Travel Tips for the Disillusioned Traveler

November 21, 2004

So. If you were going to leave behind all of your material possessions and take off across the country, and then eight weeks later across the world, what would you consider absolutely essential? I'm working on my list and I'd love your suggestions:

notebooks, pens, paper, postcards, stamps
undergutchies, extra socks, shirts, sweater, jacket, scarf
knitting supplies
personal cd player + special travel-themed mix CDs
+++on the road by jack kerouac
+++the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy by douglass adams
+++the four agreements by don miquel ruiz
(suggestions on any other essential books???)

(NOTE TO SELF: BookCrossing!!!)

credit cards, identification, bus pass + photocopies of all pertinent documents
flashlight + batteries (who knows.. might need 'em)
extra pair of glasses
shampoo, soap, washcloth, towel (cuz every traveler needs a towel, right?)
tampons, condoms (you never know when you might meet mr. right now)
fork, knife, spoon
travel coffee mug

goddess... what else does a girl need??

"Undergutchies?" Good gracious, child, you really have been in western Pennsylvania too long, haven't you? "I think a nice spot of tea and a trip to jolly ol' England would do right for you. 'Ow about some cheese and crumpets?" ;)

Send postcards!
