With summer just around the corner, you’re probably wanting to go and spend sometime outdoors. Winter’s departure is long overdue, and you may have even forgotten about some of the summer essentials you’ll need for even the most basic day travel — sunglasses, for example, which are so easy to forget about but their absence can turn even a stroll through the park into a nightmare.
