Paris in October

http://goparis.about.com/od/parisbymont1/a/Paris_October.htm

Has tips on what to expect in Paris in October. Handy. I didn’t think it’s gonna be that cool. Perhaps I need to consider bringing warmer coats for everyone


what about clothes.. the kids’ clothes?

The longest trip we’ve ever gone on was 10 days to OZ. We brought about 3-4 days worth of clothes.. DH n I brought 2 pairs of pants each. The items that added much bulk was sweaters and such and I think Afya had about 5 days worth of clothes. All the places we stayed at had washer and dryer. So we don’t have anything to worry about.

This upcoming trip is gonna be well over 10 days long. Our plan is to bring 3-5days worth of clothes. All the places we are staying at isn’t necessarily equipped with washer dryer. However DH did mention we will be alternating between accommodation with washer/dryer and without washer/dryer.

@yumyumx of dailyclickclicks posted something awesome about how she handles her kids’ clothes on her recent trip to Japan. She was inspired by @munirahpunye of tripletsplusone who tweeted about how she packed for her 4 kids for her trip. I think this will be how I would want to do it too.

The general idea is to pack clothes, 1 set for each day. So in my case. Salih’s and Afya’s clothes day 1 in one clear and labeled ziplock bag (toldja in our SNUGGstudio tour video [iklan] haha) Jammies are recycled, so 1 jammy for 2 days perhaps? Then also, you will need to pack according to how you think the day would be like.. and what kind of activity you will be having on that day. This includes things like swimming, going to a park? skiing? hiking? then you will also have a few extra sets of clothes.. for extra.. you know how kids are ‘berlengaih’ and sticky on some days for no reasons? hehehehe

I probably am gonna need to come up with a more specific system sing that we have quite a number of things on our itinerary and different climate thing going on.. but at least now I have a point of reference.

They are going to blog about it soon and I hope to place the link here for our reference.
