What to bring with?
Luggage and bags: Luggage with wheels is always a good idea, wherever you are travelling.
If you are doing a night hike, bring a backpack and a water bottle.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Some ideas:
Light coloured clothing that doesnt absorb the sun as much as dark clothing.
Long-sleeved shirts and trousers will help protect you against the sun and possible insect bites.
A cap/hat that covers your head and neck.
Comfortable sandals and tackies/trainers/sneakers.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sun screen (at LEAST Factor 35 I would say), headache tablets, and usual little things like some plasters for blisters, cotton wool, germolene etc.
Photo Equipment: Your camera, with charger, and an appropriate plug extension/adaptor.
Miscellaneous: Have a map of the area handy, plus a local bird, flower and tree book. For this you also need a pair of good quality binoculars.Related to:
