Slow Down To Pack Everything You Need

by Rob Carlton

Many times when people travel, they have their own opinions on what they can and can’t do without! In fact, many times people will over pack because they can not do without certain things than under pack!

If you go on a business trip or just on a pleasurable vacation, of course you want it to be memorable; however, you do not want to take too many things! When packing your bags, there are some tips that you should follow for when you go on vacation; for packing your “must have items”.

1. You will always want to make sure that you plan as well as write down your itinerary as to where you want to go and what you want to see. Then, you will have to make the proper arrangements.

2. You will want to make sure that you have all the essential items; such as passports, tickets, money, toothbrush, and clean clothing.

3. Make sure that you pack the proper clothing for the trip and weather. You will want to make sure that they can be worn any time and anywhere; no matter what the occasion.

4. Along with clothing, you will want to make sure that your shoes are comfortable and not hurting your feet; as you are not sure of how much walking you will be doing.

5. If you are on medication, make sure that you bring enough for the duration of the trip. Also, you should always bring insect repellent; as you never know when you’ll need it!

6. For your own precaution, it is best to make sure that your luggage locks and you have an extra set of keys; besides the originals. You never know what could happen!

7. It is always a great idea to have an extra bag with you to put gifts or souvenirs in when your traveling, rather than having to carry them in your hand all day!

8. Before going out, study a map to learn the area; so that you don’t become lost. It’s better to know your way around, than having to ask a complete stranger.

9. If you would rather drive than take public transportation, learn all the rules and regulations; as well as getting rental insurance.

10. Make sure that you properly label all the luggage so that it does not get confused with anyone else’s. Not only put your name but your address as well!

When going on your vacation, all you have to do is slow down to enjoy all the beautiful sights and have a pleasant trip!!
