We put together a collection of sites that did the work for you and put together checklists for cutting through the things you may not need and put together a travel bag of everything you will need.
This is a very thoroughly done checklist. There are some items that may be off the allowed list if you’re flying, work around it and you have a great jumping off point for developing your own “must haves” for your next international trip.
Intrepid Travel put together their version of the concentrated packing list for travel. They go one step further and also recommend getting an International Driver’s License, which is something we highly recommend as well. No driver’s test is required. The requirements to meet are to be over 18-years of age and possess a valid driver’s license. Then you can be the captain of your own vehicle when you travel overseas. You can learn more about getting an International Driver’s License through Texas Tower.
Condé Nast has put together a great article that tells how to pack a single bag for a year’s worth of travel. It’s definitely an interesting read.
So there you have it. Three great destinations to learn how to pack what you need for a trip and actually have what you need instead of giving yourself the job of carrying extra shoes, clothes, and items you didn’t actually need anyway!
Make 2017 the year you set a goal to travel lighter!
