  • Yes. Real Simple has them on-line and there are some other places too. I can't remember the websites of the top of my head but if you google something like 'travel checklist' or packing travel checklist it should get you to some sites.

  • We always make a list. There isn't one standard list we follow, we just make one for that trip and add to it as necessary.
