Traveling is my passion and traveling light is my goal which I find so hard to achieve but I am getting better.

I have created a check list which I have saved on my iPhone notes to avoid unpleasant surprises like forgetting my MacBookPro charger, which I did on my last trip. Vassia brought me her charger to Paros. It may seem like a no-brainer, but making a packing list forced me to differentiate between what’s necessary and what’s not. Plus, the check list keeps me on track before creating my travel, beach and night out outfits.

  1. I have to also remember to bring a reusable shopping bag. Some cities charge for bags which I agree with, however, I always have my bags in my car. So now especially when I fly, I have to add it to my list along with your great suggestions. I’m in love with the bird!

    1. I have the bags in the car too… maybe I could use my beach bag….I am in love with the bird too…
