When embarking on a journey by train there are a few things that you need to ensure are readily accessible as your rucksack is usually stowed away for the majority of the journey.
I have captured the things that I think are most important to have to hand below: (this is based on our journeys of between 6 – 37 hours)
- Essentials: Money, passport, ticket!
- Flip flops
- Toiletries including toilet paper, toothbrush & toothpaste
- Tea bags
- Hand sanitizer
- Book, diary & pen
- Sleeping bag liner
- Food & drink: Bottled water, fruit, salad, chicken, bread, chocolate – our food staples! Small snacks to share with others as a good ice breaker!
