Airports and travelling days are stressful. With airlines charging us per kg if our suitcases are too heavy, we need to really consider things when packing. Firstly check the luggage allowance for your flight. I understand Thomson give the least hand luggage allowance, just 5kg. Many small hand luggage cases weigh almost 3kg. Most airlines allow 20kg for the main suitcase, but how many villas have scales to weigh the case on your return. With this in mind I am going to really TRY to keep to 15kg for my next holiday, so that coming home is more relaxing!
Weigh your packed suitcase on bathroom scales before you leave home and leave some kg’s for the return, presents etc.
Save beauty sachets and take these instead of bottles. Take almost finished toothpaste.
Wear your heaviest clothes and pack socks, books etc in the pocket of the jacket that you will wear onto plane.
If you forget anything (I once left all my freshly laundered cotton blouses at home), Paphos has a number of Charity Shops where you can pick up items at a low price. They are also great for toys too, and you can leave them in the villa for the next children.
