Now for the Big Question: What Should I Take?

Hello again dear reader(s),

With less than a week to go before I head off to Spain I thought I would share with you some things I think are important to consider as you finalize your packing list. Now, I must stress that the items I list below are only suggestions. Seriously, I’m a blogger, not your mother. Take these things, don’t take them, it’s all the same to me; I can rest easy knowing that I have done all that I can to guide you by creating this post in the first place.

            Now, my first ultimate goal in creating this list is to garner enthusiastic reactions in my reader(s) such as “Wow! I never thought of taking that before! This girl is a genius; an absolute genius, I say!”, but I understand reality is a little bit different than my fantasies of being approached by high profile magazines asking me to become their travel writer because of a 15 item list I wrote for a student blog. Because of this division between fantasy and reality I have decided that my second ultimate goal in creating this list is to help, at the very least, one person (seriously, just one) consider packing an item they hadn’t previously considered (especially one that will make packing/living in a new place a bit easier).

            So, without any further ado, take a look at the following photo gallery and see the 15 items I will be taking with me on my grand international journey and think you should too (don't forget to hover over the images to see a short description of everything):

<p>I&#39;m a third year college student excited about seeing everything this amazing planet has to offer. Originally from Oregon, I&#39;ve slowly been finding my place in the world through travels throughout North America, China, and now Europe! I hope this blog offers advice, inspiration, and a bit of humor for any current and future travelers.</p>
