What I Pack on My Travels with Boogie and Marcelo

Packing for a trip can be complicated, especially when you have small furry friends to think about. Here’s a list of what I generally pack for a 7 – 10 day trip with my dogs. 

While this list may seem like a lot, everything should still fit into one bag. I save space by organizing carefully and grouping items together by genre. For example, all of the toiletries go in a toiletry bag, the first aid items are packed together, and all of my electronics go together in a zippered pouch. My laundry bag can be folded and tucked into a lightweight, tiny square, as can my travel backpackIf there’s anything that I don’t have with me, I buy it while traveling.

Even when I go on longer trips, there’s really nothing more that I would add (except underwear and socks!). 

Without further ado, here is my packing list: 

2 pairs of jeans 
2 pairs of shorts
1 jumpsuit
1 bathing suit
8 t-shirts
2 long-sleeve shirts and/or sweaters
1 light jacket
2 bras
1 pair of flip-flops
1 pair of sneakers
8 pairs of socks
1 pair of dress shoes
