The moments before I leave on any trip is always a bit stressful for me. I don’t know how to pack light. When I traveled on business, I always made sure I had an extra shirt, socks, tie, tshirt and underwear just in case. Maybe the years of working in IT always made me plan for the worse. I even carried a small clothes steamer to get the wrinkles out of my suit(s).
For this upcoming trip, I’ve got some warm clothes even though I’m going to Asia because the AC in the hotel rooms can be pretty cold. It’ll also be cold when I return. I packed enough for about 5 to 6 days without doing laundry. I’ll see if I can slim this down a bit more. I don’t remember how I managed to fit everything into a backpack before. As long as I have the mandatory things like my meds, eye glass, money, phone, passport, tickets, basic toiletries – I should be fine. I can always buy clothes if I forget something.
I guess I don’t need to pack my rice cooker.
p.s. I have never tried updating using the WordPress app on my phone. I’m going to try doing it when I travel.
