Top 10 Travel essentials

1. My Nikon D40x for photos and my Olympus Tough for video + underwater shots 2. A comfortable outfit consisting of black leggings, a loose nautical top, a warm pashmina and my favourite Ray Bans 3. A sturdy Kipling bag - built for life! 4. My crackberry for blogging and reassuring Mum 5. A travel journal 6. A good book - usually swapped with another traveller or bought in a charity shop 7. My ipod Pinkie 8. Never underestimate the power of a loud luggage tag! 9. The good ol' Longchamp bag - full of treasures.

 10. Great travel buddy

I'm teaming up with Friday's Fancies for the first time this week after a friend suggested I give it a go! I was worried I wouldn't be able to participate this week because I signed up rather late but then I saw the theme : 
"Let's fly away!"
Luckily I had this recent post on my travel essentials so figured I wouldn't be cheating too much by using this post, right? Next week I'll be coming up with something new once I've finished tinkering with HTML and other yummy stuff and Skip to Malou* is fully functioning with a fresh, new look! 

Have a great weekend - Especially to those lucky enough to actually fly away for a quick break! :)
