The weekend city getaway – the perfect refresher in-between long-haul holidays. The short travel times ensure you get the most out of your break so you can soak up the local vibe, take in some culture or just relax in new surroundings. But how to make the most of your trip La Pochette style?
Properly pack your hand-luggage
Hand luggage is a great friend of the mini break, allowing a swift journey through terminals and giving you the freedom to easily hop on public transport between the airport and destination that cumbersome suitcases prevents. The see-through Anywhere Everywhere pouch can hold all your beauty essentials safely alongside your clothes without the danger of spillages, also doubling up as your liquids bag in security.
Planning your capsule wardrobe
Check the weather. Obvious but crucial in packing your capsule wardrobe for all eventualities. Think layers and wear bulkier outerwear on the flight to make more room within your carry-on. While coastal cities tend to offer more moderate weather, plan for wind chill in the evenings with a versatile scarf in your accessories edit.
And whilst we’re on capsule wardrobe, why not use a large Anywhere Everywhere to stow away adapters and cameras on the journey and then repurpose as a clutch during the weekend? Money and valuables can be hidden from view in a matching Circle Purse.
Save time when travelling
Don’t unpack. For such a short stay, remove only toiletries and anything which needs hanging from you bag freeing up your time for more interesting endeavours. Pack the super lightweight Sweat Bag in your luggage and add in your dirty laundry each day to separate it from your clean clothes. Not only will its antibacterial layer keep a check on damp beachwear, but its deodorising properties will ensure your cabin bag is fresh as a daisy so you’re not THAT passenger. The best bit? You can sling it in the washing machine when you get home without even unpacking it.
Keep your belongings dry after the pool
Those precious last moments need not be wasted with a Wet Bag that lets you lounge by the pool or beach soaking up every last second until your flight home. Super functional, it was designed to allow you to stow away even sopping wet kit inside its waterproof chamber and then pack alongside the rest of your belongings with absolutely no leakage. Perfect.
