It’s coming up to summertime so what better to do than to get out and about as much as possible. This year I’ve decided that I want to do everything from visiting theme parks, to camping and on top of all that getting a festival weekend in there.
So, with that in mind I decided to research what would be the most handy things for me to have. I plan to make sure that I’ve got everything I might possibly need, both for in the car and out of it. Waterproof coat; obvious. You never know what the weather is likely to be like so being prepared for it chucking it down not matter what I’m doing is always a saviour. There are loads of options out there so my advice would be to shop around, read the reviews and pick the one that suits you best.
Another sensible thing is getting sun cream. Essential. I definitely want to avoid getting sunburnt and aging faster than I need to. Again, like I’m sure you all know there are loads of different brands of sun cream out there and places you can pick it up from on and off the high street. My only advice if you have sensitive skin, is not overbuy if you’re yet to try a different brand to one you’ve had before. Find out if it works for you first before stocking up on it.
Next, sunglasses. Whether you need prescription glasses or not, wearing sunglasses is so helpful to protect your eyes from the direct sunlight when you’re shifting around outside. As well as that, if you’re driving, you’re hopefully going to be able to see better and drive more safely. Don’t forgot, if you usually wear glasses with prescription lenses in them, get to the glasses shop and pick your sunglasses up there; they’ll be created specifically for you based on your lens needs.
Now that’s great options specifically for me and my body but there’s loads of other stuff I need to think about as well. I mean, although I love walking and hiking in the middle of nowhere, generally I need to drive me car to get me out and about. Last year I ended up driving around loads of places, I was even going through fields! I seemed to discover that my cars tyres didn’t appear to want to avoid changing and, in all honesty, to summaries what the outcome was, I discovered that the air pressure in my tyres had got a bit low. Thankfully, I was on a campsite with someone who told me that they had a tyre inflator. Odd though I thought it was when they started telling me about it, I fell in love with it once I saw and used it! Not only can you plug them in in the car to power them, it tells you how much pressure is in the tyres and can pump them up if the pressures too low! On top of that, I also uncovered that it could be used to blow your airbed up for the tent, inflate the float for the swimming pool and so many other things I could go on and on! Blow up tent here I come. I’ve now got my own version, but when I ordered it I did find out that there are lots of different options available. Some focus specifically on pumping tyres but other can do all sorts, so my advice, do some research! Tents. I’d like to tell you about them but to be fair, I don’t actually know so much about them. All I can say is that the staff in camping shops are really, really handy to help you work out what you need and try and test some of the ones they’ve got up. My latest obsession is the inflatable tents, but at the minute I’m waiting to see what they’re like a bit more before I swap the one I currently know how to use!
