One of the most stressful things about traveling is packing. Even after dozens of trips, packing still stresses me out. What if I pack too much? Or too little? What if my bag goes over the weight limit? Or the size limit?!
Even though it can be stressful to pack, I like to look at packing as a challenge. It was always my goal to take as small as bag as possible when I would go to summer camp. And to never pay for a bag when flying. Never.
To help minimize my stress and minimize my likelihood of overpacking, I created a template packing list. I adapt the list depending on my specific destination and length of time, but I’ve used the same basic list for a snowboarding trip to Austria, 3 weeks to Thailand and Greece in the summer, and just about every weekend trip in between.
