It makes sense to have a checklist so that you don't suddenly remember something that you forgot to bring, or something that you forgot to do, just as you get seated on the airplane. We have put together a list that should be useful in helping you remember most of the things that you need to do, then you won't have to worry about having forgotten something once you've left home and are on your way.
A very useful idea from other travellers is to purchase a clear-plastic containers and, about a week before your travel date, start putting items that you need to take with you in it. Then, when it's time to leave, simply transfer the items to your carry-on bag, purse or suitcase.
Check with your accommodations manager before you leave to see if they supply hair dryers as you won't want to travel with any bulky items that you don't have to.
Please send us an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) to suggest items that might be missing from this list and you may of it so that you can print it and use it for checking off items at home.
Please remember to tighten the lids on any bottles of liquids or lotions (shampoo, sunscreen, mouthwash, etc.) and seal them all in Ziploc bags before putting them in your suitcase.
