Pack A Compass

    Black compass

    This is compass, whistle, thermometer, and magnifying glass all in one. I pack this in my bag whenever I travel.

    It can be used as a safety whistle to get attention. If you ever find yourself stuck in the woods and need to start a fire, the magnifying glass will be helpful.

    The compass comes in handy when trying to reorientate your sense of direction, especially if you have just come up to street level after riding in a subway tunnel.

    When my friends and I had just arrived in Budapest on an evening train from Vienna, we had to take the metro from the Budapest-Keleti Railway Terminal to our hostel. Having the compass helped us navigate our sense of direction when it was dark at night.
