Truth serum: packing everything up isn't always the problem, it's trying to get everything back
home. Room is always so precious and it can be hard to leave any smidgen for gifts picked up along the way, but what's really been of help are things that come in their own compact packages. Some oldie but goodies include my beloved CitySlips
with built in reusable tote and the Hold Me
makeup bag (for what's typically inside see here
). Also the previously featured PurifiCup
for filtering tap water on the fly and BassBuds
in their little velvet pouch. A tiny can of Ozium never hurts either, if it's a road trip.
Some newer finds are these silk and cotton TravelLiner
sheets and pillow case by Sea To Summit
which come in sleeping bag and double wide bed sizes. For someone who would bring their own linens (raises hands) this is beyond, beyond
. Then a little meal kit by Light My Fire
and Scandinavian designer Joachim Nordwall (get it here
at CampingSurvival). Inside are a spork, cutting board/colander, bowls and cup.
For the rest see my previous post here
. Happy travels everyone!
