I love travelling but I know I will want to bring some goodies back home and with the airlines clamping down on how much luggage you can take with you combined with the fact that I hate carrying too much luggage with me I have started travelling as light as possible.
Well I like to travel to my destination as light as possible leaving me loads of scope for purchases to bring back home!
I love trying new foods when I travel however sometimes you may need a little help, a cup of coffee before you track down a great local cafe, some chili spices in advance of finding that fantastic local restaurant everyone talks about.
I like to take a few condiments with me in case of emergency however a bottle of sauce or a jar of coffee would weigh far too much to be on my packing list. Solution:-
Take a plastic or other lightweight carrier filling it with a couple of sachets of instant coffee, your favourite sweetener and other must haves.
These little portions will just keep you calm whilst you get used to the local products - you will usually find most things abroad even if they differ slightly!
What would you put in your little plastic pouch? Leave a comment below - maybe it will turn out to be a reminder to someone else to take with them.
