Besides smartphone camera, make sure your digital camera’s battery is full and empty the storage of your camera to make room for new photos. You also have to bring a camera protector to make sure it safe.

4. Cheer Up the Kids
For you who bring the kids, you definitely don’t want to be disturbed by them. So, in order to keep the children happy, bring their favorite toys and snacks. All of the supporting stuff to ensure their comfort such as jacket and sleeping pillow will also make them calm in your car.

Smartphone will be very useful for your trip, especially if you want to explore around a city. For example, you can check the favorite culinary or shopping spot, turn on digital maps or GPS to lead you to the place, and voila! You can directly update about your trip on your social media. So, make sure your smartphone’s battery is available with bringing power bank or portable charger for cars. Of course, your internet data package should also be active.

7. Make Sure You Leave Your House Safe
Check whether you already put off the fire source such as stove, electrical source, and water source. Also make sure you lock all the windows and doors. If it is necessary, you can tell the security of your complex and neighbor that you are on holiday trip. But you don’t have to give your house key to them. Just leave your number so they can contact you in urgent needs. If you have pets, you can also put them in a pet shelter so you don’t have to worry about their needs and security. Enjoy your holiday!
