As you can probably tell, I like lists. I’ll make a list for literally anything and everything, it makes me feel a lot calmer and more organised when I can see everything that is bobbing around in my head, actually on paper (or my phone screen).
This is a list I initially wrote as I was packing and I’ve edited it down now I’ve been away for a while, so that it’s exactly what I have needed minus the pointless extras that are just dead weight. I used this list to both check I had everything from home before I set off on my travels, and to have a double-check every time I packed up to head to a new location. This is just the bare bones that can be personalised to any sort of holiday or trip, so I hope it helps.
