See my post on March 19, 2006 (search vacationqn) for my tip on mugs. My second favorite thing to take on vacation to a big resort is..... a floatie. The simple, bubble, bright colored floaties I find inexpensive at Walmart ($5). It fits fine in your luggage. You can take your time blowing it up when you get there.... or find a nice hunk of man to do it for you =)... then float around all day, every day, even to the "float up" bar... with your 32 oz insulated mug, of course. Then leave it with a new friend you meet there. ONLY RULE, it must be passed on when they leave. Happy vacationing!
