Hi inzidoodle

This list always helps me not to forget anything when I'm packing to go away:

Essentials
Passport
Visa
ID card
Airline ticket or E-ticket
Reservation numbers: hotel and car rental
Money: both local and foreign currency
Credit cards
House keys

Tip: Call your bank and let them know exactly where you’re travelling to and the dates you’ll be gone to avoid having your credit/debit card declined.

Toiletries
Shampoo/conditioner
Body wash
Cleanser
Lotion
Toothbrush/toothpaste/floss
Shaver/shaving cream
Cotton buds
Deodorant
Hair brush/comb
Tweezers

Tip: Always save any samples you pick up at stores to take with you or buy travel size bottles and fill them with your favourite products. And to avoid unwanted leaks, place liquids in re-sealable plastic bags.

Clothing/Shoes
Pyjamas
Underwear
Trousers/jeans
Socks
Skirts
Dress
Shirts: casual and dressy
Belts
Sweater
Jacket
Shoes: comfortable and dressy
Slippers
Swimsuit
Shorts
Accessories: Scarves, hats, and jewellery.

Tip: It’s always a good idea to pack a light sweater or a shawl for cool nights.
To keep clothes from creasing, roll instead of folding them and place tissue paper between your delicates.

Electrical
Hairdryer
Adapter
Portable speakers
iPod or CD player
Camera (film, if needed)
Recharging equipment for electrical equipment, i.e. mobile, camera

Tip: Electrical appliances in the US work at 110 volts - while most countries in the world use 220 - 240 volts. Always have an adapter or converter handy.

Miscellaneous
Sun block / cream
Sunglasses
Mosquito repellent
Plasters
Nail clippers and/or nail file
Any prescription medicine you’re taking
Rescue Remedy - invaluable when travelling with kids!
Extra locks - in case you lose any

On the day of travel:
Make sure all electrical appliances are not switched on or plugged in.

Throw away any perishable goods you have in the fridge.

Lock all windows and doors.

Turn water heater and heating down to lowest setting or change timer to once a day.

Leave shades down and drapes closed.

Park your car either in a garage or buy a special steering wheel lock for maximum security.

Secure all your pieces of luggage with a small lock and put keys in a safe place. If you’re worried about losing your keys buy a lock with a code number instead.

Double-check that you have all your travel documents: passport, visa and tickets.

Don’t forget to take these items in your hand luggage: paracetamol, bottled water (buy a bottle in the departures area of the airport, once you're through the Security Checks), a book, lip balm, lotion and anything else you’d need on the flight.

If you're travelling with the little ens, it's also a good idea to pack 'Travel Packs' full of games, crayons, books and snacks for them to open on the plane.

Hope this helps you all too!

Happy Travels,
Love
