I just want to start with giving full marks to all au pairs who packed their luggage for an entire year. It caused me several hours of headache to think which suitcase to pack, and how to do it without exceeding the weight limit. Just before my trip I did a shopping spree. Bad decisions. I couldn’t take half of the the clothes I bought. I have no idea when I’ll enjoy wearing them. Also this is just my way to Russia. How can I possible pack on the way home? I mean it’s no suprise that I’d like to do some shopping there too. Who wouldn’t,right? The presents I bring to the family won’t be in my luggage, which will leave me the opportunity to pack my new stuff. Also I can extend my luggage a bit and there’s 3 kg left, so hopefully it’ll be fine.
