Do you ever look at your packed suitcase and feel convinced you have forgotten something? My first few minutes of the drive to the airport and then the first hour on the plane is usually thinking about what I may have forgotten! I am off to Dubai tomorrow and so I thought this post is quite timely!
A few years ago a friend emailed me a list that a friend of a friend of a friend (of a friend!) created! This very comprehensive list details every single thing you could ever think of when packing your suitcase! It’s a little bit dated, I’ve added a few things like tablet/kindle… this list still has a walkman written there! It’s good fun to read though!
It has been passed to hundreds of ladies all over the place and now it’s my turn to share with you all. Use it & enjoy- also let me know what I’ve missed!
