I travel with my trusted TUMI orange carry-on roller, which I’ve had for years (another beloved, reliable keeper).
So about 15 years ago, I created a very simple “life timeline”. It’s a word doc with year and major milestones in bullets below.
I love a simple product that solves a problem and is reasonably priced. As you can see, I bought 5 bottles of wine while I was away, and had to cram them into my carry-on (which I ultimately needed to check. Another first world problem).
Super random tip today. This is something that I learned while I was in Peace Corps Bolivia. If you have a burn, but have no aloe or cream, cut a thin slice of onion.
I bought a Trek E-Bike about a year ago – and love, love it. It’s probably one of my top five favorite purchases ever. Since I don’t have a car, it’s literally “my wheels” around Denver. With the two side bags, I can run errands, visit friends, and get fresh air.
If you're traveling to a non-English-speaking country, like to shop in ethnic food markets or are someone who prefers to read or write in another language, I highly recommend downloading the Google Translate App.
