It’s the first few days of Spring in the Southern Hemisphere and change is definitely in the air. Tomorrow is the start of a new adventure as Sammy and I pack our bags and move to Switzerland.
Packing always seems exciting a few weeks out from take off. The suitcase is brought out, newly bought summer pieces are carefully folded in. Pack light? Easy. Three weeks later and our little apartment is in a state of complete (organised) chaos.
PACK LIGHT? EASY. THREE WEEKS LATER AND OUR LITTLE APARTMENT IS IN A STATE OF COMPLETE (ORGANISED) CHAOS.
Packing for three months away, across two seasons, is definitely not easy. Delirious from fashion week, I’ve been making impulse packing decisions at midnight piling every pair of jeans and a hundred and one shoes into my suitcase – which now needs two pairs of hands to close. Ok, so maybe I don’t need that ninth pair of pink leopard bikinis.
My go-to travel essentials always include a good book for the beach, my favourite pair of vintage Levi’s, and my passport. What more do you need? Next stop: the Côte d’Azur!
