it’s been a while since the last things… post but since my next trip is coming up soon I decided to share some of my tips that will make traveling a lot easier. Though my trip to Thailand is still 3 weeks away I can’t wait to already pack my bags. I love packing and the excitement that comes with it. However it’s not so enjoyable for many others.
Either way I hope you’ll like the following tips – tested and loved by me 🙂
There is nothing more annoying on a vacation than an unorganized toiletry bag. I recently discovered one that just hold everything perfectly – make up, washing things, toothbrush, showering stuff and so much more. If you have tried several wash bags over the years and never were quite pleased with it you will benefit from this the most! I linked two cheap versions below. Personally I prefer the right one but there are so many colorful options as well 🙂
Microfiber Towels are a lifesaver when it comes to packing. They are lightweight, don’t take up much room and are fast drying as well. Below I linked a set of two so you have one for the beach and one for showering – or you use one for hair and one for the body.
Extra Tip: Even when I’m not traveling I use the towel for drying my hair because it’s soft surface prevents damage to your hair that cotton towels usually cause!
Packing Cubes are great if you are going on a backpacking trip or just want some more organization in your suitcase. I will write a separate packing tips post soon, so stay tuned 🙂
These travel brushes by Real Techniques are also amazing for organizing your toiletry bag. They are so small and have great quality at a affordable price!
Did you know that travel sizes or make up samples are getting bad more quickly than the full size product? They are designed to be used within a few weeks or months and therefore don’t are as keepable as regular products. Therefore I prefer to use reusable tubes so that I can have my favorite products on the go and enjoy my favorite products during my vacation. Also it prevents me from going shopping to buy extra travel sizes or keep a stack of samples for traveling which – let’s be honest – nobody enjoys using those tiny rip open packages which always get messy.
This one comes in handy if you’re going on a more adventurous trip like I do. While I like to board a plane with only a middle-sized handbag which keeps just my necessities and isn’t heavy to carry around I also like to go on hikes while I’m on my trip. This backpack folds up to small sized square and is used more often than you would think. It’s also super cheap and therefore a very worthwile purchase!
As much as I loooove love love my Canon DSLR – it’s just not easy to take on trips or let alone fit it into a handbag. I love photography and especially on vacation I want to take amazing pictures. While most of the point and shot cameras have a nice quality as well – mostly they aren’t any great differences to the iPhone camera. So for my next trip I’m thinking about investing in an Olympus Pen model which combines good quality and a handy design. Plus it also takes pics in RAW-format which is so important when it comes to editing them afterwards. What do you think – do you have any experience with a camera like the Olympus Pen yet? I’d love to know!
|My favorite model is the Olympus Pen E-PL 6 which is 377€ on amazon and already comes with the Pancake lens
I’d love to know where you’re next trip is going to take take you and if you found those tips helpful!
Lots of Love
