Mom and I are off to Spain on Friday to visit our brother Dan! My new camera will make it more challenging to be a secretive tourist but the pictures will be well worth it. In choosing a camera bag last week, I couldn’t commit to anything expensive yet so at just $10, this one will serve the purpose perfectly for this trip. A comfortable shoe, breathable clothes and minimal jewelry are my travel staples along with extra sunscreen and water. We used the Top 10 book last year in Istanbul and it was perfect because it lists the Top 10s of everything in the city (museums, restaurants, neighborhoods) with pull out maps but is also slim enough to fit in any bag which make them the perfect secretive tourist companion. The weather forecast calls for high 70s and clear skies throughout the majority of our trip and is just what the doctor ordered after this brutal winter.
