Suitcase Necessities.

Ladies and Gentlemen, 

I need to admit something to you...

I OVER pack. Last month when I went to Uganda, I brought enough medication, bug spray, and t-shirts to travel the entire continent of Africa. However, I have learned from my mistakes and from my overly full suitcase. You could get by with out some of the extras I brought. Here are a few reasons it is critical not to bring your entire bedroom:

1. Less room for souvenirs.

2. You will end up not using half of it.

3. You WILL go broke trying to pack and have no money for activities.

Now that we have covered why this is necessary, take a glance at this list of what you really should bring:

1. Bug Spray

2. Tissues: Not all countries have toilet paper, bring something to take care of that. You do not need to buy the entire isle though.

3. Outlet Adapter

4. Journal/ Bible/ Pen

5. Snacks

6. Short sleeve shirts

7. Long sleeve shirts

8. Easy to carry water bottle

9. Long Pants

10. A pair of shorts

11. Pajamas

12. Undergarments

13. Hair Brush

14. Soap

15. Shampoo/ Conditioner

16. A towel

17. Advil/ Cold Medication/ Stomach medication/ Any Prescriptions

18. PASSPORT/ ID/ PLANE TICKET

19. DOUBLE CHECK NUMBER 18

20. Jacket

21. Backpack or fanny pack

22. Face wipes

23. More wipes

24. Hand sanitizer 

25. Anti-itch cream

26. Deodorant

27. Sunscreen

28. Laundry detergent

--OK, you are ready. Jesus love you, have fun.
