How I Pack for Short Trips: What's in My Suitcase?

Travelling is one of my absolute favourite things to do and I've finally gotten to the point where I can combine my love for visiting different countries with my job.

If you follow me on Instagram ( then you would know that I was sent to Berlin, Germany recently for a work trip. I was there for a total of 3 days and 2 nights. But you can watch the vlog above.

With every work trip, I always create a what to pack list either digital or by hand. I make sure to create different sections so I don't forget a single thing. Below is the list I created for this pack, and hopefully it will help you create your future ones!

This is also the very first video I filmed using my new camera, the Canon G7X Mark II. I love it! The quality is A+. It's super clear and sharp without even needing to be retouched in post-production. I also am a huge fan of it's automatic exposure option. I have yet to play around with it's manual settings, but when I have a chance, I'm definitely going to read through the entire manual.

Did I forget any essentials on my trip?
