Off to Portugal I go...


Today I am off to Portugal for my holiday by the sea! I mentioned earlier this week that I would endeavor to do my best with packing light. I must admit, that when initially packing for the trip all of my promises flew out the window and my suitcase was rather stuffed (OK it wasn't 'rather' stuffed... it was very stuffed- I could barely close it!) Then guilt began to kick in and then self loathing... why oh why could I not get this right?

After a conversation with my father- who is very good at packing light (For a six week stay in the South of France, he packed enough clothes for one week and simply had his laundry done while there), I reevaluated my belongings and am proud to say I actually have room in my suitcase! I have packed for one weeks worth of day clothes and four different options for evening wear. That should do me for about three weeks...

Ah, it feels good to travel light... and, of course, it leaves plenty of room for picking up things along the way...

Adeus!

have a great holiday- I do both packing too much and too little- this hols I think I took too little.

Depending on the destination packing light can be very rewarding- because you can buy things while you're away (so this would work in Paris, Italy etc)!
