Obsessive Packing Disorder: What Not to Pack for a Family Holiday

As a young twenty something I cavorted around the world with a back pack loaded with nothing more than the bare essentials, a swim suit, a sarong, thongs, a change of clothes, shampoo, tooth brush and paste, the Lonely Planet and my mate Gaffa.  It didn’t start out that way of course.
