If you are organizing a trip to Paris, here are several factors that I think you may find useful. These are some actions that follow after you have picked out your Paris hotel and prior to leaving for the airport.
I have gathered a great deal of packing tips after years of travelling to the popular places like Paris and Rome and to the somewhat more obscure places like Budapest and Lisbon. I thought I should share them with other travelers setting out on their trips.
Safety and your Travels Security
When travelling to a far-away place away from your home, it is very critical to take basic safety measures upfront to ensure a safe and harmless travel experience. One technique of ensuring your safety is to have scanned files of important documents and numbers like your passport, and all of your emergency contact numbers. Store these files in your email account so that it would be easier for you to search fo
r them if the need should come up. It is also essential to have a contact number for your bank provider so that you may easily inform them in case you happen to lose your card.
Preparing Your Clothes
It is quite essential for you to bring only the clothes that you will need for your trip with you. Taking too much clothes brings inconvenience and complication to your travel. If you’re traveling for weeks, just bring sufficient clothes and if you run short, you may wash and reuse an outfit. Just make sure that you are not using them in succession. Bringing clothes that are multi-purpose is also quite advisable.
Put your Valuable Items in Different Places
Separate your bank cards, cash, travellers' cheques and credit cards as much as possible in different pockets, your bags and wallet when packing. In case you do get robbed or lose one bag, at least you won't be tight on cash (unless you have all your bags AND your wallet stolen obviously!).
Back Packing Tips
When you are packing things into a backpack, place the lighter things at the bottom part and the heavier ones on top. Your bag will feel lighter in weight this way as the pack sits on your lower back. It is also smart to place the things you use the most on top. Dirty clothes are best to pack at the bottom of a backpack. It’s important you take the top to find the right size back pack for your needs.
