Passport – Or driving license if it’s a domestic flight.
Travel documents – Hotel/Flight/Excursion details. I’m extra and I like to bind mine, put one in my suitcase and have one in my hand luggage. It’s all well and good having it on your phone, but sometimes it’s great to have something tangible you can scribble on.
Camera (Optional waterproof cover too) – Don’t forget batteries or your charger.
Phone – Doubles as entertainment, GPS, translator and to inspire holiday envy on Instagram.
Kindle and charger – Or a good old book you can get wet in the pool…
Plugs – I recommend bringing an adaptor which you can plug two or more things at once, hotels seem to have a lack of plug points.
Linen trousers or jeans if you dare…
Evening dresses – Especially if you wanna go all out, alternatively you can jazz up a day dress with a statement necklace or pair of earrings.
Beach towel – Always check if your hotel provides these before taking otherwise you have more room to bring back souvenirs.
Dressing gown – Most hotels provide these, but if you wanna feel at home, take your own…
Bras and multi-bra – Or you can just tuck your straps in (I do this because I’m lazy).
Slips – To stop that dress or skirt riding up…
Evening bag – Your day bag is probably covered in sand so an evening clutch is a must!
Flip flops – For the beach!
Sandals – Break them in before because blisters on holiday are HELL!
