I am not alone!!!! You have no idea how good it felt to read all your posts! Even though I'm now checking out all the things you are buying, or thinking of buying. Last night after posting, I bought another pair of stretch jeans - I just discovered Democracy jeans and they are just about the most comfortable pants I've ever worn.
Scudder: I have the same urge to buy luggage and this year, I succumbed and bought a new roller bag. My daughter yelled at me but shut up when I gave her my old bag (which is still in very good condition).
goanywhere: The last overseas trip I took was in spring of 2018 so I totally get that!
Lulu: Ballet sleepers? Those sound interesting and I think I might need some! Could you give more info?
Hank: I should borrow you to talk me out of some of my purchases. ☺️
CT: Ripskirt? I had to check that out and now I want one, even though I won't be near a beach on this trip. I'm sorry about your Covid but as you pointed out, you'll have some extra immunity so that's good.
roubrat: I love the Amazon travel list idea - I just started one!
Leslie: I spent some time in Crete and did a bit of hiking, but it was 25 years ago and I haven't the faintest recollection of what I wore.
David: I'm still trying to decide whether to bring my laptop or get a tablet. Mine isn't huge - it's a 13" MB Air but a tablet would be lighter. That's a good idea about starching your jeans - never thought about that. Although all my jeans are stretch so it probably wouldn't work.
horsewoofie: Ha, yes, it is nice how we help each other spend money!!! Thanks for the wallet tip - unfortunately, I don't have time to order from RS since I leave on Monday.
Lo: I'm the same - I live in an area that's 10 miles from ANYTHING, and 2 1/2 hours from good shopping, so most of my purchases are online.
Pam: Thanks for the reminder about trial packing! I leave on Monday so I'm going to start Saturday and try some scenarios.
Carol: I love Tom Bihn bags and could easily spend a fortune there. I use his convertible clear cube for my 3-1-1 bag and toiletries, and have tons of pouches, his travel tray (another travel purchase for this trip), day bag and much more. And I have an Airtag and love it! It really works great!
itsv: I used to wear nothing but Chico clothes from the travel collection on trips. They are not only easy to pack but are easy to wash in a hotel room. I've expanded my clothing a bit but will still have a pair of their pants with me.
Andrea: I love wearing linen (and I don't get if it gets wrinkled). :) I just made myself a new top out of some nice linen from an online fabric shop.
sueamill: I do love how we all enable each other! 🤣
