    Interesting list. But 7 pairs of underwear? My approach is to bring some bio friendly laundry soap which is light and takes up little room, and then do a periodic quick laundry in the sink to cut down on times such as underwear, socks and t-shirts.

      James: I didn’t write that very well. I should’ve said, “one pair of underwear for every two days gone up to two weeks.” I hate doing laundry on the road so I take more than most. They take up so little space.

      I travel 21 days or more with 5 dri fit shirts, a couple of layers, one dress and shoes to match all, a pair of dress jeans and like three undies that I wash out daily and a couple of pairs capris for the summer, water pants if I’m going to Northern Europe/ Scotland /Ireland and hiking shoes. Never forget your back up battery charger for your devices! Usually I come home with unworn clothes. Heading to Umbria in September for two weeks Any great suggestions?

    For flights, I never leave without my noise canceling headphones and a tennis ball (put behind your lower back when you sit and it becomes a massage. Also loosen up feet by rolling it around under arch). Gum and mints. Extra toothbrush. Extra pens. And never skimp on the quality of socks.

      Thanks, Janet. Good tips, all. Due to my complete intolerance for babies on flights, I should invest in some ear plugs. I don’t do headphones because I don’t do music. I always read. Where’s your next adventure?

        I moved and flew 21 hours to the Netherlands with kids aged 6 months, 3 and 5 years And then I traveled back and forth to the USA and throughout Europe on my own with these little kids. I remain sympathetic to parents traveling with small children even though mine are grown.
