Strategic Packing

Packing for any trip longer than a weekend is very time-consuming for me, and I tend to spend the night before a long trip packing rather than sleeping. To help me decide what to pack and how much in order to make traveling simpler, I consulted a lot of sources. I asked some friends of mine who have returned from Granada on what to take and what to leave behind. The internet has plenty of suggestions for making a packing list. I also found IES’s Predeparture Information booklet to be extremely helpful. Planning everything out ahead of time made fitting everything into two suitcases so much easier!
