I started packing for my trip last night. This is good and bad at the same time. Good, because I’m working today and don’t have very much time between getting home and having to be at the airport so at least I’m being organised, but bad because the more time I have to add things to my suitcase, the more I do.
I’ve got five t-shirts already (above), is that excessive for 35 days travel? It’s so hard to say. Five tees and three pairs of pants and one short sleeve shirt and one long sleeve shirt. But that’s not all…
Presenting: A gratuitous ‘iPhone pictures of my suitcase’ post:
As well as my things, I’m also taking a couple of Isaac’s things over for when I see him in New York. As you may know, he went to Paris intending to come back after three weeks (and only packed for that amount of time) but never really did. So he’s lacking a bit in the wardrobe department. Those brand new navy chucks are his. They don’t call me a good friend for nothin’.
One dress (so far), two pairs of shorts, a skirt and two sweaters added to the mix…
That green bag is full of my toiletries. That little one next to it is also. This is actually quite good for me, especially as I am taking toothpaste and shampoo and cleanser and toner and moisturiser and all sorts of other stuff. The bag on the bottom right hand corner is underwear. Yes, it’s all folded, and yes it is in a zip lock bag. Yes, I’m weird.
Socks! and tights! (Also zip locked.)
Two pairs of shoes (and a pair I’m wearing on the plane). Again, zip locked.
What do you reckon? I think I’ve done quite a good job so far. Someone told me today that the roll technique is much better than what I’ve got going on, but I like my zip locked bags and folded piles. But then again, talk to me tonight when I’ve added about two more dresses and at least two more sweaters…
Not long to go now!
