When it comes to chartering a yacht, there are some items that will be on every packing list, and some that you won’t find anywhere. The one’s that you can’t find on any packing list, are the ones that you really need to bring with you. Here are five small items that you should never forget when packing for a yacht cruise.

Individual Water Bottles

In most cases, drinking water is going to be available from 1-gallon water bottles. While those will supply you with the water that you need, they’re not very portable. That can be a problem when you’re heading to shore. To make sure that each member of your party has water to drink, be sure to bring along individual refillable water bottles. Label them so that you can easily identify who the bottles belong to. The bottles can be refilled using the gallon containers that will be stored on-board the yacht.

Glow Sticks

If you’re yacht is going to dock overnight, you’ll want to go out and enjoy the nightlife at the ports you visit. Unfortunately, once you take the dingy into the port, it can be difficult to identify it in the dark. That can lead to some embarrassment as you try to find your way back to your dingy. You can make the task easier by hanging a glow stick from the bimini. The glow stick will guide you through the dark.

Dry Sacks

If you take the dingy to shore for a day on the beach, you’re going to need something to carry your wet clothes in on your return trip. That’s where the dry sack comes in. Dry sacks are lightweight and can be folded up small enough to fit in your pocket. Once you’re ready to use your dry sack, simply pull it out of your pocket and fill it with your wet swimwear.

Portable Thermometer

Your yacht is going to have a small onboard refrigerator that you’ll be able to stock with your own food. Unfortunately, the refrigerator will only work when the engine is running. If you’re going to be docked for an extended period of time, you’ll need to have a thermometer to monitor the temperature inside the refrigerator. That will spare you the stress of having your food spoil while the yacht is powered down you so can enjoy some fun in the water.

Motion Sickness Medication

If you’ve never been out to sea before, you’ll need to bring a supply of motion sickness medication. You never know when the movement of the waves is going to send you heaving over the edge of the boat. The motion sickness medication will calm your stomach so you can enjoy the rest of your vacation.

Now that you’re planning your first yacht cruise, be sure you’re ready for the adventure. The packing tips provided here will ensure that you don’t forget those little things that you’re going to need. Contact a business like Sea of Love for more information.

The Internet has changed business forever, and if your career allows it, you could use the Internet to bring your business on the go. Freelancers, contractors and Internet-based workers of all types have the freedom to work in any location they want, but having a place to stay remains an important barricade. As you plan your work away from home, consider a few long-term and holiday plans that could make your next trip more relaxing and more productive.

Know The Productivity Utilities And Utility Quality

If you have a telecommute-friendly (work from home) job, but are not technology-savvy, you’ll need to know everything that contributes to staying connected. Your Internet connectivity is a privilege if you’re not the owner, and even if you’re in charge of your own business, Internet failure means money loss. Furthermore, a call to technical support and even a few discounts may not recoup the lost productivity.

All Internet connection types–including wireless Internet–have different operating circumstances in different parts of the country. You may be in a swampy area that has corroded wiring or in a congested city that has constant signal interference for mobile data. You need to know the situation before signing a lease or putting down any money.

You can’t simply take the word of a leasing agent or the Internet Service Provider (ISP). Before you move in, the Internet connectivity needs to be tested for both speed and consistence–but keep in mind that speed is the more common test while connectivity goes ignored unless results are demanded specifically.

ping test is more accurate for such testing, and many consistency tests can be found at sites such as DSL Reports. If the Internet is slow or unstable, make sure it gets fixed before you move in or try to arrange for a mutual agreement that gives you some perks in exchange for the lower quality.

Your electrical connections need to be stable as well. Check every outlet for not only tightness and the ability to keep a plug in place, but for any power loss by observing a laptop or mobile device for about an hour.

Are Productivity Breaks In The Area?

On a working holiday, you should do more than go to nice beaches, then return to your temporary home for a bit of work. Look around the area for a few cafes that have Internet access and a small enough visitor size to stay on task. Larger venues are acceptable if you are able to get a private booth. Make sure that the venue is a decent walking distance from your temporary home in order to encourage movement without cutting productivity on travel time.

Luxury villas can be just as entertaining, especially if there are local restaurants and cafes that cater to the villa area. Be sure to ask about any parties, weddings or large groups that could be having a gathering in your area to either figure out ways to avoid distraction or to find a different home to live in.

Contact a luxury accommodations professional to find the perfect working quarters with a holiday charm.
