I was recently lucky enough to be invited on a trip to Morocco, a place I’ve always wanted to visit. The country didn’t disappoint- it was such a wonderful mix of different cultures and eras.

Hello Freya fans! My name’s Katie Antoniou and I’m thrilled to be one of Freya’s new bloggers. I’m actually about to head off on holiday to America, so I thought I’d write a quick blog post to introduce myself and give you a peek inside my luggage before I set off. Pictured are some of my hand luggage essentials for a long trip- starting in the top left and working clockwise:
Music: I like to have something new on my ipod for a long plane journey- at the moment I have Gabby Young and Other Animals’ new album which has been the soundtrack to my summer.
Luxe City Guides: I used to have a real aversion to travel guides; so many just send you straight to all the tourist sites, whereas I actually prefer to discover all the best local hang-outs. I was sent the Luxe limited edition bespoke White Linen summer collection recently- you get to choose which 5 city guides it includes- and was thrilled to see that the London guide book included all the spots I would recommend to someone visiting our capital. I took this to be a good sign that these guys actually know what they’re talking about, so I’m looking forward to discovering other cities with their insider knowledge!
