Surely you don t want to be lost on the road when your signals run out. Therefore it is always advisable to bring a detailed route map for your trip. A map also helps in planning your daily itinerary and sticking to it.

* Sunglasses: A pair of chic and stylish sunglasses are the best way to beat the heat on any vacation.
