I’m leaving on my next adventure in less than 5 hours and as usual I’m struggling to figure out what on earth I need to take with me! I think this post is as much for my benefit as it is for yours. I’m sure I’m not the only one who finds packing to be a slightly painful task. Don’t get me wrong there’s always an element of excitement because it means I’m about to jump on a plane and go somewhere new! My next destination…? Hawaii!!! Last year I visited Oahu but this time around I’m exploring Maui and the Big Island. So here’s a quick list of all the essential items you need to pack when your escaping to somewhere tropical.
- GoPro/ Video camera
- Passport and travel documents (plane tickets, accommodation details, visas etc.)
- Tablet loaded with the Lonely Planet eBook of you chosen destination
Playsuits and Dresses
Something cute to throw on over your swimsuit
Something casual to throw on in case you decided to drag yourself away from the beach and do a little sightseeing.
The perfect jumpsuit
The kind of jumpsuit that’s perfect for any occasion, day or night.
Ok I know an island getaway is meant to be all about lying on the beach and relaxing but I’m going to Hawaii and it is bursting at the seams with adventure! Waterfalls, rugged cliffs, volcanoes and trails for days. I’m definitely going to need some active wear for everything I have planned. I work at Asics so my choice of active wear is maybe a little bias.
- Crop top
- Closed in shoes
And that’s all I’ve got for now, I need to stop procrastinating and actually do some packing! Here’s a little look at the fantastic time I had in Hawaii last year.
