Last Minute Travel Checklist

travel checklist

As many of you know from some recent posts, I am on my way to Mexico on Monday! I love love love travel, but I hate hate hate packing. No matter how many adventures I go on, I always get stressed out the week before I leave trying to remember all the little things on my pre-travel to-do list. I never forget to shop for a swimsuit or make sure I have enough mascara in the tube, but I always forget the really important things. The business-of-life things as I like to call them.

When I last got on a plane I forgot to checkin before-hand from home and then there was a massive car accident that closed the highway around the airport. I arrived ONE minute after checkin had closed and they wouldn't let me print my boarding pass! I had to watch my plane take off and buy a whole second ticket in order to make it to my first day of grad school on time. 

Needless to say I will be printing my boarding pass from home on Sunday night. 

And in order to prevent any repeats of Aircanadagate 2015, I have made this handy checklist to help us all (mostly me) remember those little things we're bound to forget in the excitement of adventuring.


If you sign up for my email list over in the sidebar where is says "subscribe", I will send you a FREE pdf of this checklist so you can download it and be just as organized as I hope to be!  

(Don't worry, I loathe email spam and am constantly unsubscribing from lists so I email my subscribers VERY sparingly. I promise not to flood your inbox.)  

I'm hoping to be blogging from Mexico but we'll see how strong the wifi is and how many margaritas I drink! Maybe one day I'll be one of those bloggers who pre-schedules lots of posts to go up while I'm on holiday... But I think I'll need a whole other checklist for that!
