haciendo la maleta

Tomorrow I’m off to Lyon, France to visit my friend, Lauriane.  We met last semester when she was in Madrid for the semester on Erasmus (and was actually one of my boyfriend’s roommates).  We used to see each other quite a lot, so I’m so happy to be staying with her this weekend.  I’ll be sure to update you on all of our adventures when I get back to Madrid on Sunday.

I’m a notorious over-packer but never seem to pack things that I’ll actually end up wearing – which leads to shopping and over-weight baggage on the way home.  I’ve seen quite a few packing guides on Pinterest lately and plan on sticking to this one below this time around!  Hopefully I’ll be a pro-packer after taking trips three out of the next four weekends … but more on those as they come along.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your week and have a great weekend!  Enjoy yourselves as I dive head first into the gastronomical capital of France.  Au revoir, amores:)

packing’s on the mind

 

Took my free time today to take care of a few travel worries while I’m unemployed and still in the city.  I went into Vera Bradley at the Prudential Center with the hopes of purchasing some sort of jewelry case after having a minor panic attack this morning.  I absolutely love the jewelry stand Sarah bought me for my birthday, but packing that into a suitcase sounds a little ridiculous.  Plus with all of the budget travel planning I have going on, there is no way I’m checking bags.  But of course, I walked out with this, and a few unplanned purchases (this, this, and this in the versailles pattern)  Matchy matchy with my favorite travel bag ever.

Bags at the Beacon Hotel on a weekend trip last summer.
