Ontario offers a number of beautiful locations in which to spend a day or two when you have free time from work. The province is known for its spectacular sights, surroundings, and history. But with your trip all planned, it’s now time to consider how to effectively pack for the journey. Our team at Howard Travel has great experience in this area and within this latest post, we’ll present a few tips for packing for 2-to-3-day trips in Ontario.
Try not to be weighed down
First, consider the absolute essentials for your day trips in Ontario. This means any medications that you take should be the first item to take into consideration. Make sure medications are easily accessible regardless of your means of transportation. Another consideration is any documentation you’ll need. For example, if you’re going over to the U.S. for the weekend you must bring your passport and any other form of identification you might need. Pack the essentials first and then move on to other travel items.
Keep toiletries and other liquids separate
We’ve all had a travel experience in which our toiletries have leaked onto clothing and other packed items. Make sure you separate any liquids when you pack to avoid having to clean your clothes when you arrive at your destination. If possible, bring a plastic bag filled with toothpaste, shower gel, shampoo and other toiletries so that any leaks can be easily contained.
Consider the weather forecast
Take a look at the weather forecast for the few days ahead at your destination. It might be the peak of the summer season, but our weather in Ontario can change rapidly. You may notice a steep dip in temperature or a potential storm at your destination. Pack according to the potential weather and then you won’t be uncomfortable should your environment change suddenly.
Always keep electronics in the same place
When packing, make sure you have a dedicated space for your electronics and electronics accessories such as phone chargers and laptop batteries. These items should be kept away from liquids and in a location where they won’t be easily moved during travel.
