Travelling with a flashlight may seem obvious when you read it but do you have one in your travel bag? OR your daily purse/bag?

Flashlight for Safety – better safe than sorry is my motto

We live in a crazy world, and you never know when there is going to be a blackout, disaster…or zombie apocalypse.

That’s why when we are at home we have smoke detectors, flashlights, fire extinguishers, extra water and food. But for some reason, we go to work or vacation, and we don’t think about this, we become complacent, drop our guard, and we rely on others. The Calculated Traveller is always prepared.

A flashlight is also useful for:

  • Guiding your way to the washroom at night without disturbing your travel mate.
  • Looking at a map at night in the car while on your road trip.
  • Signalling for help.
  • Walking through a dark parking lot to your car.
  • Making scary faces by the camp fire.

The one I currently carry daily and when travelling is no longer available but it’s Maglite brand and looks like this one – it’s an affordable LED option and it looks to be a really good option. It’s 6″ high and fits in the pen slot of a bag.

Energizer headlampAnother option if you are camping or spending time outdoors, is to get yourself a headlamp. This is the Energizer HDL2BODBP Trailfinder LED Headlight “Bright white LED delivers 8 lumens. It comes with an easy on/off push button, and elastic head strap. Up to 10-hour run time with CR2032 coin-cell batteries. Includes 2 Energizer CR2032 coin cells

This way you are hands-free, although it does take up more room and makes you look like a coal miner. It does come in super handy when you want to read in the dark too!

Whatever you choose to light your way make sure the batteries are charged and that the darn thing works before you leave home! If the batteries aren’t it charged it might just become a paperweight.

Do you have a favourite flashlight that you carry? Let me know…its always great to have recommendations.
