Am I the only one who seems to be packing something both quirky and unique to the destination every time I go on a trip?
When my sister and I went to China, my mom packed us an entire suitcase (back when airlines weren’t greedy and allowed two suitcases on international flights) full of snacks!
This past winter, when I was coming up with a packing list for my semester in England, I insisted upon rain boots and a cute-but-portable umbrella after being warned constantly of the raining (not an exaggeration… at all). I was so sure that this was what I wanted that when my bag was over the limit at the airport, I took the rain boots out, put the tennis shoes in, and wore those big, rubbery, polka dotted suckers from Detroit to Paris to Manchester. Of course, I promptly took them off once I boarded the plane each time, but that’s beside the point. And it was SO worth it…
Look! My umbrella made it places! 😉
What’s sort of silly things have you dragged around the world with you? Any special item you always have to pack?
