Must have Monday!

Every Monday I’ll post what I think are “must have’s” when I travel.  These are the things I wouldn’t leave home without.  Maybe you’ll find something on my list that you’ve never thought to bring and think it’s a good idea or maybe you’ll have something on your list that we never thought of.

June 4, 2018 –  a small notebook – for me, this one of the things on the top of my list for a variety of reasons –  I guess the first being I can’t remember a damn thing!!! Must be my age, but for whatever the reason – trips kind of mesh together – when was I there, what did I do, what did I like, what didn’t I like.  I started doing this long before I became a travel agent.

When you cruise as much as we do, you tend to re-visit some of the ports – if I’ve hit on something either really good or really bad and either want to do it again or never want to do it again – I write it down!  I would never have remembered where the home of the Pina Colada was if I never wrote it down.  Sure, I have pictures of me in front of the sign (actually have a few taken from different visits).  And I have pictures of some of my guests taken in front of the same sign when I recommend the place to them.


Have you ever taken a photo and then for the life of you can’t remember when or where it was.  This little book has saved me from that.  I don’t buy a new book every time I travel – I just put the first date and the last date on the cover and refer back to it when I need to.

I don’t just use for big trips – I take it with me on the weekend get-aways and road trips as well.
