So you’re going away by road, rail, water or air.
LOOK AHEAD-weight limitations, present climate of destination(s), style of accommodation (a home, hotel, private rental etc), possible social events (smart restaurant, party, formal function etc), holiday or work wear
PACK mainly for the daytime. Roll up clothes. If possible, choose creaseproof non-iron clothes for less fuss. Try to pack just a few colours so you can mix and match. Remember sports clothes. Pack only basic toiletries and make-up. Some products can have double uses such as a moisturiser can remove make-up too. Lightweight scarves are useful plus a few pieces of cheap jewellery. Choose footwear for daytime with just one pair which doubles for evening wear. Underwear-one to wear plus one to wash. Leave room/weight for purchases.
