Packing Guide » Island Hopping

Tomorrow it’s finally time for another adventure: Island Hopping!
My plan is to fly to Rome and stay there for 2 nights. (believe it or not, I’ve never been to Rome before!)
From there, I will be flying to Mykonos in Greece and then the island hopping will start.

The Trip » Amsterdam-Rome-Mykonos-Naxos-Folegandros-Santorini-Crete-Amsterdam
Length of stay » 16 days
Budget » 1200 euro’s exclusive flights

But first, I need to pack my bag(s)! 
Traveling light is key for this trip as I will be on the move a lot. For this I will be taking my trustworthy backpack.
My backpack has been traveling the world from Australia, Thailand and back to Amsterdam.
This packing guide is focussed on traveling light but bright!

Carry On:
»
My new baby The Olympus OM-D EM 10
» I can’t leave without my old but still amazing Sony Action cam
» It’s summer so my new Ace & Tate sunnies are definitely coming!
» My native wallet (got it as a present from Ubud, Bali) as I might need to carry a lot of cash in Greece due to current events.

Travel light but look good..
I’m known as a hippie and just because you won’t see me walking around with a Chanel handbag, doesn’t mean I don’t like to wear some nice outfits whilst traveling.
I love bright colours, shorts, comfy shoes and fabrics that won’t stick to my sweaty skin!
» Dandy Sneakers from Dante6
» Get tropical in a Mink Pink top bought at We are Labels
» Did I mention I like bright colours? Love this feather necklace from Zara
» As you may have noticed, Sarah and I are big fans of Mimi et Toi, therefore, I will always bring some of her amazing jewellery on my travels.
» New in my backpack is this cute little Foreo Luna Mini Facial cleaning Device which will keep my face blemish free this summer.

Besides these items I will bring a lot of summer dresses, jumpsuits, cropped tops and maxi dresses.
All light fabrics, perfect for hot summer weather and stylish enough to look good enough for a romantic dinner.

To the beach:
I’m a total beach girl. You will find me here a lot but I won’t just lay down on my towel all day. I will swim, jump of rocks, snorkel, explore. For this I need more than a cute bikini! :-)
» I love bright colours, so my Triangl bikini is coming with me
» I can’t take my laptop to the beach so sometimes I write my stories down in my travel journal
» It’s the first time i’m taking these babies on holiday but I have a feeling they won’t leave my sight this summer.. Havaianas 
» Take care of your skin and hair whilst at the beach. I’m using Nivea 30+ (yes, you will still get a tan) and Wella Sun Protection Spray.
» Flash Tattoos. I still love them. I always get them via Child of Wild. The originals all the way from California. :-)

My flight will leave in the morning so I need to continue packing, but if you want to follow my crazy trip, check our Instagram.
See you soon! (from Rome)

Love,

Elke
