Easy Tips to Pack up for long trips
METHOD 1 OF 3: PACKING YOUR THINGS
- MAKE A LIST OF ALL THE THINGS THAT You intend to take it on the road. This should include clothing, footwear, personal hygiene items, documents, maps, a guidebook, something to read, hotel and car rental information. Pack your luggage back home. The schedule will also come in handy, as you will have a record of everything you took with you.
- OFTEN FORGET TO TAKE: Toothbrush / paste, socks, sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, pajamas, razor and Deodorant
- DON’T THINK THAT YOU HAVE TOO MUCH ROOM … Do you really need five shoes for three days? And four coats? Consider the weather and what you plan to do. You can view the weather forecast for your destination at www.weatherchannel.com or www.gismeteo.ru
- THINK IN ADVANCE ABOUT WHAT YOU WILL WEAR SO AS NOT TO ACCUMULATE UNNECESSARY ITEMS. Once you know what the weather should be like, you can think about your clothes. If not, go for a versatile item that will suit you as the weather changes Will make it easier to adapt. Try to get things that you can wear multiple times. By dressing in layers, you will not only hide the fact that you are not wearing a blouse for the first time, but also keep yourself warm.
- ADD COLOR TO YOUR WARDROBE TO EXPAND YOUR SELECTION. If you bring with your things that go well with many others, you can mix and match them.
- TAKE A DIRTY BAG.
- If you do not have the opportunity to wash your clothes, it is best to keep them in a separate bag so that clean clothes do not get in dirty clothes. You have to put things away every time you change clothes.
- REGARDLESS OF HOW LONG YOUR TRIP IS, BUY TOILETS IN MINI-PACKAGES – TOOTHPASTE, DEODORANT AND MORE
If you haven’t lived in a remote area for several weeks, you can always replenish your soap and paste stock at your local store. If you are flying by plane, there may be a restriction on the amount of liquid and gel you can take with you to the cabin. This means that airport security may force you to choose between toothpaste and shampoo. Visit the airline’s website and follow the rules of transportation
- KEEP ALL TOILETS IN A SEPARATE BAG. You don’t want them tearing or leaking everything in the suitcase. And again, these would mean that you have to spend for these processes.
- IF YOU STAY IN A HOTEL, then shampoos and conditioners cannot be taken with you, but use what the hotel offers. Other essentials, such as toothpaste, can be purchased upon arrival.
If you are going through customs, check your items before putting them in.
It should be completely empty (especially if the suitcase is not yours), because when you go through security, you and only you are responsible for the contents of the luggage. The bag usually has pockets hidden in the middle and side. Open them and double-check them. Better a poor horse than no horse at all.
- IF YOU CROSS THE BORDER, you must seal the briefcase (for example, wrap it with film or tape) so that on arrival, before going through customs, you can make sure it is not opened. Keep heavy items under your suitcase, especially if you keep it upright. Walking around is very painful if you are trying to carry a suitcase that turns with every slight twist and breaks when you leave it.
- PACK YOUR THINGS ACCORDING TO THE LIST…. Approach the process well: You don’t want to be afraid to separate the whole bag to make sure you don’t forget anything
- IT’S BETTER TO PACK THINGS UP THE GOOD OLD FASHIONED WAY.
Place two or three items on top of each other, flatten and twist them like a sleeping bag. This will save space and protect things from wrinkles. To prevent wrinkles from appearing, place a thick cloth or paper between items before wrapping your clothes. Don’t worry about clothes that get wrinkled easily. Many motels/hotels/hotels have iron and ironing boards in the room, not to mention hotel laundry.
Packing sweaters, jackets, and underwear in a reusable vacuum bag give you about 75% storage space. These bags don’t stink, so they’re great for washing dirty clothes. Vacuum bags (such as Ziploc) are very practical. It’s about putting things in a bag, closing them
This item has to be put in a bag, sealed and the supplied air pump has to be put in a small one-way hole. Pump the air out. It is easy.
- WRAP DELICATE ITEMS such as jewelry and glasses in socks and place them in the middle of the bag in the shoes. So they will definitely not go bad.
- BUY 2 WIDE SNAP RINGS.
Try to find them in large supermarkets or shopping malls: they look like shower curtain rings, and you can open them and put the items together. Attach important items, such as a passport case, to your wallet or luggage and attach it to your suitcase. Large, heavy suitcases, which you can ignore for other reasons, will be a clear target for thieves. Carry documents, passports, money, and valuables on your shoulder bags or even on your body to protect your destination. However, there is no need to hide anything you urgently need.
- TAKE SOME FOOD IF YOU ARE HUNGRY.
If you are going for a short trip where you can find some food, have a light breakfast or if you have a long bus, train or car journey, have something more satisfying. If you have an allergy, medical condition that requires certain foods (such as gluten or nut-free) and you don’t have much choice along the way, have a heavy breakfast with you.
- IF YOU GET BORED, STOCK UP ON FUN.
Diaries (and pens), travel-sized games, maps, books, and mobile devices will help you stay bored on long journeys.
- REMEMBER TRAVEL SHOULD BE FUN AND COMFORTABLE, NOT STRESSFUL!
- Don’t worry too much about organization and planning. Let the travel agency plan your trip if it is too stressful for you. Sites like Tripadvisor.com and seatguru.com can read reviews of places, hotels, restaurants and airlines and find good places and hot deals.
METHOD 2 OF 3: PACKING FOR AIRPLANE FLIGHT
You should know this. It is forbidden to take it on a plane There are size, weight, and even food restrictions for safety reasons.

- They should be close enough that you can retrieve them for inspection during the search. There are clear standards for liquid and gel transport:
- You can take a maximum of 100 ml of liquid / gel. Each capacity (not all) For example, you can take a 40 ml bottle of shampoo, a 40 ml tube of toothpaste, and a 100 ml bottle of cleanser.
- You must keep all containers with the liquid in a special sealed bag with a volume of about 1 liter (bags can be provided if needed when you cross the LoC, but only if I’d better have such a bag with you).

CHECKING YOUR LANGUAGES
IF POSSIBLE, TRY NOT TO CHECK YOUR LUGGAGE, especially if it is not included in the ticket price.
Many airlines (usually budget airlines) earn a reasonable amount of money for transporting passengers’ luggage. Even if you are not embarrassed by the extra cost or the luggage is included in the ticket price, waiting for luggage, which is redistributed on execution and arrival, will delay you at the airport for at least half an hour.
Sometimes suitcases do not arrive on the same flight as you, and then they can be sent much later. If you are traveling with children, if possible, allow each child to carry as much luggage as possible so that you can carry as many items as possible in the cabin. Wear your heaviest clothes (jeans, shoes, and sweatshirt) to save space.
Consider using lightweight pants that take up little space and dry quickly instead of jeans. Check in advance the allowable weight of luggage you can take with you to the cabin, and don’t forget that it will have to be placed on a shelf above the seat – which means the luggage must be compact enough so that your neighbors have Enough space to store their belongings.

If you’re still looking for a bag, to avoid this process, you’ll want to buy a specially designed item (usually consisting of a laptop sleeve that separates it from the rest of the bag). So that it can be x-rayed without (taking it out of the bag.)
KEEP ALL IMPORTANT THINGS IN A SMALL PURSE.
Most airlines allow small and medium bags to be carried in luggage so that people can bring their broken bags and diaper bag. Since you are probably storing over a large bag in an overhead bin, do not keep anything you will need during the flight (such as a sweater, book, or breakfast) as you will be standing in a line. There must be and rumor in the middle of the flight.

KEEP VALUABLES WITH YOU.

Carry valuables with you at all times, especially if you plan to walk, eat or sleep.
IF YOU DECIDE YOU DON’T WANT TO TAKE FOOD WITH YOU,
find out if there will be a chance to eat on the train. Most trains offer snacks, or they stop at places where vendors deliver food, or you can run to buy something yourself.
