I am quite thankful to be able to travel like twice a year or more to some new and exciting destinations. I am aware of my privilege and I am not taking this for granted. This time we’re having our summer vacation in Portugal(Albufeira in Algarve) since both of us have never been there before.
With just a week before we travel, I have to plan some of the outfits that I’m going to wear during the journey and the duration of our stay. It’s going to be a lot warmer there, so I’m packing a lot of shorts and lighter (in terms of fabric material) t-shirts with a little something for formal dinners and the likes. At least 4 pairs of footwear should have me all covered as well.
I made four sets of outfits as an example:
THE AIRPORT LOOK
THE EXCURSION LOOK
THE NOT-SO-FORMAL DINNER LOOK
THE BEACH OR PICNIC LOOK
I know. Despite all that planning, I’m still going to bring extra clothes as a back-up plan or probably shop there for more. I’m not a light packer. I have this tendency to bring a month’s worth of clothes in a one-week trip. I feel safer with a set of spare clothes, just because.
Anyway, when you travel, do you pack light or heavy?
