PackPossible! Getting Ready for Georgia…

by Carla Canham, Greenheart Travel Teach Abroad Participant in the Republic of Georgia

I thought after traveling to seven destinations within the past two years would make me what one might consider a “professional” packer; however, from the abyss that is my bed, I clearly have some room for growth in this department. I do have some tips, tricks, and techniques for easier packing, though, and I’ll share them here:

Rule #1: Always, always, always start with a list. I know you’re likely to avoid taking advice from this chronic list-maker, but I’m serious. It’s a must. I even suggest using subtitles. If you can compartmentalize your suitcase for maximization of space, you can do so with you packing list. Take the challenge, people! Oh, and being a professional list-maker does not make you over-prepared or over-packed. I’ll help you stay over-organized, though, while avoiding those two stigmas!

Rule #2: Roll items of clothing (and any other items with roll-able potential) into logs.

Rule #3: To avoid the headache of trying to pack this very large stack of books (right), do not major in English. That’s about all I can say about the book problem.
