trips and books and new follower

First I need to thank Tabitha from Wandering Java Lover for becoming my 7th follower. She is a Canadian blogger that loves Starbucks and Books. My kind of girl!!! :)  Please check out her blog!

By this time tomorrow, I will be up in the air flying somewhere over the Florida Keys on my way to Cancun Mexico for the week. 

My schedule today is crazy. I am working until 4:30 pm then I have an spa appointment for a pedicure (love pedicures!) and for some waxing (must look good in that bathing suit!). Then I need to pack for Bidou and I.    

Last night my hairdresser (yes... I couldn't go to Cancun with my roots showing!) asked me what kind of packer I was. Then it got me thinking about the stuff I do bring on trips. I think I bring just enough in clothes and shoes. I usually pack one suitcase for Bidou and I plus we have our carry-ons.  That's not so bad... right?? However, the item that I do bring to many of is books. For some reason, I am always afraid that I will run out of stuff to read.  Last summer when travelling to Key West for the month of August, I packed 12 books but only read 5 of them. Go figure!!

I usually read books on my mini i-pad but when travelling to Mexico, I love to bring real books. I find it is easier for reading at the beach or near the pool.

The following is a picture of the books that I am bringing on this trip.  My priority is to finish The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I hopefully to read another!! :)

grrrr... I can't get this picture to rotate... sorry people!!

What do you over pack when travelling on a vacation???

I will be taking a break from this blog next week but will be back in full force on December 9th.  Hope you all have a great week! :)


  1. let me know about the book thief...i heard it's really good and i think they're making it into a movie?

    have fun on your trip!

    Vodka and Soda

  2. I hope you have a great trip, even if I'm jealous and I'll miss you around here! :) I love my Kindle but there is nothing like the satisfaction of turning an actual page in a book. :)

  3. Awww, schucks! Thanks! I used to over pack books but I have got that under control bringing my Kobo e-reader. I usually pack one real book or magazine for taking off/landing time or just in case. lol I ALWAYS, over pack shoes! Hope you have a fabulous time. :)

  4. Ah, I'm so behind! You must be living it up in Mexico now! Woot woot! Enjoy!!
