We are leaving shortly for Dulles, then to Paris and various locations in France. I’m thinking of the days when people packed steamer trunks, hatboxes and the like for trans-Atlantic travels.
This is what I’m taking for an 89 day journey. (W. has roughly the same).
And yes, I know you backpacked around the world, or went from Capetown to Cairo with three shirts and a pair of hiking shorts, or made it from San Antonio to Buenos Aires with a single carry-on bag. That’s great.
But I’m old and I need a few creature comforts, plus books, laptop, universal converter, etc. Plus I don’t want to do hand laundry every single day.
Everything fits into my computer briefcase and my new mid-size Away suitcase, which wheels around silently and effortlessly.
Looking forward to france-blogging, wine-blogging, picturesque village-blogging and so forth.
