The Ultimate Packing List

This ultimate packing list has been curated, refined, and tweaked over the past decade and is what I refer to before every single trip, no matter the destination. I hope it helps you stay organized and not forget anything important! Above all else, the most important items to pack are:

  1. A Phone so you can communicate and access your travel plans

  3. A credit card so you can purchase anything forgotten.
