Summer Holiday Travel Essentials
Packing for your summer holidays can be difficult, especially if you are going to a place you are unfamiliar with. You obviously need to take into account the climate, and you are probably heading for somewhere warm, but do remember that even in hot places it can get chilly in the evenings, and after a day in the sun you can find a cool night time breeze quite uncomfortable. Pack a light jacket and a cardigan.
When buying new clothes to take on holiday it is easy to be tempted by different styles that you would not normally use, but remember that just because you are on holiday doesn’t mean you’re going to be comfortable dressing differently. Never buy clothes for a holiday that you wouldn’t wear at home, the chances are you won’t even put them on and they will return home unused.
Start packing at least a week before you are due to go. Packing over time gives you chance to remember things you might have forgotten. Start out putting everything which you think you’d like to take into the suitcase. Two days before you are due to leave remove everything and consider carefully each item that you have chosen. When packing for vacations each clothing item needs to be multifunctional and versatile.
Group the clothes together to form different possible outfits. Choose dresses which work on the beach or out for dinner. Remember to pack at least one pair of lightweight trousers and one pair of shorts, of a neutral color which can work for a shopping trip into town or a stroll along the cliff path. Chose several tops which combine with these and try to keep a color theme for all the clothes you are taking, this will give you more combination opportunities. Try to make sure that each garment you chose can be used in combination with at least 2 others so you can have plenty of different options depending upon the situations you encounter.
You will need at least 2 bikinis or swimsuits for a weeks holiday, and a cover-up wrap or sarong is essential for getting to the beach. It can also be worn as a dress, a skirt and even as a wrap in the evenings.
Unless you are planning on taking an iron with you, or paying exorbitant hotel laundry rates, chose clothes that are made from lightweight synthetic fabrics such as polyester. These pack up very small, do not crease and will emerge from your suitcase looking great. Hang up all your clothes as soon as you arrive at your destination so any small creases will drop out. With these quick drying synthetic fabrics you can even rinse out a garment, hang it up to dry and put it back on.
Revise your clothes selection one last time before packing neatly into your suitcase. You will probably have been able to cut down to about half the original content, but you can be sure that the garments you are taking will offer you a range of comfortable and appropriate outfits for any occasion.
Happy Holidays 😉
