Issie does Amsterdam..
Its that time of year that I wish was everyday for me. I am travelling again. So back in February me and 3 of my friends from uni decided that we needed a break and we decided on Amsterdam. Its cheap, cheerful and not too far and for 4 broke students its perfect. I have been to amsterdam before and i love the city. The museums, architecture and fashion there is simply to die for.
I wanted to share with you guys what i pack for a 3 days trip. I have gotten really good at packing light and i am quite proud of taking the basic minimal but finding different outfits whilst travelling.
What to take in main bag:
- Toiletries as well as shower shoes and towel √
- 4 Basic shirt- Black, white, striped and grey √
- Two bottoms: Harem Jumpsuit + skinny jeans√
- Accessories: Hat, Jewellery and Sunglasses √
- Two pairs of Footwear: Ankle boots and trainer √
- LBD- Must have √√
- Leather Jacket √
- Camera √
Whats in my Handbag:
- Bottle of water √
- Passport √
- Phone √
- Pen and notepad √
- Currency √
- Nuts for snacking √
- Lip balm √
What i carry in my hand bag is very similar to what i would normally carry except i don't take my big purse. I tend to always leave all my cards at home bar one which i carry with my id in a card holder. This is to protect me just in case i get mugged or lose my purse whilst abroad.
So thats what my bags normally looks like when i travel for a short city break. Hope that helps you if you ever have trouble packing and i find that if i do a check list it means that i tend not to forget anything essential and life is simplified.Let me know how you get on and what you normally take with you for a short break!
I am off to Amsterdam now but keep an eye out for when i come back in about 4 days time :).
Talk to y'all soon and Love ya
