What to pack for a trip to Ghana was an ongoing and overwhelming thought for me. Even though we got a list of things to bring from Hayet I still felt super unprepared. So I made a list of things I packed (and the things I forgot) because if you should find yourself in Ghana I want you to be more ready than I was!
Here’s where it’s ok to stunt with your fancy luggage. I’d recommend getting luggage that’s easily identifiable (read: ditch the black). For this trip, I sacrificed a few items because I over packed. I recommend bringing a large suitcase with all your wearables, a duffle bag with wheels with your toiletries, electronics and such and then bring your carry on near empty for all the goodies you’re bringing back for the fam. The airports internationally are pretty strict about their weight requirements so it’s a great idea to have a weight scale (like this one from Amazon) so that you know what you’re working with.<
