Going for a long vacation, prepare the packing list. First get a four wheeled soft luggage and a backpack. Stuff your toiletries, electronics, clothes, personal care products into the luggage. While packing your backpack ensure it is lightweight on the top, heavy in the middle and medium on the bottom and sides. Never opt for books, just load free e-books on your device. For those travelling to a colder destination it is important to take some warm clothes. Be minimalistic to save on extra luggage charges and quick movement.
