I can’t hide my excitement on our most-awaited vacation. We will leave on Friday (hope it is sunny by then) but as early as yesterday all our bags are packed and we are ready to go. We are just waiting for Friday to come. I maybe packed things too early but because I have a child, I don’t want to miss anything important most especially her medications.
Whether we are having our vacation in the suburb or to another city, it’s a big family acitvity that requires a whole lot of packing. Aside of course from our needed clothes I see to it that we also have other essentials such as first-aid kit including medications, toiletries, ziplock bags, sunblock, important accessories (caps/hats, sunglasses, slippers), light weight sweaters/jackets, cellphones, chargers, camera, extra duracell procell batteries, credit cards, a list of emergency phone numbers, snacks, and last but not the least cash. Lot of things that made my packing look so stressful but because I always make my list ahead, everything turned out easy. Still, I made sure that we can lift and carry our bags with ease.
It is important to travel light so pack only the things you need. If you have baby or toddlers, here’s the list that you might want to consider:
Bottles or sippy cups
Distilled or purified water
Baby food and snacks
Medicine for fever, allergies, cough and colds
