packing list

I’m guilty of always forgetting something when I travel. Be it my toothbrush, my flip flops, clothes, or towels, there will always be one item that I forget.  It can be inconvenient when you forget to bring a few things but sometimes it can be disastrous especially when you leave without your wallet.

So without further ado, feast your eyes on the only packing list you’ll ever need. (I sure do hope so, since I refer to this one whenever I go out.)
