Happy Holiday Checklist

Woohoo holiday season is upon us again. Have you been away yet or do you have a get-away planned soon?

With three children all under six, we have decided to eschew the foreign holiday in favour of a good old British seaside holiday (with grandparents in tow for help!)

Although I am slightly envious of my friends jetting off to sunny shores, I am sure we will have an equally good time….as long as this glorious weather continues.

have packed a bumper bag of rainy day activities, just in case.

Packing, that’s the most
stressful bit isn’t it?

Apart from travelling with toddlers. I have found my carefully laminated list from last year in the hope that packing will be a much easier affair.

Here is a handy holiday checklist to keep in your suitcase. It may just help to avoid forgetting that invaluable item!

I must admit that I always have a ready-packed toilet bag with lots of miniatures procured from beauty counters or give-aways. It means that I have everything in miniature ready to grab whenever I need to be away for a night or more.

Your Holiday Checklist

We have just enjoyed a wonderful family holiday in Mallorca, which really helped me to relax and forget the stresses and strains of everyday life.

However, I felt more stressed than ever in the week before I went, trying to remember everything I had to do and pack.

Packing for a family holiday

This year, I have vowed to make a holiday packing list, laminate it and keep it in the suitcase so I don’t have to try and think about it each and every year.

To save you the job, here is the Dairy Diary’s list on what to remember and what to take:

Before you go

  • Check all passports, EHIC cards are up to date and you have any necessary visas
  • Book pets into kennels
  • Order currency
  • Book airport transfer or parking
  • Research your destination; where to visit, what to prepare for; what to avoid
  • Take out travel insurance (and leave a copy with a friend or relative)
  • Book your transfers/car hire at your destination
