Travel packing for summer

I have been away for the weekend and I was thinking to share with you my packing tips. I always have a checklist prepared, but it also depends on the destination or the season. This checklist might change slightly. Now, I wentΒ somewhere in the nature in the southern part of France and it was rain and sun in the forecast. This makes it a bit more complicated, but I wanted to be ready for any weather surprise. My holiday was actually a long weekend, so I spent there around three full days. Of course, I had this aspect in mind when I started packing, but I also added some items extra just to be sure πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ . You can definitely take less stuff with you in case the suitcase is smaller, or you don’t feel like carying too much with you.

Take a look on my checklist below and let me know if there is something you would add to it 😊.
