Solo Travel Tip #4

Pack light & simple!

. . .

From arriving safely at your destination, to exploring your destination…
When traveling alone, there are A LOT of things to think about… and, one of the most important, and overlooked thing is PACKING!
So, here are some tips about packing that I’ve learned throughout my many solo travels:

1- Pack light
You’re traveling alone; you don’t want to worry about carrying 2 bags and lugging around 2 suitcases. Save yourself the stress, and pack just 1 suitcase and 1 bag.

This is what I normally pack for my trips.
1 suitcase (regular 24″) & 1 backpack (big enough to hold some extra clothes and a 17″ laptop)

2- Check the weather!
You most likely don’t need to bring your entire wardrobe.
And, if you do forget anything, you can probably find at your destination (and, it can count as a great souvenir).

Search for the weather forecast for the first week of your trip.

3- What are you going for?
Are you going to be at the beach everyday? Are you going hiking a lot? Are you going in the mountains?

4- What kind of trip?
Is it for business? Are you going for vacation? Are you going to visit friends/family? For how long?

5- How are you going to pack?

Fold
Roll

Will you choose the fold or roll method?
This tip is very controversial. But, after personally trying both methods, multiple times, for different trips, I’ve come to the conclusion that the FOLD method is 100% easier and much more effective for any type of trip. It also takes much less room in your suitcase,
and keeps your clothes much more organized, and less wrinkly.


Thanks for reading!
I hope this post helps you pack effectively for your next adventure because packing effectively is the start to an amazing experience because it can take away some of the stress of traveling!

P.S. This post was inspired by my next adventure (departing: tomorrow)!
So, stay tuned for more adventure posts (and, to find out where I’m going)!

Here’s a hint of my next adventure!
