Packing Tips: How To Pack The Right Way

For someone who loves to travel more than it is normal, I sure struggle when it comes to packing the right way. I always seem to carry too much, but still complain of not having what I need (extra sunglasses, cover-ups or that fifth pair of shoes) during the trips.

But slowly, I am starting to pay attention to packing the right way, and at times, I even find myself mentally memorising packing tips from various articles and some top travel bloggers in India. Learning never stops, right?

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, said Lao Tzu and for me the first step is to be able to pack smartly, and not over stuffing my suitcase. Laugh if you want, but I am a victim of over packing. I always tend to pack a lot of unnecessary just – might – need items. My luggage is invariably heavier than it should be – but I’m learning.

Like I mentioned above, I am improving. I now make lists and stick to them. I even spent a camping trip in Israel with just one tiny backpack – which is like unlocking a new achievement for me.

And recently, someone asked me for my own Packing Tips and it was equal parts bizarre and hilarious. It made me realize that I am expected to have smart answers to all things related to Travel. All because I travel a lot, and I write about travel a lot. Seems only fair, and after careful consideration of my travel pattern, I am all set with my packing tips. Ta da!

    A perfect travel guide in terms of arranging clothes, accessories and necessities together, Aditi. I didn’t realize and quite lame with stuffing everything together. When I come back, I am over stuffed and end up paying a bomb at customs. The last time I carried a huge bag in plane and at the Dubai stop over, neck aching for sliding the bag on shoulders. I gotta be more careful next time I plan and will take into account the tips.

    I have been travelling since many years and follow my own list. In fact I have several lists as per destinations (beaches, mountains, winter, summer etc) and if I am traveling solo, with partner or in a group. 🙂

      So true, every destination should have a different list. I’ll make a few now, thank you for the superb suggestion. I am always making season wise packing list also, will work on it too now.
      Thank you so much for dropping by, Nisha 🙂

    […] I travel often and as much as I can, and I can travel equally easily after a planning for six months or six hours. Some of my family members say that I’m a pro at travelling and I don’t deny it, haha. I mean, there is a scope for improvement for me when it comes to packing less clothes, but overall I am pretty cool with packing and travelling. […]
