How to Pack Well for your Next Trip

Sometimes you are just too happy to travel that you lose sight of the essentials. Other writers would describe it as missing the forest for the trees. But when you are into hiking and similar touristy stuff, it’s impossible to miss the forest for the trees. So all that is left for you to do is to decide which items to pack before traveling.

Have some paracetamol and ibuprofen ready

If you don’t feel like having a full-on travel first aid kit yet, have at least 5 of these tablets. With the heat of the sun increasing chances of a headache or having joint pain when your trek is not yet done, a quick fix with the help of these pain relievers will come handy.

Picking clothes to pack is easier when folding them after laundry

Has it ever happened to you that you wanted to include your favorite tank top in the traveling bag only to find it in the hamper? It means deciding on something else to wear in the duration of the weekend getaway.

When you’re done washing your clothes, you get an idea which items to put in the closet and which pieces of clothing to put in the traveling bag. You end up organizing clothes in two separate areas. Plus it helps in helping you identify what NOT to wear by putting said items in the closet.

Spartan (or Spartan-like shoes) are underrated

This is not about the brand. This is about the comfort. And seriously, they look good on your best walking shorts to strut around the morning after that stay in your chosen bed-and-breakfast. If your travel itinerary includes walking around the city to grab a bite or explore, have some comfortable footwear to make the journey enjoyable for you.

To wrap it up, never forget the basic element of a weekend getaway. Emphasize on the “getaway” part. You just want to get away from all that work-related stress, even just temporarily. So don’t forget to take care of yourself and enjoy without losing sight of what makes you comfortable.
