Packing in Transit

Packing your things for travel requires a bit of handy work and knack at creativity to make sure you don’t end up in disarray en route to your dream destination, or worse discovering when you arrived that you have not packed some of the essentials you needed while traveling. To be a pack-savvy junkie, you might want to consider the following tips:

· Pack light and bring only what is necessary, so you might want to skip that paperback, you won’t need it anyway when traveling to a new place

· Pack your stuff in order so you’d know where to find things when needed. Wrap a set of clothings, a pair of shorts, a shirt or a blouse together with your underthings, in individual baggies, for easy retrieval. You can easily place your soiled stuff in those baggies after use, too.

· Be organized, so make sure you make a list of all the things you need to pack and bring so you won’t end up forgetting something.

· Make you’re your valuables are in a safe container. You can also bring some cable ties so the cables for your cameras and phones are orderly even in transit.

Keep these tips in mind and packing for a trip will be easy-breezy!

On Flower Deliveries and Traveling Light

Anyone who invented the phrase “travel light” might have been a seasoned traveler himself and probably have experienced the hassles of travelling with a huge backpack and several hand carries on either hands on one or two occasions that he has made it his new mantra to not carry his entire wardrobe or bedroom the next time he boards the plane for yet another travel adventure.

Here are a few tips how you can do the same:

  • Bring clothes made of light fabric, that way they will be half as bulky and is easier to fit in your rucksack or carryall
  • Instead of hoarding on souvenir items, which can be such a pain to fit into your bags and luggage, as gifts to families and friends, buy postcards and send them from where you are vacationing. Your friends will surely appreciate the thought more
  • Be creative and adventurous, instead of buying your mom native delicacies as souvenir why not hit the local flower shop and ask for their custom flower delivery service. Your mom would surely appreciate the thought and would melt at the sight of the lovely flowers.
