Leader of the Pack

For some organising and packing for a holiday are a last-minute chore. For Globe Trotsky, I love the build up and like to be as well prepared as possible; and as agile and nimble tailored for each individual trip.

After all, you might and pair boots for a cross country trip or but just flip flops for a beach holiday. So, planning and preparation are important and often cheaper for the smart traveller.


As a keen photographer and vlogger, my wish list of essentials grows with every holiday season; so, it’s important to make the right luggage choices. I own several different combinations of suitcases, backpacks and rucksacks, so have a look at the Luggage page to see my recommendations.


There is also a dedicated page for packing tips on what to take and practical tips to get it organised before and during your journey.
