I am pretty much packed for Cuba and I dont leave for another two and a half months. I get a little ahead of myself when there is a trip on the horizon. So I thought I would make a list if what I am packing pre trip and write again after the trip to say what I over packed or what I felt I was missing.
The trip consists of 2 days in Varadero, 2 days in Vinales and 8 days in Havana.
For Varadero I will need the things for a beach day and a day of touring. Vinales is a day of horseback riding, and a day of touring and possibly swimming. All the days in Havana are spent walking around, touring museums and sightseeing, with evening required for the Tropicana Show.
So I always start out making my packing list by listing what I need for a step in the process or event. I visualize each day and what I could possibly need. Remember when your walking around all day you need to have everything you could need on you.
- Inflight & bus rides
- Beach Days
- Walking Tours
- Horseback Riding
- Nights out
- Anything that will add to trip and make better
Then I create Micro Lists for each of the above mentioned days.
