    i'm going to make a new list soon: the lambretta travel list. it needs to be extra light and smart!


    1. These are great! I shall come back to this next time I pack my luggages!

      1. thank you polly! are you a to-do list fan, too? ;)

    2. what a perfect list!
      i'm not traveling as much i'd like to lately, but i'll be sure to bookmark it for future trips ♥

      1. thank you toi! i wish i could travel more, too.

    3. i love your illustrations. they give glamorous touch to the simple list. ♥

    4. One day, when you publish a book of your illustrations, I will be the first to buy it <3

      1. dear katie! i really doubt that it could possibly happen, but your words are the kindest ♥ thank you.

    5. I think a book or a zine with your travelling photos and pictures would be a very good idea :)

    6. No 1 Boxes offer a range of removal packages which are made up of all the different sizes of packing boxes you could need to move in a variety of situations.

    7. Pretty good post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading your blog posts. Any way I'll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon. Big thanks for the useful info. things you need when traveling

    8. You get help on showcasing, charging, setting up your site, thus a great deal more. This kind of assistance can make your locally established travel organization business a win substantially speedier than you ever could on the off chance that you went only it.


    thank your for stopping by ♥
    I am curious about your opinions! please, join the conversation.
