I’ve seen a few packing videos doing the rounds by other travel bloggers and I’ve really enjoyed watching them. Feeling inspired I’ve decided to give it a go myself and filmed my packing list for Lisbon. We are spending 7 days in Estoril which is around 30 minutes by train from Lisbon, it is a quite beach town around 2km from Cascais. We are renting an apartment with a pool and plan on fully relaxing with many water based activities. There of course will be some days of exploring Lisbon as well as a trip Sintra.
So taking this in to account here is what I’m packing for Lisbon in order of the video.
Go Pro Hero 3 White Edition with waterproof case, buoyancy attachment and cable
Macbook Pro 13″ and charger
Canon 550D, 18mm-50mm lens and charger
Fit Bit Flex and charger
iPhone 5c and charger
Important documents, boarding passes and passport
Handbag – purse/euros, notebook and motion sickness bands
Make Up – Superdry bag, blusher, brush, mascara, kirby grips and lip balm
Toiletries – suncream, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, deodorant and toothpaste (all small sizes for hand luggage regulations)
Hairbrush and make up wipes
Sarong from Thailand
4 x dresses
1 x long jumpsuit
1 x shorts
4 x tops
1 x cardigan
1 x denim jacket
1 x P.Js
1 x black leggings
Case: Hand luggage sized suitcase
Not mentioned but also packed
Lonely Planet Portugal guide book, Magazines, Plasters, Paracetamol, iPod & Headphones.
If this trip was more of a city break then I would probably pack a second pair of shorts and a few more tops instead of four dresses and less beach attire. Otherwise this is a pretty standard list of what I’d pack for a weeks Europe trip in summer.
I also said I would take pictures of what I was packing but I didn’t anticipate packing my case up perfectly the minute I finished the video. Needless to say I haven’t unpacked it since and don’t have any photos.
