LUGGAGE PACKING GUIDE FOR MEN

WHO IN THIS WORLD WOULD PACK A SUITCASE A WEEK OR EVEN A COUPLE OF DAYS BEFORE THE TRIP? EXACTLY, NOBODY! WE ALSO KNOW THE BEST FORMULA IS USUALLY, TO OPEN YOUR CLOSET AND STUFF THE FIRST THING YOU FIND. 

IF YOU WANT TO CONTINUE WITH THIS HABIT AND NOTHING HAPPENS THEN YOU HAVE MIRACULOUSLY MASTERED THIS DISCIPLINE, BUT IF YOU FOUND YOURSELF MORE THAN ONCE TO ARRIVE AT YOUR DESTINATION AND REALIZE THAT YOU LEFT E.G. YOUR PIJAMAS OR RUNNING SHOES. WELL, THEN IT IS JUST ABOUT TIME TO PAY MORE ATTENTION TO THE PACKING.  

GUYS WHO PREPARE LUGGAGE AT THE LAST MINUTE AND ALWAYS TEND TO FORGET SOMETHING NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT THIS GUIDE AND HOPEFULLY, NOTHING WILL EVER BE LEFT BEHING WHEN IT'S NEEDED THE MOST. 

 

SELECTING THE RIGHT SUITCASE AND NECESSITIES FIRST ! 

IT ALL BEGINS WITH THE SUITCASE ITSELF. IT HAS TO BE LARGE ENOUGH BUT NOT GIGANTIC AS IT HAS THE PURPOSE TO HOLD JUST THE THINGS THAT YOU NEED TO BRING AND NOT BE AN ADDITIONAL BURDEN. NOWADAYS LAPTOPS AND TABLETS HAVE TO HAVE A SEPARATE BAG AND PERHAPS A SAMSONITE BUSINESS LAPTOP BAGS FOR MEN CAN BE AN IDEAL OPTION. 

IF YOU ARE GOING ON A SUMMER VACATION , THE BEACH CLOTHING IS THE PRIORITY. BRING A SWIMSUIT, BUT IT IS KEY THAT YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE ON HAND. WALKING ALL DAY IN A WET SHORTS IS ONE OF THE MOST UNCOMFORTABLE THING AND A QUICK CHANGE CAN SAVE YOU A LOT OF NERVES. 

MAKE SURE TO PACK PYJAMAS OR SLEEPING SHORTS BECAUSE SLEEPING IN SAFE BOXERS IS FOR SURE THE MOST COMFORTABLE OPTION FOR ONE NIGHT BUT IT MAY NOT BE FOR THE REST OF THE DAYS.

NOW , FOR ALL THE ACTIVITY OUTSIDE THE POOL AND THE BEACH. PACK THREE T-SHIRTS, TWO SHORTS AND YOUR BELOVED FLIP-FLOPS. THAT WILL HELP YOU NOT TO BURN YOUR FEET OUTSIDE THE POOL OR WHEN YOU HAVE TO QUICKLY REACH DOWNTOWN.

BUT IF YOUR VACATION IS AT A PLACE LIKE WHERE YOU CAN MEET CERTAIN CULTURAL LIMITATIONS, WEAR ALL THESE PLUS PANTS AND A LONG-SLEEVED SHIRT. EVEN IF YOU THINK YOU ARE GOING TO DIE OF HEAT, MANY PLACES WILL NOT LET YOU GO INTO SLEEVELESS AND BERMUDA SLEEVELESS.

WHEN IT IS TIME TO GO TO THE BEACH, CARRY A BACKPACK OR A SMALL SUITCASE WHERE YOU CAN CARRY YOUR THINGS AND NOT PUT THEM IN THE LUGGAGE OF FRIENDS. 

PLANNING A BACHELOR PARTY? OBVIOUSLY THE MOST ESSENTIAL PART OF YOUR WARDROBE WILL BE PACKED BUT THERE ARE OTHER BASIC THINGS THAT, ALTHOUGH THEY ARE OPTIONAL , ARE THE LAST THING YOU THINK ABOUT WHEN YOU PACK. SUNGLASSES, A CAP AND A BOOK OR A MAGAZINE FOR WHEN YOU ARE DISPATCHED CAN ALL MAKE YOU FEEL INSTANTLY BETTER. 

IF YOU ARE HITTING SOME HIKING SITES DO NOT FORGET THE MOSQUITO REPELLENT IF YOU DO NOT WANT PEOPLE TO THINK YOU HAVE A CHICKENPOX. IT WON'T HURT THAT YOU CARRY A MEDICINE KIT EITHER OR AT LEAST SOMETHING FROM THE PHARMACY. PLEASE DO NOT BE THE GUY WHO IS USING SHAMPOO OR TOOTHPASTE FROM OTHERS, TAKE YOUR GROOMING KIT THAT WILL NOT TAKE AWAY SO MUCH SPACE. 

 

WHAT TO PACK FOR A BUSINESS TRIP ? 

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THE SUITCASE WITH WHICH YOU ARE TRAVELING. IF IT IS ONLY A SHORT TRIP , ABOUT TWO-THREE DAYS , CARRY A HAND LUGGAGE. HOPEFULLY A SIMPLE AND FORMAIL SUITCASE, LIKE A BLACK ONE WITH WHEELS AND NOT THE BAG THAT YOU USE TO GO TO THE GYM. 

WHERE A BLACK SUIT - WHICH COMBINES PERFECTLY WITH EVERYTHING - TWO PANTS OF A NEUTRAL COLOUR ( GREY OR BLUE ALWAYS WORK VERY WELL ) WHITE SHIRTS OR THE ONE THAT COMES OUT FROM THE COLOURS THAT YOU WEAR, SOME SHOES THAT FIT THE SUIT AND OTHERS MORE CASUAL BUT FORMAL PIECES ( LIKE MOCCASINS ) AND OF COURSE BOXERS, SOCKS AND PYJAMAS. 

IF YOU THINK YOU WILL HAVE SOME FREE TIME DURING YOUR TRIP , WHICH CAN HAPPEN BUT IT IS NOT THE MOST COMMON THING, WEAR A SLIGHTLY  MORE CASUAL LOOK LIKE A T-SHIRT, A JEANS OR CHINO AND TENNIS SHOES. 

AFTER PACKING THE NECESSARY WORK-RELATED CLOTHES, PUT YOUR DOCUMENTS, TABLET AND LAPTOP IN YOUR LAPTOP BAG LIKE THE ONE THAT PREVIOUSLY HAS BEEN MENTIONED. 

GET READY TO WORK INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF THE MEETING ROOM , LIKE AT THE CAFÉ OR ON THE PLANE AND PROBABLY IN THE HOTEL TOO. BEST TO BUY A TRAVEL-FRIENDLY ADAPTER SO YOU CAN DO MANY THINGS AT ONCE, LIKE ACCESSING YOUR FLASH DRIVE, CONNECTING TO AN EXTERNAL MONITOR FOR YOUR PRESENTATION AND CHARGING YOUR PHONE. DON'T WORRY, THE NIFTY DEVICE WON'T TAKE MUCH LUGGAGE SPACE. 

 

I'M OFF FOR MORE THAN A WEEK. WHAT TO TAKE WITH ME ? 

A TRIP THAT LASTS MORE THEN SEVEN DAYS IS USUALLY EITHER A FULL CITY TRIP , HAVING A TEN-DAY SUMMER HOLIDAY OR EVEN TRAVELLING THROUGH SEVERAL COUNTRIES. BEFORE YOU GET EXCITED AND START PACKING LIKE YOUR TRIP LASTS A MONTH, MAKE AN ACCOUNT FOR ALL THE THINGS YOU NEED FOR A PERIOD OF ONE WEEK AND PACK ONLY THOSE THINGS.

DO YOU ASK WHY ? BECAUSE THE MAIN THING IS THAT YOU TRAVEL LIGHT AND NEVER CARRY MORE THAN YOU NEED. ONCE YOU HAVE CONSOLIDATED ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU NEED FOR SEVEN DAYS OF THE TRIP, ADD A LITTLE MORE EXTRA THAT YOU SIMPLY CAN NOT LEAVE AT HOME. A VERY WELL WORKING TRICK IS THAT YOU SELECT MORE OR LESS THE SAME COLOURED CLOTHES , SO EVERYTHING COMBINES WITH EVERYTHING AND YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WEAR SPECIFIC PRINTS. 

A GENERAL RECOMMENDATION CAN BE THAT YOU PACK FOUR T-SHIRTS, TWO PAIR OF PANTS, A LIGHT JACKET AND OF COURSE YOUR PYJAMAS. AS FOR SOCKS ANS BOXERS, JUST COUNT THE NUMBER OF DAYS THAT YOU PLAN TO SPEND ON HOLIDAY AND ALWAYS ADD TWO ON TOP JUST TO BE SURE. 

NOT TO FORGET, YOUR SHOES ARE VERY IMPORTANT TOO. IF YOU ARE GOING TO WALK TOO MUCH, GOOD AND COMFORTABLE SNEAKERS ARE ESSENTIALS TO AVOID HEAVY FEET AND PAIN. 

 

WHAT IS THE CONCLUSION ? 

MAKE SURE TO PACK YOUR KIT WITH EVERYTHING ( BESIDES YOUR CLOTHES DO NOT FORGET SHAMPOO, TOOTHPASTE AND TOOTHBRUSH , DEODORANT ) AND ADD YOUR NAIL CLIPPER TOO BECAUSE IN ALL THAT BIG TRAVELLING YOU WILL SURELY GROW YOUR NAILS AND NO MEN SHOULD HAVE UGLY NAILS AND HAND. 

IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE TOURISTY, TAKE SOMETHING WITH YOU TO PASS THE PHOTOS YOU ARE MAKING, LIKE AN SD CARD, A USB STICK OR EVEN YOUR COMPUTER. DO NOT FORGET TO BRING ALL THE CHARGERS YOU NEED AND A POWER ADAPTER IF NECESSARY.

CHECK EVERYTHING AND IF ALL FINE; OFF YOU GO!  BON VOYAGE!
