I've only left the country once. I was 16 when I took a trip to Mexico with my church youth group. It was a wonderful experience and one I have always hoped to repeat. International travel, however, hasn't been in the cards for the last 15 years.
Next year, that changes.
In February, our church is sending us on a trip to Israel. This is a dream come true. There will be lots of future blog posts about Israel. In July, our youth group is headed to Honduras on a mission trip. I'm hoping to use some of this Spanish I am learning.
Anywho, with this month's focus on learning, I wanted to share the brilliant tip that my friend Kristi shared with me. It has simplified my packing plans for both trips.
Pick a color scheme. Bring separates within that color scheme. Then everything can be mixed and matched. Add a few bright colored scarves and voila! Maybe that is common sense to you, but it never even occurred to me. If I'd thought of it when we went to Seattle, my suitcase might have weighed less. *wink*
Any travel tips to share? I have lots to learn.
