Packing too much or too little while you plan for a two week travelling doesn’t usually end up well. When you pack too much, you create a liability for yourself to carry extra luggage anywhere you go. And if you are convinced about packing very few items in order to make the travelling convenient, you might forget to pack important things such as your important travelling documents or your medicines. Both these approaches need to be avoided if you want to avoid any kind of frustration during your stay far away from home or country.
If you are going out on a hiking trip, you don’t need sophisticated clothes. But you need a good number of clothes that would easily fit in the backpack. The best consideration here is to roll the clothes rather than packing them. Some of the backpacks come with the storage capacity that can be extended with the help of specifically featured zipper.
If you are going out on a business trip, you can’t roll your clothes because that will kill sophistication in your costly dresses. Hence, folding and that too very carefully is the only option you are left with. Try downsizing if you don’t want to carry huge volume. Keep the only clothes that you think can suffice throughout your trip.
Moving to a cottage for a month
Moving to a cottage located at a distant part of the country is a mini version of moving to a new house. Hence, you will need to make proper living arrangements in order to spend your time at that place without any difficulty. You might also realize here that it’s not the clothes only that you need. You need to take a lot of things along with you to that place in order to make your stay convenient. Hence, this scenario might involve use of shipping boxes and packaging supplies for the packing of household items that you might need there. However, packing dresses and clothes in the packaging boxes might not be a good idea. Large luggage bags and suitcases should be used for packing and containing considerable amount of clothes.
Packing for air traveling
Packing too much is a bad idea, even if you think of it as necessary, if you are going to travel by air. Usually a luggage bag and a backpack should be enough for a person. Avoid adding any kind of gel or liquid in the luggage. Upon the breaking of bottle, everything in the luggage will be ruined. You can pack these items separately in checked luggage.
Read the air service rules regarding the size and weight of the luggage you may carry. Some of the airlines are charging even for the checked luggage.
Moreover, locking the checked luggage can bring unnecessary trouble as security staff members select these kinds of bags for random screening, where the security personnel may even break the lock to check the content inside.
