Vacation-packing made easy
That suitcase of clothes, shoes, toiletries, souvenirs and other useless nonsense will more than likely become your worst enemy when travelling. Travellers often believe that they must ensure that they have all the comforts and amenities of home. Why try to bring your entire life with you when the purpose of vacationing is to get away? When it comes to travelling, just remember that less is good - your back will thank you for it.
When preparing for a trip, whether it is a weekend getaway or globe trotting adventure, the one thing to remember is to pack as light as possible. When packing, you should always ask yourself the following three questions: (1) where do you plan on going; (2) how long do you plan on being away; and (3) what will the weather be like? Once you have explored these questions you can begin packing.
Choose the proper luggage
The type of suitcase(s) you need will ultimately depend on your destination. There are a number of styles, brands and sizes of luggage, but don't be fooled by their flashy, over-the-top features. You should not choose your luggage based on your personal style, but rather simplicity. Depending on the length of your stay and what you actually decide to take, one or two pieces of luggage should be all you need. Many types of luggage have hidden compartments that will make your packing much more efficient.
