That Girl Away

By the time you read this, I will have gotten on a subway and a train to go to the airport and fly off to Denver for the weekend. In fact, I’ll probably already be there. Anyways, I splurged and since it’s only for two nights I’m staying at an actual hotel (!). It’s going to be a nice little weekend away where I’m assuming I’ll see a couple of sites, go to the Denver Zoo, and eat a ton of food.

So what did I pack for an uneventful three days and two nights in Denver? I’m glad you asked.


It’s likely that I overpacked, even for three days.

  • Two sets of workout leggings and tank tops (the company I work for opened a studio in Denver a few months back so I’ll be working out!)
  • Sleeping pants & a tank top
  • One pair of black leggings
  • Two tank tops
  • One cardigan
  • Chargers
  • Reading light (I probably don’t need this)
  • Camera
  • Lens cleaner
  • Chargers
  • iPad
  • Travel journal
  • Round brush
  • Ear buds
  • Glasses
  • A book (I’ve since switched it out for the Four Agreements)
  • Water bottle
  • Misc. toiletries

So, that’s it. That’s all of it. My backpack is super light and I’m going to feel like I’m fleeing the city with only the clothes I could carry when I go through security tomorrow. As always, I’ll be taking my Tortuga backpack. It’s the best. I also use their packing cubes but I’m thinking they might take up too much room in my bag so I might forego them next time.
