Post Curacao in Feb.
on: January 14, 2014, 20:16

I started to make a packing list for a week in Curacao next month, and it looked suspiciously like my packing list for Mitteleuropa last summer.

The similarity was enough to make me stop and consider whether I had thought this through properly. But the reality is that (a) most of the items on the list would be the same for any trip whatsoever, and (b) both trips would have mostly warm weather, but with some cold days.

This time I'm taking a real camera. I found that it was nearly impossible to use a phone-like device as a camera in sunlight, because I couldn't see the screen.

I'll post the list in a later message.

The iPad mini was necessary because I had a work-related conference with software that wouldn't run on the phone I had then.

There were only about two things I packed but never used: the sling bag, because I did no shopping and no day trips where I needed to carry lunch, and the travel router. I take the router when it's unclear whether a hotel has wireless or wired internet; this time the hotel's own description said wired, but it had been changed to wireless.
