Friday Five - All that you can't leave behind

What are the five things you simply must have when you are away from home? And why? Any history or goofy things, or stories?

1. Some means of telling the time. It could be a cellphone, watch, sundial, etc. Even if my final destination involves lots of lazing about, not bothering with the time . . . I MUST know what time it is when I'm en route (plane, train, auto, etc). I wouldn't want to miss any connections!

2. My camera. I love taking pictures. Though - in a pinch - my cellphone works for that, too.

3. Drugs. Legal ones for allergies and asthma. I've had too many close calls resulting in trips to the ER not to have them with me.

4. A book. Or a few. And I have this habit of buying a book at the airport if I'm flying, even if I already have one with me. I read so quickly, I've got to keep something on hand.

5. Music for listening. Went from walkman to discman to iPod. For as long as I can remember, music has been a must-have for me on any trip. Family trip? Airplanes? Cruise ship? Road trip - good music for the car is a MUST.

Omigosh, I totally didn't have a timepiece in London and it was KILLING me! I kept having to ask storekeepers for the time to make sure I wasn't missing my evening's plans! ACK!

Also, I'm totally there on 2-4! Although 'legal' is just a detail. (ha!)

Sunday fo' sho' let's bus-pool and blue bottle it! Let's try to leave by 9:45 this time?? haha!

Some people seem to be annoyed when I start singing a song at the airport, I suppose I should join the band wagon and get an iPod.
