Default Packing

I do it every time i travel- leave my packing to the last minute, I just don't seem to be able to find the motivation to do it until a couple of hours before I travel. Same with unpacking- takes me weeks!

So how much in advance do you guys pack- am I the only last minute packer?

Rest assured, you are not alone. After a trip I just take out things when needed from the bags, after some weeks only about one third is left and the bag is easier to unpack. If the trip is long, the night before travelling is there to be used for packing.

Default Re: Packing

I fly Sunday. I keep telling myself that I am going to begin packing but to be honest there's not going to be much I can take home. The weather is awful back in Scotland so have organised friend to meet me at airport with coat and pair of boots. Actually can't wait for a bit of rain and cold weather treatment to get me in the Christmas spirit!

Mrs packed for me.

It will be in the case still until she's back about 6 days after me (no point only doing a little washing )

Default Re: Packing

I can pack within 15 mins (and have done so many a times) - its just a routine. I guess its easier for men rather than women.

The worst thing is packing when returning back to base - especially if you have presents - as they never seem to be enough space or are of the wrong shape or are fragile.

I ended up having to pack in an hour the other night. My dad ended up flying me out to surprise my mum for Christmas. Less than 18 hours after he rang to tell me to look at flights, I was on the plane.

She was. I did it last year under my own steam and she made me promise I'd never do it again.

This time it was my dad's fault. I won't repeat what she said though. Suffice to say, she turned the air blue (in a good way).

I remember when my 2 sisters and I flew to Spain to surprise our mother on her 60th birthday.

We had arranged for her to have dinner in a restaurant with my father and her best friend. We walked into the restaurant and stood behind her and started to sing 'Happy Birthday'..She firstly glanced behind and dismissed us ( if you ever met my mother you would understand the "dismissive glance"thing ) and then she did a double take and started crying..she hadn't seen 1 of her daughters for 8 years. It was so emotional ..I will never forget the look on her face when she saw us.
