In a perfect world, all electronics would use a universal adaptor/cord (the EU is moving in this direction with the mandatory cellphone charger standard). In reality, as I survey the pile of cords for the things I can’t leave home without, I am overwhelmed. Of course, this trip is a bit unusual in that I will be spending much of it in places where I might not easily find replacements, so there are some redundancies. Nonetheless, if I were in charge (pun intended), there would be one all purpose cord, the US would go metric and there would be peace on earth. Just saying.
A quick (virtual) trip to Flight001 solved my organizational dilemmas. Luckily, I always pack at least 48 hours ahead, so I have time for those last minute purchases. A shout out to my friend and fellow photographer Sue is warranted, as I waited too long to realize I didn’t have a back up battery for my camera. Sue is an immensely talented newborn, child and family photographer. Check out her work: Sue Ganz Photography. Live and learn and give thanks for friends!
