I am always dreaming about travelling there and there. But I never realise that it’s not that easy to ‘pack your bags and go’. You have to thing about the best time when to book your flights, your hotel, food, transport, clothing and so on.
Then the day comes and I have actually booked everything and the day count begins for my holidays. To be honest, I don’t really think about the fact that I am going somewhere until the last 4 days, because it just makes me very nervous.. especially the flying part.
And I start to think about tasks that I have to put aside while I’m away which does not make me very happy because I get homesick.
So this is what I do to make everything as easy as possible for myself.
It helps me so much! I note everything I need to pack, especially if there is last things I need to grab and put in my handbag in the same day of departure, because of the stress you I simply run out from the house and forget about them.
I also think it is important to note emergency phone numbers and addresses for the city you are going to. You never know if something happens and you need for example an ambulance (Hopefully not). Who do you call? What do you say? (Especially if people speak in different language around you).
I know that you don’t need to start packing your suitcase 4 or 5 days before you go. But I have experienced stressful times because of this. If you know that the day is coming close, just have the suitcase in your room and slowly start putting in your things.
If I know that I have clothes which I want to take with me, and I know that I am not planning to wear them the next days, just put them in. It will save your time, and give you more time to think of what you need and also remind you of what you have forgotten.
Also I can get stressed about things very easily, and I have experienced so much bad times when the stress kicks in and there is nothing I can do. So I always look in my bag if I have travel or some stress relief pills with me.
I would advise to think through twice of the things you have prepared in case you have missed out something.
When all of the preparation is done, just have a quiet time and think of how much you deserve this and how much fun are you going to have. I like to look at other people posts with their travels and it just makes me excited about the fact that I will have this experience as well!
