Ten on Tuesday

I've seen several friends doing the Ten on Tuesday posts lately, so I thought I'd give it a shot (read: I don't have a review ready to post today or any knitting content to show you). 

This week's theme is 10 Things to Bring on Vacation (did someone just say vacation... because I could really use one right now!)

1. Camera - I never leave home without one anymore (even if it's just my cell phone camera)!  Photography is one of my hobbies...

2. Knitting - This is a must.  Great to pass the time on the plane, in the car, relaxing pool/ocean side, etc.  I have found that no-brainer knitting tends to work best while on vacation however.  A list of the local yarn shops to visit while on vacation is a must too...

3. Book/Magazine - Again, a must.  If you don't want to knit, you need something to read!

4. Favorite Snacks - Whether you're flying or driving, you need you favorite snack foods with you!  For me, it's usually a mix of salty and sweet... Swedish Fish, Trail Mix, Peanut Butter Cups, Baked Chips, etc.

5. Comfortable Shoes - You need at least 3 pair of shoes on vacation... sneakers, flip flops and a dressier sandal.  If you come across this, by all means, remove said shoes...

6. Sense of Adventure - You never know what the open road might throw at you... be adventurous and discover fun places that you might not have mapped out from home!  Try new foods as well, especially the local faves.  I found a love for fried pickles in Charlotte 3 years ago!

7. Tickets/Paperwork - You can't get too far without airline tickets, hotel confirmations, etc.  Make sure you have everything you need in a folder before you go!

8. Companion - You're other half, best friend, Mom, Furbaby.... whatever works for you!

9. Umbrella - You never know when you might need one.  Get yourself a good travel size and tuck it in your bag!

10. Pictures of the Dogs - Or your actual dogs if you can.  I always have several photos of my kids with me.  I use them as my bookmarks!  If you can't bring your own dogs, try to show some love to the 4-legged babies that you meet while on vacation...

I have a giant golf umbrella tucked under the seat in every car we own, so I'm never caught without. And I even take a book to the doctor's office, so I don't have to read outdated copies of magazines I don't even like. And traveling with only 3 pairs of shoes? Sort of uncivilized, really. Men don't understand that, do they?

That's a great list!

It looks like I'm taking my dog on vacation this year, but the kitty will have to stay home to guard the house.

Vacation? What's that? LOL

Great list! Of course I'm behind again... what's new there? :) Miss you & all of my online buddies. I'm trying to fix that at the moment, I'm looking for a new job. Wish me luck!

Hi, we are visiting from the Portuguese Water Blog!

I agree completely with the animal photo - I've always got a picture of Sam (...don't worry, I also bring a pic of my husband!)!
