When traveling, it's important to pack appropriately. Here's a simple list of what to pack for any vacation.
Tops – 5 tops in a combination of short sleeves, long sleeves, and shirts/blouses. Sticking to a neutral color palette will allow you to mix and match pieces with several outfits.
Bottoms – 2 pairs of versatile, smart-looking pants such as lightweight trousers and a pair of jeans.
Warm Layers – 1 button-down cardigan and 1 pullover sweater or lightweight fleece.
Socks & Underwear – 1 weeks’ worth. Lighter fabrics like synthetic blends dry faster than cotton.
Sleepwear – a comfortable t-shirt or paired with stretchy pants can double as pajamas and loungewear.
Jacket – bring a lightweight water-resistant jacket.
Scarf or tie – to add a bit of flair, a transition from day to night, or achieve a more polished look in an instant. Something in a bright color or fun pattern is a great way to jazz up neutral layers.
Shoes – 2-3 pairs max. One pair of comfortable closed-toe walking shoes plus one comfortable flat sandal or alternate closed-toe shoe. Bring a pair of flip-flops to slip on in your hotel room.
Kindle or Tablet – these are great alternatives to laptop computers, allowing you to do everything from browsing the internet (when a Wi-Fi connection is available) to reading books and even interacting with family back home.
Foreign Adapter – bring the proper type of adapter for the country you are visiting so you can use your electronics abroad.
Batteries & Chargers – don’t forget to pack these for all of your devices! Or consider a universal travel charger to charge multiple things at once.
Digital Camera, Charger, and Memory Card– many cell phones today have high-quality cameras. If you decide to bring an additional camera on vacation, be sure you’ll feel comfortable carrying it around with you all day. And don’t forget the memory card and batteries/charger!
Cell Phone & Charger- Your cell phone will not work outside the US unless international service has been activated through your provider. Keep in mind that international fees can be quite costly. If you need to make a call, consider downloading Skype on one of your devices and use it to make calls when a Wi-Fi connection is available. We are pleased to offer complimentary Wi-Fi service on-board our touring motor coaches.
Cell Phone – note that your cell phone might not work outside the U.S. unless international service has been activated. Check with your provider ahead of time to avoid any unwanted fees. For calling or texting family back home, download Skype or WhatsApp onto one of your devices and use it whenever a Wi-Fi connection is available.
