“You’re off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So get on your way!” 
― Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go! 


I've been travelling as long as I can remember - short city trips, weekends away, family holidays, girlfriend trips, work trips and of course our 8 month world trip. It's always been a part of my life, so you might be thinking that I love to pack and know all things packing related... Well truth be told, I really, honestly, whole heartedly do not like to pack my bag or suitcase. Even after all these years it's something I do at the last minute. But, I also know that being organized before a trip is really necessary - simply because you don't want to forget the essentials and it gives you some peace of mind before you leave (you also do not want to miss your flight, leave your passport at home or be without clean underwear, right?)

You can read all about our packing tips over at Laura's blog, Travel with LuLu.

Happy packing and happy travelling!
