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

Hello! For my 2017 travel, I’ve been trying to stock up on currency bit-by-bit, but the Canadian dollar is presently being brutalized in the financial markets, with both the pound and euro rising about 10 cents against the poor loonie in the last month. Please send your favourite cheap eats in Edinburgh, London, and Portugal to Otherwise, I may starve. But probably won’t. Thanks for reading The Packing List, have a great week!

Travel news you can use

Nifty finds

  • Royal Jordanian Airlines made a profoundly moving anti-discrimination ad and I can’t stop thinking about it.
  • Geraldine DeRuiter is a wonderful traveler, blogger, and travel blogger who I came to know when she was diagnosed with a brain tumour and wrote a series of compelling and hilarious posts about it. Now she has memoir out about her life in travel and I’m looking forward to reading it. (This isn’t #sponcon, I just really like her writing.)
  • Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings is a smart fella and a funny fella.
