Cosas esenciales en el equipaje para un viaje en furgoneta camper

A lighter… It may seem incredible, but a simple lighter can ruin our trip in a CAMPER. We may have an adventurous spirit, and even like TV survival programs, but if you have to light up the camping-gas to cook spaghettis by rubbing two sticks… Let’s accept it, we are not freaks. We don’t want to eat worms, but if you are in the middle of nowhere, as it should be, in your Camper and excited because you are going have your meal with a view to the horizon, and you forgot a simple lighter… you’ll end up eating worms!

This is why before closing your suitcases desperate to start your hundred-mile trip as soon as possible, stop for a second, breathe and check.

One of the things I do is to imagine how a normal day of the trip would be like, from the moment we wake up until we go back to sleep at night. Let’s do it, and this way we’ll see everything that is important and, apparently, not important.

One of the things I do is to imagine how a normal day of the trip would be like, from the moment we wake up until we go back to sleep at night. Let’s do it, and this way we’ll see everything that is important and, apparently, not important.

Let’s begin our virtual day:

1— We wake up at 5am because an annoying mosquito is biting us hard. Solution: insect repellent (electronic or spray) and/or, in the absence of this, itch-soothing solution. You hadn’t thought of this, had you? Well, this is essential! And why not, it would also be wise to pack some kind of basic medicine.

2— We wake up at our desired time and, against all forecasts, it’s a terrible day. Let’s get dressed. We will omit the essential things, but it is possible that after a long walk or after taking a shower or when you are eating breakfast, you might want to be more comfortable with… Slippers or flip-flops for public showers? Yes, you’d better pack a pair, go. Don’t take too many clothes; but I recommend thinking of possible emergencies. Some kind of jacket? Wow, you almost forgot the jumper! August and in the South… You didn’t think of Sierra Nevada at 2,200 meters and 11 pm, and a sudden squall from the North; an after-dinner conversation and … no lighter. Pack some more warm clothes, you won’t regret it, and you will sure remember it if you don’t take it. (Foto paisaje frío) Ready? Dressed? And your couple tells you, with the wisdom of a grandparent: “Take a cap; it’ll stop raining and this afternoon we’ll have sun”. Do it; 5pm in August, for example, in Almería without a cap can ruin your adventure day. There is no adventurer without a hat, and there must be a reason…

3— So, let’s eat breakfast, get hold of your mobile phone, which has no battery because you forgot the charger… You know i
