Devon, like most places, has some unique qualities that necessitate an in-depth look. However, to explore its wonders to your hearts content, youll need to pack the right things, such as these:
When visiting Devon, you need to be prepared for sudden weather changes. Climate change can be felt in all parts of the world today, but Devon has been famous for abrupt weather shifts even before climate change became a global issue.
The wind can be fierce when you take a stroll on the shore. It is recommended that walkers pack some waterproof gear. Likewise, you should not underestimate the intensity of the sun. It is best to wear a sun hat and a good sunscreen whenever you want to take a stroll.
It is advisable to buy a cheap (yet dependable) mobile phone when you arrive at Devon, and do get a local number. You will be able to save a lot in your phone expenses. If you really want to use your phone, then it is recommended to buy a local SIM. Just make sure that its compatible with your mobile.
The one disadvantage of having a local number in Devon is that the people you left at home wont be able to reach you on your normal number, but social media and email can be used to contact you. You need a mobile phone with you when visiting different places in Devon in case you need some assistance, and it is practical to use the local number to avoid hassles with connections.
If you are travelling with children and youre with someone whos taking maintenance medicine (or perhaps youre the one who needs it), then it is prudent to pack everything you might need from the simplest allergy remedy to the most complex pills for heart disease. As they say, it pays to be ready, especially when it comes to health-related matters.
Devon is a beautiful place with sceneries that you would want to capture and immortalize in a frame. So, make sure to bring your camera along and capture all the breathtaking views that you see. Ask your hotel or local accommodation agency where the best views and vantage points are. Many sea view cottages in Devon have their own breathtaking views so you wont need to venture far from your vacation property.
Dont forget to bring along all important documents (passport, visa, insurance, and/or driving license). A European citizen is allowed to use his driving license in the UK, while other foreign nationals need to secure an international driving license. If a non-UK citizen brought a vehicle into the country, then aside from the driving license, he also needs to bring along the registration for the vehicle as well as the accompanying insurance documents.
The electricity supply all over Britain is 240 volts AC. Visitors who came from different parts of the world will need a plug adapter so they can use the electrical gadgets they carry. Plug adaptors are available in the UK, but it would still be more convenient to bring your own (one youve already tested). Also, do remember that it might be necessary to rely on a step-down converter if your electronics are rated at 110 volts.
To make your Devon vacation a priceless one, heres one last thing you should remember bringing extra cash is always a must.
