Holiday Packing List

Holiday season is upon us! Whilst I’m not going away until the beginning of September, I thought I’d share my European-beachy holiday packing list sooner rather than later.


  • Passport (photocopy it and e-mail it to yourself, just in case)
  • EHIC card
  • Boarding pass and tickets
  • Phone
  • Phone charger
  • Plug convertor
  • Money
  • Keys
  • Credit card

Clothing & Accessories

  • Smaller day bag
  • Socks
  • Shoes
  • Undies
  • Pjs
  • Sunglasses
  • Swimwear
  • Sandals
  • Beach bag
  • Tops
  • Bottoms
  • Dresses/playsuits
  • Hat

Cosmetics & Health

  • Medication (I suggest antihistamines, paracetamol , plasters, contraception and rehydration sachets)
  • Tampons and lady bits if applicable
  • Face wipes
  • Toothbrush
  • Hairbrush
  • Hairbands
  • Cotton buds
  • Suncream and aftersun
  • Perfume
  • Lip balm
  • Razor
  • Makeup


  • Headphones
  • iPod
  • Purse
  • Camera and charger
  • Towel


For bulkier items such as shampoo, conditioner, deodorant and toothpaste I suggest visiting a local supermarket to stock up. It’ll save you suitcase space and decrease the risk of explosions/leaks on the way there and the way back.
