School’s out, it’s Memorial Day Weekend, the sun is shining, can it be any more summery? Is that even a word? Whether you’re going to a summer camp, a mission trip, on a beach vacation with your fam, or a road trip with your friends, I wanted to share some tips for travel I’ve learned along the way!
- Roll Your Clothes
Ya’ll. I don’t care what packing tips you’ve seen on Pinterest or how many times you’ve tried to wedge those rainboots in your suitcase: rolling your clothes is the way to go. It’s quick, simple, and easy. You can see your clothes at a glance and can store more clothes than if you were just folding them- perfect for my overpackers. Better safe than sorry, right?
2. Bring Snacks and a Reusable Water Bottle
You never know what kind of food you’re going to get in a foreign country, a summer camp, or even just a random restaurant on vacation! This, my friends, is why we bring snacks. I love Chocolate Brownie Clif Bars, unsalted almonds, and don’t forget your gum! Also, it’s important to stay hydrated and a reusable water bottle is a great way to make sure you do so! Just fill it up and you’re ready to go!
3. Make a good playlist for the road
Because everything’s better with your favorite songs, amiright???
4. Bring some grocery and Ziploc bags
For when you’re heading home and your bathing suit is still wet. And for when you want to go hang out on the beach but want to check your insta as well. Just put your phone in the Ziploc bag!
5. A Good Attitude ( and imagination)
Sometimes, when you’re going somewhere you just really don’t want to go you just need to suck it up and pretend you’re in the Amazing Race. Anyone else do that? No, just me? LOL. Don’t judge me.
Speaking of the Amazing Race, is anyone in shock that Brooke and Scott are still in the race??? Like, that’s crazy! I mean, good for them but I did not see that coming! When The Boys got eliminated, I was really proud because of their awesome attitudes! You know, they could have just blamed it all on that taxi driver but they didn’t and took it like men! And also, everybody else better watch out, because my team, ahem, TeamLoLo is getting better and better. If they don’t win, I may cry.
