At what point did I become such a packing procrastinator? I'm someone who is generally in bed at a decent (some, actually most, would say early) hour. Yet, night before a trip I am up packing and re-packing, sometimes into the wee hours of the morning. Case in point would be tonight (or technically last night since it is now after midnight). I didn't make a list for this trip (note to self - next time make a list). I mean I have my generic in my head list, but it doesn't always translate to well into my suitcase. Did I over pack? Oh, you betcha! Question is, did I over pack the right stuff? Guess I'll find out! But my suitcase & carry-on are finally zipped up and I'm about to call it a night. After I look through my suitcase one last time. Toiletries? Check. Underwear? Check. Pajamas? Check. Clothes? Check. Books? Check. Guidebook? Check. Camera? Check. Yup, I bought a new camera (still point and shoot, but with a bigger zoom - still hoping to get a DSLR one of these days but it was not meant to be for this trip). Passport? Check. Okay, I think I'm good. Eh, and if I'm missing something it just means a chance to go shopping! Right?
See you in a week or so. And in the meantime - Happy Thanksgiving!
