The Hassle Free Travel Packing Guide for Men [Guest Post] | CharlotteBehappy





It might be fair to say that most men don’t particularly enjoy the prospect of having to pack. Seemingly choosing to take care of every other important task before finding that somehow, the days have dwindled down into hours and now departure time is alarmingly close. But we do it, begrudgingly throwing a random assortment of things into our suitcase with only the vaguest notion of whether we’ll need them at all. Travelling for business? Shirt and tie. Meeting up with the in-laws? Again, shirt and tie? You get the point..

Throughout my many years of travelling triumphs and disasters I’ve learned that if you do indeed fail to prepare, then you may as well prepare to fail. Save the headache (and quite possibly additional expense) and put in a little time beforehand to ensure that your trip is smooth sailing from here on out.

This easy to follow guide will see you on your way from travel amateur to pro in no time. 



 


Holland Park | CharlotteBehappy






On my blog I love to show free places in London that maybe you would never have visited. Okay, Holland Park is well known to quite a few people but it's not a typical tourist spot.
Holland Park station is further west than Oxford Circus, and it's on the central line. Holland Park is home to a few little spots, like Kyoto Gardens which I've photographed, as well as Dutch gardens and an open opera theatre. The terrain is like that of a forest and most parts so would be muddy on a rainy day.
There's also areas for children to play as well as toilets and a cafe. The park is situated in a very posh area, like that of Notting Hill.
It's a beautiful park that's quite different from other ones in London like Hyde park. Although it's further out, there's a lot more trees providing shades and cover (depending on the weather). I'd definitely recommend a trip out there and click to see more photos.
