Musings: To Pack, My Ultimate Packing List

I’m probably the worst packer known to man BUT I’d like to think this list I made is a handy guide when for packing for a summer vacation or city break. Obviously luggage limits exist for a reason but I hope this provides you with a little guidance

The Essentials


  • Flip flops – For the beach! 
  • Sandals – Break them in before because blisters on holiday are HELL! 
  • Plimsoles – Old Converses or trainers should do… 
  • Wedges – Stilettos + sand = NO 
Let me know what you think and if you’d like me to do a Winter holiday version?

  7. […] Our flight was a delightfully early 9.25am departure from Gatwick Airport, so we decided to stay in the Premier Inn North Terminal the night before. It was only £45 split between us so ended up being much cheaper than a cab. Best of all, it meant we’d get a somewhat decent night’s sleep instead of doing the disgusting 3am wake up call we usually do. As much as I love mornings, I do have a limit. […]

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
