Last week was Part A of essential items and supplies you’ll want to take on any coach journey. We’re back with a few more helpful tips, including some hints on hygiene and ensuring comfort for your entire coach journey!
A Comfortable Pair/Change of Shoes
While you may be planning on hitting the night clubs when you get there, for now comfort is most important and with long coach journeys you are often limited by the amount in which you can move.
Loose fitting clothes and comfortable shoes are a necessity; otherwise you may have a long and awkward ride ahead of you.
Never take your shoes off in on a coach, regardless of how ‘relaxed’ you may feel. Other passengers have no idea how clean you are, and they might be a little sensitive to the smell of your feet, even if you don’t think they smell a lot!
Make Good use of Comfort Stops
Even if you don’t need to use the facilities it is a good idea to take a few minutes stepping outside of the coach to stretch your legs. You can help keep the blood flowing through your feet and a few minutes of fresh air is often welcome while being cooped up on a coach ride!
Hygiene and Cleanliness
Though you may be fit as a fiddle when you start off your coach journey, there is no guarantee that you’ll end up that way at the end of your coach journey. It is always better to be prepared than to have to ask someone else for a paracetamol, a tissue or the like.
Hand sanitizers are also incredibly useful, particularly if you have concerns about the cleanliness of the pit stops, or if you have any sweet snacks on the journey.
Making sure that you are properly prepared for a long coach journey is essential, as there is nothing more stressful than needing a tissue or a drink of water and not being able to scratch that itch. Stay prepared!
