HOW TO PREPARE SUITCASES FOR A BIG TRIP

They will be many days of travel, so the assembly of the bag should be very thought out and strategic. Here are some tips on how to pack for a big trip.

How has everything ready for a long trip? When we set up the suitcase for a weekend getaway or a short trip, we put in there just a few changes of clothes, a more elegant garment, footwear and two or three essential elements of use. However, when we set up the suitcase for a long journey, the issue becomes more complicated. We must anticipate the needs of a long period of time in which we will have neither our wardrobe, or our shoes, nor accessories or items of daily use.

But while we can build a case for long trips in a simple and effective way. And, as I always recommend: you need first is a little planning.

The first is to look at the needs. You must consider what the accommodation, for example, to know if you need to bring bedding, blankets, pillows or even towels or personal hygiene items such as soaps, hair care products, and others. If you are going to stay in the hotel, see if they have the trouser press and hair dryer, to see if need to bring own, in the case soles use. We advise you not take “if” because they take up much room and, if you need them sporadically, you can apply at the hotel, cleaning clothes shops, or beauty salons.

Knowing the destination will also let you know if you should carry a basic first aid kit or more armed and compound. It is not the same kit which took him to a hotel that needed to travel tent. Similarly, knowing the destination will know their climatic conditions, allowing you to see if you should take strong, lightweight, coats or specific products, such as combing cream, insect repellent, sunscreen stronger or others.

What clothes to wear on a long trip?

Figures clothing depending on the activities. Remember that, in virtually any city; you can wash the clothing for reuse. While on a three-day trip loads with three to five sets of clothes, calculated on a long trip you can use the same outfit once a week, or two, or how you prefer. Choose clothes that combine well with each other, including footwear and accessories, to minimize the amount you should take. Also preferred clothing synthetic fibers, wrinkles less and can be used for longer without ironing.

Suitcase or backpack?

The choice of the case is another particular subject. You must surely have a good ability because you’re packing for extended trips. But at the same time, it should be comfortable to carry. Although rampant backpacks are large capacity, it will surely not be practical if your trip includes multiple locations or if you are staying in major hotels. Meanwhile, if your trip will be in tents and with many walks, the backpack will be much more advisable that the suitcase drag. The best are the suitcases or large bags with handles and wheels, which allow you to transfer easier, besides having great capacity.

How to distribute the items in the suitcase

To assemble the best case better placed the little delicate garments and footwear, as well as towels, sheets and so on, at the bottom of the bag (placed on a bed, on its side). Pants, jeans, and other customary garments must be well stretched on a flat surface and then rolled to avoid pronounced wrinkles and minimize the space they occupy. If you wear delicate garments, wrap them in white tissue paper, so they are not marked or dirty (or dye their) with other garments.

Remember to be efficient in packing: Put socks, scarves, accessories, belts and other inside the shoe. Put the underwear on the lid of the case, in a separate pocket to prevent damage or dirty, and to distribute it better, occupying less volume.

In hand luggage, fail to carry documents, papers, necessary medications and medical prescription, and also the elements of value and small technology such as cameras, video cameras, or wallet and credit cards, debit cards or checks traveler.
