Summer has finally arrived, and with warm sunny days often come the holidays! Many of us are planning trips and getaways, and to me preparation is half the fun. I like to come up with a list of things to do/see and plan a route to optimize my time, even though I usually end up wandering around without purpose, simply enjoying the moment. Packing is also something I enjoy very much – I make it a personal challenge to bring only the essentials and to travel light. Each trip, I curate and edit the content of my bag with stuff I’ll definitely need and enjoy.

I’ve rounded up a few of my personal favourites below; A notebook to write down ideas (I always get the best ideas for Nordic Design when I’m actually not working…!), sunglasses, a magazine, a sketch book…

What do you always bring along on holidays?
