But first her are 5 friendly reminders …
Do not overpack!
We have many women attend our retreats who overpack. They have to pay extra for luggage and then inevitably when you travel, you end up getting some souvenirs. So it’s always good to have extra space in your suitcase for your return flight.
Pack items that dry quickly and are breathable.
Especially in the tropics. This also helps if you need to wash clothes during your trip as many foreign countries line dry. This will ensure your items dry as quickly as possible.
Create a list of any essential items you will need.
Certain items like name brand skin care products, prescription pills, and feminine products can be hard to find in certain countries. It’s best to pack these essential items with you.
Plan your outfits out ahead of time.
Lay them out on your bed. Pack articles of clothing that you can mix and match to give yourself additional looks while using the same amount of space.
Pack in layers!
Oftentimes, for retreats, you’ll have early morning sessions and you’ll be doing a wide array of activities. So it can be nice to be able to take off layers to acclimate to the various temperatures you may experience.
