The last time I visited Miami was in college, senior year Spring break with some friends from Purdue. We stayed in South beach for a week & I immediately fell in love with the city. Tomorrow morning my family and I are going on a three day cruise to the Bahamas and I couldn’t be more excited and ready for this vacation! We fly into Miami tomorrow afternoon and then leave for the Bahamas on Friday!
Unlike a road trip there are a whole set of different rules when traveling by plane on what you can bring. If you are like me, packing for vacation is a struggle because you usually want to bring your entire closet with you! (Stupid baggage restrictions). I spent last night packing, organizing and figuring out exactly what to pack in my suitcase. Maxi dresses, sundresses and bathing suits were mainly what I am bringing along and of course some accessories, a floppy sun hat, sunglasses, sandals and jewelry!
The most important and helpful tip to squeezing a dresser’s worth of clothes in your suitcase is to roll instead of fold your clothes when packing. Roll up jeans, t shirts, sweatshirts, and pajama top instead of folding them! This is a great way to save space!
