    What’s in My Suitcase? My Travel Favorites

    What I Won’t Leave Home Without

    Location: In My Suitcase

    Note – it’s repost Sunday! Enjoy this one again from one year ago  

    When we head off again in August for another year of travel our suitcase will not look the same as when we left the first time 18 months ago.  We have learned what works, what doesn’t and what are our favorite things.  So here are some of my travel favorites in my suitcase.

    Battery Power Pack – possibly our most used and most valuable item. Mophie is the brand we have and we spent $40 on it. We use it everyday  it fits in a purse or pocket and holds a charge for several days. Definitely one of my travel favorites in my suitcase.

    Packing cubes – not sure how I traveled all those years without packing cubes because they are now my best friend.  Especially as a fulltime traveler it’s so great to keep kinds of clothes and other items categorized in my suitcase.

    Cooler – our collapsible portable lunchbox size Igloo cooler was a gift from our niece and it is just perfect for our travel life, picnics and beach days.   We have even used it to keep things (Mayo, cheese, eggs) cold as we traveled by car from one lodging to the next. A very handy item and portable and one of my travel favorites in my suitcase.

    Ice pack – purchased for $2 this ice pack fits perfect in our little cooler and really changed the way we travel.  Such a simple item with a big impact.

    Freezer Bags and trash bags – with endless uses for storage and packing we have used gallon size freezer bags and kitchen size trash bags to keep things dry, to keep things wet, to organize, to protect and to store. From wet shoes to dirty clothes and olive oil to medicines plastic bags make our life easier.

    Notecards and post it notes – having a package of notecards with envelopes and post-it notes has come in handy. I like to leave notes for our Airbnb hosts or tuck notes in a package I’m mailing or a multitude of other uses these small and simple items are one of my travel favorites in my suitcase.

    Packing tape – our roll of packing tape has done a lot more than wrap up boxes.  We used it to fix a splintered iPhone cord and to make a cardboard sleeve for our butcher knife. We repaired a book binding and even a hat.

    Clothes pens – I initially packed these to use on the Camino but they have come in handy in so many ways.  As hangers when we don’t have any, to secure and close bags, to hold back mosquito netting on beds and to of course hang our laundry.

    Manicure kit – it’s not always easy to find a place to have a manicure, and I’ve learned over the years I need to care frequently for my nails or they get cracked and nasty.  So I carry a small manicure kit that serves my needs while on the road.  It takes no room at all and is one of my travel favorites in my suitcase.

    Scrabble – since leaving the USA in November 2016 we have played more than 400 games of Scrabble. Wow that sounds crazy!  But we love the game and the only problem is we are now both really good at it and we find ourselves occasionally in a bit of a stalemate!

    Noise cancelling headphones – this is Arne’s Favorite item on this list.  We both have Bose headphones we use on the plane. Arne also uses his sometimes to listen to music off his iPad or watch movies.  He votes this as his travel favorite in his suitcase.

    French Press – we have a small REI VERY LIGHTWEIGHT titanium French Press and I love it.   Almost all the places we stay have a hot water pot and we love to make French Press each morning instead of drinking the usual Nescafé.  Traveling with a French Press is one of my travel favorites in my suitcase.

    Foldaway daypack – A few months into our journey we added this item and have used it a ton. It folds up into a little square but when open it is perfect for hikes or city walks when we want to carry a sweater, beach towels, water or just about anything for the day.

    There are things we have been carrying that we don’t plan to include any longer. This includes our kitchen knives, chess board, hiking poles, chamois towel and our giant toilette bag.  I plan to buy a smaller toilette bag and force myself to carry less.

    I’ll hold on to a few tried and true clothing items but plan to throw out many things and replace them with new, Comfy, loose-fitting clothes in mix and match colors.  I clearly know what works and what doesn’t now,  and I think I can bring fewer items while feeling like I have more.  It’s a challenge I am looking forward to.

    What’s in my suitcase? My travel favorites, the bare necessities and the tried and true.

    Travel & Staying Fit – A Difficult Part of the Journey

    Challenges of Full-Time Travel

    Location: Punta Cana Dominican Republic

    When we started this life of full-time travel I imagined getting in awesome shape while we traveled.  But it hasn’t been that easy.  In fact, it’s one of the more difficult parts of this ongoing journey – getting and staying in shape.  Not at all what I was expecting.

    There are several factors I’ve identified to this particular travel challenge.  But before I share those, let me say that this has been a life long battle for me.  Keeping a healthy weight has never come easy for

    Running in our neighborhood

    me.  I am not a tiny girl…a comfortable size 12 or 10 is my USA size.  But I fluctuate a lot and always have.

    A decade ago when I began running I found a wonderful new outlet for both stress release and weight control.  I love to run!.  But in that decade I have also experienced some severe injuries that kept me from running up to as long as a year.  Suffering from sciatic nerve damage and plantar fasciitis being two of the worst things that have sidelined me.

     

    But even when I am healthy, running is not always feasible on this full-time travel journey.  I was surprised to find as we circled the globe how many destinations are unsafe for running; dangerous roads, uneven sidewalks, vicious dogs (remember the  dog bite?) not to mention many countries where a woman should not be out alone.  These surprises stymied my running for months at a time.

    We cycle when we can

    We are currently in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, and I am really enjoying running here.  After not running for the entire month we were in Guatemala (all the reasons listed above) Punta Cana offers a flat, safe (sidewalks wow!) and easy routes direct from our apartment.  Today I did 3.5 and my goal is 5 miles before we leave here.

    Swimming is another favorite work out of mine, but alas, in three years of travel I can only think of three places we have been where a swimming pool was large enough to swim laps.  Most pools are very small, and open ocean swimming isn’t something I’m comfortable with.

    I can do yoga just about anywhere, and I do.  I do it on my own nearly every day, and take classes when they are convenient and affordable.  Yoga builds strength and flexibility as well as clears the mind and helps focus, but I really need to have a good strong regular aerobic exercise to keep my weight down.

    Yoga for body and mind

    And then of course there is the food.  And the alcohol.  I love to eat and cook and try lots of new foods in every country we visit.  Some countries the food is better than others, but I’ll try everything once (well

    We hike and walk a lot

    almost everything) and we enjoy food as a cultural experience wherever we are. Although I believe we are eating fresher and more organic and locally grown than in the USA, we still eat with pleasure and sometimes too much, despite the fact we usually only have two meals a day.

    During our first part of the Grand Adventure I drank alcohol every day, usually a gin and tonic or two, sometimes beer.  But this past winter I decided the caloric intake of alcohol just isn’t worth it to me, particularly when I am in countries where I feel like I’m not getting enough exercise.  So I cut way back on alcohol.  I now drink one or two drinks a week, and sometimes not even that.

    But alas, I am returning to the USA in May after nearly ten months of travel, about ten pounds gained since leaving.  When we returned to the USA last summer it was the same…and I worked all summer to take it off, successfully.

    Hopefully being back in the USA where I know I have access to the YMCA as well as safe running roads

    Swimming in Thailand

    and trails I can get back into a fabulous and fit daily work out routine.  It’s one of the things I am most looking forward to back in Washington State.

    So I have two goals;.

    1. Drop the ten pounds gained and perhaps a few more.  Feel fit and ready to tackle the world once again when we head out for our third round of the Grand Adventure next September.
    2. While traveling focus on aerobic exercise, fresh and locally grown and prepared food, eat only two meals a day, drink lots of water and diminish the amount of alcohol and sugar I consume.

    Want to join me in a summer get fit challenge?  Let’s do it.

    A Very Merry Christmas

    From My Fab Fifties Life

    Location: Rio de Janeiro Brazil

    Christmas is here again. So fast! The years roll by, another one gone. And another opportunity for gratitude is here – time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

    For the fourth year in a row we are spending Christmas outside of the USA. For the

    A Very Merry Christmas

    Our 2018 Christmas Card

    second year in a row, I will not be with my children over the holidays. That is surely my

    greatest regret.

    But we will be together in March, when we will celebrate Christmas in March. The date is less significant than the moments together so I look forward to that time.

    A Very Merry Christmas

    Our 2013 Christmas in Italy

    I have found Christmas outside of the USA is celebrated quit differently.  In the past decade I have celebrated Christmas in Italy, Burkina Faso, Thailand, South Africa and this year in

    Brazil.

    Most countries focus less on gifts and spending money than we do in the USA. Outside of Europe decorating is minimal.  The holiday revolves around family and church.

    A Very Merry Christmas

    Thailand tree, 2016

    Each year that we are out of the USA we have found a way to have a tiny tree.  A tiny bit of holiday cheer wherever we are calling home at the moment. This makes me happy.

    Happy and content in this crazy life we are leading.

    Our year has been bursting with joyful experiences and merry adventures. We are

    completely blessed. And each of you are a significant part of that blessing.

    Thank you. Thank you for the love and support you give us. I hope we give even the tiniest bit back.

    A Very Merry Christmas

    Merry Christmas!

    Wishing you all peace and joy, time with family, safe travels and warm embraces.

    From Brazil with love,

    Feliz Natal

    The Night Before Christmas

    I Still Believe

    Location: The Night Before Christmas

    Note this is a refresh of an old blog that I love with some new photos – including the title photo which is me (left) with my sister and brother in 1964.

    I was only five years old when I learned there was no Santa.  I remember it clearly.  I actually wasn’t even five yet…just a few weeks shy.  It was Christmas morning 1964.   The little neighbor girl who was friends with my seven year-old sister came over to see our gifts.  My sister was showing her this cool play kitchen Santa had brought when Jodi said to my sister “you know Santa is really just your Mom and Dad.”  Those were her exact words.  I remember it 54 years later like it was yesterday.

    Well Jodi was the youngest child of a large family, where apparently, her older brothers and sisters had not managed to keep the big secret from her.

    I’m not sure either my sister or Jodi even realized I was standing right there.

    I remember my sister’s reaction – she cried and was very upset.  And I remember my reaction.  I thought to myself “Well, that makes perfect sense.”  And I never doubted it or worried about it from there on, although I didn’t let my parents or siblings know I possessed this knowledge.

    The Night Before Christmas

    Hawaiian version

    That same Christmas was the year I received my first book.  We had lots of books in the house, but I had never been given a book that was all mine.  Just for me.  That book was a beautiful copy of “The Night Before Christmas” by Clement Clark Moore.  It’s ironic that I received this book the same morning that I learned there was no Santa Claus.

    I adored that book.  I cherished it.  It had a rich, beautiful red cover and beautiful illustrations that I looked at for hours and hours and in later years read cover to cover.  I didn’t let my siblings touch it and it luckily got packed away and preserved in the decades that followed.

    When I was a young Mom I once again fell in love with the book as I read it each year to first my first-born son, and later both my boys.  I easily could recite the poem without the book and often did.  One Christmas my two children and I put on a play of the poem for the family, complete with costumes and scenery.

    The Night Before Christmas

    Some of the older copies in my collection

    It was in these years when my children were very tiny that I picked up an interesting book at the library (yes this was way before Google) all about the history of our Christmas traditions.  I learned so many fascinating things from that book, including the amazing history of the poem “The Night Before Christmas”.  It wasn’t until then, that I understood that many of the holiday traditions I took for granted, including Santa Claus himself, were fairly new developments in recent generations and the poem “The Night Before Christmas” was largely responsible for the image of St. Nicholas we know today.

    The Night Before Christmas

    The flocked version

    Until Moore wrote the poem in 1823 as a gift for his children, St. Nicholas had a Christmas Day arrival not Christmas Eve.  Moore’s image of the “jolly elf” arriving under darkness on Christmas Eve is one we still accept today, elaborated and secured for all time by the Coca-Cola image of Santa in the early 20th Century.

    Moore’s poem also brought into cultural acceptance the idea of Santa’s reindeer as he named them individually for the first time.  And of course the popularity of the later poem “Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer” added additional holiday fun to that aspect of our Christmas cultural icon.

    Once I began to learn and understand the history of Santa Claus in the United States and around the world I became infatuated with the story and the history.  I started purchasing new and antique copies of “The Night Before Christmas” each year and through out the year.  As my love for the story grew as an adult, I also began to receive antique copies of the book from friends and family.

    I currently own more than 30 copies of the book.  My oldest of the collection is a 1905 edition.  I have some fun versions including two Hawaiian versions, a Mickey Mouse version, Holly Hobby and two illustrated by Grandma Moses.

    I have flocked version, a pop-up book version, and one of the most fun versions is a revolving picture book.

    But my favorite will always be the original one I received that Christmas in 1964, published in

    The Night Before Christmas

    My favorite – The book I received for Christmas 1964

    1960.

    The same day I received this amazing storybook of Santa Claus was the same day I learned there is no Santa Claus.  And perhaps my love and adoration for this poem all these years was my way of accepting that truth, while still believing in the Christmas spirit.

    So let’s believe together;

     

    A Visit from St. Nicholas

    AKA The Night Before Christmas

    By Clement Clark Moore

     

    “Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro’ the house

    Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

    The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

    In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

     

    The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

    While visions of sugar plums danced in their heads,

    And Mama in her kerchief, and I in my cap,

    Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap-

     

    When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,

    I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

    Away to the window I flew like a flash,

    Tore open the shutters, and threw up the sash.

     

    The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow,

    Gave the luster of mid-day to objects below;

    When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,

    But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer,

     

    With a little old driver, so lively and quick,

    I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

    More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,

    And he whistled, and shouted, and call’d them by name:

     

    “Now! Dasher, now! Dancer, now! Prancer and Vixen,

    “On! Comet, on! Cupid, on! Donder and Blitzen;

    “To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall!

    “Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!

     

    As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,

    When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;

    So up to the housetop the coursers they flew,

    With the sleigh full of toys – and St. Nicholas too:

     

    And then in a twinkling, I heard on the roof

    The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.

    As I drew in my head, and was turning around,

    Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound:

     

    He was dress’d all in fur, from his head to his foot,

    And his clothes were all tarnish’d with ashes and soot;

    A bundle of toys was flung on his back,

    And he look’d like a peddler just opening his pack:

     

    His eyes – how they twinkled! His dimples: how merry,

    His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry;

    His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,

    And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;

     

    The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,

    And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.

    He had a broad face, and a little round belly

    That shook when he laugh’d, like a bowl full of jelly:

     

    He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,

    And I laugh’d when I saw him in spite of myself;

    A wink of his eye and a twist of his head

    Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

     

    He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,

    And fill’d all the stockings; then turn’d with a jerk,

    And laying his finger aside of his nose

    And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.

     

    He sprung to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle

    And away they all flew, like the down of a thistle:

    But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight –

    Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

    In Sickness and In Health – When You Are Sick or Injured While Traveling

    Location: The Grand Adventure

    It’s been more than a month since I felt myself coming down with a cold.  My glands were swollen and my throat was sore. We were walking the cold and wet Camino and I started pumping the vitamin C hoping…

    Alas, four and a half weeks later – and a lot of cold and flu meds, one round of antibiotics and a vat of cough syrup – I am now only coughing a couple of times an hour.

    Seriously – four plus weeks.

    About the time I was starting to feel better, I spent an entire day on the laptop, during a rainy and windy day in Cadiz, Spain.  The next morning I woke up with a pinched nerve in my neck and a terrific pain in my arm.

    I’ve been nursing that along now for the past week.

    It’s not fun being sick or injured when you travel.  But the reality is, when you travel full-time, it’s going to happen.  There is no way around it.  Eventually you are going to get sick or have an accident or injury.

    Since we started our travels two and half years ago the worst thing that has happened was when my husband got bit by a dog in Thailand.  Since then we have both suffered colds (although I always seem to get it worse than he does) and stomach issues (never fun, and we are very cognizant of what goes into our mouths) as well as general aches and pains most Fabulous Fifties people suffer.

    I visited a dentist in Tunisia when I had a very painful tooth.  She was great and helped me eliminate the pain without anything too invasive.

    All in all I feel like we have been pretty lucky.

    We carry general over the counter meds from the USA as well as some prescription antibiotics for emergencies.  And we have found pharmacies around the world are very helpful.

    Although my cough lingers ever so slightly I feel well on my way back to 100%.  I’ve put myself on an ibuprofen regiment for my pinched nerve (self diagnosed but I’ve had this before and this is what my doctor recommended) and have committed to having perfect posture when I am working on the laptop from here on.

    And I’m thankful.  Thankful we are healthy enough in our Fab Fifties to tackle this grand adventure – come rain or shine, and in sickness and in health.

    Fabulous!

    Thanks for sharing our blog!

    My Fab Walking Life

    Location: Antiparos Greece

    Walk On

    And where do we go from here? Which is the way that’s clear? Walk On.

    Taking a few liberties with David Essex lyrics “Rock On”.  I remember this song from Junior High (1973) – I’d never have imagined back then how it might be the theme of my life.  Walk on.

    Walk on

    Walking in Antiparos

    Walk On

    Walking in Santorini

    I use the health tracker on my iPhone to track my miles – especially when we are in training mode like we are right now.  Preparing for our second Camino de Santiago just three weeks from today. But even when we aren’t “training”, our lifestyle involves a great deal of walking.  The best possible exercise there is.

    Thanks to my health tracker, I know that I have walked 4600 miles in the last three years.  That’s like walking from Seattle to New York and half way back.  Or about a fifth of the way around the world. Not bad for an old gal.

    Walk On

    Walking in Romania

    Since beginning our world tour, we have come to realize how walking is a mode of transportation for most people around the world – but not in the USA.  We much prefer not to have a car on our travels, to avoid the hassle of parking, gas and navigation.  But

    Walk On

    Walking in Australia

    sometimes we need a car.  Even when we do have a car, like here in Antiparos, we still walk everywhere.  Yesterday we walked from our house 7.8 miles round trip to visit the caves.  As we arrived at the caves most of the other tourists were arriving by car or scooter.  Some by bicycle.  We were the only walkers.

    Walking offers so many benefits beyond the health benefit.  It helps you slow down and be present.  It provides you an incredible opportunity to see and hear things that are not possible from a car; plants, animals, bugs, geology.  We stop often when we are walking to inspect little treasures, from a tiny solitary blossom to a giant geological feature.  Walking puts you up close and personal with so many things – things people in cars never realize are even there to enjoy.

    Walking is wondrous.

    However, walking is also time consuming.  It’s a bit like golf.  Not a sport you can take up if you have a lot of time constraints.  But for us, time is a precious gift we have. A luxury. And so we walk.

    Walk On

    Walking in Berlin Germany

    We could have taken the car to the caves, but instead we walked.  We could have taken a bus in Berlin to visit the wall, but instead we walked.  We could have hired an Uber in the big cities, but instead we walked. We could have driven to the beach, the castle, the store…but instead we walked.  Because we love it.  It is good for us.  And we have the time.  

    My Fab Fifties Walking Life.  For this I am grateful.

    Walk On.

    Travel Shoes for Fab Fifties Girls

    Travel Shoes

    I still have my feet on the ground, I just wear better shoes.  – Oprah Winfrey

    Travel Shoes

    I have a lot of miles on my Kuru Hiking Shoes

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  Deciding what travel shoes to bring on the Grand Adventure is hard. Maybe the hardest thing.

    As a Grey Goddess on the Go my tootsies take a beating. At age 58 I’ve put a lot of wear and tear on the old dogs. And I feel it everyday.

    Travel Shoes

    Brooks Running Shoes

    As a child I suffered from foot pain because I have really high arches. Crazy high.  I was
    told once I had ballerina feet with that high arch (too bad I didn’t get the ballerina body to go with the feet).  As a teen I suffered very painful shin splints when I was a cheerleader.  In my twenty’s and thirty’s I wore high heels and boots and flip-flops – none with good support or even well made for that matter.  I pay for it now.

    So footwear and travel shoes are constantly on my mind. Particularly with my current issues with plantar fasciitis.

    I own a pair of Good Feet orthotic shoe inserts that I move around between my shoes. These inserts got me back running after almost a year of constant pain of sciatica.  I paid $200 for the orthotic inserts. Worth every penny.

    In my suitcase I currently have Eight, (seriously EIGHT) pairs of shoes;

    1. My hiking shoes. These are a godsend. Not even remotely attractive but they do the job. These are Kuru brand, a company out of Utah focuses on top quality active footwear for people like me who suffer from various foot pains. My shoes are specific for plantar fasciitis. I ordered them online and paid $130.

      Travel Shoes

      Keen Sandals work for everything

    2. My running shoes. I’m currently on a running hiatus as I train for the Camino, but my Brooks Running shoes also serve as a backup hiking shoe. I’ve been a loyal Brooks customer for many years. Did you know it’s a Washington company? I paid $110 at my local running store in Gig Harbor.
    3. My Keens. If you’ve never had a pair of Keen footwear go get some now!  For travel, for walking, for beach, for going in the water, for everyday, Keens are such a fabulous shoe with great arch support. I’ll even hike in these. I always choose the closed toe for more foot protection. I bought this pair last year in Spain. I paid $100.
    4. My two black sandals. I really don’t need two black sandals. It’s just silly. I’m torn because one has a bit of a heel and I hardly ever wear it even though it’s comfy (Camper for The Walking Company $60). I keep holding on to these because I think I’ll want them for more formal dress on the cruise we are doing in December. The other black shoe is a flat sandal but with great arch

      Cute and comfy only $24

      support and it’s so stinking cute.  I actually bought these from a Facebook ad for $24!  Should I keep them both? A dilemma.

    5. My tan sandal. Last summer I bought a pair of tan mules from the Frye leather store while I was in Nashville.  I regretted it.  I spent a fortune on those shoes and they caused me so much pain. Apparently you can’t wear mules when you have plantar fasciitis. So my friend Kathy bought the mules from me and I turned around and I bought these tan sandals and I’m much happier. Super arch support, my foot stays firmly in place and the Velcro is adjustable for when it’s hot and my feet swell. The only thing I don’t like is my feet sweat in these. These shoes are a orthotic brand called Vionic. I paid $75. I would definitely buy from this company again.
    6. My Flip flops. It’s very rare that I wear flip-flops anymore, even these that are specifically designed for arch support and comfort. I bought these OluKaii brand in Hawaii and paid $40. They don’t take up much room in my suitcase and do come in handy. I’m just careful not to wear them very often or for very long.

      Travel Shoes

      One inch heels by Camper

    7. My Black Street Shoes. I just threw out a pair of black flat sneakers (see photo below). I’ve had these a couple of years. For sneakers, I paid a small fortune for them ($100) at Nordstrom and so I’ve  really tried to love them.  But they just aren’t comfortable and they are a bit too small. So I replaced them in Romania with a black walking shoe by Ecco. I’d been eyeing this Danish brand for a while (See the title photo to see these great shoes). They have great arch support. I bought them a half size big to give my expanding feet some comfort. I paid $120.

    Have you been adding all this up? Jeeze!  Having foot problems is expensive! I have friends who have recommended Jambu as well as Orthofeet. I haven’t tried those yet. I have also had good success with Teva.

    Travel Shoes

    The ones I threw away – just not working for me.

    So if you are a Fab Fifty Female on your feet a lot like me consider some of the options I’ve listed here.  It will keep you moving if you are traveling or just going about your day.

    Tip – use rubber bands (elastics) to put your pairs of shoes together before packing in your suitcase.  This is a great way to save space.

    Travel Shoes

    These are super comfortable

    Keep a spring in your step and a song in your heart!! Fabulous!
