Pack your luggage for Hawaii

Due to the fact that airlines charge for the second time – or in some cases even for the first time – and the weight limit of “50 pounds per suitcase” is imposed, the frugal passenger is forced to avoid the shelf Plan ahead wisely. The high cost of my luggage with the slogan “Do not check your luggage unless you can afford to lose it; If you have the financial ability to lose it, don’t bring it. ”I traveled, so I never traveled anywhere with more than my luggage. . While it is always good to travel as lightly as possible, with the advent of new strict restrictions on carrying luggage and growing older (and at the same time increasing the desire to travel comfortably) I have learned to travel with just one piece of luggage. To. continue. The key is smart packaging so you can pack less.

Be smart about your luggage: Most airlines allow you to carry a handbag and a personal item such as a wallet or laptop. I put a bit of pressure on this by bringing a handbag with a laptop in a computer package that has a camcorder, my SLR camera, and an emergency change of clothes (if all other luggage is lost). I am usually allowed to get rid of it. Since I do not trust the luggage carrier or the TSA inspectors and my luggage is more lost than I can remember, I pack my camcorder and most of my clothes in another bag so that they do not need to be checked. In this bag, I also carry a liter of water (purchased at the airport, after a security check) and some snacks.

You want at least one book to read on the fly. Tickets, booking confirmations, traveler’s checks, phone number lists, spare glasses and medicines should be placed in a waterproof bag in the handbag you want to hold tighter.

Keep in mind that more books, extra batteries, memory cards, videotapes, or movies for your cameras can be purchased at Wal-Mart or Costco on an almost cheap mainland island, and you don’t have to carry your own luggage. Fill with extra supplies. . If you are wrapping the film in your hand, be sure to protect it from X-rays.

Plan your activities: You may be planning some special activities in Hawaii that require special equipment or clothing – it is best to think about this when packing your bags. If you go diving, many people are trying to save money by bringing their own equipment. If you pay to buy an extra baggage on the plane, this economy is wrong. Buying diving equipment on the island is relatively cheap and renting it is quick, easy and even cheaper. The same can be said about renting diving equipment and golf clubs. Activities such as hiking and horseback riding require a relatively special wardrobe, but if you have the right planning, you just need to bring your hiking / riding boots and extra pants and a suitable shirt for the activity. If you plan to visit mountain peaks, keep in mind that they can be quite cold – even snowy or rainy – so plan and pack. If you have boots with you, I recommend wearing them on the plane to save space and weight in your bag. In the case of photographic equipment or musical instruments – any expensive or delicate device for that matter – my philosophy is to never relax with it. Never check your cameras, guitar, laptop, etc. – this is a loss order.

Climate planning: Temperatures in Hawaii vary by about 10 degrees between day and night and throughout the year due to the tropical nature. During the hot day, plan a cool wardrobe. The windy side is generally rainy, and “mountainous” cities (mountains) often experience afternoon rain. The evenings are very cool, especially indoors, as an evening breeze or on land usually blows. Your wardrobe can cover all these situations without being bulky, heavy or ornate.

Specifications: A suit is unnecessary in Hawaii. Even the judges of the court of first instance wear plum shirts here. A nice shirt, usually a plum shirt, and a pair of khaki dresses is the most beautiful wardrobe of choice in restaurants and nightclubs – everywhere, shorts and sandals. I recommend a full wardrobe consisting of a polo shirt and a pair of plum shirts, a pair of long khaki dresses and three pairs of shorts, a few tops or a t-shirt. That’s all you need to cover most of the bases. Women may want to wear a light sundress or skirt. Sandals are all you need or want for shoes (your feet will be warm) – unless you want to run a pair of shoes for exercise or walking.

Bring two swimsuits – you’ll be amazed at how much fun it is to be in the water in the tropics, whether to cool off in a pool after a hot day or go turtle and fish diving daily, so you’ll probably want to Day swimwear rarely dries during the night, and wearing warm, dry clothing is much more pleasant than wet and cold clothing.

If you plan to go horseback riding or explore higher altitudes such as Hawaii Volcano National Park or Mauna Kea, be sure to bring jeans and hiking boots, a warm jacket and a raincoat / windbreaker. A compact travel umbrella is always a good idea.

Do not forget to pack your toiletries and personal items. I used to carry these in case my luggage got lost, but the limitation of liquids and gels and razors makes this impractical. Medications, of course, come in a box. Sunglasses, sunglasses, sunglasses and sunscreen (I use aloe vera gel) make your vacation softer, but if you do not have enough space for them, you can buy them cheap locally.

As a side note, there are two things you should be careful about in Hawaii – if you start to feel thirsty, you have been waiting a long time to drink water. If you start to feel the sun, you have to wait a long time to wear sunscreen. Drink more water than you think you need, use sunscreen before going out, and use it again most of the time when you think you need it. Your body is accustomed to a milder climate and does not warn you in time of danger.

Many people plan ahead by leaving enough space to bring souvenirs and gifts. Modern restrictions on the number of loads allowed make this impractical. Instead, I spend a month before my trip with weeds in my closet, picking up a nice set of clothes, and the rest of the clothes I take are items that are saved for the store. Therefore, I simply leave them at the end of my stay and as a result I have enough space in my suitcase for everything I buy. Remember that the US Postal Service sells boxes at fixed, prepaid, shipping rates at very low rates. Ask for “fixed rate shipping boxes” and send those gifts home safely, cheaply and quietly.
