Planning a trip? Make sure you have the essentials in your wallet. Your ID, bank cards, a crayon, foreign currency... Wait, a crayon? Yup, you heard right. Some avid travelers swear by always keeping a crayon inside their wallets. Here’s why.Crayons can always write. If you need a writing utensil, they don’t need to be sharpened, and they never run out of ink. If you drop a pencil, the lead inside usually breaks, making it impossible to get that satisfying sharp point ever again. Traveling with one could jostle it a lot, meaning you’ll need to be sharpening, and sharpening, and sharpening. Pens and planes... not a great match. The rapidly changing air pressure in the cabin can cause your pen to burst, oozing ink onto all your belongings.
