In a little less than a month, I will be jet-setting off to Rome with my grandmother. She won a trip and I won a seat at her side to be a travel agent, guide, bellhop, and most importantly, companion. I love travel and I love my grandma, so this is a pretty great job.
Even though it is a couple of weeks away, I find that it is a great time to start thinking of what you want to take and begin making your list. This way your “oh yeah and…” moments come before your trip instead of when you are already on the plane.
I made this checklist to help you out. I tried to be as mindful as possible about both men and women, but guys, let me know if I fell short on some things you like to travel with! Either way, this is a great place to start your packing list!
