I told my friend she was nuts to think I was going away for ten days with only a carry on bag.
And a small duffle.
That’s it. That was the challenge Keri gave me. Then Becky said I could do it, and should do it. Why did I need to lug around all that stuff? I was going to travel, not move there.
I’ve had three weeks to consider just what I should take along. I’m attending the Web Summit – 48,000 other people are too. Four days of mingling with people from all over the world. I’d like to visit with a couple of heads of state that will be there, Gary Vaynerchuk, Robert Scoble, Facebook and Tinder people – you know, to discuss small town things. After all over half the world is comprised of small towns. We matter. (visit https://websummit.net/)
I’ll wear black pants, dressy comfy sleeveless blouse, black jacket and black shoes on the plane. (It’s all super comfortable, loose and looks great.)
I packed in the 21 inch suitcase:
- 5 pairs of underwear and 3 undergarments
- pajamas (bottoms and a tshirt)
- two leggings
- two sleeveless blouses
- two dresses that also double as long tops for the leggings
- one jacket
- one pair of jeans
- brown shoes
- jewelry and dopp kit
No kidding .. all of that.
In the small duffle-ish bag I packed:
- medicine and vitamins
- small purse with wallet, passport, notebook, charger and pens
- electronics (mini i pad and cords etc.)
- book to read on the plane
- house shoes
- Melaleuca snacks
I’m going to Lisbon for ten days with a carry on suitcase!
