Advantages Based on a lot of experience
Disadvantages You may not have the same ideas about what's an essential
I should be getting ready for my holiday - I leave on Friday night and so far I've not been able to get my act together. Give me a month or 10 minutes to prepare, I'll still leave it all to the last minute - but I've packed so often I know I'll not forget anything really important. So here - perhaps a little unseasonal for most people - are my top ten tips on what to take on holiday.~~But first, a warning~~
Any list of indispensable things is very personal and dependent on the type of holiday that you are taking. One person may believe that a holiday without ceramic hair straighteners and a travel iron would be hell on earth whilst another can't leave home without a survival blanket and a slab of Kendal Mint Cake. We are all different.I have travelled a lot - both for business and pleasure - so I've probably made all the packing mistakes it's possible to make and have developed some well tested ideas about what's really essential. Forgive me but I've so much I want to say on this topic that this is going to be a bit of a long review.
My favourite type of holiday is usually to somewhere a bit exotic, a bit rough and underdeveloped.So my assumptions are;
Even if your ideal holiday is 2 weeks on the beach in Spain, I hope there will be a few useful tips in this review.Number One - All your necessary paperwork
Take a small bag that will hold all of these things as well as your money and leave it in your room safe (if you have one) or at the hotel front desk safety deposit. Your insurers are more likely to pay out if you can show you've taken these precautions.Hot Tip - Before you go, send yourself an email to an address that you can access from an internet café in case of emergency. This should include all the info you could possibly need in the event of theft or accident. Prepare for the worst and hope you'll never need to use it.
