This week I'm heading to London to attend Umbraco UK Festival. There is a hackathon on the Thursday and then the main event is on the Friday.
I always have the same dilemma when packing to go to a conference, what do I need to pack.
The essentials are :
That should do me, however, I also like to get a run in while I'm away so I'll also pack
Then on top of that, I also like to take a couple of non-essentials such as
Every time I travel I try and get everything packed a little bit lighter but somehow I always manage to have a bag bulging at the seams!
The one thing I am never sure about is, do I use my laptop to take notes while listening to talks or do I take a pad and pen. Pad and pen is lighter to carry around with me but laptop means I have all my notes typed up.
I like to have everything on my mobile e.g. Travel tickets, bank cards etc. That helps with travelling a bit lighter and as long as my phone is charged then I'm all good.
Some additional things to keep in mind - Thanks to @Umb.FYI for the ideas:
