Your Packing List
What You'll Need For Different Climates and Cultures
We love to travel, and 2020 was supposed to be a big travel year for us. Like the rest of you, that didn't happen. 2021 hasn't been so good either!
We're still dreaming about travel, reading about new destinations, and making (tentative) plans for the future. We hope all of you are well and staying safe... and that you find some inspiration here for YOUR future travels.
Let's hope we can all be traveling again in 2022!
A packing list will help when you're getting ready to pack for your
What you need to take with you will depend on your destination
and travel style.
You'll need different things for a safari than you will for a cruise.
What you pack for Antarctica will be different than what you will take to Hawaii.
Are you going to a health spa? A dude ranch? On a diving trip? A driving trip abroad?
All of those things will affect how you pack. We have lists for those below... and all kinds of tips about packing and luggage.
A packing list helps you packing light... and helps pack the car! A challenge for 4 of us in Poland.
We always start with our basic list, then fine tune it for our current destination.
It takes some planning to pack well... there are so many things to consider....
- today's security alerts...
- and baggage fees too.
If you're going to travel with carry-on luggage, you need to think about...
- What you can fit in that plastic bag?
- How do you pack your cosmetics?
- Your medications?

Basic Packing List
- This is where we start for every trip. You can travel almost
anywhere for two weeks to two months if you just tweak this list
Packing For A Tropical Vacation - What we pack for warm and humid weather... whether we're scuba diving, hiking rain forests or relaxing on a beach.
What To Pack For Cold Weather
- A cruise to Antarctica tested our packing skills the most. Cold
weather does require more and heavier clothes, but you can still keep it
to a minimum.
Mixed Weather - We Have A List For That
- Shoulder season is when we love to travel, and that can mean warm
AND cold weather. You can still manage with only carry-on luggage if
you plan for layers.
To make things easier for you, we've compiled a few more of our packing guides and tips for packing right and getting through airport security:

These are all just guides. Use them to make your own list. Lists help
you stay organized. You'll worry less that you might forget something
Even if you do forget something, just remember that you can probably get it almost anywhere in the world.
Happy travels... even if you don't travel the world... just remember that life is a journey... embrace and enjoy it! Judy and Mark
