Ooh Damn! I Forgot ….
A little extra care and alertness will always make traveling happy and light and let you enjoy to the core. It’s always in the mind but when you open your luggage at the hotel, ooops you forgot!!! Let’s travel quickly about the extra care and alertness you need to keep in mind while traveling.
Making A list Before Traveling
Okay I know we are not in school anymore but it helps. Always make a list of things which is essential and try to make it as tight as possible. Desires and essential list should be made separately which will give an idea regarding the luggage capacity. It’s the best way to start!
Do not leave your place until you have packed your passport, travel documents, cash, debit/credit card. Check these items before you step out of the house.
Don’t forget the first aid kit
Headaches, fever, an upset stomach, allergies etc sounds iccky with holidays. Some countries limit medicines to prescription only. Better carry a small first aid kit than to board early to your hometown.
Before you even plan a vacation, check the weather if it is pleasant for traveling. In case, if you are on different purpose, make sure you carry appropriate clothing and items. Don’t let the weather ruin the purpose of visit.
Valuables On One Side
Set aside the expensive items in your hand bag or hotel locker. I’m sure you don’t want to lose your DSLR, cash, jwelleries etc. Check each time you leave a particular place or hotel.
Rolling your cloths is better option than keeping it straight fold. Rolling will give fair amount of space for other stuffs and will keep your cloths wrinkle free.
Keep one extra pair of cloths in your handbag in case you lose your luggage or accidentally you mess up with cloths while traveling. People who catches cold must always carry a jacket or sweater specially during the journey.
Limit your liquids
It’s heartbreaking when the airport security asks you to remove the perfumes, water bottle, lotions etc from the handbag. Avoid too much of liquid items in your luggage too. The leakage can ruin your cloths, accessories and your mood, the day you saved and awaited the most for.
Skip the shoes
Girls I know it’s little difficult to gulp. Curb your shoes with maximum 2-3, as it occupies lot of space.
Save bag space for all your holiday purchases
And there goes the list…your friends, family and your BAE. Always have room for souvenir and the said list than to listen for complaints for lifetime. Whether its duty free goods or holiday mementos, it’s inevitable that you’ll be bringing more back home with you than when you left.
Few accessories are important but no need to be packed as they are provided by the hotels. It will save you space too unless you are very conscious about it. Toothbrush, toothpaste, towels, shampoos etc are few things that are already available in the hotel. Let them stay at home.
