Print this list and check off as you pack


So much to be packed, it’s easy to forget things! Sure, you can usually buy again somewhere along the way but why waste the money.

Our travel wardrobe consists mainly of micro-fibre clothing wherever possible. It’s easy to hand wash and rinse in a bucket and it dries very quickly. We only ever need to visit a laundry to give the bed linen a wash.

Start your packing with this list and you’ll be sure to have almost everything you’ll need.
