We no sooner get to Maine than we are repacking our bags for a month away. From my Delta flight attendant days, I learned that packing light is the best way to travel.
I find it helpful to make a list of everything that might be needed and as each item goes into the suitcase, check it off.
Black and white are perfect for travel. Add a pair of favorite jeans and with very few pieces it is possible to have an extensive wardrobe. I won’t be seen by the same people day after day so what difference does it make if the same shirt or pair of pants is worn multiple times?
Knit tops that require no ironing are practical choices. Tightly rolled and packed close, they take up minimal space in a suitcase.
Shoes are always the hard part. Finding ones that are comfortable for walking and have some style is a challenge.
These days I go nowhere without fitflops. They have good support and are oh so comfy except for the most difficult terrains.
For sturdier shoes, I’m crazy about Nike’s Air Pegasus. They are light, a little more stylish than traditional tennis shoes and perfect for a mostly black and white wardrobe.
For nights out I throw in a pair of sandals that are also suitable for walking the lesser challenging streets.
There you have it, a not quite full suitcase that leaves room for the treasures I expect to find!
What packing trips can you share?
