Does anybody else’s mind go to mush when you have to pack to go on a trip? Yes, mine too. More so for me, because I have not only a standard suitcase to pack, I also have a camera bag to pack too, to ensure I have batteries, battery chargers, lenses and the cameras themselves, tripods and anything else I might want to take with me.

If you’re like me and have many medications that you need to take on a daily basis it’s important to check more than twice that you have these ready and packed for your trip, the last thing you want is to get 3 hours away from home to have to go back to get your medication.

Walking up and down mountains in snow will require for sure, coffee. We bought ourselves a coffee flask so that we can keep ourselves warm and hydrated on our adventures.
Don’t put a skirt on for climbing a mountain or trousers that look good but are too small, This is something I would do but I have planned the most sensible.. and fashionable obviously outfits that does not involve anything remotely movement restricting or potentially revealing.
Toothpaste especially. Usually depending on where you’re staying, they give you complimentary little wash bundles, but toothpaste is never usually part of that bargain.
