Packing For Your Retreat To Tuscany Adventure
Are you ready to put travel back on your calendar?
If you are like me, packing for a big trip can be overwhelming. I often throw WAY too many things into my suitcase, and end up wearing the same few items over and over.
Even when I start the packing process weeks in advance, I still find myself pulling an all-nighter the night before travel, stuffing extra “just in case” pieces into my bags, with angst.
I’ve learned the hard way, that when you are hauling your baggage up steep staircases to get to your cozy rooms, schlepping your bags on and off planes, trains, and various vehicles throughout your adventure, the last thing you want to worry about is throwing your back out from your heavy load!
Does this resonate?
In the process of overpacking, I also forget (or ignore my instincts) to leave room in my suitcase for the extra items I pick up at the open air markets and beautiful boutiques in the Tuscan villages we visit during our week on Retreat. YES…I’m a sucker for all of the beautiful leather bags and shoes, artisan scarves and jewelry, Tuscan-style linens and artwork, and let’s not forget the wine and olive oil that we purchase directly from the families that produce them?
To help you out on your next trip, wherever your adventures take you, our very own Retreat to Tuscany member, Annette Bond, has put together a wonderful short video that will help you build a wardrobe capsule and pack with perfection. Although this video was made for our Retreat members, I think we all could benefit from her packing tricks.
Enjoy her video and learn 10 tips that will help you pack with more ease.
A presto! See you in Toscana!
