I prefer light weight travel if it is short trip obviously... As number of days increase you need more and more stuff. we have to take care of luggage specially when we travel through flight. As all airlines have limited baggage allowances per passenger. So during your vacation don't forget to pack 10 things which i mentioned.
Check out following Essentials for tours and travel
1. Toiletry Kit
Most of the hotels provide toiletry but you never know each country has different pattern of hospitality. I generally avoid using different shampoo and conditioner. So I carry my own toiletry kit. You can buy toiletry kit from any super store. It contains plastic or fabric pouch and having squeezing bottles. You can choose the size of kit according to your requirements. I usually prefer four bottles. You need to carry shampoo, conditioner, face wash, body lotion, tooth paste and tooth brush. These are essential you can include whatever you want.
2. First Aid box
If it's just 2 days journey than you might not required medicine but I usually keep first aid kit in my car. Specially when I go for vacation I check weather first. If you flying overseas than weather at destination will be different. So at least carry medicines for cold, cough, pain killer and any specific disease if you have. Take adhesive bandage, cotton, ointment, scissor etc.
3. Cellphone chargers and required plugins
As we know US and Europe has different type of electric sockets. So if you traveling in these countries than you required additional plunging for your charger. So make sure to carry otherwise you won't be able to use your electronics.
4. Sun glasses
5. Reservation details and Itinerary
Before you start booking make your Itinerary. It would be great if you plan your each day of trip. So it will be easy to identify where to stay and which places to visit. First and foremost thing is do cross check the booking dates of your flights and hotels. If you booked car or any group sight seeing package than get print outs of that as well.
If you flying overseas than you must carry passport and visa. And check prior about visa requirements and validity of visa.
7. Make up kit / shaving kit
Depends on your destination and number of days you staying you can decide what you want to carry and what can be avoided. Try to minimize so that you can avoid weight. And also if you plan to keep your makeup kit/ Shaving kit in your carry on bag than check the airlines rules for liquid in carry on bags.
