Tomorrow it’s finally time for another adventure: Island Hopping! My plan is to fly to Rome and stay there for 2 nights. (believe it or not, I’ve never been to Rome before!) From there, I will be flying to Mykonos in Greece and then the island hopping will start.
The Trip » Amsterdam-Rome-Mykonos-Naxos-Folegandros-Santorini-Crete-Amsterdam
Length of stay » 16 days
Budget » 1200 euro’s exclusive flights
But first, I need to pack my bag(s)!
Traveling light is key for this trip as I will be on the move a lot. For this I will be taking my trustworthy backpack.
My backpack has been traveling the world from Australia, Thailand and back to Amsterdam.
This packing guide is focussed on traveling light but bright!
» My new baby The Olympus OM-D EM 10
» I can’t leave without my old but still amazing Sony Action cam
» It’s summer so my new Ace & Tate sunnies are definitely coming!
Travel light but look good..
I’m known as a hippie and just because you won’t see me walking around with a Chanel handbag, doesn’t mean I don’t like to wear some nice outfits whilst traveling.
I love bright colours, shorts, comfy shoes and fabrics that won’t stick to my sweaty skin!
» Dandy Sneakers from Dante6
» Get tropical in a Mink Pink top bought at We are Labels
» Did I mention I like bright colours? Love this feather necklace from Zara
» As you may have noticed, Sarah and I are big fans of Mimi et Toi, therefore, I will always bring some of her amazing jewellery on my travels.
» New in my backpack is this cute little Foreo Luna Mini Facial cleaning Device which will keep my face blemish free this summer.
Besides these items I will bring a lot of summer dresses, jumpsuits, cropped tops and maxi dresses.
All light fabrics, perfect for hot summer weather and stylish enough to look good enough for a romantic dinner.
To the beach:
I’m a total beach girl. You will find me here a lot but I won’t just lay down on my towel all day. I will swim, jump of rocks, snorkel, explore. For this I need more than a cute bikini! 🙂
» I love bright colours, so my Triangl bikini is coming with me
» I can’t take my laptop to the beach so sometimes I write my stories down in my travel journal
» It’s the first time i’m taking these babies on holiday but I have a feeling they won’t leave my sight this summer.. Havaianas
» Take care of your skin and hair whilst at the beach. I’m using Nivea 30+ (yes, you will still get a tan) and Wella Sun Protection Spray.
» Flash Tattoos. I still love them. I always get them via Child of Wild. The originals all the way from California. 🙂
My flight will leave in the morning so I need to continue packing, but if you want to follow my crazy trip, check our Instagram.
See you soon! (from Rome)
