12 Days in a Suitcase, 3 Trips in 1!


I write to you from my fiancés' parents house in chilly New York. I'm currently in the midst of a 12 day trip to 3 different places, and decided to film a video on what I packed. I love watching people's packing videos; how they organize and choose pieces for where they are going, so I thought I would share mine with you. 

The mission was as follows: 
Attempt to pack in a carry on. 
Pack as minimalisticly as possible while still having everything I need. 
Use my "small" suitcase (my 27in Bric's suitcase). (I also have a 32in Tumi one that is my go-to one... so the 27in was downsizing quite a bit!)

The trip would be as follows: 
1 Travel Day by Plane
1 Day in Manhattan
1 Travel Day by Train
2 Days in Poughkeepsie at Alex's parents house
1 Travel Day by Train
2 Days in Manhattan
1 Travel Day by Plane
2 Days in Barbados
1 Travel Day by Plane

  6. I'm going to Italy for 2 weeks and I'm packing everything in one medium sized suitcase! I considered a carry-on, but realised that was taking it a bit too far haha

  15. So you are not married yet to Alex Goot like Joshleen isn't either, Jenny & Drew, Mindy & Drew, whoever was 5'2" is Mindy, in the size 4 Converses, what about "All of Me" by John Legend or Stephens, is Claire Browning real/for real, she is related to Rupert Grint who is "Laura did the same thing as me!".

  16. I really admire your packing skills. If it's a 12 days trip, I think 1 suitcase will not be enough for me. Students from write cover letter essay for me really finds your packing video inspiring and will try their best to follow it.

  23. Someone is trying to make me post a new blogger post on my online site instead of coming to see me! YOU NEED ME THERE WITH SCOTCH-IRISHES! Do not make (or let) me send a video message on the phone to a celebrity on TV on the phone getting it, about to get a video message from me on theirs! That's so me! That's so mine!
