Tips on Making a Packing List for Travelling
Know your destination- First of all, it is very important to make a clear picture in your mind that what exactly is your destination like and its climatic conditions. For example, you should know whether it is a cool or warm or humid place. It will help you set an idea in your mind about what you need to pack according to the weather and visiting places of your destination.
Categorization- Go for the basic departments that need to be considered while going for a vacation such as, basic needs, clothing & accessories, hygienic eatablel, health safety, fuel and other vehicle repair equipments (if going by your own car), few music cds and yes, the boss of all, your camera. And for your camera life, you need the batteries, charger and its cover. Now after, the categorization process, it will become easier for you to enlist the things needed according to all the categories, so that you don't miss out anything.
Start with basics- List down the basic items required for a daily routine. This includes your toothbrush, comb, lotions, soaps, shaving kit and towel.
List out clothes- After you are done with your basics, then pen down the clothes that you need to pack. Here you can write about the number of t-shirts, shirts and pants that you want to take with yourself. The number of clothes can be judged on the basis of the days that you are gonna spend on your holiday. Go for the clothes following mix-n-match theory- note down the pants or pair of trousers that are neutral in color or can go with almost anything like white, black, gray, beige and blue.
Write about accessories- Then move to the foot wears. You should write about the number of foot wears that you want to wear. It will include your bathroom sleepers, common pair and formal pair (if required). Keep in mind the type of place and activities you are going to have there like if you are going for trekking or some sports, then note down the shoes according to that and if for leisure activities like shopping n all, then any kind of foot wear will go with it. Note down about your sunglasses, head coverings like hat and scarf.
Kids or baby items- If you are taking your kids or baby along with you, then write down about their items also. It will include their diapers, towel, soap, clothes, milk bottle and water bottle and yes, a few toys for a comfortable journey.
Other items- You can write down about some other accessories if you are taking them with you like a camera, laptop and camping items (if you are planning to do a camping).
You can also note down the things that you want to purchase in your holidays. It will help you to leave a good space in your packing bag to adjust those things. So do enjoy on your holidays and have a great time!!! Take care and Good luck!!!
