Newsflash: I like organization. And planning. And preparation.
So it should come as no surprise that any time I travel, I have a packing list. Actually I have a packing list and a separate, detailed outfits list (doesn’t everyone?). It helps to keep me from never (almost never) forgetting anything I need for my next adventure.
Of course my packing list isn’t set in stone and always needs to be adapted depending on where I’m going, but there’s a core set of things that I keep on there to make sure I’m covered.
In case you’re like me and forget what you packed for a trip as soon as you return and unpack from a trip, this list is a helpful guide that you should use and adapt for your needs. Here's my list of things I pack, in no particular order.
Passport and copy of passport
Travel sized toiletries: lotion, shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, face wipes or face wash, face cream
Extra plastic ziplock bags for liquids, etc.
Bag for dirty clothes
Cross body purse
Outfits and shoes (separate list)
Money and credit cards
Priority Pass card
Medicine: Advil, Immodium, Benedryl, prescription meds
Umbrella or poncho
First aid kit
