Holiday time again! Gwyliau, here we come!

To get us all in the mood for the holiday season I thought I’d share my (extended) packing list with you. Do you use a packing list for your holidays at all? I’m very good at forgetting the barest of necessities, which is absolutely no good when taking a family of five on a trip abroad, so I certainly do.

Build your own Holiday Packing List yn Gymraeg

Let’s make this an exercise, shall we? Compiling word collections and writing vocabulary lists are great for learning languages. And all the better when they serve a practical, down-to-earth purpose!

A packing list, quite naturally, contains many items you surround yourself with in everyday life: Clothes, toiletries, electronical devices… You name it! So a packing list is very likely to contain plenty of immediately useful bits and pieces of vocabulary. Splendid!

BUT (there always is a BUT).

The BUT here is that the best lists are, of course, the lists you compile YOURSELF. So don’t just copy mine but use it as a basis to write your own. Besides you will probably want to take a whole lot of different things, depending on the “where”, “when”, and “who with” of your holidays.

So here’s my Welsh – English – German Holiday Packing List Blueprint for you:
