I consider myself an international travel expert. My journeys have taken me from Beijing to Morocco. So when I make appearances, people often ask me for advice. I am quick to share my travel expertise, and when it comes to packing, I consider myself an expert. But on a recent trip to Namibia, I failed to heed my own advice.
My husband and I were asking ourselves this exact question last week as we were prepping for our first weekend away from home with our 4-month-old infant. Because I can have my OCD moments, I decided that we should bring everything and then figure out what we didn't need, versus taking nothing and learning the hard way.
