The Amazing Packing Race!
Recently I celebrated my 2 year anniversary of my Amazing Race experience with my friend Marisa! I cannot believe it has already been 2 years, time flies! I reminisced on all of the fun times and friends that I made. Really, they are like my second family even though we don't see or talk to each other everyday. We know we can always count on each other if we ever need anything. I thought about how hilarious the night before we left was. Marisa came over to my house and we were going through our backpacks, making sure we had everything. I eliminated a few little items I thought I could live without. Marisa on the other hand pretty much eliminated an entire 2nd backpack. haha! She packed hair volumizer, Gucci perfume, a hair straightener, hairspray, tons of makeup... I don't know what else but it looked like she thought we were going to be staying in five star hotels every night! Along the way I made mental notes on what I would do differently if I got the chance to do it again. So here is my list!
•water bladder - we went through so many bottles of water, it would have been so much easier to fill up this big pack! Also, it doesn't take up as much room as a water bottle.
• Woolite packets - You can get pretty smelly while racing! These travel size Woolite packets are perfect for washing clothes (especially underwear!) when you are fortunate enough to be staying in a hotel!
Those are just a few of the things I can think of right now. You really just need to know how to pack light, while also packing for ALL weather conditions! Happy Racing! :)
