You know the score guys.....or girls.
If your anything like me, your better half fills the two suit cases for your trip with all the essentials like..... face cream,hair dryer,bags and bags of makeup a different pair of shoes for all occasions 95 dresses and the odd winter coat in case it get chilly on an evening. But you can take as much as you want so long as it goes in the hand luggage, or your plastic carrier bag. What is a must to go !!!!!
I take my telescopic fishing rod and flip flops. what do you take.

Even when going away for over 3 months, I usually get by with a holdall. I continually wash and wear. Unless you are going to the middle of nowhere, you can buy any extras you need, whether clothes, make up, electrical items, etc.

Wow.. a holdall, guess you are of the fairer sex.
My wife makes sure I can fully fill a carrier bag,,haha.
Only joking, i hate to carry on to the plane, I recon its a real luxury to be hands free going onto the plane but my better half has to make sure she carries a handbag and a holdall of some sort but would you believe (she would kill me if she knew i had said something ) she always takes a pedometer ???? and on some occasions she will take a spare too as she has lost them in the past.

A must to go for me is always a book, music source (mostly phone so i can tune into a radio where ever i am), camera, change of underwear and one change of clothes, this is always carry on as i have had bags lost in the past......and of course money / id etc etc

a lesson I learned is.....don't let the wife put anything in your case as she cant fit it in hers.
She took 2 pairs of my sandals (which I live in) out of my case so she could fit something of hers in my case, then supposedly replaced the sandal in the case.
When I reached my holiday destination guess what.
My wife had only put 2 sandals back in my case.......1 right sandal of both pairs...
