I love city breaks! I love exploring cities and experiencing new cultures. Today I am going to share with you my must haves for a city break. This is post was prompted by my Boyfriend and I booking a get away to Copenhagen at the end of April – can’t wait!
Passport, money, boarding pass – These first things are the most important!
Comfortable walking shoes – My shoe choice would either be Converse or Vans that have been broken in! I once made the mistake of taking a brand new pair – bad move!
Sunglasses – I have super sensitive eyes so always have my sunglasses with me. Also they are pretty and instantly make an outfit look more stylish.
Scarf/Pashmina – I always take a pashmina wherever I go away, even if it’s to a hot country. They are great to use as a blanket on the plane, around your shoulders on a chilly evening or just to jazz up an outfit. I try to take one that will go with all my outfits.
Travel size toiletries – For years now all liquids in hand luggage have to be under 100ml and fit into a small clear bag. I always make sure I buy travel sizes before going away or small bottles you can decant into as I like to just take hand luggage when going away for a few days – gets you out the airport quicker and starting your holiday – no hanging around a conveyor belt!
First aid kit – You don’t need lots of thinks just some painkillers, plasters and something for an upset stomach.
These are the main things I think about packing first, then I pack more of the boring things like underwear, pants, socks and my actual clothes!
Are you visiting a city or been anywhere recently? What are your essentials?
Lots of Love,
