How to pack ?


So you have all the things ,double checked from the list and laid out in front of you.Now let's pack intelligently.

1.Keep everything dry,in case of rains .Put a huge plastic bag in your backpack,then everything else in.If the lining is orange, it can be used to signal an emergency.

2. Buy small sachets of your toiletries,like shampoo,toothpaste,conditioner etc. Why carry a huge bottle of it,which would last you atleast 2 months for a week long trip.There are things which aren’t sold in sachet packs ,for those items ,try this trick to minimize weight.

3.There is nothing worse than opening up your checked baggage to find that your liquids have leaked all over your clothing.Put plastic wrap over the top of bottles to keep them from leaking.For extra protection ,put the liquids in a ziplock  plastic bag.
