    I’ve just booked a trip to Barcelona, so this is a very useful post! The portable charger looks amazing, and super useful! I’ve never thought of bring fuzzy socks, I’ll definitely be indulging in a pair next flight.

      Glad you found the post helpful! One more great thing about fuzzy socks – you have an extra pair just in case you run out of regular socks! ;)

  • Sophie

    Love your bag. I really need a portable charger, my phone always dies when I’m stranded or lost haha

      Thank you Sophie! The portable charger is great – I can’t believe I’ve been without one for so long!

    Portable chargers are so handy! We have one with two USB ports, and it’s great because both my husband and I can be charging at the same time. Was a life saver when we were in Japan!

    I don’t pack cleansing wipes, but I think those are a good idea. I should grab a small pack next time I travel :) I also like to pack my iPad mini because it doesn’t take up much space, and I can watch movies or read with it.

    I often bring my DSLR on trips, even though I also have a high end compact. I typically bring 3 lenses with me (prime, zoom, and wide angle). It’s kind of a hassle, but the photos are worth it!

      Oh I didn’t know they had chargers with 2 ports, I just figured my husband and I could share :P I would bring my iPad, except it’s actually quite heavy, and I’m so used to browsing on my phone anyways.
      You take some great photos Cat, so I can see why you bring your DSLR :) I’m actually pretty lazy when it comes to taking pictures, so I’m hoping the Sony camera will change that!

    Great suggestions my skin always gets so dry so the face mist sounds perfect. I always pack comfortable socks and an additional cardigan too Lucy x

      I pack a cardigan as well, but usually I just wear it to save space in my bag! ;)

    So glad I found this blog Jenny! Loved this post. Just curious, where did you buy your camera and what type of lens do you use?

    • Jenny

      Thank you for the comment Keliee, so glad to hear you liked the post! :D I bought my camera from B&H and I just use the default zoom lens that came with the camera. I’ll be doing a post about the camera on my blog soon if you’re interested, so stay tuned!
