There is constant debate and list making going on over at Slow Travel, and virtually every travel site out there, about what to pack for a trip. I know it's tough and I honestly feel for all facing this dilemma. I get it!
I will tell you what is on my packing list as I do believe I have found the remedy to this very complex issue. It took me many years to figure this out and really get it down to a science. I am even flirting with the idea of writing a book about it. I do hope that this helps you in some small way.
Kathy's trip packing list made easy:
1. Whatever I freakin' want to bring!
2. See number one
Pack what feels right to you and don't be a slave to your luggage.
Enjoy your trip.
