  • pay to have laundry done
  • bring a light jacket (for inside)
  • carry on only (interchangeable clothes)
  • seek out brand new experiences (Elephant Reserve)
  • find and hoard old childhood favorites

17:58 - Gail's romanticized return destinations:

  • don't be sick while there (Lake Como, Italy)
  • for food! (Singapore)
  • get a rialita (Hawaii)
  • eat more localised comfort food, that aren't available elsewhere (Cusco, Peru <- Alpaca, Llama, etc)

In general, be more adventurous with food eating and focus on local tastes that are difficult to find back home - Experiment!
