To celebrate the release of our gorgeous new Pause Special Edition pieces, we asked one of our favourite travel bloggers K is for Kani to share her travel tips...
Whether you’re writing a personal packing checklist, putting together an itinerary or making sure pre-trip errands are ticked off, planning and organising before you jet off is key to a smooth sailing trip and stress-free travel. Today, I’m sharing with you four handy tips that are super easy to put into action with the help of kikki-K’s stunning new collection ‘Pause Collection’ – the perfect companion to keeping you stylishly organised for your next adventure. I took these on my travels to Denmark and they were perfect for my needs.
I’ve mentioned it countless times on K is for Kani and I’m going to mention it again because travel wallets are one of my favourite things to travel with. When it comes to travel wallets, the bigger they are, the better. I like to be able to fit all my important documents and bits in and that includes my passport, itinerary, boarding pass, currency, bank cards, receipts, a pen, lip balm, phone and more. A zip around design is especially important as I want to make sure it’s secure. That way, I can simply pull my wallet out of my bag and have instant access to everything.
For fail-safe luggage collection, I recommend you make your luggage easy to identify. You can do this by either going for bright, colourful luggage or if you’re looking for an easier option, then unique luggage tags! Look for bold, simple patterns that can be seen from afar. A gold polka dot tag like this one will be sure to make your luggage shine on the conveyor belt.
I love to capture images on the go, save cute entry tickets to attractions and write down a quick recap of each day. Sitting down to do this with a Journal is a great way to wind down after a busy day of exploring and is also a great time to pause and reflect on all the new experiences and adventures you’ve been on.
This is the simplest of things but many people (including myself) often forget to pack a pen. If you’re planning to leave the country, you’ll find a pen handy for filling in arrival/departure forms, customs declarations and making important notes. Don’t forget to pack it in your carry on so you can have it with you at all times.
