What Not To Pack When Going on a Trip

Trips are always fun and exciting and it’s very hard to make sure that you’re packing the right things or not. While you might want to take a ton of things that you feel you might need, travelling light should be your motto. The following are few things that you should not pack when you’re going on a trip:

No Books

No Toiletries or Towels

stapel-grauHotels present you with complimentary toiletries and towels so do not waste space by bringing them along. Towels in particular are extremely bulky and can take up a lot of space. If you feel that you might be travelling in places where you will not have access to these toiletries, make sure you carry them in the smallest size possible.

No Valuable Items

Do not bring your jewelry with you on your vacation. Even if you managed to successfully evade the pickpockets, your luck might run out and you might lose them. Don’t bring anything with sentimental value either. You would feel horrible knowing you forgot your favorite book or teddy bear in a hotel in a different country and there’s no way of getting them back.

Easy Wear Formal Clothes

You might be planning on attending a few formal places but make sure that the formal shirts or dresses are wrinkle proof and have an automatic crease. Otherwise, they require too much maintenance and you may or not have access to a clothes iron. Moreover, there really is no way to pack them without folding them so wrinkle proof clothes are the best option.

No Frivolous or Last Minute Clothes

You might want to take your favorite clothing item with you but you really should resist the urge if they’re impractical.

A heavy wool coat which might be your favorite will be a bulky addition to your luggage and will take up needless space. However, do not pack your favorite bunny slippers either. While they might not take up much space, if you feel too shy to wear them, there’s no use to keep them in your back pack.
