In fact, for that trip I only took one bag with me as hand luggage - my Grafea camera bag, which carried my camera and I also managed to squash in all of the essentials. I used that for my day-to-day handbag for the trip and also took a smaller one for going out in the evenings when I'd generally need to take less with me.
This August I'm off to Paris for a weekend, so I'm hoping that I won't need to take too much with me. I'm considering packing only hand luggage, which would save the need to check a bag in on the plane. That's got to make travelling a little easier, right? Thankfully, the helpful folks at Purple Parking have created this handy little guide to hand luggage allowances across various airlines.
I'm imagining that Paris in August is going to be hot, so I'd wear this tried and tested outfit to travel, and pop a cardigan into my fairly sizeable handbag in case it got colder on the plane. In my handbag, I'd take the essentials like purse and passport, sunglasses and my Kindle as that's just so much easier to read than taking a few books - better on the weight allowance, too. One of my best tips my mum gave me was to always wear a hat rather than trying to pack it - she has a point; they get ruined in a suitcase.
The other thing which really confuses me is toiletries; what I'm allowed to pack and what I'm not. I tend to take the lazy option land when I get to the airport, I'll buy a lip balm, deodorant and one of those water spritz sprays, for when it gets too hot on the plane.
What do you wear to travel? And do you have any travel tips for Paris in August?
