The Ultimate Travel Check List

July 20, 2015
holiday travel check list

I’ve travelled more in the past two years than I think I did in the previous 27. I’ve done long haul flights from Indonesia to Australia, super quick flights from London to the likes of Holland and Ireland. I’ve done activity trips, relaxing breaks, beach holidays and backpacking adventures. It’s safe to say I LOVE to travel. I also love to write lists, I am a list writing freak! A little fact about me is that I write at least two lists everyday (a work To Do list and a personal To Do list) and more if I’m shopping, planning something, packing, blogging etc. So in this post I decided to combine these two loves and create the Ultimate Travel Check List for not only myself for future trips, but for anyone out there who is planning a holiday, be it a yearlong backpacking adventure or a quick beach getaway, bookmark or print this list to make sure you don’t forget anything:
