Here are a few tips to make your vacation more memorable

Always pack a towel

It's the key to successful galactic hitchhiking and plain common sense. You never know when you will need it, whether it's at the beach, on a picnic, or just to dry off. While many hostels offer towels, you never know and carrying a small towel won't add that much weight to your bag.

Buy a small backpack/suitcase

By purchasing a small backpack (I like something around 35/40 liters), you will be forced you to pack light and avoid carrying too much stuff. Humans have a natural tendency to want to fill space so if you pack light but have lots of extra room in your bag, you'll end up going "well, I guess I can take more" and then regret it.

Pack light

It's OK to wear the same t-shirt a few days in a row. Take half the clothes you think you will need…you won't need as much as you think. Write down a list of essentials, cut it in half, and then only pack that! Plus, since you bought a small backpack like I said, you won't have much room for extra stuff anyways!

Take extra socks

You'll lose a bunch to laundry gremlins, wear and tear, and hiking so packing extra will come in handy. I only take a few more than I need. Nothing beats a fresh pair of socks!
