My Travel Checklist

I’m the type of gal who does not want to forget items I need while travelling. I live by the Girl’s Scout’s motto, “Laging handa.” (Always prepared) and writing ‘To-do-list’ is one of my fetishes.

As a result, I came up with a list of travel essentials (for women) I have noted and identified since I started traveling. I wrote down all of them in a Mini Memo pad, which I keep inside my wallet.

 

So now, every time I have travel plans (be it overnight or a week and even for months), I always refer to my “Travel Checklist” (found below) for the things I need to bring for my trip.
