I won't go over explaining listening, loving, thinking,wanting and needing since they are self explanatory. My three vacation essentials are: antibacterial gel/wipes, IPhone and bottled water.
I'm not sure if it's been discussed before but I'm kind of a Germophobe! Please tell me I'm not the only one... but when I check into a hotel I wipe down everything with antibacterial wipes/clorox wipes. The remote controls, light switches, counters, bath and toilet area.
IPhone mainly for taking pictures since I no longer carry a separate camera. I still have the tendency to want to bring a camera but I just can't bring everything with me.
I try and bring as much bottled water as I can if it's a vacation that I'm using my own car. I find the only time I drink a lot of soda is when I'm on vacation so I'm better off bringing bottled water with me.
Wishing everyone a wonderful and relaxing summer break!
