I think (keyword THINK) that I am a really good packer. But I always, always forget something. So I hope this list helps people to never forget anything (anything important, at least) while packing again. Some of the items on this list are dependent on when and where you are travelling (you probably won’t need bug spray in the desert, or sunscreen in the middle of winter), but it’s safer to list everything you may potentially need. I hope I didn’t forget anything!
-Driver’s License or ID
-Any permits (hiking, etc.)
-Printed out reservation confirmations
-Travel Insurance confirmation (if you have it)
Note: Always check your airlines restricted items list if you are flying!
-Hair brush (I literally ALWAYS forget a hair brush)
-Contact case and solution
-Glasses and case
-Travel size tissues
-Outlet converters (if you need them)
-Camera AND camera chargers
-Extra SD cards
-Laptop AND charger
-Socks (always bring extra)
-Shoes (a simple pair you can wear with every outfit, walking shoes, flip flops)
-Cross-body purse WITH zipper
-Travel journal and pens
-Trash bags (good for dirty laundry, packing shoes, etc.)
