The Packing List #35 – November 27, 2016 – Too Many Travel Gift Ideas

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

Hello! I hope my American friends enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving break, including loads of turkey and all the fixins’. For the rest of the world, I hope you’ve been enjoying(?) Black Friday, which is somehow now a thing, despite the fact most of us just went about our days normally.

In blog news, I posted something new about how I spent my last day in London on a DIY craft beer tour. All part of my ongoing quest to clear the draft queue on the blog. Thanks for reading The Packing List, have a great week!
