6 travel hacks everyone should know

These easy solutions can bail you out of the most common troubles you might face while travelling.

Travel hacks

The season is just perfect for travelling -- the wind is chilly yet exciting, flowers are different yet charming, and a cup of tea accompanied by the view of snow-capped peaks is therapeutic for the senses. But a journey is not free from troubles. Here are some of the most common travel snags and their easy solutions. Because a traveller simply deserves to go out there and enjoy.
An upset stomach
Most of us have gone through this -- a sudden stomach upset in the middle of a journey with no medicines at hand. The trick is not to panic and look for a paan shop where ayurvedic digestive pills like hingoli are available. The other solution is to stop at a tea shop and get hold of some ginger and suck it slowly, sip some lemon extract or even have a cup of tea with a generous dose of black pepper in it.
Muscle pain
Road trips in high places with sinewy roads are a bliss for those bitten by the travel bug. But the bumpy ride can be painful for your muscles as well. Whenever there's a stop, do some basic stretching to ease the tension caused in the muscles.
Motion sickness
This is one of the most common problems that travellers face. The moment you feel the symptoms, try and sit in the front seat of the car, look straight and focus on a fixed point or the horizon. If this is not possible, then simply keep your eyes closed. This will delay the nausea or even stop it. You can also keep yourself distracted by listening to music.
Lost baggage
When things are not going your way, lost baggage can cause some serious problems right at the beginning of your trip. Lost baggage takes time to show up, so keep a small carry-on bag where you can stuff in the most essential location-specific things -- a business suit or a warm jacket, for instance.

Lost passport
Just a simple thought of it can ruin the best travel idea. If you ever lose a passport, never think it's the end of the world. The local police and your Embassy or Consulate will surely help. All you need to do is fill out some forms and complete some formalities to get a new passport. Keeping a scan or photocopy of your passport can make life easier.
Dehydration
This is a common problem that hikers might face and if proper care is not taken, it can lead to serious problems. The best way to combat this is to have small sips of water every 20 minutes. This keeps your body temperature constant in frequently changing temperatures at varying altitudes. But take care not to have too much of water at once.
