Packing can be an art. Pack to much and you will be paying a fortune for luggage. Pack to little and you will be spending money on the things your forgot. Finding the things that you need to bring and need to leave behind requires a bit of forethought on your part. Starting to pack early, making a list and ensuring that you know what to expect from the weather, your destinations and even the culture itself are all ways that you can be sure to pack smarter.
Bearing this all in mind, there are some things that you may simply not think of when packing for a vacation. Things you don’t need everyday, or simply take for granted because you always have them may fall through the cracks. Tradewinds Travel Club invites you to take a look with us a a few of these often forgotten or unappreciated items to add to your packing list when you next vacation.
Power – Whether traveling in the U.S. or abroad, your needs for power may or may not change. When traveling to some countries, you may need to think about what type of power you will be using. You may need to bring a converter for your phone or laptop. Be sure to check into your destination before you travel to ensure that you have the right adapters.
Towelettes – Great for your carry on, this is a necessity for parents but a handy item even for the single non parents as well. Sometimes you simply cant find a faucet and you just have to wipe your hands or face, these can work quite well if need be.
Safety Pins – Just handy and a good idea. Small yet incredibly helpful, having one or two with you can really save you from hassles if you have a rip or some other issue with your clothing when traveling.
Zip Top Bags – Just handy, zip top bags can store wet wash clothes, help save space in your bags, or keep bottles from leaking even if squished.
