Kevin and I are heading off to North Queensland this morning. We thought we had bought cheap “cabin luggage only” tickets for one sector so we organised all our packing to fit in little bags and under the 7kg weight limit. When we checked in online last night we realised that we do in fact have the normal checked baggage allowance. Kevin has repacked into a larger suitcase taking some extra non-essential items but I decided I couldn’t be bothered. So I’m off for two weeks at Port Douglas with a 105cm bag.
Since our UK trip last year I have become a convert of the small packing cube things. Even on small trips I have been using them. It makes it easier to pack and easier to find things while I’m away.
This time, I have a bigger one for my exercise gear than I do for normal clothes.
We have flights, accommodation and hire car booked along with a one day tour to the Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation. Other than that, we have a few ideas of things we’d like to do and we’ll see about booking them in once we arrive. This is a “no stress” holiday.
