All 5 of this month’s tips were provided by Mobal Member, Sally Williams
1. How to pack efficiently
Pack in threes: one on, one clean and one dirty.
2. A quick test to see if you’ve packed too much
A person can live for a month in a carry-on. Any one should be able to lift their suit case over their head and walk around a block or up stairs without using the wheels.
3. A short cut to washing clothes on the go
Wash your clothes while in the shower. A little foot stomping does wonders.
4. How to avoid looking like you’re carry anything worth stealing
In addition to no fanny packs, no vests with multiple pockets and no around-the-neck passport holders. (You can get pulled down with them and they are easy to snip. Same with back packs with loops ) Wear a waist money belt inside your clothing. Carry your sweater and water in a local plastic bag you buy or get at a local market. I sometimes carry an envelope with cash small amounts to use in markets or on the buses.
5. Who you should avoid opening your hotel door to
Don’t answer a hotel room door for a “policeman” plumber, etc. Call the desk to see if they sent someone.
