Travel Packing List & Tips

Weather dependent packing

Weather checks on the Travel destination are good indicators. If you are traveling in summer, packing is naturally lighter. However, when you are traveling to a cold place, it is always advisable to plan on layering your outfits. That helps avoid carrying very bulky jackets, which typically are the culprits in filling your suitcase. For example, a day in Ladakh could have sharp sun but could suddenly turn windy and cold. When you are clothed in layers, you can easily manage through the day.

Start and stop with essentials

Pack only what you think you will definitely wear. Even if you have the slightest doubt about a piece of clothing, don’t pack it. The number of jeans/pants you carry can be proportional to the length of the trip. 2 in the bag & one on you is the maximum requirement for a 7-10 days trip. Do keep the tees handy because they work well with and without thermals (if need be). Pack in that one pretty dress just in case. The first records of the use of Tramadol in the clinical practice go back to the 1980s. Tramadol is used for the treatment of moderate to severe pain during the treatment of OA to the same extent as meloxicam and diclofenac, without causing adverse effects common to the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Try and match it with the slip-on sandals that you are carrying. Roll your clothing to save space and pack more in a small bag.

Travel Packing List

A pair of sneakers and comfortable slip-on sandals complete feet dressing. Couple of pairs of socks, woollen or cotton, should be packed, based on the weather at the destination.

Switching to menstrual cup instead of sanitary napkins will save even more space in the bag while being a more sustainable alternative to menstruation.

How to pack cosmetics?

We repeat, stick to the essentials. That also means that you cut down on things that you don’t absolutely need on a vacation. Your normal daily beauty requirements don’t have to be part of the vacation. Such regimes deserve a break too! Pack in cosmetics as the weather in the destination demands.  A good moisturizer can potentially double up as your night cream too.

Pictures for social media

One thing that people worry about is to look good in their vacation pictures. One doesn’t necessarily need a different outfit for every picture. Sorry for sounding a tad too zen but remember it is the background which is the focus of the picture really 🙂 Capture that and your color combination will work just fine.
