So, I know I’ve done a similar piece on my Top 7 Travel Essentials – but lezzzzzzbehonest – us girls need special attention. These are the small ‘life hacks’ that have brought me to tears at one time or another, but with proper preparation – could’ve been spared.
LADIES LISTEN UP – this one’s for all you vaginas out there…
Tip #1 – These fluffy pieces might cure cancer one day. You can use them for almost anything but they run out ASAP and are fairly pricey for a piece of candifloss – Cut that bitch up.
I’ve heard Europeans like it hairy, but trying to be a 70’s Porn Star never ends well (that’s for another blog post) – so keep the bushes to a minimum. I once got waxed by a Jamaican woman who personally hated my soul and wanted to cause me pain for having a vagina.
Right, so this is a sensitive topic but let’s just spit it out – Shacking up with a Thai flare dancer for two weeks might seem like a good idea at the time – but taking home a souvenir is just too much of a reminder. You will not get into trouble for carrying around a couple months supply and besides the obvious – it also helps you track your period.
To summarise – your skin will flare up = acne cream. Your feet are gonna die = blister plasters. Your lips are gonna look like cracked heels at some point because of the climate change = expensive lip cream. You obsessing over cracked lips and pimple = compact mirror. You need to pee and you find yourself looking at a hole in the ground = mobile toilet paper.
In South-East Asia I battled to find tampons and the ones I did find were extremely expensive! Pack in bulk to last you your entire trip – they don’t take up much space!
If you take Vitamins everyday at home – why would you all of a sudden not need them on your trip? Your body becomes used to the constant supply of goodness and without it, sickness! You pay SO much for your trip – why risk it by feeling under the weather? Take your supply with you!
Imagine trying to separate the colours of jelly-beans without compartments or containers – would be like trying to separate couples at Woodstock in the 60’s. On the right is an exfoliator that I use for its initial purpose and then as a carrier for smaller items – same with my drugs and this old sunglasses case on the left.
Similar to when people say drink in moderation – this time actually listen to the advice when it comes to toiletries. Steal the buggers. A large shower gel will feel like a Kardashian ego by the end of your trip.
I imagine Dr Steven fucking Hawking invented this device.
I believe a split nail caused one of the World Wars.
OK, so to ensure a successful trip – you need to follow Travel With Lamb on Instagram and you need to take the Lamb on your adventure. 100% success rate.
I LOVE all you strong females walking out your doors and seeing the world! I salute you and wanna join each and every one of you on your journey!
Til next time…
