What do I need with me on my next adventure?

This question isn’t aimed at you “frequent flyers”, I know you will be able to answer this question in a flash. This question is for the rest of us who go on our adventures once in a blue moon, ok maybe twice…

So tell me something, how many times do you find yourself in this position? You’ve decided on a destination, you’ve managed to book time off work and you’ve booked your flights. Then comes the hard bit, trying to put pen to paper (or finger to tablet/phone) to jot down the A, B, C and all the rest of the essentials that you plan to fill into your backpack… no wait your suitcase… hang on hang on, I’ll come back to this point. So yeah, don’t you wish you had a ready made list so you knew you weren’t forgetting anything?

Worry not, I have the answer, well, maybe not the only answer but an answer.

While preparing for my last trip I had the same thought going through my head, as until recently I would go on holidays very infrequently, so by the time my next holiday arrived, I’d forgotten what I’d taken with me on the previous trip.

I set up this spreadsheet with four columns (yes a bit OTT I know, but it does do the job). So my four sections are clothes, accessories, documents, and electronics. Now before I go any further I have to say sorry girls, if you’re hoping for a ready made packing list I’ll have to disappoint you. I’ve made this list for myself and being a guy there may be things that I have not got on this list that you would like to have with you…
