Must have travel items for your next holiday
I am going away on holidays to Fiji in a couple of weeks time with my hubby to celebrate our 20 year wedding anniversary and I am sooo excited for some child-free, technology-free time away with him. I’ve been travelling around Australia a lot lately and on my way have picked up a few handy tips and items to have with me that make the trip a whole lot easier and enjoyable. I thought I would share these with you to help you be organised for your next holiday and have the best time ever!
HAT – Whether the climate is hot or cold, you will need a hat to keep you safe from the sun or warm and cosy. I am very sun conscious so this straw hat would be perfect!

SUITCASE – This suitcases’ hardshell is sturdy, and secured with TSA certified combination lock and dual zipper opening. I like the hardshell that way I know the contents inside will be protected, plus, it’s also easier to clean.

SCARF OR SHAWL – Whether or not the place you are going is cold, the plane itself can get quite chilly. A scarf or shawl is the perfect lightweight option to help you stay cosy on the plane without taking up too much room in your bag.
SHOES – If you’re doing a lot of walking on your holiday, you will definitely need comfortable shoes. These shoes are so comfortable and versatile, I wear them with just about everything, and they are the only brand of shoes I can walk around in for a long time without my feet hurting.
