Travel Tip 3: Packing, packing, packing!

Well packed is half the battle! Little helpers like Packing Cubes keep your suitcases tidy to keep clothes, cables and other small things in place. So the chaos doesn’t stand a chance. Inform yourself in advance by reading travel blogs or travel guides, which items are a must for your journey: At some destinations, you will be very happy about a raincoat, at others you will only need a light robe. With the help of a packing list in paper form or as an app, you can keep a good overview of the contents of your luggage – and consider exactly how much of it you really need!
