TrekAmerica has asked the question, what would I pack for a weekend away? I’ve created my first-ever video to give a snapshot of the key pieces I might take on three very different types of trip… of course the essentials like my camera, smartphone and pyjamas would also be squeezed into my case!
In case you weren’t taking notes, here’s my tips from the video!
First things first – where am I going?
I’d love a beach holiday… so got to pack the bikini! I’d also make sure I had a cute sundress to pop on during the day, and a glam maxi dress for night. Sandals, sunhat and sunblock and I’m just about ready to go!
How about heading somewhere chilly? I love my thermal long johns, they keep me warm without being too bulky. Then I add my favourite hooded coat, boots, and a cute hat to top it off!
Or maybe it’s a city break – so easy on a weekend! I know I’ll want a casual outfit for daytime that means I can explore all day – jeans, a t-shirt, and comfy flats fit the bill. Then a fabulous dress and shoes to dance the night away!
I also need to think about what I’m packing everything in. I love my little blue suitcase… it’s got wheels for racing through airports, and it fits the carry-on measurements for most airlines. But if I’m jumping on trains or heading somewhere with loads of cobblestones, I might take my duffel bag instead – then I can just toss it over my shoulder.
Most importantly, I always pack my sense of adventure – because you never know what’s around the corner! What would you pack?
This post is my entry into Trek America’s awesome #Blog4Trek competition – if I win I’ll be blogging from an incredible two-week trip around America’s West Coast, which would be my first-ever visit to America! Fingers and toes crossed…!
