Try some of these travel tips this summer...
Ever need an ice bucket when you are on vacation? Ever tried to pack one in your luggage? How about using an inflatable one instead? They pack flat, you can blow it up and fill with ice and use it to keep just about anything cool for a while.
Uses for contact lens cases are plenty. I've used them for moisturizer, antibacterial cream, aspirin, make-up foundation and hair gel...just to name a few. Use a permanent marker so you know what is in each one! And the nice part...they don't take up much room and can be packed in your carry-on as they hold less than three ounces.
I've always packed a shawl...to use as a make-shift blanket, skirt, pillow, shoulder covering or back rest.
Want to find a great souvenir for a woman? Look for a scarf from the region.
Will you be washing and drying your clothes? If you pack a couple of balloons, you can blow them up and put them in your pants, shorts, shirt or skirt to cut down on the drying time.
