With an endless amount of travel destinations to see, the only thing missing is you and your passport.
After my recent travels, and several people asking me for travel tips, I decided to compose a list of travel must-haves. And by must-haves, I mean MUST-HAVES! In other words less is more. Most people over pack bringing more luggage abroad then they actually need. resulting in over weight fees, lack of space in lodging area, risk of loosing luggage, the ability to purchase new items, and a really uncomfortable journey. Trust me, i’ve been through it all. To be perfectly honest, I’ve been faced with all these roadblocks, so now I can give you the tools to bring everything you need abroad.
First things first, if you can ,try and carry on. Carrying on saves so much time, and it also protects you from loosing your bags. Now this isn’t something you absolutely have to do, but it eliminates many headaches. If you decide to carry on your bag, you should also consider bringing a garment bag. With a garment bag you can bring 3-5 additional outfits on board. I mean altogether you can get by with more than a weeks worth of outfits.
Now if you do decide to check a big suitcase you will have a bit more space to work with. I’m not sure how long you’re planning to travel for, but I do know I can break down what you might need for at least one week worth of travel.
Liquids should be 3.4 oz (milliliters) or less if you plan on carrying on. If you do plan on checking a bag then this doesn’t apply to you.
