When our daughter was still little, we had more opportunities to travel by car; we mostly visited Spain or Italy where have warmer weather, high-quality food and wine and beach; moreover, friendly locals from the South Europe. We had a good time during these years. What a pity that we had not been making any road trip for years. Therefore, an idea of traveling by car came out.
It was not easy to plan a road trip thoughtfully and properly; things about daily driving distance, where to stay, where to visit, pre-order the entrance tickets and so on that we had to plan and schedule. Detailed plans make better travel experiences.
Moreover, we had to pack our clothes for three weeks. For the trip we had reserved hotels and local apartments for different situations; so that one side, we could experience the local living atmosphere and lifestyle, and on the other side, it was easier for just one or two nights stay. From our past experiences, we packed our clothes with the luggage; however, we took large plastic bags for other things that did not fit the luggage. That was packing nightmares.
Luckily, we could make our road trip with WACÙ this time; it helped us to pack things easily. From my previous articles, I had shown you how practical it is to use WACÙ; this time, I would like to share with you how WACÙ helped us during the three weeks tour. Here I made a list for you to review the previous articles, feel free to read. Moreover, I edited a video, please turn on the HD quality and watch it.
We had left Germany for our Road Trip in the middle summer; during the last days on the way back home, the season has changed to Autumn. We had learned from our experience, we did not forget to bring some pieces of Long-sleeved clothes with us. From the previous articles, you might realize that it is a good idea to pack your clothes systematically with WACÙ; T-Shirts, Pullovers, Pants or Jackets, the same classification in the same bag (or bags). It is not only easy to pack but also to search. One side of the bag is transparent; you can see what stuff inside before you open the bags.
A WACU machine operates by a power cable; it is powerful and easy. There are always sockets on the bedsides in the hotel rooms. I fixed and packed our clothes in bed and connect WACU to the sockets for packing. During our three weeks Road Trip, we changed eight hotels and local apartments for staying. No matter where we stayed, there was no problem for us to use this little machine. Moreover, if you remember, at the end of May, I traveled with a travel group for eight days; I stayed in seven hotels in eight days; that was convenient to pack with WACU.
This time, we decided to stay in Peniscola, a beach town in Spain for a week. In this city, what we needed were different than regular travel destinations; two beach towels for each of us was necessary. All towels occupied a vast space. I have to admit that I had to pack beach towels with large plastic bags before I get to know about WACU. Packing with black plastic bags was not pretty and convenient.
This time, we packed all beach towels and bed Covers in three WACU vacuum bags. After all, three bags stacked together were less than 25cm; that was perfect for storing in the trunk. It is common to travel by car in Europe; now, we can finally travel elegantly.
Beautiful Vacuum Bags
You might know that WACU offers five different design vacuum bags (feel free to click the link and check the bags on the official website); each design has three sizes. The bags are designed thoughtfully for housekeeping and traveling. This time when we stayed in Barcelona, our apartment was in the old town, city center; no cars can drive in. We rented a parking place nearby the flat; which means we had to carry all our luggage and stuff to our apartment through streets. Some local people asked me about the bag, ” what is this colorful bag for?” I am glad that I won’t pack my stuff with trash bags anymore while traveling.
Easy To Carry
I think the biggest successful part of WACU is that the machine is so tiny; it makes everything so simple. My the other half is full of praise for this machine. I mentioned that we had bought another WACU machine; sometimes we have to travel separately at the same time. So we both can pack our luggage with WACU and head to different destinations. A man comments on a housekeeping and packing machine? I think WACU has hit the point.
This is a cooperation project with WACÙ.
