Weekend Getaway // What’s in my bag?

Hey Guyyysss

Guess what’s this weekend……..Easter “holiday”

That means it’s a long weekend (no work Friday and Monday). However, that doesn’t matter to me, but for those employed *yay!*
This is my first Easter weekend being home since 2012; usually we (my family and I) go camping on one of the neighboring islands. However I felt like doing something different this year, so my best friend and I decided to go to Montserrat!
It was probably her idea initially and I just jumped at the opportunity. =)

Weekend Getaway

Traveling means new postssss so be on the look out for those in the upcoming days, but to get it all started let’s check out what I’m walking with.
First off I’m allowed two bags anything more and we gotta pay.
Did I mention we were traveling via a ferry? *can’t wait to give a review*

Before you start packing for a weekend trip you should have an idea or plan of all the activities you’re going to be doing. Montserrat is a small island known for its volcano as well as hiking trails, so our activities will definitely include site-seeing of all sorts.

So what do we need?

Packing for such a short trip may include mix and matching items if you haven’t already coordinated outfits. However, there’s also the possibility of unplanned events so you always gotta be prepared. Versatile shoes are key as well, and makes for more space in your bag.


SHOES

sneakers + sandals

SWIMSUITSย 

(of course I have like 5)

CLOTHINGย 

jeans, shorts, tops (day/night), dress (LBD), sleepwear

TOILETRIES
deodorant, toothbrush, razor, comb/brush, makeup

ACCESSORIES

sunnies, caps, jewelry, backpack/crossbody

ELECTRONICS

portable + wall charger, camera

There you have it! All that’s really needed for a weekend getaway of exploring an island. We’ll see how it all works out!

What do you pack in your bag for a weekend trip?

  4. I find that when I pack for anything I also leave it to legit the last second and always forget something. Guides like this are really helpful for planning!
