When traveling, it is usually helpful to possess an inventory of the travel essentials you will want to pack for your vacation, whether it's your first time traveling or not. I don't travel that much since my husband works abroad. Family travel happens only every two years but I do visit my parents and travel with my daughter from time to time for a short period of time also once a year. So I make sure to have a comprehensive travel checklist that covers must-haves to an inventory of toiletries and other kinds of stuff. 

You can refer to this travel packing tips as your trip gets closer to inform you exactly what to pack, whether you’re planning a weekend vacation, or maybe a long-term around the world adventure. 

I'll give you the ideas on must-have items you may want to pack that you wish to enjoy in your vacation and travel essentials that make your trip run more smoothly.
