Hola good people of Debbie’s forums!
Well, after reading your posts for months now and taking notes, I think I am ready for our trip to the D.R. next week. We’ve started taking the malaria drugs, and we are eating yogourt and taking the acidophilus. I’ve packed our school supplies for the children, and gifts for the maids, as well as t-shirts and baseball hats for bartenders etc. We have little dollies and cars for children we meet, and some Canada balls and frisbees. I’ve got the pepto, tums, gravol, immodium, polysporin and bandaids. Lets not forget the sunblock, lipbalm with spf, aloe gel, body butter (of course), insect repellant, shampoos and conditioners, body wash, body lotions, and other misc. toiletries. Won’t forget the perscription medications! I’ve packed a journal and pen (yes Lyndsey. . . I remembered! I just have to remember to write in it now! lol ) ;D I’ve got scented tealights and my thermal mugs. . . as well as palmolive dishcloths and I even managed to get some powdered sanitizer from the U-brew place! I’ve got clorox wipes and bounce fabric softener sheets and how could I forget the hand sanitizer!!! Of course I have all of this stuff in many ziplock baggies so nothing will spill! I have 2 colourful beach towels. We’ve got our U.S. money including lots of small bills for tipping, and I must remember to fill in our tourist cards! Oh yes. . . clothes!!! I’ve got too many sun dresses, and too many bathing suits with matching wraps and flipflops!(Baltobabe will be proud!) Sandals, shorts and tops, a light sweater (just in case), sunhats, oh yes. . . I just remembered the duct tape!! I’ve packed long pants for my husband, as well as too many nice tropical shirts with collars, and of course closed toe shoes. Let’s not forget his bathingsuits, and sandals and shorts and tops and shaving stuff. Oh yes. . . sunglasses and glasses for both of us. Then there is the camera and battery charger, and an extension cord that I have filed the polarized plug down. I have some pringles packed. Hmmm. . . maybe I should put a few granola bars in our carry on! I also have an eyeglass repair kit. We have our money belts and passports, and tickets. . . very important. . . don’t forget the tickets!!! I also have my hairdryer and travel iron. Oh my. . . it’s a good thing Air Canada has so much weight allowance. . . I don’t think I would make it on a charter!!! :o Oh yes, I also remembered to pack a beach bag and of course I didn’t put anything sharp in my carry on.
Well. . . what do you think??? Am I ready??? Have I forgotten anything??? Oh wait. . . don’t tell me. . … of course. . . I have my great attitude all ready to have a wonderful time!!! ;D ;D ;D
Can you think of anything else???
Cat ;D ;D
p.s. I forgot to mention the clothesline and clothespins and facecloths, and cipro. . . just in case!
