|Lake Como, Italy|
Some of you will know that I took a short break to Lake Como last week. I was adamant that I didn't want to pay Flybe any additional fees to transport my luggage - I'm way too frugal for that, and I also wanted to keep my luggage with me in the plane's cabin rather than place it in the hold; the implication of this, however, was I had to take my smallest suitcase and thus be very selective with what I packed; cue the suitcase edit. Two of my most recent purchases did not make the suitcase edit - my Kurt Geiger heels and my Mulberry Lily. These 5-inch heels and tiny bag were just too impractical for a Lake Como vacay; I knew there would be a lot of walking and long days doing what tourists do, so what would be the point in having them unnecessarily occupy space in an already protuberant suitcase.
There is one other thing I try to avoid wearing when I’m abroad, especially if the temperature is tropical, and that’s black clothing. Can you see the theme of this week’s ‘photo shoot’?
What are your holiday packing strategies, if any?
