Holiday Trips – Trip Checklist

"Sunset, casting a unique spell over the beach – now quickly snap a memory photo - but the camera is lying back home on the kitchen table. Each of us has likely been in a similar situation before. Sunscreen or a film can easily be obtained at the holiday destination. However, the forgotten items are not always so easy to organize on-site, or one may have to pay a lot of money for them, which can be frustrating. Our checklist helps you remember everything, so you can approach your holiday preparations with ease."
