What to Bring On Your Road Trip

So you’re going on a road trip. How exciting! You may be wondering, “What do I need to bring?”  Well if that is the case, we are here to help!

Here are five items you should pack before you hit the road.

1. Pick up a WiFi hotspot at the airport
Using a GPS system is invaluable while exploring any new area, especially a new country. However, to do this, having Wi-Fi will be imperative. With the assistance of WiFi at all times, you will always be connected to the internet and can ask for assistance at all times.

If you are traveling internationally then its best to get one at the airport

2. Snacks & Some stove top meals
Having good snacks can make or break a road trip. Packing foods that are nonperishable are great for long car rides.

Also if you venture a little far from any shops one night you will be glad you had that instant noodles to eat for the night, the cooking gear and water is in the van to make this on the fly. 

3. Clothes for all types of weather
Especially in Japan, the weather can be unpredictable, so visitors should be prepared for all types of weather. Some days it is cold and rainy, while the next could be hot and humid. Layering is a excellent way to adjust to this issue, especially if you are trying to pack light.
