Holiday Packing List

We’re off on our hols to Halkidiki next week, and having got the house straight and the laundry done after our hectic weekend, my thoughts are now turning to packing.  So today I thought I’d share my holiday packing list with you.

As you know, I love lists, and this is one that I keep on the computer and print out about a week or so before we’re due to go on holiday.   I then start putting things out on the spare bed ready to pack, and crossing them off the list as I do so.  It really helps me avoid forgetting anything, and I really couldn’t do without it now.

My most favourite thing when I’m packing to go on holiday is deciding which books to take, and I did this yesterday.  For a fortnight’s holiday I’ll usually take half a dozen books, as I do a lot of reading on holiday.  I’ve got two book club books to read for next month, so I’m taking those, and another four as well.  I’ll do my usual Holiday Reading post when I get back, so you’ll have to wait until then to see which books I’ve chosen.

Right, I’m off to dig out the passports!

  1. Excuse my ignorance but where is Halkidiki? It’s not a name I’ve heard before. I am so there with your lists, my family always think I’m mad so glad someone else does it.

    • Hiya Kerri – it’s on mainland Greece. We’ve been twice before and just love it, so we’re going back again. Although judging by the weather in Devon today, I don’t really need to go abroad to get gorgeous sunshine at the moment!

  2. I love how “beach towel” is above “passports” on your list. I like your prioritising 😉

    Have a wonderful, wonderful time!
