There's nothing like a song to take you back to your holiday which is why I think a good playlist is essential. Not only do you want it to fuel the fun whilst on holiday but you also want to be able to reminisce about your holiday every time you hear it once you are back.
2. Make space on your phone and camera for lots more memories
Maybe this is an obvious one but some how I always manage to forget and find myself frantically deleting half a dozen photos whilst my friends are posing for a photo.
3. Plan a few things to do whilst away but don't plan too much
You want to have a few plans for whilst your away as you don't want to spend your whole holiday researching what to do. Tripadvisor is amazing for this, you can plan things to see, where to eat and what to do. That said don't plan too much, your holiday is suppose to be some what relaxing and you want to allow for some spontaneity.
4.Buy a new Perfume
This relates back to point 1. Make a new playlist I love putting on my perfume from the summer before and being automatically transported back my holiday which means I like to have a small bottle which I use throughout my holiday and occasionally when I'm back and want to be reminded of summer.
5. Prepare to disconnect and relax
Answer your emails before hand and set up an out of office, let Facebook know you're off on holiday but save all the holiday pictures for when you're back so you get a chance to disconnect from the real world and actually enjoy your holiday!
What are your tips for things you should do before going away? Where are you away to this summer?
