I already called my banks. I emptied my wallet.
I selected my travel outfit: a white camisole with gauzy white tuxedo style shirt (long sleeved), fake leather cropped black jacket (washable), lightweight black pants, silk scarf and Velcro “Mary Jane” style sneakers.
I will begin in this outfit Thursday a.m. when my family drives to the suburbs of Baltimore to have breakfast with my college roommate. We need to be in DC by noon to head to Dulles for my afternoon flight to Paris.
My traveling companion and I arrive at CDG in Paris at about 6 a.m. Friday, which will be midnight our time. Our plane to Djibouti leaves in the middle of the night Paris time so it’s possible I will wear this outfit for more than 48 hours.
So what’s in the current draft of my suitcase?
Two pairs underwear
More meal bars
More hand sanitizer
Underpants (many of which I will toss when dirty)
Ankle length skirt
Khakis with lots of pockets
5 relatively lightweight long sleeve shirts
