3. For the untidy ones- Eating ice- creams and picking up your favourite chocolate bar along the way sure can make a mess. 1 solution. 0 mess. Use a cereal container as a trash can. Small, free and portable. Perfect!

4. Say cheese!- Sometimes it’s hard to remember all those great memories so make sure to bring a disposable camera that you can develop when you get home just to make sure you can cherish those memories for a lifetime.

5. A fluffy essential- Don’t forget to pack a fluffy blanket and a comfy pillow. Find a beach. Lie on the sand. Watch to sun go down and the stars come up.
