One bag is packed, the other mostly packed. I've got tickets, pounds and euros, the sewing machines are in for service.
I really enjoying planning for a trip, and love gadgets that make things easier. I try to get things that are really compact and help me cut down on what I need to bring along.
This time I found a great adapter made by SKROSS.
The only drawback is this is not a converter, only an adapter, so I still need the clunky plugs for the Macbook.
Another cool thing: a rechargeable backup charger for iPod and mobile phone. I know, "a what?"
And my last cool travel gadget is a filter water bottle. I drink a lot of water, especially when I fly and I hate paying the insane prices at the airport as well as contributing to all the plastic bottles getting disposed of. I did some research and picked one of these up last night at Bed, Bath and Beyond. The bottle with one filter was $10. I figure 3 fill-ups at a water fountain at the airport and this sucker has paid for itself. Additional filters are 2 for $10 and they are good for the equivalent of 300 bottles of water.
I plan to post regularly while I'm 'abroad' (I LOVE saying that--makes me sound so sophisticated.)
