Welcome To Your Adventure

 Updates will be posted here in chronological order

The first time we went to Italy we instantly fell in love and knew were needed to see more of this incredible country! We are absolutely thrilled to share our first time to the Amalfi Coast with you! 

We have seen first hand the need for travel insurance. Whether it be flight cancellations, theft, sickness, or pandemic issues, we now require each guest to purchase this. It is a very affordable and could save you a lot of headaches! My1FitLife uses World Nomads, however, please use which ever company you are comfortable with. Please make sure you fully understand your coverage to ensure all aspects are covered. 

We CANNOT stress that getting trip insurance is a must! It is normally relatively inexpensive and covers the cost of the trip and airfare. 

This is a REQUIRED ITEM AND YOUR POLICY NUMBER WILL NEED TO BE SUBMITTED. 

In 2016, we embarked on our first ever international My1FitLife Adventure to Costa Rica. It was an epic experience that filled us all with so much joy and stories for years to come (20-more minutes? Ha).

Since we are launching our first ever INTERNATIONAL FAMILY event, we figured what better spot than Costa Rica!!!

Our goal with this event is to practice what we preach and encourage the concept of memories and experiences over STUFF.

So, we decided to host this event over Christmas 2021!!

Getting Travel Insurance. Reasons why you need it!

This is another really important thing to do before you head off to the other side of the world. Having proper travel insurance can be a lifesaver if you’re unfortunate enough to have something go wrong on your trip. Hopefully, your trip will be trouble-free but having good travel insurance is an important safety net to have if you’re unlucky enough to have any problems. 

Here are a few situations when having good travel insurance can prove a real lifesaver:

Getting Sick Abroad

Getting ill in a foreign land where you don’t speak the lingo and where medical standards perhaps don’t quite match those in your own country is bad enough. Not being able to pay for your treatment is more like a disaster. In many countries medical fees for high-quality treatment are extortionate and if you don’t have the funds, you simply won’t get treated unless your situation is critical (in which case you risk running up huge debts). Having travel insurance that will cover your emergency medical costs is therefore vital.

Traveling during the Coronavirus Pandemic

Needless to say, this isn’t a great time to be backpacking or traveling for all kinds of reasons. Once the world starts to get a grip on Coronavirus, things will eventually return back to something like normality and inevitably people will start traveling again. However, this virus isn’t going to totally disappear any time soon, even with a vaccine.

From a backpackers’ perspective, this means even when the worst of the outbreak is over, it’s still possible that you could end up being forced into quarantine once entering a new country or in the worst-case scenario, you could become ill with COVID-19 somewhere with limited healthcare facilities. It’s at times like these when having proper travel insurance can make all the difference in terms of the treatment you will be able to get access to.

Like everybody else, travel insurance companies are still in the process of adapting to the coronavirus outbreak. As well as the medical T’s & C’s, also look out for their conditions in the eventuality that your airline goes bust or cancels flights. Both scenarios are highly likely to affect many travelers over the coming year or so.

Theft

Petty theft is often a big problem in popular travel destinations and cities all over the world. As a traveler, you are an attractive target for thieves. By applying common sense and looking after your belongings you can generally avoid being the victim of theft. That said, if the worst should happen, you can usually at least recover the value of your stolen belongings providing your insurance package covers theft.

Accidents

Accidents do happen whether you’re home or abroad. However, they are more likely on an active backpacking trip that may involve several adrenaline-pumping activities. Very occasionally (and it is very occasionally), accidents can leave travelers needing emergency and in very rare cases life-saving treatment.

Without proper travel insurance, you can end up with extreme medical bills that might take years to fully pay off if you’re uninsured.

Packing List

This is a general packing list. As we get closer we will be sending out more specific specific information. April is typically a high of 67 degrees F with a low of 58. Layers is your best friend! 

Comfortable walking shoes, flip-flops, and workout shoes

Comfortable clothes for the trip’s activities, be sure to bring plenty fitness-appropriate clothing so you’ll be prepared for all your classes and workouts.

T-Shirts and shorts/Sun Dresses (optional)

Bathing Suit / Sun protection / Sunglasses / Hat

Warm clothes/layers or a shawl for cooler night / light rain repellent jacket

Personal toiletries / medications / supplements / sunscreen

Medications, probiotics and anything your doctor suggests

Eye Pillow / ear plugs (especially if you are a light sleeper)

Digital camera to capture the amazing scenery and our memories

Health insurance card

Travel insurance emergency numbers

Hiking/walking shoes (Don’t need boots just a shoe with a good traction).

CHOOSE THE RIGHT TRAVEL BAG FOR YOUR TRIP
Before you even begin deciding what to pack, it’s important to find a travel bag that’s as versatile as you need it to be, while also fitting all your stuff and being easy to carry. Consider the length of your trip, as well as if it’s an international vacation if you’ll be using budget airlines, and your primary activities—all of these considerations impact which bag is best for your trip.

Wherever you’re planning to go, pick luggage that is versatile, lightweight, and big enough to hold all your travel essentials. The most important decision you’ll make is (as far as luggage is concerned) is buying a bag that has an awesome warranty. Traveling with a piece of luggage with a broken wheel, handle, or zipper is the absolute worst! Brands that back their gear with stand-up warranties build that promised durability into their gear.

Rolling Luggage: Let’s face it. Wheels are nice. There’s no need to carry all your gear on your back or via a duffle bag if you know you’re going to be traveling in a city where there are paved roads and sidewalks. You may also want to consider a bag with off-road wheels, making them extra durable for trips even when there isn’t a smooth path.

4-Wheels: As you fill up your wheeled luggage, weight can become a bit restrictive—especially if you have to walk long distances. Consider 4-wheels to keep the weight off your wrist and effortlessly roll your bag by your side.

Duffel Bag: These are simple, lightweight, and Eagle Creek’s duffel bags are crazy durable. Sling it over your shoulder, or put some wheels on it and get on your way. These are the most versatile travel solutions you can get, with everything from classic duffels to convertible backpacks, wheels, and more.

Wheeled Backpack: If you’ll be going through different types of terrain, or switching from airports to cobblestones, having a bag with the option to roll it or carry it like a backpack or duffel is really handy.

Travel Backpack: If you know you don’t want the extra weight of wheels, traveling with a travel pack is going to mean hands-free mobility and ultimate versatility.

Carry-On: Whenever possible, travel with carry-on luggage. It means you can save time at the airport, save on check-in fees, guarantee the airlines won’t lose your bag, have everything you need with you at all times, ensure you don’t have to wait at baggage claim…the list goes on and on.

 

ORGANIZE YOUR TRAVEL ESSENTIALS
If you plan to do lots of different types of activities on your vacation, you’ll have a fair amount of gear you need to pack into your suitcase. Keeping everything organized can be a challenge. One of the best things you can do when you’re packing for any trip—especially one that requires packing lots of layers—is to use packing organizers.

START WITH THIS CLOTHING PACKING LIST:
THE BASICS

  • Lightweight clothing that can be layered
  • Long-sleeved shirts
  • Sweaters or fleece jacket
  • T-shirts and tank tops (be respectful of the culture you are visiting)
  • Pants and/or shorts
  • Belt (check out this one for a ingenuitive money protection option)
  • Socks (wool socks are best for hiking and camping)
  • Comfortable walking shoes
  • Rain jacket, windbreaker, or umbrella
  • Pajamas/sleepwear
  • Underwear
  • Sunglasses and glasses case
  • Dresses and/or skirts
  • Jewelry (organize in a small cube or sac)
  • Hat or sun visor
  • Scarf or bandana
  • Swimsuit or swim trunks (consider a clean/dirty organizer)
  • Cell phone and charger
  • Travel speakers
  • Travel pillow, eye mask, and earplugs
  • Electric converters and adapters
  • Travel apps that will help with language, directions, money conversion, and digital journaling

 

You’ll want to pack smart (not lots of) clothing options if your trip will take you to a variety of places, or conversely if you will be navigating off the beaten path. Having a packing list with several options doesn’t mean you’ll need to over-pack. (And in fact, you shouldn’t.) Just pack smart. Include clothing that can be worn on your daily adventures and then dressed up slightly with a different pair of shoes and a scarf. Maybe a dress that becomes a skirt, or comfortable travel pants that can be dressed up for a day at the market. Also, consider clothing with SPF or mosquito repellency if you’ll be in environments where that would be beneficial.

PACK YOUR TOILETRY BAG
If you’re carrying on, keep your toiletry bag light and TSA-compliant. The TSA’s 3-1-1 rule makes it easy to remember: liquids, gels, aerosols, creams, and pastes must be 3.4 ounces (100ml) or less per container, and they must be stored in one quart-sized, clear plastic, zip-top bag. To make this as easy as possible for you, we have a toiletry set that includes four 3-ounce silicone bottles in a quart-sized clear pouch that’s wipeable and has a water-resistant zipper.

HERE’S A COMPLETE PACKING LIST OF TRAVEL ESSENTIALS FOR YOUR TOILETRY CASE:
THE TOILETRY BAG BASICS

  • Toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash
  • Hairbrush or comb, hair ties, barrettes/bobby pins
  • Deodorant
  • Shampoo and conditioner (Dr. Bronners is a good option all-in-one option for hair care, face wash, laundry, and more.)
  • Sunscreen and face lotion with SPF
  • Makeup packed in a washable sac
  • Face wash and/or makeup remover wipes and Q-tips
  • Nighttime moisturizer/lotion
  • Lip balm with SPF and lipstick or lip gloss
  • Personal hygiene items
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Extra contacts, solution, and contact case
  • Glasses and prescription sunglasses
  • Prescription medication with the label/script so that you can refill if needed and not be questioned by TSA.

 

TOILETRY BAG EXTRAS

  • Cologne/perfume
  • Personal mini mirror
  • Hair products like hairspray, hair gel, and beard oil
  • Clothesline and detergent
  • Shaving kit and extra razors
  • Sewing kit/clothing care kit, stain remover
  • Facial tissues and/or toilet paper
  • Travel Towel
  • Nail clippers and tweezers (optionally, scissors, which must be in checked luggage)

TRAVEL HEALTH

As soon as you decide to travel internationally, check the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s website for comprehensive information on travel vaccines, medicines, and local travel advice. Whether you decide to get vaccinated or not is your decision, but many vaccinations require administration two months before travel begins. So get informed! And if an emergency does happen, here’s everything you should know about travel clinics and handling medical emergencies abroad.

  • First aid kit (bandages, gauze, adhesives, etc.)
  • Personal prescriptions (copies of scripts)
  • Pain and fever relievers (also children’s strength if you are traveling with kids)
  • Thermometer
  • Cold medicines and throat lozenges
  • Diarrhea/laxative medicines
  • Oral rehydration salts
  • Allergy medicines
  • Hydrocortisone cream/antibacterial ointment
  • Multivitamins
  • Sunburn relief
  • Insect repellent/mosquito net/sting reliever
  • Motion sickness pills or bands
  • Altitude sickness pills (if you are planning to hike in higher altitudes)
  • Eye drops
  • Moleskin
  • Medicines and vaccinations specific to the region/activity

ADDITIONAL HEALTH ITEMS

  • Hand sanitizer or wet wipes
  • Prescriptions in the original packaging (you’ll want to make sure you have these in your carry-on bag just in case something were to happen to your checked luggage)
  • Sleeping medicines
  • Glasses and glasses case (email yourself a copy of your prescription, just in case)

Travel Tip: Your under-the-seat bag can hold a lot! Some travelers can even pack an entire trip in a small bag—at the very least learn how to put your under-the-seat bag to good use when packing for international travel.

PREPARE YOUR PERSONAL ITEM CARRY-ON BAG
The next thing you’ll want to do is prepare a packing list especially for your personal item carry-on bag with anything that you’ll want with you on the flight. It’s always a good idea to make sure you have an outfit (or two) and a few essential toiletries in your personal item just in case your luggage is lost.

If you’ll be traveling around to multiple destinations, make sure this small bag has items to keep you comfortable on any train, boat or bus rides. It’s always nice to have a bag that’s easy to access so you don’t have to get into your luggage each time you need your eye mask. But remember, you’ll be carrying all of this, so keep it light.

We recommend you consider using a small daypack, shoulder bag , or waist pack as your personal carry-on item. Here are some good things to include in your carry-on bag packing list:

TECHNOLOGY

  • Mobile device and charger
  • Laptop, iPad, or E-reader and charger(s)
  • Headphones (consider noise-reducing headphones if you’re sensitive to sound)
  • Camera and GoPro/video camera, memory card, and chargers
  • Electrical converters and adapters

TRAVEL COMFORT, ENTERTAINMENT, AND INFORMATION

  • Travel pillow, blanket, eye mask, and earplugs
  • Travel journal and pen (it’s awful when you forget your pen!)
  • Books and magazines
  • Deck of cards and travel games
  • Chapstick and lotion (t’s dry up there)
  • Water bottle (you’ll need to fill it up once you get through TSA)
  • Guide books, travel guides, maps, language guides, etc. (if you will need any of these upon arrival at your destination, put it in your carry-on)

COLLECT IMPORTANT TRAVEL DOCUMENTS, CASH, AND CREDIT CARDS
Start by collecting all of your important documents in a travel document organizer. (This travel organizer holds a passport, ID, credit cards, coins, documents, a boarding pass, and a pen!) By bringing all your important information together, will help ensure you have everything you need to get from one place to the next.

Not sure what you need? Here’s your international travel checklist, document-wise:

  • Passport/visa(s)
  • Personal ID/Student ID card
  • Frequent flyer card(s) and other loyalty program card numbers (ex: hotel chains and AAA)
  • Cash and credit card(s) (call your credit card companies before you travel to inform them of your travel, otherwise they might turn them off to prevent perceived fraud. Also, consider how travel hacking can save you money on the road!)
  • Health insurance cards/document(s)
  • Travel insurance information
  • Reservations and itineraries (print them and save them electronically for easy access)
  • Hotel and/or tour contact information
  • Transportation tickets (plane, train, bus, car, etc.)
  • Emergency contacts and important addresses
  • Copies of all these things in case you lose your wallet
  • Guide books and maps

Travel Tip: As soon as you book a trip, it’s a good idea to double-check that your passports and IDs aren’t expired and that they will not expire while you are traveling internationally. You’ll also want to inform your bank if you’re traveling abroad so they don’t assume fraudulent activity and freeze your credit card. Also consider emailing yourself a copy of your passport, driver’s license, medical cards, and itinerary, so if anything happens to them you’ll be able to access them online.

CONSIDER TRAVEL SECURITY
In most large cities, travelers should always be on the lookout for pickpockets. The easiest way to keep your belongings safe is to keep them hidden and close to you. One way to do this is to stash your valuables underneath your clothing. Another way is by locking your bags closed and using reflective accents to help folks see you at nighttime.

CONSIDER THIS LIST OF SAFETY TRAVEL ESSENTIALS:

  • Money belt or hidden pocket
  • Neck wallet
  • Undercover Bra Stash for credit cards and cash only
  • Leg wallet
  • Incognito All Terrain Money Belt which looks like a real belt!
  • Luggage Travel Lock
  • Reflective clothing and luggage accessories
  • Bring a headlamp or mini flashlight, better to be safe than unprepared

Wearing a money belt or neck wallet lets you keep your valuables close to your body and away from prying hands.

PREPARE YOUR HOME
If you’re going on an extended trip, it’s essential to get your home in order before you go. Here are some simple tasks to think through before you head to the airport. (And yes, this travel checklist also includes thinking through home care.)

  • Have the post office hold your mail
  • Stop newspaper delivery
  • Set up an email autoresponder (unless you plan to be connected)
  • Arrange for the care of pets, lawn, and plants
  • Pre-pay your bills
  • Prearrange school absences for children and get any home study assignments required
  • The empty refrigerator of this that will expire
  • Unplug appliances
  • Turn off heater/air conditioner
  • Turn down the water heater
  • Turn off washing machine taps
  • Lock all doors and windows
  • Set up timed light system
  • Store valuables in a safe place
  • Leave house key and trip itinerary with a trusted friend
  • Leave flight and hotel itineraries with a relative
  • Reconfirm/check-in online with the airline before you Uber, train, or shuttle to the airport

Travel Tip: If you will be gone for more than 30 days, it’s a good idea to check with your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance for specific instructions.

Wherever you are headed, you’re going to have a great time! Just make sure you think through your list of activities beforehand so that you’re able to bring everything you need and pick the right luggage. And pack light if you can using this ultimate packing checklist. It always helps with mobility. And remember, you’re a traveler: Respect the people and places you go to visit. Respect their customs, tip accordingly, try and learn their language, and truly immerse yourself in the culture. Travel changes us to be better than we were by opening our eyes and giving us newfound respect.
