Trying to pack for holidays is a complete nightmare. I just spent about £3500 on clothes to go away only to realise that i still had about 50% of the clothes i needed left over from last year i.e pool stuff. I have a 23kilo luggage allowance but cant get my case below 28kilos. I washed a tonne of extra clothes ready and it positively monsooned today still got more washing to do and i leave on saturday! looks like I am going to have to unpack yet again and try to do a more capsular wardrobe . Maybe 8 pairs of shoes and 20 different evening outfits are not such a good idea LOL!
