It may have been said (by us) that we’re experts when it comes to travelling. Work trips abroad probably sound like the whole reason you got your degree but the reality is noisy hotel rooms and irons that are a certified crime against humanity. Our gift to you? The critical pack list — learnt the hard way.
It's already 11pm, and your taxi — which you've totally booked — is arriving in seven hours. You've rolled (never folded) the essential items but making hotels bearable is all about the home comforts for us.
Armed with nuts, seeds and fruit for snacking purposes (when have you ever had good food on a plane?), pick up that book you haven’t got round to reading yet, or hide your trashy mag in something highbrow. We won't tell.
Opt for classic items that are versatile and can easily be worn together to create different looks. Darker colours are always wise when away from a washing machine or wardrobe full of alternatives.
