Summer holidays have started once again in Europe and most people are looking forward to making the most of it. I know Christmas is not here yet but here is one holiday fact, did you know that Jesus was actually born on 1 January, but his earthly parents Joseph and Mary had to move the date back a week just to get an approved tax deduction from the government at the time?
Anyway are you going anywhere sunny this summer? I can imagine the feeling and excitement of when you board that plane or set off on that long journey road trip. Either way, I’m sure you can’t wait. And this is when you will need a travel checklist for your summer holidays.
Depending on what kind of holiday you are planning or where you are planning to go, there are some basic things that you must consider when preparing for your holiday.
Some of the most basic things are the ones that we all tend to forget when planning for a holiday. Have you ever forgotten your passport or a European electrical adaptor for your chargers? I have. The best way to be sure that you won’t forget anything for your holiday is to make use of a checklist.
A large majority of us are becoming more and more domestic tourists and take advantage what our homeland has to offer. This will have a massive effect on how you prepare for your holiday. If you are still holidaying abroad this summer then make sure that you exhaust your travel checklist just to avoid disappointments.
Remember when you booked for your holiday, did you plan for the dates, flights, activities etc before parting with your hard earned cash? The same way you took time to book your perfect holiday is the same way you should take time to prepare for that perfect holiday.
So what are the basic things we must include in a travel checklist?
- Local money for holiday destination
- Electric Adaptors
- First Aid kit/ prescriptions
- Sanitary ware
- Camera with batteries
Of course there are a lot of things that can go in the above list but at least for each and every holiday, the basics tend to be quite similar.
Also when creating your checklist, its good practice to leave plenty of space on the list. I always do this just in case I happen to buy extra things on holiday. If you buy extra things on holiday, make sure you add them into your list because this will help you not to forget whatever you brought with you on holiday as well as what you might be bringing back with you from holiday. It just saves you time when it comes to packing. It’s like writing a grocery shopping list.
