packing for a weekend trip


Going away for only a couple of days can seem more stressful then a long two week trip. You have to plan all the things you want to do and cram them into the days you will be there. The last thing on your mind might be packing your bag, but giving it a little more thought might make your trip a bit more enjoyable.

  1. Carry it- Even if you are not flying only pack a carry on. You do not need a huge bag to lug around to and from the hotels. There will only be a few things you need to take with you that are essential! If you have you IDs, medications and credit cards if you forgot anything else, you should be able to buy them.
  2. packing for a weekend tripPlastic Bag It- plastic bags can be extremely useful when packing for a weekend trip. First they come in handy by allowing you to pack your shampoo and other toiletries without worrying about the mess getting on your clothing. Also, it gives you somewhere to put all your dirty clothes to separate them out.
  3. Accessorize properly- You will have limited space for clothing and extras, so if you wish to accessorize, bring pieces that would work with more than one outfit. This will make it so that you don’t have to pack as much and you can still look your best!
  4. Plane Outfit- Wear the same outfit when you are on the plan going and coming back. This will save room in your suitcase as you won’t need to plan on bringing something comfortable to bring fly home in.
  5. Pack what you want- Not only do you need to pack what you need but you should also pack a few things that you want.  This will make you feel comfortable as it will make you feel at ease while you are away from home. Some examples of this can be a book to read or your favorite pillow to sleep with.

While visiting the Kennbunks, make sure to make a stay with Fontenay Terrace Hotel and enjoy your weekend!
