So, after watching Jessi’s video (see my last blog) about traveling light, I remembered that I went to Cambodia/Laos for nearly 3 weeks and didn’t check any baggage. For my upcoming trip to Scotland, I won’t do exactly that but I am travelling light – at least going there.
My friend Ann told me about this clever trick that she and her hubby often do: pack a small suitcase and stick it in a larger one. This way, when I come back, I’ll have a whole huge suitcase to bring home goodies.
Since I’m planning on doing some Christmas shopping while there, I thought I’d try this. The trick is still trying to get 3 weeks worth of stuff into the small one.
Here’s what I’ve packed in the small suitcase:
2 pairs of pants, 2 t-shirt,s 4 long sleeved t –shirts, 7 pairs of undies, 7 bras, 7 pairs of socks, 1 hat, 1 scarf, 1 pair of gloves, 1 pair of shoes, My toiletries, Map of thrift shops in Edinburgh (I know, right?), List of thrift shops in London, Extra book to read.
In my carry on I’ll have a change of undies and t-shirt, my prescription meds, some toiletries (like my toothbrush and toothpaste) book, magazine, crossword puzzle, journal, pen, camera and all the rechargers etc. that go with that, and teeny laptop to store photos on. I’ll also carry my small cross body purse.
I’ll wear sweats, t-shirt, socks and running shoes and a fleece vest and ski jacket.
I might still add my rain pants. Did I forget anything?
