Travel has been the only thing on most of our minds and we can’t wait to plan our next trips! This Summer has been filled with adventure which means you need to be able to pack like a pro so you can enjoy your much deserved trips. It doesn’t matter where you’re going–it’s important that you pack smart and are fully prepared.

Thinking about it now, I’m not sure I’ve ever had a trip go exactly the way I planned. Not even business trips! But being prepared for the worst case scenario is the best way you can be ready for anything that comes at you! This is possible to do without stressing or overpacking. Life is an adventure, you never know what’s going to happen, especially if you’re visiting somewhere you’ve never been before.

Having a strategy when packing avoids any wasted time from overpacking. It also saves you money! Why spend a single cent of your travel budget on baggage that is over the weight limit? That money would get much better use towards your beachside cocktails, adventurous excursions, or unique local fashion and mementos! This is why you need to make sure you are packing everything you need and a few emergency items that will help you prepare for the unexpected.

First, whether you’re going away for business or pleasure, you need to do a little homework. Research and analyze your destination for information that travelers should be aware of. You also need to make a checklist and ask yourself important travel questions.

Pack like a Pro – Keep the Following Questions in Mind:

1. What will the climate be like at my destination?
2. How long will I be staying?
3. What activities will I be doing?
4. What image am I trying to project?
5. Do I have items that will make me feel comfortable and confident?
