No matter where we go whether thats a; day trip, holiday, staycation, road trip, anywhere, we have 10 things that we ALWAYS carry with us. Now this isn’t an exhaustive list, it also isn’t the only things we carry (some things are day/holiday dependant), but it is a list of our personal essentials. The reason for this list is a simple ‘what do you not like to leave the house without?’ Feel free to answer that question in the comments. 🙂Continue reading
I’m not going to kid anyone, I started packing about a month ago! Why not? All the clothes I want for Orlando aren’t going to be worn in the Winter in the UK; shorts, t-shirts, sandals etc. But packing over a month in advance does also mean re-packing a few times (maybe 4 or 5 times for me). However it also means you’ll know what things you have forgotten by the third re-pack as well as things you need to go out and buy such as suncream, shaving gel, etc.
You’ll never be finished packing until the morning you leave for the plane but you can be as close as possible!
So we decided a month or so ago that we wanted to buy new suitcases. This is because neither of us has bought a suitcase for years and ours are super heavy compared to the new light weight ones. I personally also wanted ones that matched, because I knew I wanted a cabin case as well as a suitcase and they should be the same design for me. So we had to consider, the sizes, weight, design and where we were getting them from.
