Stay Organised & Find Your Stuff Easily

Nothing sucks greater than getting out of bed in the center of the night time to use the bathroom, and getting just to walk towards the shared bathroom inside your bare ft after realizing all of your footwear are hidden deep inside your locker, and all sorts of your dorm-mates are sleeping.

That became of me this past year, after i remained inside a dorm room in Barcelona for any previous night flying to Italia to satisfy some buddies. Also it got me thinking a great deal about how exactly I’m able to pack and organize my things to possess a better hostel experience later on.

Choose a Front-Access Backpack With Exterior Pocket Access — I’m presently on my small third bit of luggage, going completely to that first big multi-country trip in 2000.

My first bag would be a front-loading 55+15L travel backpack, my second bag would be a 40L top-loading backpack, and my current bag is really a convertible (wheelie bag + backpack combo) 60 + 15L front-loading bag.

I’ll just tell, I Really Like my current convertible, and most likely won’t ever return to a pure backpack or perhaps a pure rollie bag. In Europe, especially, a lot of structures are with no elevator, and that i love having the ability to undo straps, hoist it onto my back, and bear up the steps without an excessive amount of effort.

Beyond that, I believe a front-loading bag is fantastic for remaining in hostels, because it enables quick access to any or all your things, without getting to drag everything out.

I absolutely hated my top-loading bag, and hated it doubly then when we were staying in hostels.

Stay Organized with Packing Cubes — Additionally to seeing what’s within your bag, it’s useful to remain organized with packing cubes. I’m a large fan from the moving packing technique, meaning I am not always capable of seeing what something is, without pulling it of my bag and unrolling it.

By utilizing packing cubes, and keeping like products together inside a cube (i.e., tops in a single, bottoms in another), you can just pull the cube from your bag and unzip it, obtaining a better take a look at that which you have.

Bald eagle Creek comes highly suggested!

My final organization tip would be to stuff a multiple-use grocery bag that packs up tight (and ideally stuffs into its very own pouch or pocket, K-Way style) to your luggage. We use ours ALL Time for: transporting leftover food around whenever we move metropolitan areas transporting laundry towards the laundry mat separating dirty clothes from clean clothes so it’s not necessary to make use of the “sniff” test packing random items that doesn’t easily fit in our luggage (when we’re making short moves), and purchasing groceries at a shop. So. Super. Helpful.

Vintage Short Hair


AimlessWhispers: Wow it take me about 20 minutes to straighten and style my short bob…and you did this beautiful extravagant hairstyle in just 14 min?! I wish I had your talent!

Soul de Tempête: +BigVBeauty\nShe still did a pretty elaborate style in a very short time, edited or no, the forehead roll was done in real time and didn't even take 5 full minutes-pretty incredible!!

Soul de Tempête: Practice makes perfect; choose a look you want and attempt it every day until you achieve the results you desire; you have the talent to do it! I didn't think I did either, until i did a better job on my wedding hair than the trial stylists did!

16 Mega Pickles: I can imagine my hair would end up looking like a hot Cthulhu mess LOL

Emelie Ekvall: The roll looks like a rose 😀 Beautiful!

Soul de Tempête: There are hundreds of excellent 'rose' tutorials on here, from forehead ones to back/crown of the head ones; especially in wedding styles. They are very similar in technique (some of them) I'm not talking about the braided bun roses, either, although those can be easier and faster. You should check around, they aren't nearly as difficult as they look! Practice makes perfect!!

Wendy Whitelaw: Little darling, There are lots of Rockabilly and victory roll you tube videos and they ALL sucked, until yours. Firstly, your well spoken and VERY pretty, and bothered to makeup and dress for the look-50s style.. Even your room looks cool, unlike everyone elses closets in their white trash bedrooms and bathrooms, with many open closets with messy clothes improperly hung on their wire hangers. your room, very ambient and no giggling was awesome too. I still can't believe that not one of the other victory rolls tutorials even teased their hair first, leaving the rolls hardly showing, and if they followed these tutorials without the teasing and spray their rolls will be flat in 1 minutes. By the way Ive been doing makeup and hair really successfully for the fashion magazines collections and film for over 30 years, my 1st Vogue cover was when I was 17 years old, so I know of what I speak.\nkeep up the good work dolly!\nx,\nWendy

Soul de Tempête: >^..^< Miao!

Soul de Tempête: I will say this: I tried this style and it worked! whatever other people are complaining about (messy clothes closet, or whatever) did NOT hinder me following the very clear and concise video to finish this style with my own unique twist! Love it!

Hailey McDaniel: where did you get your bow for your hair ??!!
