How to travel light – A guide

When it comes to travelling, I’m the kind of girl who packs enough clothing to last at least a month, and I’m sure I’m not alone. It appears to be an impossible task to travel light, especially as a girl, because we not only have our clothing and shoes, but also our haircare, skincare, makeup, and other essentials.

I recently took to social media to find our what your travel essentials are and here’s what came out on top

  • A good quality lip balm!
  • Comfortable sandals and trainers 
  • Comfortable outfits

How to travel lighter

It’s a case of having to travel light for me, so I thought I’d share some of the tiktok and instagram ideas I’ve picked up as well as my own tips and tricks, as it’s always interesting to hear other people’s opinions. As I often emphasise, I will be absolutely honest about these suggestions, because I prefer to be completely transparent.

Trying to transition my looks from day to nighttime is one of the things I’ll attempt to do on my upcoming trip in order to reduce the number of clothes I need to pack. It saves so much time to be able to alter your daytime outfit into a nighttime one, and I know a lot of people who are doing this lately. It can be easily done, regardless of whether you have a more colourful wardrobe or a neutral one like I do.

Packing light clothing is an apparent approach to travel efficiently, which I’m sure many of us already do. Who wants to be in heavy sweaters and jeans at temperatures of 30 or higher? I know I don’t so I’ll definitely be packing lots of light clothing. 

If you’re anything like me, you’ll want to pack a variety of shoes for your trip but they can be quite weighty. It’s fine to take multiple pairs  but try to avoid bringing bulky shoes and sandals, and travel in your trainers. 

Finally, let’s talk about toiletries. Although I would love to take my entire toiletries collection, it’s simply not practical. Instead, I advise determining which toiletries are absolutely necessary, such as a roll-on deodorant and sunblock, and packing those only. Shampoo and conditioner are usually provided by the accommodation where you are staying. Therefore, unless you’re a girl of habit and have to take your own, you shouldn’t worry too much about packing those.

It’s time to fly!

Although I’m sure there are many other factors to take into account when it comes to travelling light, these are the steps I’ll be following on my upcoming trip. Don’t forget to give me a follow over on Instagram to see how my “light” packing goes!
