  Pack your travel essentials  
  BY THE WEEK BUREAU  
 
The happiest traveler is the one who gets much of his/her travel essentials fitted in a manageable portable bag pack. If the trip is just a day long or overnight, it’s usually easier to bag pack stuffs since one doesn’t need much of them. But if you’re traveling for a longer duration, you’re likely to incorporate more stuff in your bag pack. But trying to pick up everything in your bag might make it much heavy and difficult to move about during the travel.
The Week lists down some travel essentials that every traveler should have and ways to pack them into a lighter backpack.

Quick dry shirt and pants


You should avoid carrying clothes that weigh heavy or soak up much water when it gets wet. Jeans are heavier to wear and carry, and cotton pants and shirts take up a lot of time to dry. So light pants, leggings, and quick-dry shirts are the best travel wears. And since they can be easily washed and dried overnight, you won’t need to carry too many clothes. Plus, it’s always good to wear dark clothes during travel since they tend to get or look less dirty.

    Film review

    KATHMANDU, April 18:
    The Marvel World never looked this good. From crisp VFX to a cohesively structured story, The Winter Soldier combines thematic brilliance with top quality visuals. The first Captain America movie may have introduced a template super-hero, but this installment puts Captain America into a proper resilience test. Here, we get a closer picture of both Steve Rogers and his responsibilities as the dedicated super-soldier Captain America – a patriotic figure always on duty.

    More than just saving the world from an evil master-mind of a villain, The Winter Soldier serves a politically contextual stand on present day issues like unethical use of surveillance technology and the much anticipated debate on government secrets and the people’s right to information. Above all the chaos, Captain America is a metaphor for the endangered humanistic virtues of honesty and brotherhood. A reason why Captain appears more approachable than rest of the Avengers is that he thinks with a naïve but a truly justifiable standpoint. He’s the old-school definition of an ideal gentleman.   [More]
