Packing for Work & Travel: What to think about!

You have found the perfect provider for your work and travel adventure and have completed all the necessary formalities? Then it's time to pack! But what do you actually need in order to be able to work abroad and at the same time spend your free time in a meaningful way?? We have created a clear packing list with sub-items, which will make it easier for you to think of everything important.

1. Your luggage: The backpack!

Experience shows that work and travel trips are most likely to be enhanced by a good backpack. Because oversized suitcases and impractical travel bags are more likely to hinder you on the road. You can strap on the backpack in a jiffy and off you go. You are much more flexible and save your back at the same time. Provided that it is an ideal model for you. First and foremost, the backpack must have a sensible packing system and provide you with the best possible support on the road. This also includes making sure there are no pressure points on your shoulders or elsewhere. Therefore, pay attention mainly to an ergonomic design, padded straps and a good weight distribution. A breathable back is also beneficial so that you don't sweat too much in the heat. Hip and waist belts are a must for longer trips, because they fix the load optimally to the body and thus prevent back problems. The necessary volume depends on several factors such as destination and travel duration. If you are traveling in colder regions, you will need thicker clothing, which automatically means a higher backpack volume. 60 to 85 liters are recommended in many guidebooks for work and travel trips. However, if you are very thrifty and can get by with few utensils, it is quite conceivable that a 40-50 liter touring backpack would be enough for you. On the Internet, we discovered a sensibly designed range of backpacks at Campz, a specialist retailer for adventure products, which you can sort accordingly using categories such as "trekking backpacks". This will make it easier for you to find and select the ideal product.

Best time to visit Nantucket, weather and other travel tips

Nantucket is a popular vacation destination in the summer months. This is the time of year when the weather is ideal for biking, boating and relaxing in the summer. But it is very crowded, traffic is congested and room rates are at their highest. The winter season is quite cold, but the room prices are the lowest and there are several pleasant vacation festivals. However, most businesses close in January and February. The best times to visit Nantucket are during the spring months of March and April and during the fall months of September and October. The crowds and traffic are gone; temperatures are cooler and prices for many things are reasonable. Photo: Heather-Wissman / Fotolia
