Minimum things to pack for travel:

  • Baby powder
  • Clothing soap (or just have your clothing washed at your destination)
  • Other toiletries that fit in your shaving kit
  • Laptop computer
  • E-Book Reader (gone are the days of packing 5 books)
  • MP3 player
  • Cellular phone (remember, skype can be used to make calls from your laptop – or you can have skype forward the calls to your cell phone)
  • Camera (I use the Nikon D90, it’s bulky but it’s excellent).

Condoms – Some souvenirs you don’t want to bring back.

A padlock – You never know when you will need to lock your stuff up at a hotel or at a beach somewhere.

Don’t Bring:

Lighters, liquids, travelers cheques, your girlfriend.
