My camera!

Plus ultra-worn-in shoes and face cream. I love my hairdryer, but usually manage leave it at home and eventually come to terms with having flat, damp hair.

Minus clothes/boots/rucksacks ya know essential stuff.

A sturdy plastic bag and some strong boot laces you can't fathom how many times they come in handy. Oh and music, listening to stuff like Enya whilst travelling across magnificent landscapes is a must.

Assorted sizes of zip-lock plastic bags and an extra (empty) carry-on for bringing home treasures. Also, a small jeweler's tool kit and sewing kit.

I feel the same way twinkle...I always have my camera with me. (as an aside...has anyone noticed that since everyone has a digital camera/cell phone camera...etc...they no one ever see UFO's anymore? ;))

Ha! I'm not the only one with an obsession for zip-lock bags as travel tool! I always joke that I'm a "bag-lady" when I'm traveling, because I carry zip-lock bags of all sizes everywhere I go. But they're so handy - I use them as temporary mini garbages (until I can locate a trash can, which can be hard to find in some places), makeup bag (takes much less room than real makeup bags), I even put my passport in a zip-lock (my passport always looks brand new)!

As for something I cannot leave home without, it's definitely my camera. Pictures are the best souvenir!

You're not boring Wouter - you are just travel challenged at the moment.

Yeah, camera(s) are good. (And, I swear we saw UFOs the other night out our window - just too tired to take pix!)
