When we are planning on heading abroad for a short break or even a couple of months travelling, there are certain essentials that we must not forget.

First of all, it is worth working out whether you’ll need to apply for any kind of visa to enter the country or countries you plan on visiting.

Travel Essentials

Visa HQ is a very helpful site which lists the 123 countries which warrant a visa for any UK visitors which is well worth looking at before booking your flights anywhere.

Next up, you’ll want to consider the currency of the country or countries you’re visiting. If you’re heading to Europe it is easy to assume everyone uses the Euro, however, this is far from the truth. Take a look at this list on the European Union site for the full fun down.

Once you have your currency sorted, there’s lots of smaller things which aren’t vital to your stay, but will no doubt make a difference.

Things like plug adapters, correct clothing, sun cream won’t necessarily destroy your holiday if you forget them, but will certainly make things a lot more frustrating and expensive.

Another thing which we should all feel is important when travelling abroad is accepting the culture we are about to experience.

Travel of all about stepping outside the comfort of your daily norms and embracing another culture, from its food to its art, its music to the languages spoken.


Far too many English speakers have a sense of entitlement and get a little lazy when heading abroad, relying on the locals to speak a little English.

Despite being the third most popular language in the world, there are plenty of people who don’t speak it. For this reason, we should all perhaps make a little effort to learn a few words or phrases before setting off on holiday.

City Base Apartments have put together a handy infographic to help you on your way. Titled ‘Saying Hello In Each of Europe’s Many Languages’ it lists all of the languages and even gives the correct language for countries which share a common tongue.
