Many might stand in front of their pile of clothes, shoes and cosmetic products wondering, how is this all going to fit into my suitcase.
- Preparation is everything!

In addition, its best just to pack the favourite clothes, as the rest usually remain in the suitcase unworn. With kids, its best to kindly explain that not everything can be packed and that they should just take their favourite toy.
