What to Pack

How do you know what to take and pack for a holiday?  Well, that really depends on where you’re going, the style of trip (e.g. cycling holiday, luxury cruise, coach tour, independent travel) and who you are travelling with (e.g. young children, elderly relative, as a couple, friends or solo).  Here are a few essentials I never leave home without (in addition to the obvious items such as passport, travel insurance, money, applicable visas and travel documents etc):

  • TSA approved padlock
  • Packing cells
  • Travel journal, glue stick and pen
  • Tissues, wet wipes and hand sanitizer
  • Re-sealable plastic bags
  • Sunblock and insect repellent
  • Pashmina or scarf
  • Plug adapter
