Babywipes, makeup, moisturiser, toothbrush

Want to travel light so have decided on packing the following:

One pair shorts

Swimmers


What do you think? We're away for a beach holiday for 2 weeks.... Would love to hear any packing or flying tips!!

water and toothbrush/toothpaste are the big ones, really make me feel human on long flights. I love my around the neck pillow but I always sleep all the way.

I love having an umbrella where ever I am. what about big fluffy beach towels?? sunscreen! smile.gif

A watch is handy on holidays/alarm for flights and tours.

I like to still do a mud mask or two while on holidays hehe, sunglasses

hair bands/clips for windy days.

gosh I have to pack for my cruise honeymoon tomorrow!!.

Wow you travel light!!! Even for a beach holiday I always end up taking a million changes of outfits. (Yes I'm hopeless, last time I even brought several different pairs of thongs to match each bikini - that's embarrassing to write!) biggrin.gif

You do travel very light , but in most parts of the world you can buy almost anything . There isna't to many places where yo can't pick up a new shirt , shorts , or bikinni , especailly if it is a beach location.
(last holidays i had to buy a new pair of shorts to go with the new shoes i bought , YES I AM OCD)

wow you're great at packing light! I'm terrible at that hehe!
Only thing I'd suggest is when flying, especially overseas, take a change of undies in your carry on luggage! last thing you want is for your luggage to go missing and having to wear the same pair of undies for 2 days straight till you can buy some new ones LOL!

Flown a few times between here and London...

I always take as carry-on:
spare t-shirt
fragrance-free deodorant (it's a lot of people in a confined space and you don't want to p!ss someone off if you're too smelly with BO or similarly have too much perfume)
toothpaste & toothbrush
spare nickers,
moisturiser (fragrance-free)
a book - something trashy that you don't mind falling asleep with, or chucking out when you get to your destination
warm socks (I get cold feet easily)
chewing-gum (for help with changes in air pressure)

don't worry about packing water - they come around heaps with that on the plane, and you can always buzz the attendants to bring more if you need.

I love the tip about baby-wipes! Good one - I'll remember that for next time... I think you can get purse-packs of those somewhere...

Best thing we took on our honeymoon was after sun gel and moisutriser. Both make sure that you tan rather than peel from that dried burnt sking thing that happens after getting sunburnt.

Also, take something like cards or something, just in case you have a rainy day and you want to fill in time.

Ummmm, that's about all I think biggrin.gif

Oh, try going to the local shops and buying a big bottle of water and some munchies to have at the resort as it will be a lot cheaper than drinking and eating the resorts munchies in your room biggrin.gif

Have fun biggrin.gif

My lifesavers on long-haul flights are eyedrops (like Visine, or Liquid Tears) and eucalyptus oil. The latter I just drip onto a tissue and put the tissue down the front of my top. Great for clearing the passages and providing a bit of a germ-free barrier. Lots of people ask me what that lovely smell is, too!!

DEFINITELY toothbrush and toothpaste, and a bit of your own soap or cleanser is a wonderful luxury on a plane.

Do you have an i-Pod or MP3 player you can load up with nice soothing classical music? Always helps me fall asleep on a plane!!

Have fun!!

Me too, love her music but Diana Krall has been putting me to sleep for the last few flights. And Norah Jones is a good one too (saying that I was almost asleep at her concert too! oops! love her style though)

you need slip on shoes also.

Don't forget Sarongs.

I would pack a few of pairs of shorts. You dont want to have to do the washing on your honeymoon. And you could go on a boat cruise or something and get your shorts dirty

Don't forget a hat.

Forget a beach towel (someone suggested that). They take up too much room and gone are the days where you had to have the best beach towel. All resorts have towels for you to use.

I would take a light wrap also. You might find a cool night where a denim jacket is too much, but a light wrap is perfect.

Beach Bag.

Sunscreen. And because of the sunscreen, you might want to pack a couple of extra singlet tops ? I tended to keep the tops I wore while having sunscreen on me, separate to those I wore to dinner etc

When packing, put small items of clothing inside your shoes. And roll instead of fold.
Iron everything before you go, so that when you get there, if it needs ironing again, it will only require a light press.

If you wear the jeans, what top are you wearing with them ? a singlet top or will you need something else ?

Don't forget your sunglasses!!!
