I haven't been on a road trip holiday since I was a young child when my parents used to own a big caravan which we travelled across Europe in every single summer holiday. I miss those days! This time round, we are driving to France and spending two nights there. France is one of my favourite places I have ever been to. I have been around 6 times and got the opportunity to visit Paris a few years ago. Did you catch my travel blog post on Paris? Then we move onto Switzerland for three nights there which will see us first time skiing in the only summer ski slope resort. I'm quite worried about this as my balance is all over the place and I can't even ice skate! Then we move onto Germany for two nights which is a place I have wanted to visit for years but not somewhere my family has ever planned of visiting. Finally, we drive up to Italy and stay there for a week. I have been Italy but only for a long weekend for a family wedding so I never really got the chance to explore.
The lovely people at Fitness First kindly sent me over the most ideal backpack for travelling with some Fitness First gym passes which I used to join at my local gym to tone up my lumps and bumps ready for my summer holidays. I'm admittingly usually a fashion over comfort kind of girl but I know this time round that it is incredibly important that I travel not only properly but lightly to avoid strain and back pain. I thought it would be fun to show you what is packed into my travel backpack!
Are you off anywhere this Summer? :)
