T Minus 5 days! I was warned by the Cycle World team that they will be taking photos and videos of us when we land (after 9+ hours in Milan to start documenting our journey. Let's just say I'm not the happiest camper when I've been flying that long.... Since then I've been thinking about how I can look my almost best when disembarking.
Thinking about this conjures up an image of a beautiful, fresh Victoria Beckham as she lands at Heathrow airport:
But I know that's impossible. So if I can avoid looking like this (Lily Allen), I think that'll be a happy medium.
Someone asked me the other day if I had started packing for Italy. That got me thinking, I typically don't start packing for these kinds of trips until the day before. How will I know if I have enough room for all my crap?
I think I've settled on trying to get away with just these pieces for 6 days:
So my plan is to pack as efficiently as possible so that I will have a wide variety of lovely outfits that can be combined to work both during the day at EICMA and the evening at dinner with my co guest contributors.
