(Advertorial) Are you spontaneous? Or do you like to plan everything? When it comes to traveling, there are so many options and decisions to make – and this all has to happen before you can enjoy your vacation. From deciding if you want to use a company like Jettly so you can travel to your destination on a private jet, to the outfits you’re going to wear and the hotel you’re going to stay at, they all have an important part to play during the planning process. With that being said, maybe you appreciate some help from travel companies like bbacksoon. Here are my thoughts on unplanned traveling and a new fashion editorial from a spontaneous trip to Italy.
You may have already noticed, that I’m not a big planner when it comes to traveling. I just go with the flow. Luckily my wife loves to plan, so mostly she’s responsible for all the travel projects I’m on! But now she got some serious competition.
We got invited on a spontaneous trip – destination unknown – by Swiss travel company bbacksoon.
What is bbacksoon?
bbacksoon is an online booking platform, where you’ll be surprised by your own trip! You only have to enter your preferred kind of holiday, but no destination or hotel!
For our trip we selected the “b sunny” package, which means there is some sun & water fun involved. This is what most of us want to see in a vacation. I personally couldn’t think of anything worse than going to a cold country (and deciding what to pack for it). When we selected the “b sunny” package, I think most of my friends were hoping that it would be a fiji vacation, because they’d heard about some of the great things you can do there, and for the best prices. But for a lads holiday, I wanted an action-packed holiday, full of adventure and relaxation. That’s the beauty of this service; it can take you anywhere. If you really want a kick of unexpectedness – you can also choose the “b surprised” package. Of course, you can also add your personal preferences (we chose gourmet vegetarian food and nature) and you can always let them know which countries you don’t want to visit.
This way your travel booking only needs about 5-10 minutes – and that’s it!
Only one day before your flight you will get the message where your trip will go. Best check for yourself:
The guys from Bbacksoon did a really great job – as you can see on the pictures as well (shot in our design hotel)! The Amalfi & Sorrento coast in Italy was on my bucket list for quite a while now and it was really amazing. The Italian food has all kinds of vegetarian gourmet options and we also found some amazing nature spots at the Sorrento coast. The full story about our journey you will be on thetravelblog.at soon.
Spontaneous traveling as a Fashion Victim
For me as fashion enthusiast, there is always some amount of stress involved with packing my luggage. But since I travel a lot I’m already used to packing one night before flight. So it wasn’t any bigger challenge than usually ;) Especially since I knew it was going to be warm, because of the “b sunny” package we chose.
My spontaneous travel packing list
Since I’m becoming more of a travel packing expert, I compiled some of my best travel packing tips for you (that also work on spontaneous trips):
- Choose comfortable but still elegant styles. Like a classic pant with elastic waist band (yes, the food is always better while traveling!)… Black Sneakers like the one I got from Rubirosa will go with anything – from a stroll through the city to the candlelight dinner with your love. And of course don’t forget a bunch of sleek white T-shirts (and roll them up, so they won’t wrinkle as much).
- Black and White. These are the number one colors when it comes to traveling. The best color choice for you (and all the other travelers, who don’t want to have a bunch of weird colors in their pictures). The black and white styles look good with every backdrop and you can easily mix and match your items!
- Always take one elegant outfit with you. You never know – maybe you get invited by some locals to a party or you just need something for a nice dinner. To be honest, normally I’m not a big fan of conventions – but when it comes to elegant clothing for a special occasion, I really think you shouldn’t skip that and show up at a nice dinner with your bermudas and some flip flops.
As mentioned already black and white is always a good decision – in my case it’s black and light grey, which also works ;)
