I love to travel but sometimes having a big suitcase can get in the way! I always choose to pack a carry on item and backpack!
Here is my go to “packing list” that I wanted to share with you all. Keep in mind that you may not always need everything on this list or things may be missing depending on your personal preferences.
To stay ahead of the game, you can always check the weather of your destination as you may not need certain items depending on the location/season to where you are traveling!
A new item that I have been using are packing cubes which allows you to pack more in a small space. Packing cubes can be found online on amazon, Walmart and Marshalls/Winners and luggage stores! Prices range from 17-40$ CAD.
Another helpful packing tip would be to try your best to plan outfits that way you do NOT over pack.
Outfit for the plane ride back
Shorts/Pants/Leggings/Work out gear
Bathing suit /Cover up
Towels (if you choose not to use the ones at the hotel)
Toiletries: Makeup, Toothbrush/Paste, Shower Gel, Face Wash etc.
Accessories such as earrings (do not travel with something you would be scared to lose!)
Sun screen, Tanning oil, Bug spray
Adapter (may be needed in a different country)
Eye Contacts/Prescription Glasses/Sunglasses
Items to put in your carry on:
Electronics/Headphones & Your chargers
Identification such as your passport, nexus, health card and/or drivers license
First Aid Kit/Medication
** (keep in mind if you are not checking a luggage all items must be 100ml or less)
DO NOT FORGET TO PACK YOUR SMILE FOR PICTURES
