Finally, you’re going to take that trip you have planned for so long but you are stuck in one place thinking about what to pack and what not. Well, packing properly is difficult & sometimes requires a lot of effort & thought but it’s completely worth it. Your exact packing list will depend on your destination, the length of your trip, the weather, and your planned activities. So, here’s giving you a comprehensive guide on How To Pack Light (Read Clever) For A Long Tour.
- Choose The Right Baggage
Can’t stress this enough! The first mistake people tend to make is, choosing a bag which is too big or too small. We know how hard it can be to squeeze everything you need into one piece of luggage. When you’re cramming everything into that one piece of luggage, you need the bag itself to have plenty of pockets for organization and you also want it to have other smart travel features. Lightweight carry-ons are a lifesaver. Face fewer lineups at airports, both at check-in and when you get off the plane. Smile and walk by all those people watching the bags that are not theirs go round in circles on the carousel.
2. Some Things Are Packed, Some Are Worn!
Leave out your bulky items from your packing list. Carry less stuff with you & avoid getting around dragging your luggage! Learn something from Tyler Durden folks! “The Things you own, end up owning you!” Be smart and wear your hiking shoes while travelling, wear your bulky coat if you’re visiting a cold place, wear your boots if you really need to have them during your trip.
3. Roll It Up!
Instead of folding, start rolling your clothes. If you’re looking to keep your formalwear wrinkle-free, your best bet is folding rather than rolling. You’ll be surprised how much room you’ll save if you roll your clothing instead of laying it out flat. Stack the bulkiest items, such as pants and sweaters, into the corners of your bag (after shoes, of course) to distribute weight evenly, and then continue compiling rolled items at the center of your bag.
4. Pack Ahead Of Time
This goes without saying, the earlier you pack, the less hasty you’re & insert extras you probably don’t need at all. Allow yourself enough time to assess the pieces you need. You should lay all your items in a way that allows you to see everything — this will help you lighten your load and prevent you from bringing that extra bathing suit or the pair of shoes that you could probably do without.
