When packing for your holiday, it can be easy to pack too much and end up taking more than you need. Not only does this mean carrying around luggage that is heavier than necessary, but it may also cause you issues with luggage restrictions at the airport. Fortunately, there are some steps that you can take to pack light.

Firstly, choose a lightweight suitcase and do not use a case which is larger than necessary. A material case may be better than a solid one, as this will be lighter and stretch to accommodate the contents.

When packing clothes, you will not need to pack a new outfit for each day. If you take a small sachet of washing powder, you can wash clothes if necessary so that you can wear them more than once. You may also be able to buy new clothes fairly cheaply in Majorca, which will give you something extra to wear as well as being a souvenir. The climate in Majorca is mild for most of the year, so you should only need to pack lightweight summer clothes. Items that you may want to pack include casual clothes for the daytime, such as T-shirts and shorts or skirts, swimwear and something dressier for the evening.

Toiletries can take up a lot of room, but you can reduce the amount of space taken up by using travel size items or samples. If you are concerned that you may run out of a particular product, remember that you will have the option of buying more in Majorca. Generic products such as sun lotion should be easy to find at one of the many market stalls or supermarkets.

If you find that you always pack more than you need when going on holiday, taking these few simple steps may help you to reduce the load, leaving more room in your luggage to bring back souvenirs.

A drive to Cap De Formentor is a journey you will remember and is a great way to explore some of the scenic beauty of Majorca.

Choosing a sunny destination for a vacation provides the opportunity to get a sunkissed holiday tan. Unfortunately with great tans comes great responsibility, there is always the danger of getting burned. The following are a few tips that can help.

Sunscreen

Use a good quality sunscreen as this blocks much of the UV rays to avoid sunburn while allowing some tanning action to bronze skin.

Timing

Stick to tanning in the morning before ten o’clock and after four o’clock in the afternoon. The hours between ten and four are when the sun is strongest and sunburn is more likely to occur.

Tolerance

Rather than lying out for hours on your first day on the beach, gradually build up the time you expose your skin to the sun. Try 15-30 minutes at first and add a few minutes each day as you get used to the heat. This allows a tan to build slowly without the risk of getting burned.

Get your car hire sorted before before going off and getting a lovely natural tan.
