I am the world’s worst packer and my time management sucks.
When I was younger this did not worry me at all. I used to work until the last minute, quickly throw something in my suitcase and arrive just before the call “Gates will be soon closed, will passenger YYZ please proceed to gate 13”.
Amazing that I only missed two flights in my long traveling career.
When taking a trip what do you need to pay attention to? Let’s say you have booked all your flights and hotel arrangements, read a ton of traveling reports on the places you want to see and you are ever so ready to go.
Make a packing list, it will save you time and spare you the agonizing moment when you realize you have forgotten your bathing suit.
Make sure you have the following documents ready:
- Tickets + hotel reservations
- some cash in local currency
- credit cards
- Backup passport, driver licence, international vaccination document
- telephone numbers
- leave a copy of all this with your family / friends
And now you are ready to leave the cold winter, lean back and enjoy your trip: Bon voyage and safe traveling!
