Here’s a list of things I personally pack for when I travel away on holiday with the lads.

HAND LUGGAGE (FOR THE FLIGHT)

#A small holdall (or rucksack)
Good for carrying bits for both the plane journey and beach bit (like sun lotion, towel etc)…

# Packet of chewing gum
Freshens breath, sharpens mind and eases flight nerves

# Cushion headrest thingy
Absolutely crucial! Flying long haul without it is suicide. (Check Ostrich Travel Pillows)

# iPad
Kills time on the plane

# Vest

# Tees

# Sliders
Sliders are a thing now, apparently. Havaianas were so last year.

# Sunnies
Needed for eye protection, and more importantly… Stealth perving.

GADGETS AND DEVICES

# All In One Universal Power Adapter thing
Not new, but can be bloody useful.

# Mini extension lead
Fixes the single plug socket dilemma you’ll face when staying at cheap hotels / hostels.

# Bose Mini Sound Link 2
One of the best speakers for its size. Tad more expensive than other speakers though – probably because it’s better.

PRODUCT, CREAMS and COSMETICS

# Osis Hair powder stuff
Great for adding body to hair (helps cover some receeding bits) – doesn’t break into liquid hand luggage allowance either.

# Aftershave smelly thing
Smelling fresh is a thing. This little gem is a life essential – I carry around with me almost everywhere I go.

#Sun lotion
Aussie Gold is one of the best creams on the market. Smells so good, I wanna eat myself after applying it!

After Sun
Keeping skin moisturised locks tan in, apparently. I use Aussie Gold, obvs.

Durex Condoms
Pack them. Repeat, pack them.

MONEY

Foreign SIM card (if travel outside EU zones)
Make sure your phone is unlocked before you leave UK or else it won’t work. You’ll save FORTUNES using a foreign sim which you can set up as soon as you land (well worth it).

Monzo bank card
It’s bright orange, has super cheap rates and is the coolest bank card on the market right now.
