Ready for your first travel adventure in 2024? Whether you’re an experienced traveller or you’re looking to spend more time as a new year’s resolution, exploring the world around you, it’s important that you’ve packed correctly.
Packing is often an art and one which you can easily get wrong if you’re not clued up with what you need and don’t need. With that being said, here are a few tips on how to pack for your first adventure in 2024
Have a list made up ready
First and foremost, be sure to have a list made up ready so that when you come to packing, you can go through every item and tick it off once you have it packed in your bag and ready to go.
With a list, it’s often good to keep track of everything needed, especially if you’re packing for more than just yourself. There’s often a lot needed when it comes to packing and adding on a traveler or two to your party that you’re responsible for and it becomes a lot more challenging.
Create a list and be detailed in that list so that you’ve got everything you need for your journey and vacation ahead.
Less is more
When packing your bags or suitcases, always lead with the attitude – less is more. By packing less, you’re going to ensure you don’t go over your baggage allowance, which will save you from encountering any nasty fines.
In addition to this, you’re going to save yourself the back pain that comes with carrying or lugging around baggage that’s way too heavy. Lay everything out before packing it away to see if you can make any cuts beforehand.
Pack and travel:
Invest in some quality basics
The basics are essential when packing for a travel adventure. From colorful odd socks to basic tees, it’s good to spend the money on the everyday clothing you’ll be wearing.
Spending the money on quality is going to ensure you’re not spending more money abroad due to clothing falling apart after just one or two uses. Investing in your wardrobe is a must when going on a travel adventure, especially if it involves activities that require more specific attire.
Ensure you have plenty of currency options
Do you have the correct currency needed? What about the different currency options popular nowadays? From travel cards to cash, you’ll want to have a variety available. This is important because it helps should you run into any trouble if a card doesn’t work or if your cash goes missing for instance.
Separate your clothing if traveling with others
When it comes to traveling with others, you can benefit from safety in numbers – this includes your belongings. In the event that a suitcase or item or luggage goes missing, consider separating your clothing between the luggage you’re carrying. That way, you’ll at least have some clothing available in the meantime.
