I do a lot of trips out to Europe, and like most people, I like traveling light. I hate putting luggage in the hold, but at the same time I don’t want my day bag to be bulging at the seams. I can just about stuff a laptop bag with 3 days worth of clothes plus cables as well as my work stuff and a toilet bag.
But a short while ago I met a man on the train. He had a terrific idea. He made sure all his toiletries were solid (even the toothpaste). This meant 3 things;
- No public emptying of the, often very personal, contents of your bag into a see-through bag at customs
- You can slice your soaps, toothpastes and shave foam to exactly the quantities you need
- You don’t actual
ly need the bulk of a toilet bag at all!
So what would you use instead?
So who was the man on the train? Well, right now I can tell you that, whoever it was, commissioned a number of bespoke maps and he’s become instrumental in plans to launch our international cities AND the first of our recycled fabric SplashMaps.
