  • what are you planning to do? Relaxing, action or total romance? Have you been there before and you know your way around or not?
  • who are you going with? Just yourself, you and your partner, friends, or family?

  2. I definitely pack light, wherever I’m going, and as a result have been known to scrounge clothing from my husband because I didn’t take enough. Of course, it’s a nice excuse to buy something new if you have forgotten something :)
