my must have items on a holiday:
cheapo sunnies that can be tossed in the beach bag or the luggage without having to worry too much about scratching or breaking.
the kindle is an essential, not just for holidays, but everyday. i use it for my commutes to and from work, at the gym, eating lunch at my desk, pre-bedtime reading and whenever i have to wait longer than 5 minutes. it is so light and compact, i really don't know how i would survive without it. definitely one of the best presents i have received.
i have recently fallen in love with my camera all over again. i think it's almost 3 years old now and i still am yet to utilise all it's functions. it is so light and easy to carry around, making it perfect for holidays. although the photos aren't as nice as a DSLR, the ease of use and portability really make it perfect. plus it looks pretty hip too. i have been relying on my iphone camera way too much, which really is no comparison to a real camera.
the pouch is a new addition and my only souvenir from paris. so easy to use and actually holds quite a lot. and a bright colour always makes you happier, especially when you're on holiday.
