What To Bring On Your Spring Break 2014 Trip

Now that's we've given you some of the best places to visit, it's time to brainstorm what things you need to bring on your trip. First of all, don't forget to pack the sunscreen. For tropical vacations especially those close to the equator since the sun's rays are stronger. It is always important to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays. Next, choose comfortable clothing and spring break swimwear. You're going to be out and about all day and night, so you want to choose pieces and footwear that won't distract from your time. Also, don't forget a beach towel as you will be spending a lot of time on the beach and will want something to wrap off with after swimming or to sun tan on. When travelling on a trip far away from home, always pack a separate bag or backpack with your electronics, wallet, an extra pair of clothes, any chargers for your phone or mp3 players and other valuables such as jewelry. This ensures you have those things should your luggage get lost and need to be recovered. You will at least have a change of clothes to wear and anything expensive or valuable will be kept safe and in your hands at all times.
