    I sweat like a pig on those long walks so I need 2 sets for those days. I hate wearing dirty clothes so I tried to pack anything I would need, lol.

    The ring certainly has put a pinch on my travel cash, lol. I am packing twice the clothes I need because I am bringing half the cash I typically do when I travel. The good thing is my first 3 days of food are basically paid for at the Ritz. I have breakfast at Solanio included in my room rate and I also have a $100 bucks daily to spend on food/drinks.

    I do a mix of bundle wrapping and stacking. When you bundle wrap you are committing to unpacking on day one, otherwise you can't find what you want. I find depending on the clothes and material, that helps me decide which method. Space bags that you suck the air out of work great for men's board shorts. I have never quite gotten the hang of rolling to make it work. I usually pack, unpack and repack at least once.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    There's no method I use. Since I don't bring dressy clothes which I may otherwise just rent in Aruba, it doesn't concern me if stuff becomes wrinkled. I just try to fill every vacant space with something. For instance, in a fin could be a shoe filled up with socks. The largest item I brought last time was my wetsuit, which I did roll up and squeeze into a skinny nylon bag.

    We bought a rolling duffle for our snorkel gear, works great to stuff in flip flops and packaged snacks.
