More luggage on the return journey?
And now hold on tight, dear men: important news! Most of the guests leave Cologne with significantly more luggage than they brought with them. And this is definitely only due to Cologne's hospitality, but also to the numerous, popular shopping streets in Cologne! Just to mention:
- The Hohe Straße
- The Schildergasse
It is particularly important here for the faithful husband: Never let your wife out of sight. You can find the best shoes and the most beautiful clothes here very quickly, because the range in Cologne is simply huge!
How do I pack my suitcase?
How do you get as much as possible in a suitcase? Here are some tips on how to save as much space as possible:
- Lay out clothing as flat as possible and fill the entire area. Avoid "thick spots"
- Fill up caps and hats with small underwear or stockings if possible
- Do not bring jewelry boxes with you, but rather carry everything with you in small jewelry bags
- Place small parts (cables, belts etc.) in hollow articles if possible (e.g. glasses case)
- Always carry shampoo, toothpaste, etc. with you as travel items (available in small units especially for holidays in the drugstore)
- If you travel by plane, you should rather use a hard case, as the cases are always stacked during transport at the airport
- On the other hand, a normal suitcase is more suitable for a road trip, not a hard case. These "soft" suitcases are more likely to give in and "fill" the car better.
- Light luggage always up
- Please consider the following when traveling by car: The first-aid kit and the warning triangle must always be accessible, or you can simply put them in your car last!
- Secure the heavy load with ropes or tension belts so that the case cannot hit you in the event of an emergency brake
- Small parts should be collected in cloth bags (so that they do not fly through the car in the event of an emergency stop) and then inserted into free gaps between the suitcases
- To be on the safe side, you can also secure the entire luggage with blankets and fix it with ropes or lashing straps
