Three Essential Travel Items

Whenever I travel there are three items which I have found to be the most useful. These items are versatile and you can pack them into any size bag.

Frisbee

This circular piece of plastic is not only a social butterfly, it can double as a seat, plate or a security shield in your bag. I like to place it in the front of my daypack to act as a shield to protect the items inside from pushy crowds. Oh, and of course, it can be used to share a game with new friends.

Umbrella

Traditionally used to protect you from rain, but the umbrella can double as a sunshade and more creatively as a weapon. I have always carried an umbrella with me, no matter what the season. Especially with the unseasonable weather around the globe right now. Fortunately, I have not yet had to employ the umbrella’s defensive capabilities yet.

Photo of the Month: Waves of Mykonos

Mykonos, also known as the island of wind, and last summer was no exception.  It was my first trip to Greece and I was imagining perfect weather, golden beaches and warm waters. Well two out of the three were not bad.  Mother Nature had decided that she would send strong winds as well.  However, it does make for a great photo this month as the waves crash up against the sea wall of Little Venice providing a new perspective to the famous windmills of Mykonos. Watch you step!
