Going on a Weekend Trip: The Basics of a Weekender Bag

Packing has always been a challenge especially when you’re going on a weekend trip for 2-3 days out of town. So much it would depend on where you’re going, the weather and your own personal style. It should be simple and you should pack only the essential things needed for the trip to make travel light.

If you are traveling for business, work or for an adventure, know what you’ll need for the trip. Then you can start thinking about other things that you would want to bring.

Working on a weekend?

Start by packing work related stuff, such as laptop, phone, charger, files and paperwork. Digital nomads out there usually bring work everywhere. Keeping your handy and reliable tools of the trade keeps you on top of everything even while on a weekend getaway.

Secure personal identification

If you plan to travel abroad, secure all travel related necessities like your passport, credit cards, medication, and identification.

Pack light

Leave stuff behind that can be purchased later when you get to your destination. If you are traveling by plane it is best to pack light so that you don’t have to check your bag, a good quality duffel bag would be a good choice. 

To help conserve carry on space, wear the same outfit on both round-trip flights. Wear your heaviest items, such as boots and winter coats on the plane especially when your destination has a different climate.

Zip locks are your best travel buddies

Use plastic bags or zip locks for packing your jewelry, chargers, accessories and toiletries. Plastic bags can serve as laundry hampers for short trips. If you do not want to use the free shampoos and toiletries your accommodation offers, store them in small plastic bottles instead to save space and avoid spilling on your weekend bags.

Pack a favorite book or download a new novel from Kindle

You might have to stay for hours on a plane or while travelling by land as you go to your weekend destination. It’s the best time to catch up with your favorite book or start a new novel you have been planning to read.

Research about your destination ahead of time and always prepare and secure reservations or tickets to places you want to see. Save articles and online information on your phone so that you have an idea of what you want to do when you get there. Set an itinerary to make the travel worthwhile and your time well spent.

Lastly, leave stress behind and enjoy the weekend getaway. Get plenty of rest and make the most by enjoying travel and life.

About Me

My photo

A graduate of Civil Engineering but a writer by heart was the main reason why I figured out that the corporate life was not for me. I enjoyed being at home, far from the competitive atmosphere of a typical 8-hour job. I hated the idea of extending work hours at the office or bringing work at home. I cringe about the idea of having to prioritize work over my family and living. Luckily, i managed to break free from the corporate world after seven grueling years. Although I must say that I have learned a lot both personally and professionally from my office job, I would never see myself turning back after being able to achieve my dream of being at home and working online. As I try to reach my first million while working online I also plan on entering a home-based business in between blogging and taking care of my kids.
