What to pack for your Workation?

In recent years, the idea of workation has become increasingly popular as more people opt to merge work and leisure activities during their travels. Companies like Skyscanner and Airbnb have made the most out of it. A workation offers the opportunity to break away from the routine of daily life, explore new surroundings, and concentrate on work without disruptions. According to a survey conducted by Airbnb, 57% of respondents said they would be interested in taking a workation in the future. Nevertheless, packing for a workation can be difficult as it requires you to pack for both work and leisure activities, ensuring that you have all the necessary items.

Remember to pack only what you need and avoid overpacking, as it can make your backpack heavy and cumbersome to carry. Well, that wouldn’t be a problem as CarryPro will help you pack effectively and lightly like a Pro. Let’s put together a packing list for your workation backpack (or more precisely the CarryPro workation backpack)


CarryPro URBX is the best workation companion

1. Laptop/Tablet: Probably the most essential item for your workation. The one-of-a-kind laptop sleeve on CarryPro backpacks can be accessed both from the top and sides. Yes, we respect how important your work is.
2. Headphones: Noise-canceling headphones or earbuds can help you stay focused while working and relax during leisure activities. You can listen to music or podcasts while working or use them to block out noise during your downtime. We would recommend some really good R&B on the go.
3. Notebook and Pen: A notebook and pen can be useful for taking notes, brainstorming ideas, or making to-do lists. Even though we have digital tools available, there is something special about writing on paper.
4. Camera: If you're traveling to a beautiful location, a camera can help you capture and share memories with others. You don't need an expensive camera, your smartphone should suffice. Remember to pack extra memory cards or an external hard drive to back up your photos.
5. Comfortable Shoes: Depending on your destination, you may be doing a lot of walking or hiking. Be sure to pack comfortable shoes for these activities. Choosing appropriate footwear can help double up for work and leisure activities.
6. Light Clothing: Carry some light tees and lowers along with extra innerwear and socks. Even if you're going to a warm destination, it's always a good idea to pack a light jacket or sweater in case the weather changes. A light raincoat will always help. As far as we talk about your backpack, the CarryPro series of backpacks come with attached rain protectors. Temperature can change rapidly, and you don't want to be caught off guard.
7. Sunscreen: If you're planning to spend time outdoors, make sure you pack sunscreen to protect your skin. Pack these in the side pockets of our amazing workation backpack.
8. Water Bottle: Staying hydrated is important, so pack a refillable water bottle that you can use throughout the day in your adjustable bottle pocket in a CarryPro backpack. You can refill it at the hotel or local eateries and save money on buying bottled water.
9. Healthy Snacks: Having healthy snacks can help you avoid those unhealthy temptations along your backpacking trip and keep your energy levels up. Pack a mix of protein bars, nuts, and fruits to snack on between meals. We, at CarryPro, put in an extra little pouch in our backpacks to help you store those healthy calories.

10. Chargers/Cables: A power bank, external hard disc, chargers, and necessary cables are to never be forgotten to keep you always charged up while you work. Try the mesh pockets on CarryPro backpacks especially build for all your cables and chargers.
11. Toiletries: Post-pandemic, it is best to carry your own towel and toiletries like soap, shampoo, toothpaste, etc. Pack in a little towel as well.
12. Medical Needs: Do carry a basic first aid kit along with sanitizers, masks, and disinfectant napkins, and be a Pro-safe traveler.
