Conjure up the name of Australia, and people the world over will immediately see images of a wild, rugged country. Though there’s plenty of civilisation around our beautiful country, there still remains a vast, endless spread of untamed country. These epic landscapes and open vistas are at the heart of the adventurous outback spirit with which Australia is so indelibly linked.
This land, and so many others, are guaranteed to bring out the adventuresome soul in all of us. Perhaps you count yourself among the many who cannot help but heed the call of the wild. If so, you can’t head out empty-handed. You will need to stock up on the most vital travel essentials for adventurers. From survival basics to a high quality leather travel bag, here are the items you simply can’t journey without.
A Basic Set of Clothing
Minimalism is in, and for the adventure traveler, it makes particularly good sense. Exploring is about freedom and mobility--goals that are harder to achieve if your travel bag is weighed down by excess. Instead, take only what you need. Come up with a group of essentials: good quality, layerable items that will protect you against the elements.
Items to Guide Your Way
Any adventurer knows that navigation tools are of the utmost necessity when exploring. Maps, GPS, and/or a compass are great options to assist you in navigating wide open spaces. If you’re in a more urban environment, make sure that smartphone battery is charged! On more rustic occasions, lighting will be vital to carry as well. Be sure to pack lanterns, headlamps, and spare batteries or fuel for the above.
A Fundamental Survival Kit
Shelter (for lengthier trips) is a travel essential, as is an emergency shelter if you’re exploring the outdoors for any stretch of time. A lighter and matches will give you the necessary tools to light fires in order to stay warm. Food and water are must-haves; make sure your travel bag or backpack has enough space to bring ample stores of nutrition and hydration.
A Bag Which Epitomises the Aussie Spirit
You’ll need a first rate pack to carry all of this adventurer gear. Why not choose one that matches the rugged individualism of your life and your travels? A genuine leather travel bag is a fantastic option that is both practical and stylish. Durable and hearty, real leather--and especially goat leather bags--will go the distance. Don’t you deserve a bag that will be by your side through it all?
First Aid Supplies
To be truly prepared, an adventurer must carry the necessary items to manage any potential wounds, illness, or other mishaps. You should customise your first aid kit based on the location of your explorations. The outback of Australia, for instance, demands provisions that will be fairly different than those for a seafarer of the coast of Greenland. Plan ahead and prepare for what you may encounter on your path.
Now that you’re fully equipped and ready to go, it’s time to pack up that leather travel bag and hit the open road. Where will your journeys take you?
