Ah, summer holidays. Glittering azure seas, untouched golden sands, bronzed bikini bodies, and… airport tantrums. Yes, every year, without fail, we over-pack our suitcases until they're ready to burst at the seams, and have to hand over numerous bottles of lotions and potions to those heartless guys at airport control. (Do they not know how much a bottle of Kérastase conditioner costs?)
This summer, it will be different, though. So much so that we are planning ahead and making a packing list of only the essentials (and yes, perfume is an essential). So long, seam-busting suitcases — we're fully ready to embrace the year of travelling light. Less is more and all. Now, repeat after us.
