Itinerary

Don’t let the formality of this word scare you from trying to craft a schedule of your vacation. Your itinerary can be as formal or as casual as you’d like it to be. The more energy you put into planning what you’d like to do before you get to your destination, the easier it will be to relax and enjoy yourself. Certain activities or attractions would require different clothing or gear. Call your hotel’s concierge and ask what they recommend to their visitors. They should be able to provide very localized information, as well as any shuttles or group programs that could make your ventures even easier! Whether you print out a formal itinerary or just make a to-do list in a note on your phone, making an itinerary is a time saver. Don’t miss out on new adventures wasting time looking for things to do each day. Go explore!

Packing

With your itinerary set, you should have a clear idea of the kinds of clothes you need to pack! To save room in your luggage, pack mix and match items to ensure outfit versatility. Another good idea is to pack clothing that can be worn in a formal setting or more casually when paired with the right accessories and shoes. You’ll also want to make sure that you have comfortable clothes. You will need them for both active adventuring days and for the days you’re traveling. This is where your trusty pair of Victoria’s Secret Pink come in handy! You already know they are cozy and won’t be a distraction from any of the activities you have planned. If you need to buy more active wear for the trip but are worried about the costs, try your hand at thrifting Victoria’s Secret Pink clothing at an online consignment store. This way you can get your favorite comfy pants that are stylish yet flexible and still have spending money for your vacation!

Shoes can be the bulkiest thing you have to pack so choose wisely. Pick shoes that are absolutely warranted for your vacation to-do list. If you don’t plan on going to a nice dinner, you can get away with not packing any heels. Pack a comfortable pair of sneakers to wear for hiking or travel days. Then depending on the weather, you might consider sandals or rain boots.

Apps

Certain vacations may call for having extra resources at your disposal. Some destinations might have a language barrier while some might have more hidden attractions off the beaten track. There’s a chance your regular weather app isn’t as reliable since those tend to deliver the most accurate information when they’re localized. Consider downloading useful travel apps so no matter what situation you come across, you can handle it like a pro. Try remembering to do it ahead of time when you know you’ll have WiFi and avoid using up your data before the trip.

Having these apps will give you the added comfort of having a plan and backup resources. There’s also the added bonus that you can avoid your first fight, because no one will even need to ask for directions!
