1. How long is the trip you’re going to take?

Before packing anything you need to know how long you will be gone. Based on the number of days you can pack the required essentials that you will be needing. If you’re going just for a few days, carry only those things which you really need and the appropriate amount.

2. The location where you’re going

What you carry depends upon where you are going! Based on the location, locality, and the weather you can think about what to carry and what not to carry. For instance, the moisturiser you carry will depend upon the weather.
