Ultimate travel packing list – everything you need to pack
I’ve been on so many trips and I had to pack so many times that I already know by heart what to pack with me. Isn’t it funny? I always start with the gadgets, cash/credit card, passport and other documents. Then I add good shoes, clothes, cosmetics and other girly things.
I finally decided to write it all down in a post to make your next packing easier. Simply follow the list and check if you’ve got everything. No need to memorize.
As I usually run away from colder places to hot & humid, the following list is mostly for warmer weather destinations. For colder destinations, pack also thick jacket, gloves, scarf, hat and thermal underwear.
Ultimate travel packing list
extra camera batteries
camera battery charger
empty SD cards
external hard drive
adaptors (if there are different plugs in the countries you are going to visit)
100% cold pressed natural oil with SPF for sunbathing
BPA- free water bottle
quick dry travel towel
tiger balm for mosquito bites
dry bag (if visiting destinations during the rainy season/going snorkeling/diving)
super foods and snacks
Ultimate packing list for females
If you are a woman who is packing for her big trip, then I recommend you to pack also the following items:
bag to carry to the beach
tampons/mentrual cup/sanitary napkins
make-up (eye shadows, eye liner, mascara)
sexy night dress
I admit that some women might think that this list is missing some cosmetic items or other female products. But I never personally travel with them.
Since July 2013 when I switched to mostly raw vegan diet, I’ve been using only natural vegan cosmetics, and only the necessary one. It means that I don’t use shower gel, deodorant, toothpaste (use coconut oil instead or Ayurvedic herbs), soap (just water), body lotion, hand cream, eye cream, any other cream (use coconut oil instead), make-up remover (use coconut oil instead). I don’t use nail polish nor hair dryers.
The last things to do before the trip
Before each trip I also do other important things:
recharge all the batteries (phone, laptop, tablet, camera)
print out boarding passes/other important documents (when mobile apps/emails are not enough)
check of travel insurance is valid until the end of your trip
send screenshots/copies of all the important documents to my email
have a copy of passport in all of my bags
count all the cash I am takng with me and write it down in an Evernote document/money app to keep a track of my expenses
