Travel: Winter Sun

Well hello there...

I am off on holiday to Spain on the 14th of January, for a week and I can't bloody wait! 
I work in the hospitality industry, so I can't go on holiday in the summertime, as we are always busy - plus our hotel is closed from January until March.
So, I always go out of season - but it's cheaper than in the summer and at least I can enjoy a week of sun in January, instead of the possible wind/rain/hail/sleet/snow England will be facing!
So, I thought I would put together a little list of my Winter Sun essentials!

Let's get started...
Hand Luggage
Passport, tickets, various travel documents and money - or I won't be going anywhere!
I like to keep all of my travel documents and passports in a plastic folder, so I know where everything is, and I won't lose anything!

Magazines, a good book - for some in-flight and poolside reading

iPhone, to Instagram the classic passport/ticket picture, of course!


Make up: Lip balm with SPF, pressed powder and brush

Compact mirror, for any in-flight touch ups

Notebook and pen, for all those lists!
I always make a list of everything I need to pack in my hand luggage, and suitcase and I tick each item off as I pack it.


Chargers for my phone and camera - I always find it easier to keep them all together in my hand luggage, in case my suitcase happens to get lost

Travel sickness tablets - just in case, I suffer quite badly from motion sickness, so I'm not the best of travellers

In case of emergency: 
Headache tablets, hair bands, cotton buds, travel-size toothbrush
 (Again, in case my luggage gets lost!)

Sucky sweets - for any ear-popping situations
I love sherbet lemons, rhubarb and custards or milk bottles - sweets are my weakness!

Eye mask and ear plugs - for some in flight snoozing!

Healthy snack - plane food is always quite unhealthy and overpriced - I like to bring a Nature Valley or Quinoa bar for quick, easy, on the go snacking

I hope you enjoyed this 'Winter sun essentials' post, Are you going on holiday soon? What are your travel must haves?
