THE FINE ART OF PACKING
There are various kinds of trips and it's only logical that the interior of your suitcase has to adjust both to the climate of your destination and the purpose of the trip - what might seem absolutely necessary on a business trip, probably won't cut it on leisure. You just have to learn the way to do it. I am here to offer you my packing tips, share my secrets and make your travel life a whole lot easier I hope.
So, read on to find out my most useful tips by category.
#1: THE SUITCASE
#2: THE CLOTHES
Say "no" to folding and "yes" to rolling. Instead of folding your clothes, you'll simply roll them to both avoid getting them crinkled and damaging sensitive textiles. You'll be surprised with how much space you'll end up saving - valuable space to be honest. Try putting small, scented pouches between spaces or at a corner of the suitcase to keep your clothes refreshed and smelling great. It's a trick I always do.
#3: THE SHOES
Make sure you keep a few dustbags to store your shoes inside your suitcase - they're great for packing your shoes, as you can wash them afterwards and keep your suitcase looking clean and neat all the time. After all, your suitcase represents you - you wouldn't leave your drawers dirty, would you? For that reason, I almost never use plastic bags to pack my shoes.
#4: THE COSMETICS
#5: THE EMPTY SPACES
Fill all the empty spaces inside your suitcase with miscellaneous accessories that don't crease. You could use your shoes, scarves, beanies, sunglasses cases or any chargers (stored inside cases). Never close your suitcase before filling any empty space between your rolled clothes - it's so effective you'll get to finally carry many extras with you, like that sweater for the chilly nights in London.
#6: YOUR HANBAG
#7: ΤHE TRAVEL GADGETS
There are a few other little things that will definitely make your trip more cozy, comfy, quiet and overall pleasant. A sleeping mask or a good book are all-time classics. I keep everything organised in separate cases - my iPad, passport and cards.
#8: THINK SMART
