The Bite-sized Travel Packing List is an email newsletter about travel, planning, packing, nifty finds & more! Click here to subscribe

Hello! Spring, spring, what a thing! If it would just arrive already so I could pack away my winter coat. Over on Bite-sized Travel, I had a busy week. First, I wrote about touring Port-au-Prince to see some of the remaining earthquake damage – five years later – as well as the rebuilt central market, a bright and hopeful example of progress in Haiti. Then, I wrote a lengthy product review of a travel sweatshirt I ordered through a Kickstarter … with mixed results. Thanks for reading The Packing List!
