No matter how excited you are about the forthcoming holiday, you are reluctant even to think about packing everything. Yes, you always forget something no matter how hard you try to pick out all the necessary things. Or, even worse, you bring too many items with you and you never seem to use most of it. With a clever packing plan you are bound to be ready for the trip in no time.
The number of days and the number of things
Think wisely about the amount of staff you need to pack. It is not the same if you are going away with the kids only for the weekend or for a two week holiday. You do not need to take your entire closet with you no matter how stylish you want to look. Your children will not need all the toys they have to play with on a holiday in the sun. Be wise and pack only the necessary and let yourself and those travelling with you enjoy more in the sun and the soothing waters rather than playing on your gadgets. If you are going away only for 3-5 days use a medium size luggage. But for more than 7 days bring a large suitcase and pack what you need.
Look stylish and comfortable during the trip
Think about the kind of luggage you are going to wear during the trip. You should check all the items you are about to take with you in your hand luggage. Bring only the stuff you are going to need during the flight. However, consider the quality of hand luggage because you do not want it to break and make a mess out of your holiday that has not even started yet! Always choose leather goods that will take care of your belongings perfectly.
Which clothes to take
Bring one change of clothing per day you will be staying and two extra tops per day. If you are going on a long holiday you will of course have access to some kind of laundry service so do not bring too many clothes. What you definitely need is a swimming suit, towels, slippers and beach clothes. Always take some warmer clothes with you as you never know what kind of bad weather may ruin your holiday, but do not let it ruin your health. No one likes catching a cold on a holiday! Do not forget PJs. Think about the kind of activities you want to do during your stay and bring adequate shoes. If you are going hiking choose the right type of clothes and shoes.
Which cosmetics not to forget
You will need a mascara, foundation, toothpaste and a shampoo. Do not forget sunscreen and sunglasses. You will look trendy if you choose some black aviators and your eyes will stay protected too. Think about extra contacts you may need in case you lose the ones you regularly wear. Buy lotions for treating sunburns, insect bites and whatever may come up during the holiday. Antibacterial wipes are absolutely necessary.
What you need for your baby
If you are travelling with young children, especially babies what you should bring are diapers. Baby bottles and food you are going to feed them. Thing about the clothes for children as they are likely to get stained.
Do not bring entire IT equipment with you. You will only need your phone, charger, camera with batteries. If you do not need to work even when you are on holiday, forget about bringing your laptop and a tablet with you.
When packing for a holiday, bring only the necessary stuff with you. Choose the amount of stuff you are actually going to use during the stay, and pick the quality hand luggage that will carry your belongings.
