How often do you travel?
Currently, very often, as it happens. Basically, Aline and I plan to visit a destination outside of Europe once a year, as part of our annual holiday. Added to this is the fact that I’m able to travel a lot at present thanks to the blogging. I’m more than happy about this and very grateful. This year, we already visited Bali at the turn of the year and Cuba in March. We’ve already planned the following for the coming months: Venice and Paris in April, London und Malaga in May, possibly London again in June and, in September, we’ve got New York and L.A. to come. I am certain that there’ll be more trips to add to these.
Suitcase or travel bag?
A suitcase, no contest, and invariably hand luggage as well! Firstly, hand luggage only is regularly booked by the companies for the short trips to Paris or London. Secondly, I need a great deal of stowage space to fit everything in. I’m a totally methodical and organized person, with the result that I arrange everything in an ordered way in my case so as to produce as few creases as possible. That’s why only in an emergency is it a travel bag.
Do you have a trick for carrying shirts smoothly in a suitcase to your destination?
I fold my shirts up and place them between the towels (if I take any with me) or between other items, so that the shirts are well cushioned. Usually, I iron my shirts again in the hotel or have them ironed. Sadly, they hardly ever reach their destination entirely wrinkle-free.
