Make sure you’re ready to vacay in comfort!
The “Essentials” Bag
The perfect escape must have all three…
by Elsie Davis
So you’re ready for a vacation? Great. Deciding where to go is always tough. Let’s see, the Caribbean, the Caribbean, or the Caribbean. Just kidding. Alaska and Australia were incredible and I have a few places yet to see on my bucket list.
You’ve booked the trip, packed your suitcase and you’re ready to relax. Perfect? Not yet. Make sure you have an “essentials” bag, a must have for any fantastic vacation.
So what’s in an “essentials” bag? 1) The perfect book, or two, or three. 2) The perfect treats. 3) The perfect wine (or beverage of choice).
For me, the perfect “essentials” bag would include: A Sweet Romance like Annie Seaton’s Australian Bondi Beach series, dark chocolate, and Hope’s End Red Blend wine from Australia. (Maybe I should be going to Australia again) If I really want to go crazy, I need to throw in cheese and crackers, after all, what’s wine time without cheese and crackers.
It doesn’t matter where you are, if you have an “essentials” bag, you can be happy. You can forget a dynamite pair of shorts, or your deodorant, or even your eighth pair of shoes, but don’t forget your “essentials. ” No vacation is complete without the proper tools of relaxation.
I can remember lots of vacations that most people would consider a washout, sun wasn’t shining, torrential rains, cancelled tours, brochures more hype than reality, hotels worse than a nightmare, but it always worked out if I had my “essentials” because I could make myself happy. And yes, even the nightmare hotel – the wine helped a lot with that one, not going to lie, and I didn’t stick around long enough to worry about anything else.
So what’s in you bag?
