Packing list for your summer holidays

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

Packing for your summer vacation is not really a difficult task. Summer holiday destinations generally tend to have hot weather, so you must bring along clothing that is lightweight, in breathable fabrics like linen and cotton. You can pack capri pants or shorts, short sleeved shirts or even sleeveless shirts or the tank tops. Also include clean socks and underwear for every day you are planning to be away. Take a few beach towels for the water play or maybe some sun worshiping on those beautiful beaches and you may want a backpack if your group likes hiking along the mountain trails or maybe just exploring the surrounding countryside. Pack your first aid kit for taking care of any unexpected mishap during your summer trip. Do not forget the insurance cards in the event you have to visit emergency rooms or an urgent care clinic. Have a zipper-styled plastic bag so as to fill it with ice in case you require an ice-pack. You should start the packing process early because then there are less chances on forgetting the most important things that you may need for your summer holiday when you are abroad.

Packing for holidays is supposed to be of so much fun. Packing is usually a week to two week project. It may mean at least 4 to 5 pieces of luggage, one for each family member. Each person has his or her own individual needs that have to be remembered. All the attire for that particular climate needs to be packed. Do not forget extra clothes in case your child has an accident, dress clothes for dinner, etc. Items that help the children travel or sleep are essential. Some important tips for packing are the following. Make lists, upon lists, cross out and add as you go along, if you can share clothes amongst the children, please do. This will save on space. If you can do laundry on site this will also save on the amount of luggage needed. Remember to bring only what is necessary and last but most importantly start the packing process early.
