Three things? Well, only if my homemade travel first aid kit counts as one item! Seriously, I can and will save your life with it. ;) I go nowhere without it, even to the store. You never know... I could travel with just my purse and be fine.


multitool/pocket knife (which has gotten through more than one international airport -- )
munchies, which can make for great bribes when travelling in a group

It truly makes me cry how many people are choosing their phone. I have aged myself out of this generation's travel culture, clearly. I thought travel was a way to disconnect from the things you knew to experience life in a new way...Now it's just a really long trip to the mall. I am aghast at how many travellers are wandering around with their toploaders in a new city not looking around because they are so focussed on remote Tetris and what their BFF had for lunch.

Oh, I expect to take a hit for that...But it's how I feel.

I assume passport and money are included, so:

1. Multitool

2. Compass

3. 16 Gig IPod.

Number Three was just so you could smugly point and mock...Aren't I a considerate aged, decrepit, out of touch curmudgeon?

3. It's a toss up between a camera and a journal. I lean towards journal, cuz I can sketch in there too.

Number 4 would have been "a watch" because apparently people are foregoing them in favour of their phones...yet are unable to see the time on their phones(at a guess, I would say that Tetris obscures the time). I answer "Que hora es" about five times a day.
