Yes, it’s 3 days to go before I take off from Malaga airport, Spain for Tel Aviv, Israel and I haven’t packed yet !!  Wanna help ? I need it !!  Hey, I’m a single guy on my own with hands that love to do their own thing !! And I haven’t a clue what to take or where to begin. Heeeeeeelp !!

Okay ! Open suitcase and in jumps Sonic my cat !! Great ! Packed ! Done !

Nope ! He’s outta here ! No help for me at all !!

I may need a sweater or two as it might be cold in Jerusalem in the evenings. It could rain !! Ah ! There’s a corner in the suitcase for boots and shoes ! Ooops ! Slight problem ! Damn thing won’t close !!

  1. A toothbrush, an extra t-shirt, a pair of clean undies and an extra hat
    – something else needed, I do not think so… 😀 😀

  2. I thought single guys only needed and extra pair of underwear and a pair of socks. Although, one Sonic would make going through security a lot more interesting. 8). Have fun!!

  5. Over the years I have made a list of everything that I need. At the very least, don’t forget your passport like a friend of mine did. She missed her whole trip.

    • Hi Georgia 😀
      Good point !! My passport will be velcroed to my forehead. Then I’ll be searching my bags looking for it !! 😉
      I have a local friend’s wife who makes lists, lists of lists. Lists coming out of her ears. I have three days to pack so if I think of something I just go and get it and put it on the pile.

    • Hello Wendy 😀 No, I don’t think you missed anything. As she has no firm date of arrival and I have no hospital appointments, I am going. It would be a shame to miss such a holiday on the chance that she may come here during the 2 weeks. Ralph xox ❤

  8. Oh, please take that snappy white hat in the upper right of the photo. Otherwise, I think you’ve got it about right for an overnight trip! Just use some bungee straps to hold the darn thing together. If you’re staying any longer, then you need to cram more in. I’ve never given you bad advice, have I? Have I ever given you any advice? (I take less than that for 3 months in Venice, by the way.)

    Sonic is so shiny, he must have someone taking good care of him.

    Have you let your credit card company know you might be using the card outside Spain?

    Don’t forget to wear clean underwear, have a clean hanky, go to the loo before you leave.

    Have a wonderful time, Ralphie. Hugs from Down Under. oxoxox ❤

    • Hi Yvonne 😀

      As you know, I always take your advice, so I’ll holiday in Beth’s little black dress 😉

      I look after Sonic. He’s a permanent house cat and never goes outside except on the balconies, so he is healthy and doesn’t pick up ticks or fleas.

      Credit card company ? No !! I’ll ring my bank on Monday to warn them. Thanks for the tip !!

      Yes Ma, I won’t forget those things. And I promise to be a good boy. *fingers crossed behind my back*

      Thank you my friend. Hugs from Spain. Ralph xox ❤

  9. Ralph, I look forward to your posts while there, but don’t worry if you don’t have time.

    Sorry if these are silly questions:
    Are you jewish?
    Can anyone easily enter Israel?
    Do you have family or friends there?
    What are your thoughts of the Palestine-Israeli conflict?
    Sorry, maybe too many questions!

    I do like the white hat and grey one in the middle 🙂

    Have a wonderful time…

    • Hello Carmen 😀

      Thank you for your kind words. I may take two hats as I think that I can make room for one in my suitcase 😀

      From what I’ve read on your blog I think you will need the summer to select your outfits from your massive collection of clothes 😉

      I hope to have a great time in Jerusalem.. I’ll try to post while there.

      Have a great Sunday. Ralph xox ❤

      Like

      • Yes, you’re quite right, it takes time to select, especially since I am a minimalist when it comes to packing for a trip because I like to take only a carry-on: no lineups when leaving at the airport, no baggage pickup at arrival and I have room for clothes that I will buy in NYC. No woman can go to NYC and not buy any clothes. 😉

        Have a fabulous time in Jerusalem! 🙂
