Packing for the Indie Weekend: the Ultimate Tips!

by

Every now and then (more now than then) we are in need of a small break, and a weekend somewhere might be just the right solution to leave it all behind, whether we do it alone, with our friends or loved one.

In plain “hipster mood” we want to go somewhere “off the beaten track,” a place no one has heard about before, to have the real local experience, kind of the way they used to do in the 19th Century with the well-known “Grand Tour.”

We shall not suggest the possible destinations since you have to find the “unknown” ones, but also because finding the right place is part of the journey too!

What we can do is give you some ideas on how to pack for the best Indie Weekend!

FOR HER

It all starts with a checkered shirt, a pair of jeans, a dress that doesn’t get wrinkled and last but not least a pair of adventure socks!

All you need is literature, music, and photography!

_______

FOR HER

A “girl power” book, a small mirrorless camera, a Fuji for your insta-real-photos and the soundtrack of your journey and you are ready to go…well let’s not get too romantic, maybe some vintage card game to play with old or new friends and a canteen for your water (or maybe something a little stronger!)

Packing Indie Weekend

FOR HIM

A book on “How to do something” you’ll probably never do, the right headphones, a vintage-style Fuji and full-accessorized GoPro to capture all your crazy adventures, with also the company of a nice flask 🙂
