Keep Your Travel Light and Right
We all look forward to a good and well-deserved vacation. But vacation brings with it lots of planning including packing your bags. Don’t let packing become a stressful experience right before you begin your break. Read on to know how to pack your bags and keep your luggage light.
Never pack more than two suitcases for two people. A better option is to carry a large suitcase in which you can accommodate all your things. This way you will not have to worry about counting your luggage at the airport and hotel lobby. It will also be easier to carry around one suitcase instead of lugging four or five small pieces of baggage. Just ensure that the suitcase isn’t too heavy and has wheels attached.
Don’t overstuff your baggage with toiletries. You can buy them along the way or use the ones available in your hotel room. A toothbrush, comb, soap and hand towel is all that you will need. You can carry your favorite deo or perfume if you are a regular user.
Don’t pack too many clothes and footwear. If there are clothes that you haven’t worn yet chances are you will not wear them doing the vacation. Instead carry clothes that are dark in color and are wrinkle free. This way you can repeat them without bothering about getting them washed and ironed. As for footwear, just carry two pairs; one to help you with your walking and the other for any special occasions that you might have planned.
Don’t carry too many books with you. One book is enough to keep you occupied when your travel. If you wish to you can buy more books during your travel. Carrying the required maps and your address and phone book is a good idea though. This way you are unlikely to lose your way and in case of emergencies you can get in touch with people who can help you out.
Check if you have any acquaintances who have travelled to the same place. This will help you gather information about things that you should be packing. Doing so will help you avoid carry unnecessary clothings and articles.
