Travel Advisor Shares Must-Pack Safety Item We Never Would've Thought Of

This is some seriously wise advice.

The best way to ensure that you're going to have an enjoyable trip is to be prepared for whatever traveling could throw your way. Sometimes, that means bringing an extra pair of shoes and a jacket in case it rains. Other times, that means accounting for the off-the-wall things that could go wrong when you're making your packing list.

Staying safe while traveling is so important as you visit an unfamiliar area, and thanks to @fearlessfreedomtravel on TikTok, we now know that this unexpected item is something we need to bring next time we go on vacation: A dental repair kit. At first we were confused, but after she explained herself, it actually makes a lot of sense.

She's not planning to use the kit for any dental procedures she might have while she's away from home — she's keeping it in her bag in case she breaks a tooth and can't get to a dentist until she arrives back home, which is some pretty wise forethought! And according to this frequent traveler, it's especially important on a cruise, where you could end up dealing with the exposed nerves from a broken tooth for days without a dentist on board.

And even if she doesn't end up using it, it's not like something this small would take up a lot of room in her suitcase.

This is especially important to her, because she has broken a tooth the day she was heading out on a cruise, and this little item ended up saving her vacation. 

It might seem random to some, but why not make it part of your toiletry kit? You don't need it 'til you need it... and when you do, you'll be so glad you have it.
