How to Pack Smartly on a trip

Packing is so important to a successful and enjoyable trip. When done correctly, you can use carry-on luggage only and have plenty of clothes to wear. By using the proper types of clothing, you can have lightweight, wrinkle free clothing that packs into a small suitcase. Taking only 3-4 outfits means you wash your clothes in the bathroom sink at your hotel and hang them to dry overnight.

Watch my YouTube video below on how to do this and stop lugging endless suitcases with you on your trip. Travel smart not heavy!

Gelato in Italy

Italy is the home of gelato. What is gelato? The italian-English dictionary translates it as ice cream but it is NOT ice cream. Gelato has less calories, more flavor, and is creamier. It is best served from a artisan gelateria where the owner has a passion for making great gelato. It is never made quickly, puffed up high with air. It should always be served in metal, not plastic, bins.

Watch the video below on my YouTube channel about gelato and hear what some Italians say about this great treat:
