When getting into the mindset of packing for this trip down to the Bahamas, I was in a much improved state-of-mind than I was when packing for my Italy trip. Though I was packing for a totally different environment, I felt like I had nailed down the necessities, and those items that I could live without for a 7-day stay.
The goal of my packing guides is to stray away from the ‘bring-half-my-wardrobe-in-six-suitcases’ mentality. Lighter, smarter packing can be done, so here are some helpful tips when packing for an ‘island-style’ vacation.
*Note: I am omitting toiletries because what you bring totally depends on what you need on a daily basis. When it comes to toiletries, abide by two rules of thumb:
1. Don’t go overboard. There’s always a drugstore around if you find that you forgot something that you absolutely, positively need.
2. Do utilize travel sizes to bring your essentials.
