Documents, Travel Itinerary
travelling hills it is always advisable to carry Binoculars
for better view but these are optional.
a big bag: The first thing you should always keep
in mind is to carry not more than two suitcases. Ideally,
you should look around for one large suitcase to accommodate
everything. Make sure the suitcase is not too heavy and
is easy to cart along, wherever you go.
not overload the toiletries : You can easily buy some
more while you're out there or borrow from your co-travellers.
So, do not complicate things by packing unnecessary items.
Think simple; carry a regular toothbrush and not a big
electric one and also a smaller towel.
to draw the line?
A lot of people don't know when to draw the line when
it comes to packing clothing and shoes. The first thing
to remember is that you're not immigrating to the place
and hence you don't need to empty out your entire closet
into your suitcase. List the number of days you are visiting
a place and pack your clothes accordingly. Don't be afraid
to repeat your clothes, after all it's just a trip. Don't
be wary about doing the laundry by yourself.
Roll garments up into tight tubes to save packing space.
Travelling light is the best way to travel. Pack only
the essentials, you don't have to take the entire household
with you, travels are meant to be fun and they can only
be if you have a light bag.
and clothes: Do find out about the weather condition
and pack your clothes accordingly. You don't want to land
up there finding yourself totally out of place and ill-equipped.
If you are an adventure lover then this might not be for
you, but if you like to play safe then make the reservations
in advance, especially during the peak seasons.
If your destination is more interior parts say a wildlfie
sanctuary (Jim Corbett National Park - Binsar Wildlife
Sanctuary) or trek etc, then keep a first aid box and
some basic medicines for pain and fever. You never know
when you might need them.
if you keep these points in check, then you sure will
enjoy the holiday that has kept you waiting for so long.
