What You Should Pack For Vacation

The best advice I can give you when traveling is to PACK LIGHT!!  If there is something you desperately need, you can usually find it eventually.  It’s so nice to feel light and free on your travels and not weighed down because you are carrying so much stuff. Handwash your clothes, wear them over and over (trust me, no one will care), and get a Kindle for those long bus rides.
