    Bring along your own water bottle

    Our bodies need approximately 2L of water daily. Carrying an empty bottle with you wherever you go will not only help you save money (bottled water is unbelievably expensive in touristy areas), but it is also economical as many hotels and restaurants now allow you to refill for free. You can also save money on your flights by bringing in an empty bottle, and refilling it only after passing security.

    Pack footwear in shower caps

    If you need to store your sandy shoes in your luggage together with your clothing, you are better off packing them in one of those free hotel shower caps so nothing else gets soiled in the process.
