If you’re planning to travel this summer, then you need to make sure that you have everything that you need in your suitcase before you go. This can be easier said than done, however, especially if this will be the first time that you’ve travelled out of state by yourself. You don’t want to take too much with you, since packing will take up extra room in your suitcase and could cause your clothes and other items to wrinkle or break, but on the other hand, you certainly don’t want to forget something important either.

Clothing

Dress in layers and pack clothes that you can mix and match. Bring some warm clothes like coats, hats, scarves, gloves. Dress up your outfit with boots or heels. If you’re going somewhere tropical, pack different colour t-shirts and tank tops so you can switch up your look as the day goes on. Consider packing at least one dress if you’re going on tours in Iceland where there will be multiple events at night where you’ll need to wear something other than jeans.

Footwear

Pack comfortable and sturdy shoes. Sneakers or running shoes work well for most trips, but if you’re going on a long hike or doing some sightseeing, pack your hiking boots or dressy flats. If you have room in your suitcase, bring an extra pair of shoes so that if one gets wet during the trip you can dry it out by wearing the other pair.

Toiletries and Hygiene

Make sure you have all the toiletries and hygiene necessities. This includes toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, soap, mouthwash, and makeup. You might also want to pack feminine products if you’re a woman or contact lens solution if you wear contacts.

Electronics

It’s important to include electronics in your packing list. You’ll need these things to keep you connected while you’re away from home. If you don’t have the right charger, it can be difficult and expensive to find one abroad. Plus, if your phone is your camera or you rely on it for other functions like GPS, then bringing the right battery charger is essential so that you don’t have a dead phone when you need it most. Don’t forget your adapters too. Even though they seem small and insignificant, they are a lifesaver when travelling abroad because they allow you to use any of your electronics wherever you go.

Miscellaneous

Packing can be one of the most stressful parts of any trip. But don’t worry, we have you covered. Here are the essentials that you need before you leave home: A good carry-on bag: It should be lightweight, durable and not too big. You want it to fit in an overhead compartment or under your seat if the flight is full. Remember, this is just what you need to bring on the plane with you. Once your checked baggage arrives at your destination, you will have all the time in the world to pack for sightseeing.
