105 countries and counting…
When you have travelled to as many countries as Roxanna has, you learn very quickly what is essential and what you can leave at home. Packing items that can have multi uses is a great tip that she offers. For example a pashmina scarf can be used as a blanket wrap on the airplane for warmth, cover your head, shoulders and legs when necessary and also be used as a fashion piece. Using a soft sided bag will help get you a few more items in the bag and don’t forget to use the outside pockets as well. Take into consideration when packing items that will compliment multiple outfits for day and evening use, a maxi dress can be a great cover up after the shower or an evening dinner. Roll everything and avoid packing multi heavy items, perhaps only 2 pairs a jeans and take lighter weight pants as an option. Most hotels will offer complimentary toiletry items, take advantage of that so you don’t have to pack them. As well using the hotels laundry service at time can be very affordable and time saving.
