An essential packing list for a family holiday abroad
Oh, I often have wished that someone would hand me a really clear packing lists telling me exactly what to pack for a family holiday abroad. I invariably forget something pretty crucial. One year I forgot all my knickers..oops.
No one has given me that list and my family seem to run and hide when its packing time which is, of course, no help at all.
So to help both myself and all of you what I have done is sit calmly, no crazy last minute packing to be done, and I have written that list myself. I want you to have a good look at it and let me know in comments anything you may think I have missed and I will update it as required.
So, here we go…. the ultimate and essential packing list for a family holiday abroad
