Things I have learned whilst travelling – Packing!

I’m pretty sure my suitcase and I are mortal enemies… here’s what I’ve learnt 😉

  1. Be prepared. For anything, but don’t fall apart when something completely unexpected happens – which you were not prepared for. If you need something – buy it at your destination. 
  2. Have several different ways to access money. Carry cash, have a card, have two cards – keep them separate. Have coins, again in different bags. Do not have all of your money on you in one spot.
  3. Sanitising wipes / gel. Sure – it’s not the same feeling as washing your hands – but sometimes your hands just feel gross.
  4. You can never have too many pairs of underwear. Seriously. 
  5. Unpack half of the clothes you pack – you will NOT use them.
  6. You do not need more than 2-3 pairs of shoes.
  7. Don’t pack something you have not worn/used before.
  8. If you have things packed in space bags – you have too much stuff.
  9. Be safe, be aware of your surroundings and make good choices. You are not invincible. Lock your bags, don’t leave them out of sight and for the love of god – don’t let a stranger touch / handle your bag. This seems obvious but people continue to get caught smuggling things. Set-up or not – just play it safe. 
  10. Passport. That is all. Keep it on you.
