A Necessity on a Trip

What is something you always pack on a trip?

Something I always pack on a trip (or wherever I go, even in town) is my Kindle. I am a voracious reader and this easy, portable device is my constant companion wherever I go. I can carry it on a plane and it takes up little space and I can read throughout my flight. I can also read when I have down time at my destination, or if I’m relaxing at my destination if it’s a relaxing sort of place. I take it with me in town especially when I go to doctor’s appointments since most of my doctos are never on time and I can spend the time reading and doing something constructive while I wait for the ill-prepared doctor to get around to seeing me. Last week I waited for 1 1/2 hours for a doctor and read the entire time (and then walked out). My kindle is the best thing that ever happened to books. I have a variety of books on it and can decide which of the many books I want to read and can switch between books if I want. I won’t leave home without it.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
