We all get a little over zealous when packing to go away anywhere, we tend to have a ton of ‘just in cases’! I’m no exception!

The following is a list of things that I wish I’d taken……………..

  • Small head torch
  • Shower bag (waterproof), although, I could use a carrier bag
  • Shower gel
  • Dressing gown or something to walk back from the shower block in
  • Hat
  • Good quality sunscreen
  • Sunscreen for my lips
  • Day face cream (I forgot it & I’m sure that’s what contributed in getting me so sunburnt on my face)!


Because there were 3 tents worth of people sharing the same little camping area we all muddled in together, sharing gas canisters, sauces, pot washing facilities, gas stoves, cooking utensils, cooking pots, sunscreen & probably other things which I’ve forgotten.


What’s your must pack items when you go to a festival or camping in general?


Bye for now.
