Here at Sub-Stances one of our passions is travel. It opens new doors and new friendship. Not to mention, the best stories always come from adventures. We love to travel, to see the world and to always explore. Below, we have comprised a list of travel must-haves, and gift ideas for your fellow travel-lovers!
1. Travel charger and universal adapters
Every time I travel, I seem to forget about needing an adapter for that county. This universal adapter and charger are two things that have saved me, more than once! Having a back-up charger is always a necessity - especially if you are young, traveling hostel style, and running from train to train. You never when you will find your next outlet, so having a fully charged backup battery, can really save the day!
2. Blanket Scarf
I went backpacking last winter break and I would not have made it without this blanket scarf. It was the best gift I’ve ever received. I used it as a blanket, a pillow, a rolling device for packing fragile things, cuddling, and of course, a scarf. Scarves keep you cozy, can be used for a variety of things and styles, and are easily packed!
3. Clean Canteen
Every traveler needs a water-bottle that they can rely on, that keeps things cool and is easy to carry around. Clean Canteen water bottles are the best given that they not only keep your water cold, or your hot drink hot for extended periods of time, but are also fit easily in a backpack. A water bottle truly is a gift that keeps giving. Every time your travel buddy takes a sip out of their new water bottle, they will have you in mind!
4. Polaroid Camera
Documenting your travels has to happen, but having a hard copy is even better. In a day and in an age where we have everything on our computer or phone, holding a physical picture makes the memories so much more previous. Plus, there is no better room decoration than a series of polaroid pictures.
