I don’t exactly love packing (at all) But I do care about it (a lot) Whenever I go traveling I spend loads of time thinking about what to pack, what to leave and what to buy once I get there. Vietnam is no different. And also – surprise – I have a system for this.
Over the cause of many past trips I have developed the Ultimate Packing List. It’s rather genius if I do say so myself (though I’m not sure it’s very original)
The idea is that it’s much easier to cross the things you don’t need off a list than it is to remember everything each time you go traveling. So what I’ve done is that I’ve made a list and every time I need to pack for a trip I just rename the list and delete all the things I don’t need – and also, if I’m bringing something I haven’t before, I add it to the original.
This way I now have a list with almost everything you could need for a trip, and it’s yours to steal away right here (you’re welcome)
Some side notes:
- I’m not a skier, so if your vacation is taking you to colder places than Denmark, it might need some additions. All the basics are there though.
- Also as you will soon discover from the content; I am a girl, and therefor girly things occur on the list. Feel free to replace then with manly things such as … hammers and scotch. (What do I know?)
- The essential thing to notice here is that you have to delete stuff from the list. Otherwise you’ll have a hard time fitting it into a suitcase – let alone a backpack.
These are ALL the things I’ve brought for ALL of my past trips. Sometimes you need make-up and high heels – Headed to Costa Rica? Maybe replace it with the mosquito net.
Happy packing and see you out there!
