Remember your sunscreen and sunnies! - Geelong

Remember your sunscreen and sunnies!

Slip! Slop! Slap!

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Australians are taught from an early age to 'Slip! Slop! Slap!' - meaning to 'slip' on a t-shirt, 'slop' on some sunscreen and 'slap' on a hat. This is because of UV rays from the sun. You can buy all different kinds of sunscreen from any shop that sells toiletries (pharmacies/K-mart/Target/Supermarkets, etc.).

It is very important that in summer if you are spending a lot of time outside that you wear a hat and sunscreen.

Also, recently when in Finland I saw that they had sunscreen at amounts like UV6/8/10/12+. In Australia you should always get sunscreen that is UV30+, the Australian sun is strong, so make sure you protect your skin.

Easy to find anything you want

Luggage and bags: A backpack (although you can buy one in Geelong if you need it - pretty much you can get anything you need) - so that you can spend your day walking.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Sneakers are a good way to go. Bring a light jacket, except in summer on days you know are going to be hot - or dress in layers.

Photo Equipment: There are many camera stores throughout Geelong - so anything you need you should be able to find - (check my shopping page).
