Travel Bag: Trip of a lifetime

Thursday, October 25, 2012

Lately I have been day dreaming about our plans to go to Australia next year. We are hoping to make the trip out there with my husband's family next November (2013), and plan on making it our 'last big trip before babies'. We have a few stops in mind on the way there and back, and I can't help but think about what I would wear while travelling to some of the most magnificent places in the world. (Sad but true)

So I've put a little packing list together of what I would bring on this trip of a lifetime.

First stop - New Delhi, India

One thing that is not lacking in India is colour! I plan on wearing colourful loose tunics, modest shorts, and long flowing skirts. I always want to be mindful of the culture that I am jumping into and would not want to wear something that may be offensive to their religion or cultural standards. One thing to bring or purchase would be a shawl to wear over your head if you plan on visiting religious sanctuaries. We will be doing lots of walking, so a good pair of shoes if also very important.

Main Stay - Victoria & Brisbane, Australia

When staying in Australia, our main focus is family time. We are attending a wedding for my husband's cousin and visiting with family from around the world. We'll be taking day trips, attending wedding functions, and spending a few nights on the town. I want to take versatile clothing that can bring be through from day - night and also lots of layers since it may be temperamental weather at that time of year.

Last Stop - (undecided) Italy

One of the places that is at the top of my list to see is Italy. We haven't quite decided if we will be able to make a stop on the way home yet, but I am really hoping we can make it to Italy. I mean wouldn't that just be the cherry on top of an already amazing trip?! I dream of walking the streets with fancy Italian women in black heels and the perfect trench coat. Sitting back and enjoying the scenery of Venice on a gondola with a singing man in a tophat! A girl can dream right?

  3. Sounds like an incredible journey you two will be making! Visiting some places that I would love to see (India and Australia) - and if you go to Italy (I've been twice, once to Pisa and then again later to Milan, Venice, Verona and Florence) and it was gloriously beautiful - and the food is the best!

  5. Oh gosh, I can NOT tell you how jealous I am that you get to travel the world. It will be so much fun, and an opportunity of a lifetime. Can't wait to see all the pictures, and what you decide to wear. Love that last shot for Australia. Beautiful layering!
