0Recommended holiday packing list

Avoid the stress of pack­ing by hav­ing a pack­ing list ready for any trip. Even if you’re an exper­i­enced trav­el­ler you might spot a few use­ful tips, and for those less exper­i­enced this will hope­fully take the stress out of pack­ing.


I have broken the list down into sec­tions to help keep it organ­ised. Don’t for­got to put all liquids into check-in bag­gage — if you are fly­ing with only hand lug­gage you will have to leave the liquids behind and buy when you reach Crete.
