Weekly Travel Tip – Pack Well and in Advance

Mina and Alex are about to embark on their around-the-world. But they are no strangers to travel! Sending Postcards, a blog I read regularly, is all about their past adventures. Plus, they have another blog …two of us Sending Postcards which is all about their upcoming monumental adventure! So with all this experience, I was lucky to get Mina to share some of her travel tips with me!

Pack Well and in Advance. I find this list from travellerspoint.com incredibly useful. (http://www.travellerspoint.com/packing-list.cfm) The list is very extensive and many of the items will not apply to everyone. I print this out a few weeks before my trip, and after crossing off half of the list, I pack the rest. This way, I’m less likely to forget anything. I’m also less likely to pack useless items or things that could be easily purchased when you arrive.

Mina and Alex, her fiancé, love to explore the globe and are about to venture out on an around-the-world trip. So far, they have been to Dubai, Tokyo, Luxor, and Paris to name a few. They are really looking forward to seeing more rural settings and ‘non-tourist’ attractions on their upcoming trip.

Although Mina doesn’t consider herself an expert on the matter, over the upcoming 3 weeks, she will be sharing her travel tips with us.

Here’s the first one and come back every Sunday for the rest!
