WHAT TO PACK?

Hi there lovelies!
In a few weeks I will be on my way to Harrogate, England, and I thought it would be fun to list everything I take with me on my trip. I am a big fan of list making and I’m always curious to see what others bring with them too!

This list is pretty standard, but I’m going to the IATEFL conference (I need to do that for a course at my school) so it’s nothing fancy haha!


BEFOREHAND
 (A few weeks before I leave)
·         Check the weather forecast + Pick out/Plan outfits for the entire trip
·         Pick up the last bits and pieces (new face wash, toothpaste, pain killers, etc.)
·         Check that everything is sorted and you do not need to buy or plan anything

BEFOREHAND
(A day before I leave)
·         Do laundry
·         Make sure I have enough money on my bank account
·         Charge my phone & camera’s
·         Make sure my parents know where I’m staying and give them a number they can call if they cannot get in contact with me for some reason
·         Put together my makeup bag and wash bag with toiletries (this is going in my suitcase)
·         Make sure every file I need is printed out and already in my carry-on suitcase.

WHAT I PACK
CARRY-ON SUITCASE
·         All printed out files (airplane ticket, conference booking confirmation etc.)
·         Purse (Debit card, ID-card, OV card [it’s like a Dutch oyster card], insurance cards, etc.)
·         Earphones
·         Camera (My DSLR & compact camera + chargers and SD cards)
·         Laptop ( and its charger)
·         Book
·         Sunglasses
·         Notebook + Diary
·         Pencil case
·         Small wash bag (with painkillers, hair elastics, hairgrips and lip balm)

If there’s room left I will add:
·         A change of clothing and underwear, just in case my actual suitcase gets lost somewhere.

SUITCASE
·         Clothing, underwear, lots of socks, shoes, slippers, etc.
·         Small purse
·         Small handbag
·         Canvas bag
·         PJs
·         Makeup bag and wash bag with toiletries
·         Curling wand
·         Tangle Teezer & hair styling products

ADD TO CARRY-ON
(Just before I leave)
·         Phone (and its charger)
·         Food & water for during the trip to the airport

I will do a more in-depth post on my makeup bag soon!


I absolutely love travelling and exploring the world. Small trips or big, they’re all exciting. I hope to see a lot more of the world and I’m very grateful for the experiences I’ve already had. <3 What’s the best trip you’ve had so far?

Lots of love,

Laurie
