Hello! September has arrived! There’s a distinct chill in the air, which means the summer is over for most of us. For me, it means the countdown has started for my next big adventure, the Caminho Portugues. This will be my second Camino, but my first visit to Portugal, so I’m excited to get packed and get going. Thanks for reading The Packing List, have a great week!

 Planning your next trip

  • According to a survey by The Irish TimesGiant’s Causeway and the Mona Lisa are among the worst tourist destinations in the world.
  • Everything else I saw this week is fall getaway planning, but I’m not ready to look at changing autumnal leaves yet.

Packing lists and tips

  • The Washington Post says that backpacks are making a comeback. This is news to me, as I’ve been traveling almost exclusively with one for about 10 years.
  • few weeks ago, we learned of a hero with his face printed on his luggage. Great news, now I have a source. UK-based Firebox will print your face on a luggage cover for your rolling suitcase.
    • I checked out the process and it’s easy and (relatively) affordable. 3 sizes, ranging in price from £19.99 to £29.99.
    • Upload a photo and you’re good to go. I tried it out and got a preview of what I’d look like on luggage.
