How To Travel Light For Long Trips

When you are planning a weekend getaway it might be possible to pack light, but the list of items usually increases when you are planning to be away for long. However, if you plan to backpack your way around you might want to pack light. Here are some tips that would help you plan your packing even for a long trip.

Know the weather conditions

When you are planning a travel to different places, what are the weather conditions that you are likely to encounter? It is easy to pack light when you would be traveling to warm places. Simply pack in two or three pairs of light trousers or shorts along with a similar number of t-shirts that would be easy to wash and wear without the need to iron. Opt for sweat slicking garments as found in fitness wear shops. Such items help you retain freshness for long and would dry fast when you wash them. They would also be wrinkle free.

If you would be requiring warm clothing, it is best to opt for the layering way of clothing. If possible, carry a versatile jacket or keep it for yourself while traveling to prevent having to pack it in. Opt for warm innerwear that are light and take on several cotton tees or cotton blend garments that you could mix and wear underneath. Stock up on socks, leggings, and undergarments as well. A standard rule to follow would be to have three pairs of each that would help you last two days without having to wash and wear.

Go utilitarian

Unless you are packing for a fancy resort trip with friends, a rugged or adventure trip outdoors would help you, feel free when you pack utilitarian and only the basics. Hence, opt for walking shoes and the essential clothing as mentioned above. Pack in toiletries you would need, sunscreen, bug spray if required, first aid essentials, books or music that would help you spend your traveling hours with the right kind of entertainment. Also, pack in charger kit for your phone or tablet and zip up after you have included all these items.

Ensure that you pack in your IDs, money, travel booking papers and you are set to go. When you pack light, you travel hassle free and have the bare essentials to worry about. That will help you not have to mind your luggage all the time, but be free to enjoy your surroundings and make the most of your travel experience. If possible, get yourself clothing for a night out or any special occasion at the place you visit and you could bring it back as a memoir of something special or exciting that you did on your trip.
