Whether you’re visiting for a long weekend or a longer trip, with just a few staples, you can look chic and comfortable all at the same time. Autumn can be a confusing time when planning a travel wardrobe. Will it be light sweater weather or knit cap and scarf weather? So what to pack for Amsterdam in the fall?
Spring is one of the best times to visit London. The temperatures are starting to go up but the hordes of summer tourists haven’t descended on the city yet. Whether you’re visiting for a long weekend or a longer trip, with just a few staples, you can look chic and comfortable all at the same time.
After visiting places like Costa Rica and Nicaragua, I thought I had a pretty good idea of what I’d need for a two week trip around the tropical island of Palawan in the Philippines. Now that I’m back in Canada, I wanted to share with you what would make it into my backpack for a return trip to the island nation.
I visited Dubrovnik in September 2012 and, though it’s the only time I’ve been so far, I think it’s the perfect time to visit King’s Landing. The weather is still warm enough for shorts and swimming in the sea but the crowds are thinner. When thinking about what to pack I kept coming back to items with a nautical or Mediterranean vibe. What would you pack?

I must admit that I love my fancy Venus razor with replaceable blade cartridges, but it sucks at travel. The packaging for the blade wasn’t reusable and just sticking the razor into my toiletry kit while on the road was a dangerous, messy option. I may have fist pumped in the aisle at Target when I stumbled onto the Venus Snap.
My teeny entryway closet is overflowing. Despite my various racks, shoes spill out. They take up space in my spare room closet. They lurk under my desk at work. Sometimes they stowaway in my car. There may even be a pair or two hiding in my suitcase. They are one reason why I can’t seem to pack light.
I apologize right now to my male readers. You’re probably going to have little interest in what I’ve got to say. Unless you too have trouble with mangled bras and underwear going astray in your suitcase. In which case, read on and say good-bye to squashed bras.
These days, whether you’re a carry-on only traveller or one who, like me, has a bad habit of packing a suitcase full to bursting, finding products that can do double duty is always great. Today’s find isn’t even one I was out hunting for which made the discovery even better.
