Have bags will travel sounds like a mantra for all of us who cringe every time we see a ‘How to Pack Light’ video or article.
Being completely incapable of travelling light myself, the title and colourful cover page of this book got my attention immediately, I couldn’t wait to hear the author reaffirm that I was not alone in this!!
Traits of a so-called over packer
I often find myself looking at other people’s suitcases, wondering how on earth they could have packed anything useful in them because they look so small.
I’ve been asked in the past if I was going away for a week (judging by my suitcase), when in fact I was just going away for a long weekend.
If you are a ‘so called’ over packer, you will certainly take comfort in the authors memoirs and packing challenges.
Honestly, this might have been one of the shortest books I’ve read in a while, with some of the chapters being only two pages long, in fact I was really disappointed when I saw how thin it was, but as they say – size isn’t everything, and it was way better than I expected.
This shopaholic author chats away about her travel traumas, random experiences and funny thoughts; it’s as though she’s sitting with you in your living room having cosy natter.
I found myself nodding along to much of what she shared about her travel experiences, though I think she sounds a lot worse than me when it comes to shopping and excess luggage.
Thankfully I haven’t been ruthlessly interrogated by customs or witnessed my suitcase coming round the baggage carousel broken and wide open “like an open sandwich”, what a nightmare!!
Turning into a contortionist when using plane toilets – oh yes, every time, and also when I’m trying to turn around in the plane aisle without knocking a few people out in the process!
The joys of travel!!!
‘Have Bags, Will Travel’ is a quick, easy and fun read that’s sure to put a smile on your face!
