10 Pro Packing Tips That Are Pure Genius

Facts we know to be true: Packing (and unpacking) is the only bad thing about traveling. Packing always takes longer than expected. No matter how many check lists you create, or how many days in advance you start packing, you always panic about something you think you forgot. More than likely, you remembered that “something” but forgot another thing you haven’t even thought of yet.
