What's the one thing....

I tried to find that thread. It was something like "What's the one thing you wish you had packed?"

For Dreams, I would say a bottle opener.

It took us over 5 minutes to find the one in the room to open our sodas and beer.

It is mounted in the bathroom in front of the toliet...go figure :)

Lets start a new one for fun until you find the old one...lol

Extra Extra Underwear... You change many times during the day.

A warm and cosey sweatshirt that you can put on when you get into the freezing cold over are conditioned hotel especially if your hair is wet and you spent hours in the hot sun. This is also good to use for the plane on the way home.

Chapstick.. if you are proned to cold sores... the sun just helps bring them out. Especially if you add less sleep, drinking, partying. Wear protection on your lips.

15,30,45, protection. The first day or two wear high protection. I see it everyday.. burnt to a crisp and your vacation becomes uncomfortable. Slowly decrease the amount the longer you stay.

A beach bag with a zipper and nothing mesh or with holes. The sand in Cancun is brutal. Soooo thin and it gets everywhere including in your bag.

Umm Well I think thats all for now!

Enjoy

Bedroom slippers! I am amazed at how cold tile and marble is when it's airconditioned. I now have them on the top of my checklist.

I agree with the slippers idea! Post-its are good for leaving notes on your door for others, or on your friends (or family's) door. I take my little coffee pot and coffee, creamer, sweet & low.

We always take a nightlight.

It's dark in those rooms at night. It only takes once to find the coffee table with your shin on the way to the bathroom......
