It has been 5 grueling months since the last time I was off island (short day trips to neighboring islands not included). The day I have been looking forward to for what seems to be forever is finally here. This island girl is leaving on a jet plane. Destination: Washington DC.
It is a known fact that I dress better when abroad and so packing is the highlight of my pre-travel routine. But since I am also traveling by myself with no husband to drag my heavy suitcases for me, I decided as a courtesy to my poor back to pack light or as light as I can.
