    You are awesome!
    Can’t wait to see the pics you r going to post! ^^


  2. This is a great packing list for traveling light. I write alot of posts about packing, and packing light in particular and it seems to be the one thing that the most people have problems with. You’ve nailed it though. I notice in your photo you’ve got goo-tubes – if you haven’t used them before you will love them – they are my new favorite traveling “toys”

    Bit personal, but what brand of panties are you bringing? My friend has some ExOfficio that she likes:

    Also, I know it’s too late now, but you have you tried out Chaco’s? They are super light and comfy, I’m breaking in my first pair now as they’re perfect water sandals 🙂

      Oh and also, I luuuurv my Vapur bottle, so glad you have one!! I’m thinking about getting the new Element sport top they have, looks neato…

      Also, when I was trying to find the undies that my friend has, I noticed that there are bra and panties with pockets in them online, but I couldn’t see any pockets from the pictures.
