TWQ: Vacation Items

As the time is peak for going on vacation, TWQ (The Weekend Question) takes a look at items you forgot to take...amd ones you wish you hadn't bothered to bring.

What items do you wish you had bought along on earlier vacations, and what items did you find were completely unnecessary and a waste of space?

My answers are:

1: I could probably have done with bringing a book to record the names of some of those places we take camera shots of. How can I remember them while looking back.

2: Once I bought a cassette recorder with me on a trip to the US. It was huge, and hardly ever used it.

Now it's over to you...

I often forget those pluggy adapter thingies and end up buying extra ones at the airport.

I tend to pack light though so seldom have un-needed items in the case. More often have to buy something whilst away.

I tend to pack way too much it seems and always bring more clothes than I need. I'd have to agree with you on needing to bring a book to write things down, too! The way my brain malfunctions lately, I'm surrpised I remember where it is I went to!

Here from Netchick's, Captain. Having done a lot of traveling, there are seldom things I forget to take--most things I have a traveling set and a set for home

But, I do remember on more than one occassion wishing I had a tripod with me (especially helpful for shooting waterfalls.

I use to often take a sports coat or a suit, but once when visiting family found myself speaking at a funeral, so I no longer take dressy clothes on vacation.

I could have fared better if Kelly Ripa were single and available and with me on the last vacation. (I submit this with total honesty!) :D)

It looks like experience is the only thing that gets us to take the right things!

Hello! I hast flounced over from NetChick's.

I like the idea of bringing a book/journal log with me to record what picture goes with which description. "Um, tell me again why I took a picture of that particular rock?"

I tend to pack too much underwear. I figure it's better than having too few.

I always manage to take something nice to wear, then never go anywhere nice enough to need it! And I will never forget my only canoe trip. When you are canoeing, take fewer clothes and more snacks. Leave your dry clothing in the car.
