Booking a trip is great but most people hate packing for a trip. They have no idea what to bring and either overpack or forget everything!
Well.. I’m not one of those people..
I love packing! I always bring enough and never forget a thing!
So today I share my tips on what I do and how I start making a list for any trip
Any trip is different and you need different things for different occasions. If your going on a safari to Africa you need different things than going on summer holiday…
So my first tip is:
Google packing lists
for example if your are going on safari search google: Packing list for an African safari.. It is as simple as that! The internet it full of them.
I start my packing list a soon as I booked. That way I can think about what to buy and things I might need for the trip. If you do this one week before you rush yourself to much and get stressed out..
But.. I start my actual packing one week before. That way I know what’s in the laundry and I can get it clean before I go. No stinky clothes, no wet clothes and no disappointment because you can bring what you like. Everything clean and ready to go.
For makeup and toiletries; Have your toiletry bag empty next to you when you get ready and put your things in the bag you want and need for the trip. No need to grab everything at ones and forget your toothpaste.
