  1. Looks like a well curated collection. My only concern is you not having enough trial at home to meet MY comfort level. 🙂

    • 😀 I thought really hard about my packing list when I was in Mexico, paying attention to what I’d brought and didn’t need. I realised that household items not withstanding, I actually needed very little!

  2. OK…Let’s go!
    Looks like a really well thought out packing list.
    Good for you!

    • Someone’s eager. 😉

      I have been thinking about my packing list for about a year now. Seriously. I don’t think anyone realises how much thought has gone into this thing because of how quickly the departure thing is happening from the ticket purchasing. 🙂
