What's in Lucie's bag...

Lucie travels around the world with her husband Rolland and they tell their story on their blog. In her backpack, Lucie put a menstrual cup and reusable cloth pads from Dans Ma Culotte. Before discovering her menstrual adventures, we asked her some questions...

This is Lucie and Rolland's travel card, and if we turn it over, the red dots become drops of blood :D lol

What is your favourite expression to say you have your period?

I don't really have one, I just say "I have my periods" because the issue with the expressions is that I immediately tend to visualise them... In any case, one remains very mysterious for me: the word "ragnagnas" is used in the place of the word "period", I've never understood where it comes from!

Generally speaking, how do you feel about it?

BAD! I often feel faint and the pain is very intense... I keep hope alive, it is often said that it gets better after having children!

When you're travelling, do you have different rituals or habits?

Using a cup takes on its full meaning! As a result, the ritual is the intense hand washing... even more than usual! Regarding my habits, I adapt them... I use my flask full of hot water as a hot water bottle to soothe pains. However, I noticed that I tend to make a kind of 'top ten' of the most suitable public lavatories to empty a cup, for example 'oh these lavatories are very clean and convenient with the sink inside' and Icelandic lavatories are the best so far!

Imagine we offer you a trek on the moon, it falls on the middle of your menstrual cycle... What do you take with you?

With no hesitation, my cup and reusable cloth pads ... Nevertheless, being able to put them all to boil may not be easy without gravity!

Do you have a story you would like to share with us, a piece of advice for the travellers?

When I packed for our round the world trip, I started by getting out the reserve of disposable pads and tampons I had in the bag of my previous trips... and I realised I had the same reserve in my handbag and honestly, it was so ridiculous to clutter up with all these things! As a piece of advice... I would say that in order to find the solution that best suits you, the best is to try. It's essential to feel comfortable with your body and to cast off the little worries in order to make the most of your trip without asking yourself questions.
