Find out why I love doing laundry when I travel
A lot of people go on vacation to escape the everyday, mundane tasks of life. If you hate doing laundry, you may be skeptical about this post. But I’ve discovered that I LOVE doing laundry on vacation (and, as is often the case, sending my spouse out to do it as well!)
I am a passionate believer in only packing a carry-on bag, nothing else. Planning to do laundry several times ensures that I don’t overpack, and the few items I bring in my small suitcase stay fresh. On every trip, there are a few pieces of clothing that I wear again and again. Doing laundry allows me to enjoy wearing my favourites and guarantees that I’ll have something clean and available no matter the weather. No surprises there – doing laundry means you have clean clothing!! And it’s worth the few hours every time.
Camping at Sandbanks Provincial Park was about to get interesting...
I was so very much looking forward to our first mini-trip of the season – two days and nights camping at Sandbanks Provincial Park in Picton, Ontario. Having been to this park before, I knew we would love the gorgeous white sand beaches and the huge expanse of Lake Ontario – both so reminiscent of the ocean. The park is a lovely escape to nature and is well run. As well, the nearby charming town of Picton offers nice shops and good cafes. All in all, a good chance for a budget escape. Not quite the Atlantic coast, but it would do in a pinch.
