Top Items to Pack for International Travel

Are you ready for your International trip! How exciting! My husband and I have done several trips and being the concise packer I am, we’ve discovered that packing light is the way to go! Here is a basic list that may help you in packing for your journsey:

  • First start with an excellent suitcase. We use Calpak and love it!  Tough, durable and fits easily in the overhead compartment of a plane. Here is a basic idea to help you find what you need: https://amzn.to/2W8iWy3
  • Always take an extra backpack. Our backpacks have gone through several trips. They are made well and sturdy! We LOVE our Eddie Bauer 20L “Stoaway” Backpacks! Reasonably priced, amazon sells them for $20 each! A great deal! https://amzn.to/2ubIQ88
  • Valid passport (email a copy of your passport to yourself as well)
  • Shot record, if necessary & record your blood type if known
  • Airline tickets
  • Debit/Credit Cards (make sure you email account #nos & contact numbers to yourself in the event of theft)
  • Cash, Money Belt or Travel Pouch. We use: https://amzn.to/2ucAm0x
  • Cellphone & chargers. European chargers
  • Sunglasses
  • Ideally pack 2 pairs of pants, 1 pair shorts, 4 solid-coloredshirts, all-purpose jacket, sweater, undergarments, socks
  • Ladies: a basic solid-colored dress
  • Vitamins. We use Garden of Life, which we highly recommend.  For women https://amzn.to/2Y7h6za and for men https://amzn.to/2OdsEME
  • Comfortable walking shoes & some comfortable flip-flops
  • Sleeping clothes
  • Rain poncho/hat
  • Toiletries
  • Ear plugs
