Simple Packing?

Today was a good day! I got time to hands on dig into the different things I would like to bring with me on our next trip.

This is the proof – I start early sorting out which clothes I bring with me on our 9 weeks of journey, this time to Scandinavia. Since I am going to four-five-perhaps six different destinations, I already now sort everything into different piles. Those things I will definitely need to bring with me to my sister and the celebration of Midsummer goes in one bag, and the things I need when we go to the summer house in Finland – mostly toys for rainy days – goes in another bag. To mention two of those destinations…

Since I will be a single parent for some weeks now, I know I need to plan ahead. I will be staying at other people’s houses, which means I will have limited time to plan and pack while at the locations (Someone has to watch those kids so they do not brake all the porcelain).

I have a base camp, to where I will bring all the six different bags. But the goal is to limit myself and the kids to two “active” bags while visiting around Scandinavia. Will I make it? I guess it is in the future to tell.


About Caroline

I am a proud mother of two toddlers, living in Texas. I have been a globetrotter since childhood, and decided to continue with that despite all the hassle that comes with traveling with small kids. My opinion is that every kid benefits from exploring new cultures and seeing different places. So far, my passport has stamps from India, Russia, Ukraine, Israel, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, England, Scotland, Wales, Germany, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, France and Greece. When flying is not an option, me and my family take the car out for a road trip, exploring the adventurous USA.
