Tomorrow I leave for Jamaica. Since I’m leaving so early even the chickens think I’ve lost my mind, that means I have to prepare 100% today. The biggest question to be answered the day before departure: What to Pack?
The temperature is going to be a fantastic 87° so of course I’ll be packing for warm weather. But, exactly what should you bring to the island? I scoured the internet to find out what the experts say….and it was pretty much what you’d imagine.
- Cool, lightweight clothes
- flip-flops or sandals
- batteries for your camera
- Wide brimmed hat, sunglasses, etc.
Buy or borrow a generous length of mosquito netting. The netting should be large enough to form a comfortable canopy over your bed in Jamaica and will guard greatly against repeated bug biting during the night.
The Best Tip Ever: Always pack a little more than you think is required.Another word of wisdom from my mother: “It’s better to have more than you need than need more than you have.”
I know this doesn’t answer the important questions like “Do these shorts make my butt look big?” or ‘Should I spray tan before I go so I don’t blind everyone with my Northeast skin?” – but hopefully it’s a step in the right direction.
