Sadly, I meant to post this before my two week trip, but the last minute packing and an unforeseen blistering fever and terrible cough filled the bits of time I had before my departure. It’s been more than a decade since I traveled to Asia. I planned on spending time with my beloved family and friends for more than two weeks.
Before jetsetting overseas, I created a list of necessities for venturing to a foreign country. Here are my top tidbits:
- Medicine: No matter where you go, it’s easy to pick up a bottle of Tylenol or DayQuil. However, I didn’t want to risk an upset stomach or killer headache without my typical meds. After all, I personally believe these kind of products differ slightly from the ones I would usually pick up at CVS. I packed a few drugs ranging from Advil to Tums just in case anything happened!
- Camera: A handful of my YouTuber viewers and blog readers ask what camera I typically use (unless otherwise noted someone took photos) and it’s this beautiful Canon G5X. The camera is portable and perfect for traveling since it’s light and easy to use.
- Caps: I packed a total of two caps with the intent on buying a few more there. I anticipated Korea to be cooler than it actually was, but Taipei felt like summer. I thought the humidity and rain would be a good reason to pull out headwear. A special thank you to Sugarloaf Social Club for sending me this dri-fit hat!
- Hoodie: How could I travel without a hoodie?! I debated taking my black Anti Social Social Club hoodie, but opted for my baby pink one to keep my cozy on my 14+ hour flight.
- Adidas Ultra Boosts: I walked endlessly in both Korea and Taipei with my comfiest sneaker. The black tones and low cut silhouette made these sneakers versatile for almost all the outfits I packed.
