Savannah, Georgia is the epitome of the Low-Country! It's the perfect place to wander down cobble-stone streets and through moss-covered trees, take a romantic ride in a horse drawn carriage, have a picnic in one of the 22 historic town squares, or simply admire the beautiful architecture...I could go on and on!
Savannah is a particularly special place to me...it just so happens to be where Conner and I got engaged and married! We are headed back for a pre-anniversary trip this weekend. The packing and planning have officially commenced, so I thought I would share some of my favorite travel tips and what I plan to take with me!
For starters, layout everything so you can see it all in one place all at one time. This will help you pair down what you're bringing by mixing and matching pieces.
Once you decide what your "must-haves" are, it's time to make sure it'll all fit in the suitcase! I am a huge proponent of the rolling method; It saves space and keeps things from shifting around.
Now for the goodies...
Can I tell you how excited I am to be able to wear all of my bright colors and not be looked at like a fruit cake!
(It seems like everyone in NYC wears dark colors during the winter months except me!)
No matter where you go, make sure you have a variety of outfits: comfy, casual, and something special for date night!Savannah is a walking city, so bringing comfortable shoes is a must! I couldn't be happier that Chuck Taylor's are officially back in style, so I dug out my old ones from high school to bring along. They are the perfect mix between flats and tennis shoes.
Now, this is possibly my all time favorite travel tip... CANDLES! I actually can't take full credit for this one, my best friend Brianne got me hooked on this when we took road trips back in college. We burn candles at home so why not on the road; it helps make a hotel room much more "homey". My favorites are the Voluspa mini tins; make sure you throw
a pack of matches into your checked luggage!
One of the most important things about making travel comfortable and easy is having everything you need at your fingertips. Your carry-on is your new best friend! The perfect way to get a two for one is to bring a medium sized tote bag and put your smaller purse inside. Here is a list of my must-haves:
- A neck pillow (I prefer one with memory foam)
- A good magazine
- A favorite book
- A travel wallet (don't forget your ID - Take it from me; it's not fun!)
- Portable headphones
- Mini hairspray (so you can tame your "plane hair" when you arrive)
- Mini Evian spray (great for rehydrating the skin)
