From clothes to documents and electronics to medical necessities, Shore Luv Travel has put together a guideline to help you get started and make sure you’re all packed and ready to go!
You don't need to pack everything on this list, it's just a guideline to help you decide what is most important to bring with you. Spread the items out on your living room floor and pick up the items you aren't sure about. Ask yourself, "will I really need this or use this on my trip enough to justify bringing it?" Separate your essentials from your desirables. When in doubt, leave it out!
