Subject: What wouldn't you leave behind?
Hi Ziners - Now that we're 60ish, we definitely wouldn't leave our medication behind! Seriously, when we went on a big trip six years ago, a friend gave us a Mini-Maglight, and now we'd never leave it behind. It's been so useful on many trips.

We also bring a good book, and a plastic mickey of booze - good for cocktails in the room before going out for dinner. And a lightweight corkscrew, for when we buy local wine.

A friend recently mentioned that she and her husband always travel with a small blue and white check tablecloth for impromptu picnics - especially in Italy, where we are off to next weekend!
