When planning a trip to a completely foreign location it can be difficult to figure out what to pack. First, you have to consider the weather and the activities you’ll participate in. Next, you need to determine if there are any extra items to pack outside your normal packing checklist. And lastly, you need to make sure it all fits in your suitcase!
