    Thanks for the weather reports. I've packed accordingly. :thumbsup2



    I packed last night and only had to deal with carry-on packing tonight. :rolleyes1

    You want airline food? Really? I won't promise but I'll think about it.



    Thank you. With all these wishes, I'm sure to have a great and safe trip. :goodvibes

    Nearly time to go and what's in my bag?




    It's my final night and I finished my packing today.

    There's been a bit of chatter on one of the Aussie threads around packing; and given that I detailed my suitcase contents there, I thought I might as well post it here as well. Afterall, this is meant to be my PTR.

    Yes, I remembered that I wouldn't bother too much about my suitcase but rather the contents....and all that about what you might or might not be here to read.

    But still....there seemed to be some value in listing out an example of suitcase packing.

    Here's what's in my bag:

    • 2 pairs of pants (one jeans, one chino)
    • 3 tops
    • 1 black singlet (for layering purposes. I don't know if I'll use it but I thought I'd take one anyway)
    • 1 good outfit to wear for a night out (we've booked in to see a jazz artist)
    • 1 pair of PJs
    • 1 exercise t-shirt and shorts (there is a good gym on the hotel we stay at and I do take the opportunity to work out for an hour or so)
    • 2 sweaters, one short sleeve, one long sleeve for layering
    • Trench coat (again, for layering and I'll take the trench on board with me)
    • 9 days worth of undies and socks.
    • Crocs (and I seriously thought of not bringing this but it is good to use around the hotel for when I want to walk about)

    I wear a very good/dressy track suit on the plane. I can use this for lounging around in the hotel if I want. I'm wearing my sketchers. I want to buy shoes on this trip...no point bringing extra.

    I suspect that I've overpacked but there is *just* enough clothes there for me to last the 8 days without having to wash.

    I stood on the scales with my packed bag. I'm up to about 8 kilos, including the bag. Lots of room to come home with stuff. :thumbsup2

    Over packed? That sounds like what I would take for a weekend jaunt! Plus I'm not sure of what half that stuff is! Talk about language barrier! :lmao: Are you planning on doing laundry at my house? :rotfl: Whatever, I can't wait to see you which will now be tomorrow! :yay:

    Have a good flight!

    Really? Hmmm....looks like I'm learning American from you tomorrow! :lmao:

    And no. I think I might do laundry in San francisco.

    And I thought the list was quite Americanised with your 'sweaters' and 'chinos' :lmao:


    You sound a bit like me - I think that sounds like plenty enough clothes! I can't understand why people think they need to pack their whole wardrobes for a week away :rotfl: And the only shoes I ever take are hiking boots (wear them on the plane to save on space in the case), ballet flats (in case we go somewhere nice) and thongs (or flip-flops for the sake of the Americans here :rotfl2:).

    My bag checked in a little over 11 kg on the way over. I had a few Tim Tams in the bag...and non clothing extras.



    Hi Twinnie! Thanks. I'm in NorCal now and caught up with DH today.



    You'll have to wait for the Trip Report. :rolleyes1




    Thanks! Hope to catch up with you when I return.

    With all the catching up we did I totally forgot to ask you what the heck "chinos" are and what is a singlet! :rotfl:

    :wave2: Yes, thanks. Having a great time. But I've only got 2 more days and then I head home.


    Okay. As I've been wandering around the US shops this week, I can translate this.

    Chinos = Khaki pants
    Singlet = Camisole

    My guesses were that chinos were capris and the singlet was a tank top, so I was way off!

    Hope you're having a wonderful time, PIO, can't wait til you can continue this TR, but hate that it means your vacation will be over.
