Frequent Travelers





I can't believe that in a mere 16 days Justin and I will be flying across the globe to go to Paris and South Africa. This is my first time out of the country and it is going to be quite an adventure. I am just wondering, all you frequent travelers, if you have any packing tips. I am not sure what all to bring...how to prepare...it's all so new. Any thoughts?

pack everything you think you will need then go through it all and down size a little, then do it again and again until you have at least 3 outfits and pairs of shoes less than you started with! You never need as much as you think you will. Especially for overseas traveling, going lite is well worth it!

How GREAT you guys get to go! Have a Wonderful time! We will look for pictures on your blog.

roll you clothes---you can fit way more in ther- but Weigh first or you'll be charged! ANd family of 5 is totally right--you don't need everything you think you do.

Most important is to pack good comfortable shoes that you've been wearing for sometime. Don't buy and take brand new ones that aren't broken in or you'll be in pain. Also, remember that you want to bring home goodies for your kiddies and others (hint, hint) so remember that when you are packing. Don't worry too much about shampoo, soap and stuff, you can get it there and you would be surprised how much extra room all of that takes. Remember your camera and make sure you have good, new batteries in it.

I've had to go to the library to look through the books to see what Africa and Paris are like and just imagine in my mind that you were actually there . . . . please, please, new post!!
