The Pre-Trip Packing Problem
Packing. For many of us, it’s our favorite part of the pre-trip because the vacation is officially a reality. You have everything to bring right in front of you and you can already smell the ocean air and feel the cobblestone streets beneath your feet while some beautiful foreign language hums in the background. It’s exciting. Don’t deny it.
The problem is, in this pre-trip daydream we think about every part of the trip and over plan with a “thing” for everything that is coming. Soon enough, 2….no, 3….or, heck, 4 bags becomes ok. And you know it’s wrong. But, this credit card you have gives you 2 free checked bags and you already have everything you need in your carry-on, so why not take advantage?
