Unpacking Tips from the Brooklyn Travel Agency: A Sequel
Not too long ago we emphasized several important considerations for packing suitcases before that flight to Israel or parts unknown. This time around we want to emphasize another important aspect of travel: unpacking at the final destination.
First of all, ponder if unpacking is absolutely necessary. For vacations lasting less than a week, taking everything out just to put it all back a short while later may be more of a hassle than it’s worth. Living out of suitcases may be annoying, but unpacking and repacking is even worse. This is especially important when a trip involves stays at several different locations.
Longer journeys typically require some unpacking. At that point, the hassle is reversed and unpacking is more convenient than hunting through a bulging suitcase every day for a month. Travelers may still prefer to keep some items in the suitcase, but many objects gravitate to dressers and closets around the room.
If unpacking is necessary, first look around the room to ensure cleanliness and gauge storage space. Then place objects in their designated location. It’s often helpful to bring something that reminds you of home. For example, a fluffy bath towel, small potted plant, or picture of the family can lend a homey feeling to any hotel room.
Vacations can be stressful when not planned properly, but really fun when thought out. The experts in everything from cheap tickets to luxurious business class travel are here to help plan any amazing vacation.
