One of the things I am a master at is packing. Last year I went to Nashville with just my bookbag for a four day weekend!  I am very good at packing light. Actually, my husband and I are taking ONE luggage on the trip! Just one. 

Because I love you, here is a short list I work from to make sure I have what I need. Of course, it changes dependent on the length of the trip. And activities but its a good start. 

- DO NOT FORGET to pack: Passport and other ID, Emergency Contact Information, Insurance Cards, and any medication and/or prescriptions you are taking.

- Pack your own favorite snacks for plane ride, beach time or even just to keep yourself sane. All inclusive and cruises can get dangerous when it comes to food so if you have goals, pack some stuff. ESPECIALLY for the flight. On Jetblue all you get are chips (some airlines give you nothing) and the airport food is either disgusting or expensive. 

- Wear comfortable clothes to the airport to speed up the check in process (make sure you pick up all items from belt).

- Beware of things that may set off the metal detector: Keys, loose change, mobile phones, pagers, and personal data assistants (PDAs), Heavy jewelry (including pins, necklaces, bracelets, rings, watches, earrings, body piercings, cuff links, lanyards or bolo ties), Clothing with metal buttons, snaps or studs, Metal hair barrettes or other hair decoration, belt buckles, under-wire bras.

Travel Bag (carry on): When packing your travel bag, pack it like it is the only bag you will have. In my case, it sometimes is the only bag I have. You never know if your baggage will get lost or delayed. Be prepared in the event that happens.
