Any holiday brings with itself this the humongous task of packing. Haven’t we all been to several trips where we have not packed smartly and then ended up regretting it? The wrong things in the wrong bags, and not being able to prioritize what to take along and what to leave behind?
We cannot stress enough on this! Packing light is one of the most important things when it comes to travelling. There is no point taking along lots of clothes, shoes, accessories etc, when in reality you are hardly going to use them.
Taking the weather into consideration, you need to pack clothes according to the number of days you are going to spend on the holiday. For instance, beaches are going to be humid, so packing clothes that will absorb sweat will do you good.
Besides, it is essential to follow basic tricks such as rolling clothes and packing them and utilizing the space in the bags properly so that you don’t end up carrying extra bags just because you missed a few packing trips.
Going to a beach you shouldn’t forget your sunscreen. If you are looking to tan your skin, take a tanning lotion along. On the other hand keep something to keep sunburns at bay if your skin is sensitive. Besides, it is really important that you take along a medical kit. This should have the bare minimums such as band-aids and other material for first aid, should you meet with nasty surprises. A good moisturiser goes a long way and you cannot ignore the importance of a lip balm.
This is one of the most underrated elements of packing for a trip. You have to understand that a happy trip is directly proportional to comfortable footwear. Whether it is for the beach or for trekking nearby, for your evening outings and so on, you need to make sure that you pack the right kind of footwear to go with every outfit.
Packing according to airline standards
Depending upon where you are flying to and what airline you choose, you have to make sure that you pack accordingly. Packing according to the permitted baggage weight is important so that you don’t have to pay extra or potentially have to leave your belongings.
Choosing the right bag
However trivial it may seem, getting the right bag is as important as packing right. This is why you need to make sure that you select a trolley bag, a handbag or a rug sack that is easy to handle and has expandable space, because you are always going to come home with more articles in your bag, than the ones you left with.
