So I’ve been doing laundry and ironing and just generally getting ready to go out of town for a week. I’ve never had over-packing issues, but I also wouldn’t consider myself to be a “light” packer, by any means! I’m a 1-checked-bag type of girl.
The friend that I’m traveling to Montreal with is a carry-on-only type of girl. So I decided to try to follow suit. At least it will ensure proper suitcase delivery, right? (I have the worse luck with airlines loosing my bags!) And guess what – Success!!!
I fit 3 dress suit outfits + 2 regular outfits, and makeup, toiletries (all travel-size), etc. I managed by making sure everything is in a black color scheme, so I only need 1 heavy black coat, 1 pair of black boots, 1 pair of black heels, 1 black scarf, etc..
I also have my backpack where I plan to stash some reading materials, ipod, phone, and some snackies (I always take snacks with me when I go out of town!)
Look – it closes…..kinda
Wakeup call is at 3:30am. Yes. 3:30am. We live in Tucson, but the flight was $200 cheaper from the Phoenix airport. Well, Phoenix is an hour and a half away…and our flight is early!!!
I plan to spend a substantial amount of air-time sleeping!
Can you sleep on airplanes?
Do you take snacks when you travel?
