I am putting together a packing list of really useful items people can use when packing for their holidays and trips abroad. I'll put our travel check list in the post below, but would love to hear from YOU on what you would add to the list!
What are the essential items to pack and what can you leave at home?
I'll give one example I wished I had seen before my trip to Cambodia: before I left I bought a cheap, crappy rain jacket that wasn't really water proof or wind proof. Then when i was there i got caught in a monsoon rain while riding a motorbike. So I put on the jacket. Which falls apart and lets in all the rain and wind. I get sick. Really sick. And get hospitalised and my trip was ruined. Moral of the story:
Pack a high quality, lightweight, water-proof rain jacket!
