Near Perfect Packers
Initially Gord and I thought we would have a significant list of items that we should have left behind in Canada, but after some contemplation we have come the conclusion that we are actually deserving of the title,“Near Perfect Packers”.
If you missed our post on “What We Packed in Our Suitcases” and would like to read it now click here.
As we packed up for our move from Poneloya to Leon we decided to leave a few things in storage with Carlos at Hostal El Pulpo. Although our warm weather clothing will come in handy once we head up to the mountains, we definitely don’t need jeans and hoodies here in Leon. Our linens will be used again when we get a place of our own, but for now, they too are in storage. We aren’t sure when we’ll be using our snorkel equipment but are still happy we packed our masks and snorkels.
The one and only thing we figure we should have left behind was the misting system we purchased online before we left. It’ll be great to have once we get settled into a place of our own, but seeing how that won’t be for awhile to save on weight and space in our luggage we should have left it behind.
As surprising as it may seem there isn’t any one particular thing or things that we didn’t pack in our suitcases that we feel we should have. A couple of things that would be nice to have include a sharp kitchen knife, my Spanish workbook, our bathroom scales (so we know when to lay off the gallo pinto and cerveza) and bug spray with deat.
All in all we are patting ourselves on the back for a packing job well done!
