    Begin by gathering the clothes you want to take on your trip. Find out how many days you will be on vacation and if you will able to do the laundry.
    • If you won't be able to do laundry on your trip, pack 1 shirt, 1 pair of underwear, and 1 pair of socks for everyday of your trip (remember the day that you fly home). Also pack 2-3 pairs of pants for every week of your trip.
    • If you will be able to do laundry, pack enough clothes to last you in between laundry days.

    Gather your toiletries next. Pack these in a zip lock bag, so that everything will be contained if any bottles or packaging explodes. Pack anything that you use everyday: toothpaste, hairbrush, face wash, etc.

    Find or buy anything else that you will wear or need on your trip. This includes swim trunks, extra shoes, and any tickets or papers that you might need for later in your trip.

    Instead of folding your clothes roll each one of them separately and place them one on top of another(for more space) and put them in the bag you plan to check or put in the trunk of the car. This can be a suitcase or duffle bag, depending on the amount of things you need to pack.

    Pack the carry-on. This can be a backpack or a small duffle bag. Be sure to include:
    • Any travel documents that you might need. This includes tickets, a passport, a photo id, and travel visas. Check with your parents to see exactly what you should bring.
    • A music player. Remember to bring headphones and any chargers that you'll need.
    • A small pillow. This can help tremendously when you are trying to fall asleep in a car, train or airplane.
    • A book, magazine or homework.
    • Candy, chips, crackers, or fruit. You don't need that much; about two handfuls of one of the above is fine. Try to pack something that you like: when you're on a long flight or stuck on a train, this might be one of the few treats you can find.

    Make a list of all the stuff that you have put in your suitcase and carry on what you need to put--just in case you get a feeling that you have forgotten something in the place you were staying in during the holiday just when you're about to leave for home.

    Buy a good lock for your suitcase. Be sure to test it to make sure it works properly.


  • Pack your liquids properly and try placing them in between your clothes to keep them from moving too much and breaking.
  • There is a limit for your baggage which is different for different airlines.
  • Remember placing your clothes in a roll is better than folding.
  • Don't take too much; you probably will not use it all.
  • Read up on any travel warnings and/or customs in a country that you may not be familiar with.
  • In case one of your suitcases or bags is too heavy, bring an extra bag in case you may need to transfer some items to make it weigh less.


  • Be aware of your surroundings. If traveling alone, you may be taken advantage of.
  • Remember to pack after the new airline rules. Containers that hold more than 100 ml are not allowed on your carry-on!
