My bag is a 1960s Samsonite case and it's huge- Perfect for hand luggage!
I'm not a light packer when it comes to hand luggage. Instead, I pack for all eventualities and end up with a bag too heavy to carry- 8kg this time round. However, I'm never left needing anything mid-flight, so there's that!
1: Fluffy, George and Bagpuss. I don't trust luggage handlers with my boys!
2: A Codewords book to keep my brain active.
3: Slipper socks so my feet stay cosy.
4: A comb
5: My phone and iPod
6: Deodorant to stay fresh
7: My diary, along with a pen. I've also got some hand sanitiser there.
9: Cotton buds
10: Make up wipes and vaseline
11: Laptop, spare camera batteries, tissues and my Moleskine notebook from Viking Direct.
I also packed my camera but, of course, I needed to use it to take this photo. You probably won't be surprised to hear that I only took out a tiny fraction of these items while on the plane. Still, it's always good to be prepared!
