Packing // Holiday Help

Packing. Love it or hate it, when it comes to a holiday we all have to do it. I don't particularly love packing. It's so time consuming and I never know what clothes to pack and then I end up taking too many which I never wear throughout the holiday. Today I'm going to show you how I packed for my holiday. You may find it excessive or not nearly enough, but my weight limit was quite low and I panic pack (even though I planned).

Planning is essential.

This year I made spider diagrams of all the items I had in mind to take with me. I colour coded my diagram with pink highlighted meaning it's packed, green underlined meaning I'm wearing the item to the airport and yellow underlined meaning it's in my hand luggage. I've still managed to over pack but at least I'm super prepared? Right?

Suitcase choice.

Pick light luggage. The lighter the case, the more you can take/bring home. My luggage is from IT Luggage and it is so light. It's incredible. However, I only have two wheels. I didn't realise four wheeled luggage existed until a recent trip with my friends. They found it so much easier, so out of the whole luggage collection I would recommend buying something like this.

Pack appropriately.

Don't go packing your new pair of high waisted jeans if you're going to be spending a week in thirty degree heat! Even if they do look absolutely amazing on and make you look like you have a bum Iggy Azalea would be jealous of, trust me, put the jeans down. Check the weather! I used an app on my iPhone called Yahoo Weather and it showed me a ten day weather prediction. If its going to rain, pack a hoodie or a coat! Take sensible shoes and anything important you need!

Important documents.

Don't be a massive drip. Remember your tickets, boarding passes, PASSPORT (and EU health card if travelling within Europe). You never know what will happen on the day, so double check just in case.

Comfortable travelling.

You want to be comfy on the plane. I wore a jersey maxi skirt, a light top and a cardigan. They were quite heavy items so I saved some weight there.

These are my tips so far. I've only travelled on a plane twice, so I didn't go too into detail. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoyed reading this post! Check out my previous Holiday Help post by clicking here.
