So, packing with a purpose for travel…

So, you have heard it before, I am going to Paris soon! Yay me! Part of any trip or any change requires effort. And this fabulous fantasy holiday involves me preparing for my trip way ahead of time. Who am I fooling? All of my trips involve me getting ready way before anyone else. But…

So, these are some things to make a vacation easier and more pleasurable, at least for me!

So, I really like to be prepared when I go somewhere. Be it a walk down to the neighborhood pool, a day trip to the mountains, or going across the pond to Paris:). I like to have things to provide entertainment, keep me on a good track with my health, help keep a record of…
