Trouble Packing For Your Upcoming Vacation?

Nine of ten people agree that traveling is what they enjoy the most. Very often, people just can’t wait for their vacations to start, looking forward to that new experience and all the excitement that comes with it.
Same nine of ten people also agree that when the time comes, they are not ready with packing, and usually run late for the plane, bus, or whatever they are using as means of transportation to their first vacation stop. Most importantly, when they get there, they realize that they’ve forgotten important items for their trip, which often puts them in an awkward situation, to say the least. It seems that all the excitement related to the upcoming trip/ vacation makes people even less organized then they are (if they are at all), and they end up feeling a little disappointed due to lack of preparation. Here is what you need to do before you go on that trip:
The first thing you might want to do is, of course, get yourself a functional kind of bag (not fancy) for your trip.
Step #1 – Medication
Whatever you do, DO NOT forget any prescribed medication you may have. Take it all with you, along with the prescription, and if you really want to be on the safe side, get yourself some vitamins, and regular pills. Why? Easy – better have all that within reach instead of having to walk that long mile to the drug store when your head feels like it is going to explode any minute now, because you have a headache.
Step #2 – Glasses, Contact Lenses and Hearing Aids
OK, I can almost hear you say “Yeah, like I’m gonna forget that… “, but, truth be told, even though these items have become second nature for some of us, it is not uncommon to leave the contact lenses solution behind (which can be as bad as forgetting the lenses for that matter). Play it safe, and double check if you have these properly packed – you don’t want to ruin your vacation, just because you were thinking “of course, I am not gonna forget that.”
Step #3 – Clothes
I know how this goes when it comes to traveling and vacations – believe it or not, most of the time people end up packing far more that they need, even though they think they know what they are doing. “This is my favorite scarf” is not the best reason to pack something along with the things you really need.
Forget favorite, be pragmatic. Ask yourself the questions: “What are we doing for the most part of the vacation?”, “Are we going out on fancy dinners or just having fun with friends?”, “What’s the weather like, or what can it turn out like?”. You will find out how easy it will be for you to really decide on what clothes you are actually packing.
Most importantly, get clothes that go well together and can be interchanged. After all, a vacation is not about the clothes you put on, it’s about how you feel in those clothes and what is it that you are experiencing. Having a smile on your face is much better then your favorite scarf on.
