The Ultimate Packing List

In my previous post I talked about traveling to Ireland and that got me thinking. I hate packing and I’m pretty sure everyone else on this planet hates it as well, so I’ve made up the ultimate packing list. I did this with the help of Chapters Pack This sheet and looking online to what to bring. Not all the things on the list may apply to you but it’s on there anyways. Lets get started!

What Do To Before Traveling

  1. Check that your passport doesn’t expire anytime soon and if it does, get on that!
  2. Make sure all your cards (visa, debit,etc) do not expire anytime soon, if so go get new ones.
  3. Call all card companies and let them know when you’re leaving and that you will be using your cards.
  4. Health Insurance/Travel Insurance.
  5. Change Canadian/American money into Euros. How much is up to you.
  6. Leave a copy of all information for someone at home.
