Having a highlighter on hand means that, by the time you’re reunited with your luggage, your trip already has an outline.

“A great thing to have is a pen,” says David.
“You’re going to have loads of things to fill out at the port or if you’re flying in, you might have to do a landing form so it’s always handy to have a pen on you.”
