Day three in Texas and I’m loving it. And no I haven’t picked “y’all” yet, l’m sure my Houston friend Whitney is highly disappointed. Neither have I seen any hats or cowboy boots around, maybe I haven’t got to the heart of Texan land yet. On the other note, here’s a list of things to bring for your next trip to the South:
… T-shirts!!! It’s warm, or warmer. The ones I brought just in case, happen to be my main wardrobe, which may or may not match.
… Flip flops and NOT boots. The later are much more comfortable to travel (except when you’re going through security), but simply don’t match the weather forecast.
… Band aids. You never know when you’ll need to take a walk and then cover up some blisters after the fact.
… Sunscreen and NOT an umbrella. Oh did I mention that the weather forecast lied, it definitely hasn’t rained or thunder-stormed yet.
… E-books. Space savers and back pain savers.
… Books in paper version for those times when all the electronic devices have to be turned off.
… A smile, for those times you need a stranger to put your luggage in the overhead bin.
… Toms. Best way to make an impression, if you want one that is.
… Anything that has an “i” in front of it ( especially the iPad). You’ll always be a hit on the plane. It’s also a great conversation starter and the kids will loooove you.
And if I happen to pick up any new suggestions in the next day and a half, I’ll make sure to let you know.
