On a long-haul flight, hand luggage is really important. Before I flew, I did a lot of research on what people take in their hand luggage, because I’d never been on such a long flight before, and I wanted to be comfortable and avoid being grumpy about needing something and not having it (mainly food!)
I also asked on Twitter for advice, so thank you to the lovely people who replied. I have to say, I think my bag was fairly comprehensive for everything I needed on the flight. So, I thought I’d share with you what I packed:
You may not know, because I’ve been incredibly cool about the fact that it’s been MY BIRTHDAY recently. With each passing year in your 20’s, you have some kind of crazy cocktail of emotions about getting older. I am so weird about my birthday. Like, on the one hand I really hate to be centre of attention. But, on the other hand, I like to celebrate it and feel special and be a little self-indulgent. Just the one day a year, I swear.
B and I are fans of the UK city break, so he decided to surprise me with a night in Chester for my birthday. Chester is one of my favourite cities to visit, and I’m about to explain why. Fair warning, most of this is about stuff I ate that day. What’s new, really?
You may have seen my post about our city break to Milan and Lake Como. If not, you can read it here. In the same trip, we also went over to Venice, and spent 4 days there, too.
