Write it down: Making a list of all things you are going to do on your trip will help you find out what you need. For example: If you’re planning to go for a swim while on your trip, you’d obviously need your swimming costume. So make a list of all the activities on your travel agenda and also jot down the essentials that you would need in a “list of things to pack”.

Begin with the must-haves: Once you’re ready with your “list of things to pack”, begin with packing the non-negotiable, must-have-at-any-cost items. This may include important documents, emergency medicine, etc.
