Now that COVID vaccinations are underway, it won’t be long before you can start planning for your long-awaited travel. Since the pandemic halted your plans, no one can blame you if you want to go all in and book a luxurious getaway. You can go on a cruise around Australia or the Caribbean and have the time of your life. Besides, your trip could be a celebration for surviving the pandemic.
While the planning stage can be an exciting task, it can also be the most time-consuming, especially if you want to make sure that you are packing the right things for your trip. How do you tackle the joys of traveling and packing?
Check With Travel Authorities
If you are to travel by air, check with your travel authorities if there are several items that you cannot bring, particularly liquids such as alcohols and sanitizers. Ask about the limit, if they have any. If you are going on a cruise, it would also be wise to ask about weight limits. It will be such a hassle if you are going to spend money on excess baggage.
Plan Outfits By Day
One of the common mistakes that travelers make is packing too much. If you want to indulge in your trip, it would always be best to travel light. One way to tackle this is to plan your outfits by day. Think about what you will wear for a day at the beach and for exploring the city. This way, you can be sure that you will only have enough clothes in your baggage. Plus, you will have extra space for some souvenirs to bring back home.
Pro-Tip: Make sure to pack comfy black clothes. Not only is it highly versatile, but it can also easily hide stains, so you don’t have to worry about changing clothes should an accident happen.
Know Your Itinerary
For you to effectively plan your clothing per day, you should have an idea of your itinerary. You can’t go wrong if you pack classic clothing for men and women. However, it would be nice if you can dress up nicely for a cocktail party if the chance comes up. Plus, it would help you narrow down the clothing items you plan to bring.
Accessories can easily change up an outfit’s appearance. Say you packed a black tank top and beige pants, and someone suddenly invites you for a dinner out. You can simply wear your necklace and earrings, and you are good to go. Coordinating your jewelry with your outfit can quickly jazz up your look.
Whenever you are traveling, never forget your sunscreen. While you may be excited to explore new places and meet new faces, you should always make sure that your skin is protected at all times. If you don’t want your sunscreen to take up too much space in your luggage, you can transfer them into small containers that you can put in your carry-on bags. This way, they are easily accessible to you should you need to head out when the sun is at its brightest.
Leave Space for Electronics
Make sure that you have a separate bag where you can place all your electronics, including charging cords, power banks, and cameras. Charge your gadgets before packing them away, so you can use them when the need arises. Never forget to bring your universal adaptors.
Follow these packing tips, and you’ll surely have a blast on your next luxury getaway.
