5 Top Tips to Travel Light

While the big summer holiday might still be months away, the wintery months are a great time of year for long weekend city breaks. Whether you’re hopping on a plane or a train, getting away for a few days in one of Europe’s most lively cities is a great way to escape. But the problem with every city break is no matter how much you try, packing light is always the hardest part! So here are my top tips on how to pack light and get the most out of you luggage space!

1. Buy the Right Travel Case 

Buying the right bag/case to begin with is the most important thing. Most airlines have pretty much the same or similar restrictions when it comes to cabin baggage sizes. Standard is around 55cm x 35cm x 25cm, so when you are buying your case make sure it’s around this size otherwise you won’t be allowed it.

EasyJet has no weight limit – so if you’re flying with them go nuts as long as the case closes #FTW.

It is a challenging for everyone to reflect on 2016 without getting into politics, hatred, fear and a general feeling of negativity. I feel like how Britney felt in 2007.
