Secrets For Last Minute Packing For an International Trip

by: Nichole Gunn June 2, 2015

You would think traveling the world for a living would make me a packing professional.  Wrong.  I spend months planning travel programs, combing over every detail to make sure they go off without a hitch.  I spend hours before I have to leave for the airport frantically running around my apartment stuffing everything I think I need into a giant suitcase.

After planning something for months, you would think that I would know my departure date and plan ahead accordingly to make sure I don’t have a panic attack during the packing phase of a trip.  To attempt to alleviate some stress…I start making a list of what I think I will need.  The list stays on my bathroom mirror so I have to see it all the time.  The night before I leave is when I realized I should have packed, or at least started, a week ago.  As I sift through mountains of clothes finding the ones I want to bring and shoving them into suitcases as quickly as possible I tell myself…I will do this earlier next time.
