for this month’s quick getaway to pondicherry, i travelled as lightly as possible. being that pondicherry is a coastal town that sees a lot of tourist traffic, most people there don’t pay much attention to how others are dressed. and since we didn’t visit any religious sites, there was no need to worry about staying covered or anything of the sort.
here’s what i carried with me —
3 old navy relaxed fit t-shirts; 1 t-shirt for sleeping
1 pair of shorts for walking around; 1 pair of shorts for lounging and sleeping
2 dresses for dinners
1 t-shirt; 1 pair of loose cotton trousers; 1 shawl [for travelling]
1 swimsuit; 1 coverup
undergarments for 3 days
1 pair of rainbow flip flops; 1 pair of sandals for the evenings
bag for storing dirty laundry
phone; kindle paperwhite; nikon d3100 + 18-55mm lens; phone charger
two paperbacks [slightly too ambitious, but better safe than sorry]
assorted toiletries; one pair of earrings; extra hair bands and pins; wet ones; eye drops
phase 10 card deck
things i left at home:
point-and-shoot camera [since cindy had hers]; extra chargers; laptop!
what are your must-haves for a trip? i am never without reading material, my camera, and a deck of cards to pass the time!
