If you are like me you make a careful list of all the things you should pack when you travel. However, a lot of women leave things to chance and often forget to pack essentials when going on a trip. When they get to their hotel room and open their bags they start hyperventilating when they find out that they have missed something. It is time to take a look at this list and ensure that you pack what is on it for your next trip.
Copies of your travel documents
Most women are busy thinking about what pants or shoes to wear to their travel destination that they often end up forgetting to bring copies of their travel documents. Although nobody goes on a holiday expecting to lose their passports and other documents it is a possibility and it has happened to many people of both genders. If you have copies of your documents, you can head to the nearest embassy to have your passport reissued quickly should you lose it. You will be able to enjoy your holiday without too much inconvenience should something bad happen.
Extra memory card
Although I am not a professional, I take quite decent pictures and if you are like me who keeps taking pictures you might run out of space when you badly need it. There is nothing more frustrating than spending a lot of time planning the perfect vacation only to find yourself unable to take pictures because you have no space left. It is always a good idea to take a spare memory card with you whenever you travel. Do not even think about purchasing a memory card on your travel destination. If it is a top tourist attraction you can expect to pay more than twice the regular price of a memory card.
Reusable water bottle
Airports have become quite strict with what passengers can or cannot carry onto a plane, no thanks to terrorist attacks. Water bottles with more than 100ml liquid have been included in the banned list. This means you cannot buy bottled water outside the airport and take it with you on the plane. An empty reusable water bottle is a must. Who wants to pay for extremely overpriced bottle water at the airport? I certainly don’t!
Bag for dirty laundry
The last thing you want to do on your trip is to mix soiled clothes with clean clothes and make them all unwearable. It is not a good idea to spend money buying new clothes when you have perfectly nice and clean clothes with you. So always bring a bag for dirty laundry.
