Prepare a conscious and minimalist travel suitcase
It is essential to OBSERVE and BE AWARE to choose your luggage correctly. These simple steps will allow you to analyze the characteristics of the trip and choose the most appropriate belongings to carry it out, without any worry other than enjoying yourself!
1 Analyze the trip.
Where am I going? How am I going? How many days? What is the objective of the trip? What plans will I make? Analyzing the characteristics makes it easier (a lot!) to prepare your travel suitcase . It helps you plan better and more easily see what to include . You will not need the same to visit a city, to go to the beach or to take a route through the mountains. Or, if you go by car, motorcycle, train, boat, plane or on foot. Each transport, place and activity requires different needs, clothing and luggage. It is essential to take this into account and be aware of it to be right and make a good choice.
2 Create a list with what you may need.
Make a list of all the personal things you may need given the characteristics of the trip. Warm or summer clothes, sports or dress clothes, a swimsuit, a book... Write everything you think is necessary, even if it seems like a lot, once you have everything ready you can decide what is essential and what you can do without .
3 Limit yourself to what is necessary, without forgetting the essentials.
Don't forget to add your basic belongings or personal care products! Focusing only on clothing can make you forget essential things like your toothbrush, medication, or sunscreen. Prioritize what is necessary, what you can use for different needs and avoid “just in case”. We always include the tinted moisturizing cream with SPF20 sunscreen to care for, hydrate, beautify and protect the facial skin at the same time and save space in the toiletry bag. As well as the soothing body cream to hydrate the skin and soothe it from sun irritation, itching, burns, summer allergies or insect and plant bites. The point is to choose as few things as possible, but that are useful, essential and necessary.
4 Sort belongings and roll up clothes.
Closing the suitcase with all the belongings inside can become… “a circus”. To avoid this, try to roll your clothes instead of folding them and putting the ones that take up the most space on top. Vacuum packing your luggage or using organizers to keep everything close at hand is also a good option.
Filling your travel suitcase with unnecessary things will make you more concerned about carrying it around than having fun. Live and fill your backpack with experiences and happiness !
