The ultimate packing list for a city break

The ultimate packing list for a city break

This checklist has been created keeping in mind recent short trips to and in big cities in Europe and South America.  It is ideal for those planning on going for a short or long trip in the city.

Furthermore, going on a city break is a great time to enjoy some fun activities and rewarding activities: museum visits, shopping and sightseeing are some of the activities to enjoy. I try to carry only hand luggage or a carry on for short trips in order to avoid wasting time at the airport (no luggage claim) and to move easily around the city, before and after check in and check out.

instagramIf you are in South America I would love to see your pictures.

Some additional tips before the checklist include:  you should also research the area, check the weather forecast, speak to locals or travel bloggers who can give you advice on that specific destination and some special needs to consider when planning what to do.
