Went to Vegas….then flew home.
Spent 36 hours at home. Then left home to fly back to Vegas.
I think it’s the first time in years I haven’t checked baggage. I have never bothered with navigating the whole TSA ban on liquids, and then the TSA limits on liquids (less than 3 ounce of liquid per bottle, but everything needs to fit into a quart bag). It’s just been easier to check my baggage and not deal with that minutiae.
But when a family member is sick, I realized I don’t transport liquids (save for my bottle of contact lens solution). No makeup, no lotion, no special soaps, no perfume. I studied my makeup vanity for a minute earlier this week as I hurriedly packed–would I need anything in there? No.
Amazing–! All the liquids in my suitcase were items of vanity (including, technically, that bottle of contact lens solutino).
I traveled light. Just a few changes of clothes, and a few books. I could have fit it all in my laptop backpack.
Vanity takes up a lot of room and takes a lot of coordination.
