Tips on How to Pack for Weekend Trips in New Zealand

It’s nice to have weekend trips once in a while especially if you are already suffocated in your work. Weekend trips can help you relieve your stress. A great place to spend your weekend trips is New Zealand. New Zealand has all the things you are looking for such as great food, relaxing accommodations, best buys, adventures, and fantastic sceneries. And the best way to experience all these fun is to travel via campervan.

However, you need to consider the things you should bring in your weekend trip. We won’t tell you a detailed list on what to pack since everything varies from your point of destination and personal preferences. But so as not to get your campervan cramped with unnecessary things, here are some tips on how to pack for your New Zealand weekend trip.

Prepare the passport, credit cards and medications first.

It is very important not to leave your passport, credit cards and medications. If you have them, you can now go with only your clothing on. In fact, everything else can be bought on your point of destination. Well, we are not saying that you don’t have to bring anything, but passport and credit cards are the most important to prepare before anything else.

Drop the thought of bringing too many clothes.

Since you are only for a weekend trip in New Zealand, you don’t have to bring too many gorgeous clothes. You can pack clothes which are only plain-looking yet comfortable. If you still want to be a die-hard fashionista in your weekend trip, you can bring a few accessories to liven up your look. Instead of bringing too many clothes which consume most of your luggage’s space, it is wiser to bring those tiny accessories of yours.

Wear your heavy clothing.

New Zealand is both a warm and cool country. If you plan to have your weekend trip at the cool side, it is best to wear your heavy clothing like jacket and boots than to include them in your luggage. Wearing your heavy clothing during your travel will lessen the heavy burden of your luggage. And when you go home, wear them again.

Always pack plastic bags.

A plastic bag may be irritating to the eye since it is unfashionable. However, when it comes to uses, there are plenty. With a plastic bag, you can wrap your used clothes. Perhaps, during your weekend trip in New Zealand, you won’t be doing laundry. As long as wrapping is concerned, a plastic bag is always put in good use.

These are only of the few tips we can give you during your weekend trip in New Zealand. If you want to have more sleeping space inside your campervan, considering these tips might be helpful. Have a happy weekend trip!
