I want to share a little travel tip. When you go on holiday, do you settle in and feel at home easily? Or do you take a while? Dan says it always takes me a day to get into the
swing of things, which is annoying – get a grip, you're on holiday ffs – but my funny friend and long-time travel partner, Alfie, once gave me this piece of advice which has stuck:
"On any trip, as soon I get to the hotel I like to nest. I unpack my entire suitcase, hang things up and put them in drawers. I arrange my products in the bathroom, lay magazines from the journey out on the table, put the book I've brought to read by the bed, so it's like I'm at home. Then I feel ready for my holiday."
It's such an obvious and simple idea. So now, before following Dan's lead – dump bags and hit the streets immediately – I nest.
