Mmm.... I'm thinking tape, the thick kind... it can temporarly fix anything, from your back pack to a rip in your pants, if your sandals suddelny break while hiking...

I dunno... it's just a thought...

Make sure you have all your personal hygine items. i'm the worst when it comes to remembering my contact case or something little like that. also, when you go from place to place, double check that you have everything. i think i forgot my shampoo at 3 different hostels when i went to europe.
but that could just be because i was rushing to get out in a hungover stupor trying to check out before the hostel charged extra. don't be like the drunks! we end up paying for it in lost socks and forgotten soaps.
We are not here for ourselves alone

I was mentally packing months in advance and then physically, a few weeks in advance. Damned if I forgot something!!

On the other hand, in Ireland, we did wish we would have brought a tealight or two. But we didn't forget.
