Packing the right luggage can be a challenge. If you were able to put the necessary things in your backpack, you won’t be dragging a heavy luggage across hotels, airports, or buses. Aside from that, you won’t hunt for the missing essentials and spend extra if all the items that you needed are inside your luggage. Here is a list of things that you need to include when packing.
First, you have to choose whether you will be bringing duffel bags, wheeled backpacks, travel backpacks, a carry-on or a rolling luggage. You have to buy bags that come with warranties. Those with warranties are the bag brands that have confidence that you won’t get a broken zipper while traveling.
Buy compression bags. You can have a separate compression bag for tops and sweaters, pants and bottoms, and another for other clothes like scarves and socks. You can compress them while traveling, and the size will shrink from their original volume.
You should have a toiletry bag. This includes shampoos and conditioners, lotions, deodorants, sun blocks, toothbrushes, mouthwashes and other personal hygiene products. You can also add perfumes, razors, towels, scissors, nail cutters and detergents on the toiletry bag.
It is important to bring a first aid kit bag. This includes medicines for allergy, multivitamins, pain and fever pills, cold medicines, altitude and motion sickness pills, and eye drops.
You should have a carry-on bag. This should contain your phones, laptop, headphones, camera, and storage devices. You can add a travel pillow, books, water bottle, guide booklets, and cards in your carry-on bag.
It is important to have your travel documents in one place. These documents include your passports, cash and credit cards, bus, plane, or boat tickets, emergency contact lists of family members and other important persons, travel insurance information, personal IDs, visas, and hotel reservations. It is better if you have an online backup just in case something happens.
Wherever you are going, make sure to have fun and enjoy every minute of the trip. Also remember to check your things and make sure that you don’t forget anything if you are traveling to a new city. Make sure to respect the people and the culture of each place that you visit. If you have other personal things that you would like to add, you can list them down and include them on the checklist. Best of luck on your travels!
