How time flies!!
When we started our saving and planning for this holiday we had almost two years to wait out. Now only ten months to go and each month seems to pass faster than the one before. Yesterday we booked our Dubai accommodation at the Park Regis Kris Kin, so we only have Manchester accommodation to sort out and we will wait till the timetable is announced for the Manchester City soccer matches and see if a package is available or if we can buy tickets and accommodation seperately.
We have all of our train tickets and reservations to book but we can’t do those till a lot closer to our departure time.
The other item we have organised are new suitcases which Glenn and I purchased as our xmas gifts to each other. I go to chiro and physio for a neck/shoulder problem so sort their advice and whilst I know some people can travel just with carry on – that is not me and not for almost five weeks in Europe in winter!! We purchased 28 inch Flylite Twister suitcases which are very lightweight and spin on the four wheels. We also have a cabin carry on with wheels for those emergency undies etc in case the bags do not arrive at the same time as us or for that shower and change of underwear at Dubai on the way.
I also liked the outside pockets of the bags to allow for easy access on our train travels. We also each received a hanging toiletries bag for xmas as I find lots of hotel showers do not have space to place the shampoo etc to make life easy.
All packing and clothing tips appreciated.
