  1. I was slightly disappointed you didn’t include “Use it as a roof for a make-shift hotel room fort”, but then I saw #13, which is basically a sophisticated version of that. 🙂

    Love it! And I can’t even think of a new one too add, try as I might 🙂 I added one half-way through my trip and couldn’t believe I went that long without it!

    Hahaha, love #24. I was recently digging through a suitcase and found a pile of dirty laundry I had left there from the summer. Blech!

    No need for a sarong for me, but think this post is great. Will Retweet and Stumble!

    Brilliant! I heartily concur with all of these, and have one more to add. Recently we were couchsurfing with someone who’d hung a chin-up bar in the guest bedroom doorway. It was low enough that we banged our heads on it once or twice, until I tied a bright yellow sarong to the middle as a warning flag! No more skull-bashings. 🙂

    Great tips. I, too, agonize over a single pair of socks or whether or not to bring a jacket. A sarong will be in the next bag I pack now-you’ve convinced me! 🙂

    Believe it or not, I have never owned a sarong. They weren’t big in Vermont when I was growing up and I’m not the type to follow fashion trends, so I missed when they did become popular here. Seeing how flexible they are, though, now I’m going to have to buy one. Thanks for the tips!

    You can also use it as a cooler for short trips. Make a bag out of it, stuff in some drinks and ice.

    Nice tips! I’m already a believer in sarongs, but there are a few new tips here I think I can use.
