As most of you have probably seen by now – I love bringing a ukulele with me on my trips (both private and business trips). I already posted a little overview on my travels by car, here’s part two with air travel destinations:
This is where it gets really interesting. I travel quite frequently with my Kala Travel Uke and always bring it as a carry on. I never had any problems bringing it – however, I usually fly Austrian Airlines. I don’t know how the ultra cheap airlines handle it.
The ukulele case usually fits in the overhead bin – just make sure, that the other passengers don’t crush it with their heavy trolleys. Other than that there’s not much you have to think about.
Uke and I took our first big trip together in June 2018 – to Paris. Can’t get any better than that, right? I was actually on a business trip but had the opportunity to spend the Sunday before with some sightseeing. Since it was my first time visiting Paris there was lots to see for me – and I did get some really nice ukulele pictures out of it 😉
I didn’t get to play a lot, because I had a little incident with my uke and the strings got busted – you can read the story here.
In October 2018 I attended the Berlin Ukulele Festival for the first time. Of course I had to bring my uke for that. I was only there for two days and there wasn’t a lot of time to take pictures and do some sightseeing with uke. So I got up really early on Sunday to take a long walk and take pictures. There’s still tons that I haven’t posted yet. So stay tuned for more to come.
Another business trip brought us to Brussels in December 2018. It was my first time there and I really enjoyed having some time to do sightseeing as well. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a lot of good picture spot, so not many photos from that trip. However, I did practice a lot (mainly Christmas songs) in my hotel room, which was nice too.
In 2018 hubby and I decided that we wanted to try something new. So far we’ve always spent Christmas with our families. This time we wanted to take a trip. Since flights to Milano were quite cheap and we’ve both never been there it was decided quickly that that’s where we’re going. We had a really great time and since hubby brought his camera, we took lots of nice ukulele pictures. There’s still more to come, so stay tuned.
I usually don’t bring my uke on two day business trips, cause there’s no time to play or take pictures anyway. But when I was travelling to Leipzig in January 2019 I knew that I would have all Friday afternoon to do some sightseeing, go to the zoo and get my ukulele out.
It turned out to be a good choice to bring my uke – beautiful photo spots and I even got around to write a song in my hotel room.
