What to Pack For a Road Trip

If you are a travel enthusiast like myself, you have got to love road trips. They do not necessarily have to be so long, they could be for a day or more depending on your finances and the amount of free time on your hands. If you have never gone on a road trip or if you and a couple of friends will be going onto one soon, here are a few things you need to pack aside from the basic essentials for your hygiene;


Vests should be part of the clothes that you carry because you do not want to have the burden or heavy clothes when the temperatures rise. On a road trip, you are likely to pass through different regions whose temperatures you may not know so carry vests just to be on the safe side.


In the event that it is cold, your jacket should be your best friend. Carry those warm jackets/ sweaters not the ones that are for showbiz because when it gets cold, it really gets cold.


Sun glasses

These should always be in your bag when you are moving around town so there is no way you should forget them. They add a sense of style and edge to whatever look you are trying to have, and they also help you hide your eyes with bags in case you fail to sleep.



These are optional depending on where you are going. If you will do nature walks or hike, they are the ideal shoes for you however if you are going to a sandy place, you might want to carry open flats instead.

Swim suits

You can never know when the plan to swim will come up so always pack a swim suit in your bag.


Because the temperatures are unpredictable, shorts are the ideal. They are also more comfortable than the trousers since you are going to be on the journey for a long time.

You can get most of these attires from Twambale Apparel on Mabirizi complex L1-3. You the pulsers get a 20% on customized outifts from there. Dial *157*4# and get your discount code as you plan for your road trip.

Pulse MCM: Meet Ghulam, a Jack of All Fashion Trends

An ambitious young man who picks inspiration from his sisters and works extremely hard, in the most fun ways around his environment to make his journey to his goals worthwhile; Ghulam Lamella is cut from just that type of cloth. If he had a spirit animal, I suppose most people would say that it’d be a puppy-He’s just that lovable. But what people don’t know is that he’s more akin to a lion.

His fashion sense is one you would suspect is adopted from international runways. Ghulam’s style is out of your normal. He is not your typical ordinary guy. He is as unique as whoever dons the Twambale Apparel from Pulse. His ever clean look and perfect scent that radiate off of him come so naturally to blend. Donning the latest labels every now and then, it’s understandable why the cameras love him. He’s ever setting goals for the young lads fashion wise but nothing to worry about becausethe good news is Twambale Apparel from Pulse has got you covered.

His physique suits perfectly as a fashion muse for every piece of cloth that falls onto his body. He takes the ‘slay king’ in him extremely above average.

This Afro-Asian is what many people describe as an instagram model. Does he get paid for it? We do not know. But while I was burning my pulse bundles scrolling through his profile, I totally believed that there’s such thing as instagram models. He is such a lily for the camera. Popularly known as Ghulam Speed, you can check him out at @ghulam_speed

When we asked his friends about him, many gave a similar comment. “He is an extremely friendly guy that is so focused about his goals. You see him slaying around but that’s because one of his many dreams is to own a fashion house.” They said

Young as he is in his f.6 vacation, Ghulam has got his vision set out. Age should never be a limiting factor for anyone that wishes to pursue big dreams. We wish him all the best as he sets out for his goals.

He expressed their delight at the partnership with MTN Uganda, believing that they’ve hit the right cord: “We target the youth looking for casual simple outfits on the go such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, snapbacks (hats) and anything along those lines”

“Our partnership with MTN is a great thing, firstly, it highlights how young start-up companies can collaborate with corporate companies to harness the power of the internet in the development of online businesses. Secondly, our clothing line targets a unique, fresh and dynamic community of like-minded people – who we have found in MTN Pulse” added Mr. Mubanza.
