Hand towels

Try to make a habit to carry small hand towel in your backpack wherever you go in summers. It will help you to keep yourself dry which is really necessary to maintain the body hygiene while travelling.


Fruits and foods

Being “cool as a cucumber” might actually have some weight to it. Cucumbers are incredibly hydrating, and staying adequately hydrated during the summer months is beneficial. Snack on cucumber slices for some heat relief.  Peaches which are rich in vitamin A and C should not be missed out. Apples will cool you down and fill you up. They also contain a type of soluble fibre called Pectin, which has been found to stop hunger. Add some lemon which is enriched with vitamin C to your water to escape the boredom of the normal water. Citrus has a cooling effect on the body and promotes detoxification.


Water- Never to skip

One of the most essential things in the backpack should be Water. While travelling, you have to walk a lot, which consumes lots of your energy. But, we also need to consider that most lovely places are discovered while walking only. You should never miss drinking water. During travelling, water should be as important as breathing, else there is a chance for you to get dehydrated. Try to add Glucon-D in your water. Glucon-D is the preferred choice in summer when the scorching heat drains out body glucose. Glucon-D contains 99.4 percent glucose. It is easily absorbed by the body, thus giving instant energy and rejuvenation. It restores energy 2 times faster compared to ordinary drinks. Drink at least 3.5 L water every day in form of clear water, shakes/smoothies, juice/punch and curries.
