Whenever I plan for a holiday, there are a few things I always consider that inform my decision on what to take with me. In this post, I share some tips that streamline my travel process.

The first thing I do when planning a holiday is to determine where I am going, how long I’ll be gone, and how much I am willing to spend on accommodation, transportation, food, and activities. Once I have these details sorted out, I have a better idea of what I need to pack and what I don’t.

Once I’ve locked in my destination the next thing I do is research the location. I use social media platforms like Pinterest, Instagram, Tiktok, and YouTube, as well as travel blogs and sites, to learn more about the local customs, attractions, climate, culture, and terrain as this will inform my decision of what to take with me such as documents, appropriate clothing and other essentials. For example, some locations may require more modest clothing, while others may have a more relaxed dress code.

Next step I consider is the length of my trip and the weather forecast, and make a list of the things I want to do, see, and eat. For example, if I’m going to a beach destination in the summer, I include a swimsuit, sunscreen, and hat. Likewise, if I’m visiting a colder climate, I ensure to pack warm clothing like a woolen coat and thermal wear in my carry-on.

In conclusion, with a little bit of planning, you can make your next trip less overwhelming, stress-free and enjoyable. Taking the time to research your destination, pack appropriately, and plan your activities ahead of time, will help you be ready to have a great time on your travels.
