Holiday packing

Volcano dust permitting next week I will be at conference in Canada before ten days on a very long overdue, and desperately needed, holiday. So I have to take some work gear with me (laptop, couple papers, smartish clothes) and clothes for 10 days holiday; I’m deluding myself (am quite good at this) and taking my running gear; might need a winter coat – need to check the weather report before going and I’m very aware that the holiday bit involves quite a lot of train travel so I don’t want too much luggage.

So I thought I’d let twitter and my blog readers help me out…what one thing do I need to take on holiday with me? What do you always take, or always take too many of, that I should leave behind? What am I most likely to forget?

Oh and if you’re going to be helpful, and I know all you lovely people will want to be 😉 what is the one thing/place/experience/food/pub that is unmissable in Toronto, Montreal, New York or Niagara? Help plan the itinerary, you know you want to. Thanks.

Never been to Canada & Smee away so can’t ask him about good places to visit. I always pack too much & then eliminate as much as possible by really bonestly asking myself what I would wear – also what is the worst that can happen? You might end up buying something you need but then on the plus side it is a reminder of a great trip, so, win win. Toiletries are useually provided so unless you have allergies, less to carry. A pair of comfy shoes is pretty important though!

Have just been in the attic to find my mahoosive case and it’s not there (has since been located at little sister’s house in Taunton – not worth the trip to go get it) so will have to be VERY disciplined. Work stuff first then just jeans and tops methinks…and my comfy shoes of course 😉
