GIRL’S CORNER; Thoughts on travel packing.
Is anyone spending their holidays on the road with perfect luggage? Well, here is sharing the drama of packing! As you may know, when prepping the suitcase for a road trip, there is one rule: less is more. Small spaces force us to reduce to a minimum to make the perfect luggage container. So much sacrifice (taming the inner monster that takes possession of all women at the crucial moment, the one that makes us pour our closet in a small suitcase because “You never know, I might need that, let’s say I go dating /meet someone …” is a difficult task) will be rewarded with infinite spaces, silence, interesting readings and amazing views across the country, away from the crowds of Summer.
Following are a few points to keep in mind while packing (If you usually pack at 2 am the day before departure, then these tips may be worthy of review …).
1-A soft bag is the perfect luggage, there is little room in a car for rigid suitcases. Remember, space is limited.
2-Swimsuit, bikini or one piece. You will have access to swimming pools most days.
3-Heels for evening, low heels and a pair of flat sandals. They will be your best friends, along with skirt, belts and tops to mix and match.
4-Deniums and shorts, comfortable in car or enjoying country stops, will allow you to move around in and protect you from the sun and wind.
5- A bunch of nice dresses to wear in the evening for dinners in town.
6-No need for jewellery and accessories, just stick to the basics: one pair of your favourite piece of jewellery, one large bag to use for sightseeing and a small clutch for the evening.
7-All bathrobe and a set of towels are provided at each hotel during the trip, laundry can be carried out by hotel or local laundry outlet if preferred.
8-Essential beauty products, include your favourite shampoo and conditioner, shower gel, sunscreen, after sun lotion. Please note that most hotels provide a high class range of products in house for your use, washing your hair and using hair dryers is a function open to you daily.
9-A pair of sunglasses will be enough for the whole holiday.
10-A panama hat to shade you from the sun.
11-A windproof jacket.
12-A sweatshirt and a scarf for the cooler evenings spent on the road or patio.
13-If you are a reader then remember your favourite book to cap off your perfect luggage!
