Holiday Capsule - A Work In Progress

I am putting together my holiday capsule and here is the story so far.
We are going back to the same campsite we stayed at last year near Barcelona.
Our days are spent walking along the beach, lazing by the pool, long lunches, the odd sight-seeing trip and generally chilling out.
I usually start my day with a run and my running kit is carried in my hand luggage.
The evenings are spent socialising with the children and the friends we have made over the years.
This sometimes includes a beach picnic, games of table tennis and lots of card games.
I know my wardrobe is dress-heavy but separates always seem so fussy and hot.
My holiday will be 10 days as I have to fly home early to start my new job.
Any suggestions - additions or deletions would be must welcome.
If you want to get an idea of how my holidays are usually spent here are the last few - just click on the date.

  1. The simple thought of Barcelona is just wonderful !
    I think your capsule is perfect, I would only add in a hat and maybe a pair of dressy shorts :)
    I hope you have a wonderful time.

  2. What a brilliant wardrobe and how fabulous to stay in Barcelona, one of my most favourite cities in the world. x
    PS can you come and pack my festival bag fo me? I'm useless at packing!

  3. Thanks You Lorena - I had never thought about dressy shorts.
    Vix - Barcelona is brilliant isn't it? Which festival are you going to?

  4. We're off to The Big Chill tomorrow. It's a fab, chilled out (as the name suggests) dance/arts fest in the grounds of Eastnor Castle on the Welsh Borders, can't wait now I've packed. x

  5. Have fun on your holiday...it sounds most relaxing. My vacation will be spent helping my oldest daughter move home, which will call for a wardrobe that is comfortable in the car.
