Putting together a packing list before you pack is very wise, then you reduce the risk of forgetting something important. What you need to pack for a trip is very individual, and there are many factors that come into play; where you are going, how’s the weather, what to do etc. so it`s not possible for us to write a list suitable for everyone and all destinations.
A general tip is to not pack more than you need, most airlines allow 20-23kg checked in baggage, and some airlines are strict regarding overweight. You may want to leave a few kilos to spare for souvenirs and other shopping.
Our experience is that it’s very comfortable to travel only with carry-on, so if you can fit everything in your hand luggage that is great – you’ll save lots of time on the airport! (Most airlines allow 6-10kg carry-on baggage).
