What to Pack When Traveling to Warm Climates

If you live anywhere east of Vancouver, you know that Canadian winters are harsh.  There is no way to candy coat it, come February we are all ready to pack up and fly south.  We’re done with the snow, the shoveling and the ice.  Tired of slippery roads and bundling up our kids in multiple layers.  We want sunshine, sandy beaches and drinks with little umbrellas in them. One would think that packing for a trip to the sunshine would be simple.  … [Read more...]
