Do you travel with a backpack or a suitcase?
Depends on where and what I’m going to do there. In Europe I travel mostly with a suitcase, North America too. But in South America and Asia it is a backpack.
Looking back at your travels, how do you feel about your original clothing and toiletry selections as opposed to the items you pack now?
I think what I pack has not changed much during the past years. I have always packed very light as I don’t like to carry a lot of stuff. I prefer comfortable clothes and shoes when traveling and not a lot of toiletries.
What items do you pack that make you feel extra “sexy and fun”?
Always miniskirts and dresses that can be used both at the beach and for a night out, also leggings are my favorites.
Did you ever discover the need for any additional gear during one of your trips?
Yes, a Mac probably for longer battery life (I use a laptop) and a Drift camera for my extreme adventures (I am getting one soon).
What are your favorite travel shoes?
The only two pair of shoes I bring on the road are flip-flops and sport shoes.
What changes have you made in your travel beauty routine since you started traveling?
I hardly ever use make-up when I travel. And I don’t carry a comb with me, just use fingers to style my hair. It only takes me 5 minutes to make myself look like a human and go to the street which I find very useful.
Every traveler has a different opinion about travel underwear. How many do you think is a good number and is there room for a sexy pair?
Yes, of course there is always room for sexy underwear but it has to be comfortable too. And I don’t think I have ever had more than 10 pieces of underwear with me, not even for long trips.
You look great in a bathing suit! How many pairs do you think is good to pack for one trip?
It also depends on how long the trip will be. I usually carry only one or two bikinis (even for a 6-month trip), never more. You would really learn a lot from my light packing. And thanks so much for your compliment
Finally, any travel packing tips for new travelers?
Only take with you what you are 100% sure of you will wear and use, something you use in every-day life too. Take clothes that fit with everything so it will make it easy for you to combine them. And trust me, you don’t need a lot of cosmetics, just the main beauty products. Think light. I sometimes take just bio coconut oil with me that I use instead of a face cream, eye cream, hand cream and also body lotion – 4 in 1
