OK so I've decided to try a backpack as I want to visit destinations closer to home for short hols . Don't want to haul my case on and off unfamiliar public transport, in and out of loos, trying to carry food at airports with case in tow. I find it difficult and a worry.
I can choose a lovely comfortable largish back pack or not quite so comfortable smaller wheeled one. I'm torn as both have benefits. Any thoughts?
Destinations considered Southern Spain, Granada, Barcelona, Italy Amalfi Coast (Pompeii, Herculanium & Capri) Menorca, Majorca maybe Istanbul.all will involve a fair bit of walking. No shopping or nightclubs.
Also I am adept at packing lightish ie decant things into small bottles/use sachets, lightweight clothes - but wonder if there are any hints or tips anyone has?
My concerns are ~ I will be crumpled and creased......should I take my small hairstyler......I live in flipflops & trainers and a pair to go with a dress but should I take sensible sandals?
