Why Use a Travel Packing List?
If you travel a lot or even occasionally you might have discovered that there is an art to packing your suitcases for an easier trip. And it’s even easier if you use a travel packing list.
I made myself a packing checklist for traveling, and a separate carry on packing list which I keep in my suitcases and just get them out before every trip to make packing easier.
I’ve been lucky enough to travel extensively so I also have a few travel tips for you and my own packing for travel lists I use for all my trips. You can dowload the packing lists too and personalize them to make your packing easier. Bon Voyage!

The Most Important Thing On Your Packing List
Essential Travel Attitude
Besides all the things you put in your suitcase, I think there is an essential attitude to bring with you when traveling.
A Sense of Adventure: You would think that if you are traveling you would already have a sense of adventure, but when I travel I meet people who seem unaware that part of the travel experience is trying new things, seeing new sights, experiencing new foods and customs. For some strange reason some people leave home and try to recreate their home experiences elsewhere.
I once went on a trip to Cancun with a friend and while sitting in a coffee shop a tour guide told us about a place called XCaret which is an animal preserve in the Mayan jungle with a river running thru caves that spills out onto the beach. We had never heard of it before, but I am so glad we decided to visit.
We were greeted by hundreds of parrots sitting on low branches. We then rode horseback on the beach, saw Jaguars and Tigers on their own island, and floated thru magical crystal caves in a Green river before arriving at the Turquoise Blue ocean.
It was one of the best days of our trip and I will never forget that day. If you are ever anywhere near the Yucatan Penninsula, or even Cancun itself, I highly recommend you take a day to experience this fantastic place! Life is an adventure; take detours.
