Everyone who has done his part of travelling knows a thing or two about packing. If nothing else - almost everyone hates it.
After some time, packing becomes a routine and is at least not as stressful anymore as the first couple of times.
I usually use travel checklists (there are a few useful examples on the link) for different types of trips. This saves me lots of time and lots of nerves.
Even with a checklist my travel bag or suitcase always seems to be just a bit too small.
This has become even more critical since all the low cost airlines started charging for every piece of luggage besides one piece of hand-luggage.
Sounds familiar? Are you also annoyed with this? Bear with me, there might be a way to make your life just a bit easier...
I found this guy on YouTube the other day and he really knows how to do his packing. Just lean back and enjoy the show!
I think we can all learn a thing or two from him.
There are a few universal pointers about packing, everyone should follow when boarding a plane:
- pack your luggage more efficiently (see the above video for practical demonstration),
- wear some clothes through the boarding gate ("onion philosophy"),
- use the WC after the security check to fill an empty bottle with drinkable water (where this is possible).
If you have some additional tips or thoughts on the subject, feel free to comment. We can all learn from each other.
