What you should and shouldn’t take on holiday
Important documents, such as your passport, should be the first thought and item on your holiday checklist. Don’t forget to stock up on any medication.
It is vital that you also ensure that your suitcase isn’t too full – you will no doubt be taking home some reminders of your holiday. Choose one or two pairs of shoes, so that they don’t take up most of the available space, and avoid taking heavy or unnecessary objects you probably won’t need, like a winter coat.
Your luggage should also be well organised, so that you can take advantage of the whole space. Rolling rather than folding will keep your clothing more free from creases and offer more space. Fill shoes with items like belts and a hairbrush and if you are taking liquids in the cabin with you pack smartly by placing them at the top of the bag/case so you can grab them easily and quickly – you don’t want to have to unpack in front of that long queue at security!
Organising the perfect holiday requires a little bit of planning, but in definitely worth it. Knowing what you need is with you thus allowing you to relax and enjoy your holiday in the Algarve.
