Tips For Long Train Rides You Didn’t Know
People who live in cities where “everyone” takes the train are often amused when they see a person who has no idea what a train ride is like. There are some of us who have never been on a train. There are even people who would have to drive to find a train. Below we will offer some tips that will help you if you happen to be new to train riding.
A person new to trains is quickly identified by their luggage. They appear to think that once they board the train, they will need everything they need for the next year of their life. Then once seated, they try to chain their luggage to their body somehow, never thinking that they may need to use the restroom.
You need a good, waterproof bag on wheels, a backpack, and a money belt. Talk to the experts at Unibaggage to guide you through this. If you have these three essentials, you will not have to check your luggage. You can put it overhead, and you can use your backpack as a travel pillow.
This is what goes in your money belt:
- A small amount of cash (enough for a taxi, hotel room, and meal)
- Credit cards
- Emergency medical cards
- Emergency contact person’s name and phone number
In your backpack or suitcase have a copy of everything that is in your money belt. Copy the front and back of each card. This is so you have the correct information to stop your accounts from being compromised if your money belt is stolen or lost. This will help you get replacements quickly, as well.
