Welcome in August. A month which is (usually) filled with lots and lots of sunshine. Nice weather outside so we can pack our bags and go on a trip. A city trip. To a new city, a known city, a loved city, to Antwerp? Yes! To Antwerp! Welcome to this months’ blog post.
This month, we are going to talk about the most essential travel items, which are handy to carry along with your trip to Antwerp.
Someone once told me, “Carry everything with you, so that when you arrive, your things arrive too”. This way, you carry along a piece of your home with you, while visiting Antwerp. But don’t carry along too much, it’s just a city trip ;-)
It’s time to get going. To fill your suitcase/backpack/carry-on/someone-elses-bag-cause-you’re-too-lazy-to-drag-your-own-stuff! The most important thing on a city trip is: Pack light. If you stay somewhere for a couple of days, you don’t need to drag your whole wardrobe with you, cause you know – we do have wardrobes in our rooms, you only need to fill them with your belongings. You see, we just saved you from dragging your heavyweight wardrobe with you.
One important and returning question for (almost) everyone: “What to wear?!”, let’s answer that question!
(Almost) everyone asks themselves this question before starting their city trip. Is it going to be warm, or cold? Chilly nights or is there rain forecasted? Time to unlock your phone, open the Weather-app and (carefully, slowly, gentle) check the forecast for the following days. Based on these details, you’re all set to pack! But not only clothes are necessary to carry along with you. No! There’s more…
Yup! For eight months now, we’re living in 2017. This means, modern technology, which means chargers and adapters! Cameras, iPhones, iPads, your Apple Watch, your laptop and your other electronical devices needs to be charged. Do not forget to bring your chargers and adapters. In case you live abroad, make sure your adapter fits our sockets, or bring a universal travel adapter with you, just to be on the safe side.
Don’t forget you’re about to get away from home, pack your basic toiletries. Deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, your favourite fragrance, razor, shaving foam, comb, sanitary towels… Whatever is basic for you to carry along with you, carry it along with you! Point, aim, and throw! Right into your suitcase. SCORE! In case headaches pop-up frequently with you, or you’re just super well-prepared, painkillers come in handy. The hotel is not allowed to have any painkillers or other kinds of medicines, pharmacies however are not far from us, during business hours.
Imagine, you’re just a couple of minutes away from Antwerp, and you check… your… bag… Damn it! While you were on the phone with your mom, you forgot to pack your toothbrush and toothpaste. No worries, we’ve got your covered. Leopold Hotel Antwerp has a 24 hour shop available with most of the basics. Toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, sanitary towels, tampons, razors, umbrellas… So you can relax again :-)
