Strategic packing

It has occured to me why packing bags for a weekend away can be such a difficult chore. It requires considerable pre-meditation about ones needs. For instance, one must think of dress habits, logical color combinations, weather conditions (sun, rain, snow?), and choosing the best pair of shoes for dual comfort and style. All in advance.

Even if you are a seasonal traveller, the most difficult thing is reducing your normal personal belongings to a few bare essentials items and then again, something is always forgotten.

Let alone one-self, why am I complaining? My thoughts are with friends that now have young families. The task of packing up the needs of a toddler or two, is even more challenging.

Furthermore, in view of the 100mL limit, packing must be carried out strategically, otherwise you will end up having things confiscated (like the jar of Vegemite that a friend had in her hand luggage on the way over from England). And be sure to close the lid of your tube of toothpaste before you travel, which is something I neglected last time.
