Picture this – You’re in bed. You’ve got 4 hours before you have to wake up to catch your flight the next morning for your epic vacation. But you can’t get any sleep, partly because of the excitement and partly because of this nagging feeling that you’re forgetting something. Fret not. This packing list will make sure that you’ve got all the essentials covered.
Contacts, Contact Solution and Glasses: If you’re the type of person who looks for her glasses first thing in the morning, then we suggest you make sure you don’t forget those and your contacts.
Passport or Identity Document: Don’t risk missing your flight because you have to run back home and grab your identification.
First Aid Kit: Before you roll your eyes at this, just take a moment to think about how handy a small bag with painkillers, motion sickness medications, bandages, antibacterial cream and sunscreen will be for your trip.
Cosmetics – Only Essentials: You know that mascara you’ve added to your make-up bag. Yeah, the one you’ll definitely not use on your trip. We suggest you remove it and stick to the essentials (preferably, travel sized versions).
Phone Charger: Hate to say it, but we need our phones for pretty much everything, whether it’s contacts, maps, email or even to tell the time, so make sure you toss in the phone charger in your bag before leaving the house.
