  • I'm learning Portuguese at the moment so I'm obsessed.

  • Any who, many, many of you have asked me to do a video about how to pack for long trips.

  • So let's roll up our sleeves and get to it!

  • Here's the deal. Whether you're going to be travelling for 1, 2 or 3 months, what you're gonna take is exactly the same.

  • You plan to take enough to wear for 2 weeks and you do some laundry.

  • That's the key!

  • And it's all going to fit in one 45-pound medium-sized suitcase.

  • Step 1: The Basics

  • Underwear and socks

  • Okay so you could either take 14 pairs of underwear which can take up a lot of space, or enough for one week and just wash them every couple of nights.

  • Next, sleep wear and lounging.

  • Three sets is enough.

  • Just remember, you'll need some lounge wear on to workout gear.

  • Wherever I go, I run so I always bring these.

  • Two outfits that are easy to wash and running shoes.

  • Step 2: The Basics

  • Pick pieces that are versatile.

  • Let's start with pants.

  • 1 pair of jeans

  • 1 other pair of pants

  • 1 pair of darker pants

  • Make sure you can wash all of these yourself.

  • Now, shirts that go with those pants.

  • 4 solid t-shirts

  • 2 patterned

  • 1 dressy

  • 2 button-downs

  • 2 camis

  • I love to take some dresses and skirts.

  • They are so versatile but of course, it depends on weather.

  • So I add a couple of these.

  • If you're into shorts, switch them out.

  • And the good thing, they don't take up lots of space.

  • On to jackets and sweaters

  • 1 solid sweater

  • 1 jacket

  • and my life saver, my scarf, slash sarong, slash skirt, slash sometimes shirt sometimes pillow, sometimes blanketoh, I love you!

  • On to shoes, 3 pairs of shoes

  • Yes! Just three!

  • One for day, one for night/day, and one for lounging around.

  • Guys, even though I'm using women's clothes, it's the same concept for you.

  • If we stick to one palette, colors that match all amongst them, then we'll be able to create a plethora of outfits.

  • Check this out!

  • Let's grab one pair of pants and create bunch of outfits with it.

  • Voila!

  • Final tips, if you're travelling for more than 2 weeks, forget about toiletries.

  • Get them there!

  • Just take enough for the first few nights and that's it!

  • But don't forget your medications.

  • Now, a few extras that I always pack:

  • a quick dry camping towel.

  • Most places have tiny puny towels.

  • A couple of softener sheets which I put in my bag to keep clothes smelling fresh and a bag to put dirty clothes in.

  • and keep odor away from the clean ones.

  • And that is it.

  • Now, are you thinking that this is too little?

  • Well, how many times have you travelled and come back with your suitcase half untouched?

  • Follow these tips and that will not happen again.

  • Come back next Thursday for more travel tips.

  • Let me know what you think below.

  • See you then! Ciao!

  • Psst! Hey! Don't leave yet!
