So I am off to Rome tomorrow for the weekend, tackling the train with a 2 year old will be interesting. The amount of luggage attached to a small person is quite remarkable.
- Fold away buggy
- Portable potty
- Air bed
- Trunki’ filled with toys and colouring for entertainment
- Bag filled with 3 outfits for the weekend
- Ipad and headphones
- & said 2 year old!
^ thats without my bag too! Crikey! So, i’m being quite boring and only taking 2 outfits and a small toiletries bag; because lets be honest with a 2 year old there won’t be much time to be GLAM IN ROME!
I thought I would show you some of the essentials in my little backpack though. In 12 days *not that i’m counting, Joe and I come back up to Rome for 3 days, so i’ll be sure to give you a travellers guide then.
So, what is in my bag:
1. Tickets for Italy v France.
You can’t visit Rome during the 6 Nations and not attend a ruby match really. I think it would be criminal to not attend. This will be an experience though as again, i’m doing this with a 2 year old!
2. Fuji film instax mini 8
This is my most favourite accessory at the moment. I had this for christmas and so far i’ve only taken 7 photos. I’m really nervous about waisting film taking photos. I’m so excited to snap away in Rome and Florence and take lots of mini snap shot memories using this camera!
* Do you have a instax mini? do you know of any good tips or things to do?
3. Instax mini film and selfie lens.
… because no trip is successful without extra film and a selfie! Of course.
4 . Aviator Ray Bans.
It’s currently 19 degrees in Naples and getting hotter! Rome will probably be a little bit warmer.
These were a birthday gift from Joe a couple of years ago and they are definitely a holiday MUST HAVE!
5. The Light Between Oceans.
My new favourite read. I finished my book the other day ‘The Two of Us’, it was such a great read and I’ve now started this one. So far so good! and I haven’t seen the film so i’m excited to read on and then watch the film when I finish.
Have you read? or seen the film?
Here’s hoping to a sunny, Italian win filled weekend in Rome.
Have a lovely weekend all!
