Packing is something I enjoy for like the first 5 minutes, after that it becomes extremely frustrating, relentless and boring!!!
Actually, when I am going to somewhere hot packing is a treat! and I can be done quickly. But, when traveling in Europe, in spring ahhhhh Packing is a nightmare! Why? because you have to pack for warm weather 🙂 but you also for rain:( possible/ likely cold weather 😦 : ( boooo and sometimes you just might get a super hot day so you want to pack something for that too…….
I like to travel light! and unless im going away for a 1 month plus I will only pack a carry on ( 10kilos – 50 x40x20)
PACKING FOR STOCKHOLM
Selecting & deciding what to pack for Stockholm, whilst at the same time packing light is proving to be tricky. Sewden, much like England the weather is un predictable! making packing a frustration task!
Last week it was 20 degrees almost every day over there , when I look at the weather for next week it says basically 14-26 degrees and a little rain. Now 14-26 degrees is a massive difference. for 14 degrees I need a lot of winter stuff for 26 degrees shorts and t-shirt will do.
after hours of trying on outfits, selecting items that can be multi-use ( day and evening wear) I have finally packed my bloody bag! and it all seems to fit!
