I do like the idea of travelling light. Will has it down to a fine art - all his business travel is done with no check in luggage. When you're just dropping into a country for one business meeting and don't want to wait at the baggage carousel that makes sense, but not when you're travelling at leisure.
I had a little play around with my clothes in an effort to be as organised as Heather, even if the chic part eludes me. It's funny how ho-hum ones clothes can look when scrutinised through the camera lens.
The thing that always gets me stumped when packing is shoes - you end up with so many pairs. One way around this is to stick to a colour theme (for me it will always be grey). Even with the limited colour palette I still have 5 pairs in contention.
I have my strolling around the grounds of a chateau in the Loire outfit at left. Walking the streets of Paris in the centre outfit (with this coat if it is cool). On the right is my casual dinner in a Montsoreau bistro outfit.
A few more outfits and scarves and wraps have gone into the case but, well, I got bored with the photographing part. It does help with the planning though. I think I am travelling lighter (apart from the two winter coats packed) so thanks for the tip Heather.
