Packing 20/20

At the end of a trip I like to look back over what I packed and makes notes for what I would have done differently. The most important thing I packed was seasickness medication. Everyone on our boat was taking something, and I am happy to report that no one on our ship suffered from seasickness. Remedies spanned the gamut from acupressure bands to seasick pills and patches, and they all seemed to work. We were also lucky as far as the weather conditions went. For the most part I felt my packing for this trip was pretty spot on. I brought 2 swimsuits, a few wrinkle resistant skirts, a couple of tank tops, a rain jacket, good walking shoes (I love my Chaco sandals!), 2 pairs of shorts, a pair of long, lightweight pants, a few casual dresses and a zip up fleece jacket.
The one thing that I really wished I would have had was a pair of flip flops just to wear on the boat. Almost all our landings throughout the trip were wet landings, and even though I had sandals, the straps were always wet when I put them on, and had I had a pair of shoes just for the boat my other shoes would have had a better chance to dry. This was nothing major, but the only thing I could really think of.
