Whenever I travel, I always end up missing a dozen of important things in my luggage. There was this one time I brought all my cameras (bloggers need a lot of them!), but to my horror, I realized I forgot to bring their corresponding chargers. There was also another time when I brought both my cameras and chargers, but forgot to transfer all the photos in my SD card to my laptop before leaving, so I’m left with a choice to either not take new photos, or delete the old ones.

I know, tough luck. Ho ho.

So I designed a travel checklist to make sure this doesn’t happen again. Hope this helps all of you who is as forgetful as I am. Happy traveling! x
