Are you someone that packs 30 minutes before walking out the door or someone that starts packing two weeks before you leave for your dream trip?
Packing can often be a stress inducing anxiety filled thing that everyone must do before leaving for your trip (unless you just want to go with the clothes you have on!). That being said, if you have a few practical packing tips you can discover that it can be a peace filled thing that makes you look forward to where you are going rather than makes you worry about what could you be going without. We hope that these tips help...
1. A Packing List - You can find a packing list anywhere on the internet specific to your location. Have a check list will give you peace of mind that you are not forgetting the essentials.
2. Rolling not folding - Rolling your clothes will save room and wrinkles. When you unroll your clothes you'll find them ready to wear immediately rather than wishing you had an iron to get out all of the wrinkles that came with travel.
3. Packing light - We encourage packing light for multiple reasons. This allows you to be more mobile and pay less on baggage fees. If you have room in your luggage you'll be able to return with more souvenirs.
4. Lavender Sheets - These have been a life saver! Place a few laundry sheets throughout your clothing to make them have a fresh clean smell when you get them out.
We hope this helps for your next trip!

You read that correctly. We had traveled domestically with our son for the past two years, but we thought we had met our match when we booked a trip to fly from Texas to Malaysia. This trip would include a sixteen hour flight from Houston to Taipei followed by a five hour skip and jump to Kuala Lumpur. The thought of doing this TWICE in six weeks with our two year old sounded daunting. As we verbally vented to our friends of what we were coming up with to entertain him and the thoughts we were having of how to get him to fall asleep we were introduced by a friend to the Fly Tot.
The Fly Tot is a new product that has been developed in the last couple of years specifically designed for toddlers to be able to fall asleep on airplanes. What is is is an inflatable cushion that fills the space between the seat bottom and the seat back in front of you. It includes a foot pump to fill it with air and does not take more than three minutes to fill up with air.
Our flight left IAH at 12:40 AM, and our little extrovert was wide awake up until takeoff. My wife and I got the Fly Tot out, pumped it up, layed his blanket on it, and told him this is his bed. See picture below. To our delight he woke up 11 hours later ready for breakfast. We will NOT travel without this, and we currently are letting friends borrow it as they travel to Hong Kong with their toddler. Fly Tot thank you from parents everywhere.

Uganda is a wild ride waiting to happen. There’s adventure around every corner and endless opportunities to dive in deep to the culture. After working right off the Nile River for 6 years, I have found a thing or two to feed my need for adventure.
