a short dry time. Just pull out these strips and you’ll be the most glitter-tastic diva at any event.

Don’t Forget Travel Clothes for All Kinds of Weather

Wherever you’re headed likely has a different climate than where you are, which is why you need to pack your bags with all kinds of outfits. If you’re headed to Tunica, home of the Gateway to the Blues museum, you need outfits that will work with the legendary Mississippi Delta humidity. With cool, moisture-wicking clothes, you can focus on enjoying the story of the Blues and of great musical heroes, like B.B. King, instead of feeling like you’re melting into a puddle of warm water. Enjoy the sights and the visitor center with an appropriate wardrobe.

Bring Along an Extra Battery for any Digital Devices

You can’t exactly exchange digits with an interesting someone if your phone is dead, can you? Not to mention that you can get lost pretty easily without a reliable maps app, and many a visitor center will want you to confirm your email address for entrance. Don’t get so lost in the attractions of New York City, Los Angeles, or any other place you’re headed that you forget your extra batteries. Not just a charger, either—make sure that you have a durable external battery so that you never find yourself without your devices.

Whether you’re traveling the Mississippi Blues trail or crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, you need a few things with you. Bring a fabulous outfit and nail stickers for a special occasion, clothes that work for both warm and cool weather, and extra chargers for your devices. Most importantly, bring with you a willingness to try new things and be open to the unknown. With these tips, you’ll be ready to pack your bags for any adventure that comes your way.
