Travelling is an activity everyone loves doing during holiday. It has been a tough week, and we deserve to take a break, have a short trip to relieve our stress and share the time with our beloved family and friends.

To ease the hassle of thinking of what to pack, here is a checklist for travellers before departure. I believe this checklist will help everyone to shorten the preparation time and make sure all the neccessities are packed. The full checklist is designed for trips more than 1 month, while those in bold are the suggested checklist for a short getaway.
