You Lost My What?!!!

If you're one of those people who can pack everything they need for a 5 day beach vacation in one little carry-on then I bow to you and you may move on to the next article.  For the rest of us who require checking a huge bag because we can't leave home without crucial hair products and handbags, stay right here.  Do you feel a tightness in your chest and a pang of anxiety when you watch that big ol' bag of yours slowing chugging it's way down the conveyor belt? do you whisper a silent prayer: please, please Mr. Airport-Man, please don't loose it?  While there are no guarantees that your bag will end up where you do, you can always ease the suffering by planning ahead a little.  Picture yourself with no bag having just arrived at your hotel in the Bahamas.  Do you want to be sitting in the lobby in the clothes you wore on the flight flipping through magazines all afternoon?  or maybe you'll just pick up a swimsuit in the hotel gift shop, right ? Good luck.  There are five to choose from and they're all a size 2. Instead, picture yourself lounging by the pool working on your second fruity-coconuty-rum-thingy and not really caring any more what time your luggage will arrive.  Have a back-up plan: pack an extra swimsuit & some sunscreen in your handbag, tote, or whatever will be by your side for the entire flight. If the worst happens at least you'll be dressed for it.

I just saw this now...It's nice to be commemorated in an article online! Woop woop! And yes to everyone reading, it was ME who packed everything for a 5 day vacay in a carry-on. (Granted I didn't pack 5 purses, multiple necklaces, and more than 2 pairs of shoes...).

Nice job Naomi! Love these articles!


I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it for myself. AND she looked fabulous every day of vacation!

About Me

My photo
I didn’t dip my toe in an ocean until I turned 25 and my friend Sandy and I traveled to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. After that week, I was hooked. I loved being somewhere new; smelling the smells, tasting new food, seeing how other people lived. It energized me. As luck would have it, I landed a job that allowed me to travel all over the US and often to Canada. Being a sports event television producer, I was on the road all the time. That's when my love affair with travel began. Now, its 20 years later and still no one gets more “geeked up” about planning a vacation than I do. All I need is a destination and some travel companions and my fire is lit! I start delving into my favorite hotel sites, sifting through photos and reviews, comparing, contrasting -it’s like an addiction. The travel shows with tips and trends? I study them like a playbook. I LOVE doing the things most people hate doing before they go on vacation. Whether it be searching for a food tasting tour with a local or discovering a romantic B&B in the middle of New York - I’ve found it and I’ll share it with you. So....where should we go?
