I'm Elisabeth Sowerbutts, I took my first trip when I was about 3 years old, and I haven't really stopped travelling since. I've been to every continent, except Antarctica, and done everything from backpacking to being a business traveller. I spent six months solo travelling through South America and another six months backpacking through India, Nepal and SE Asia.
My partner didn't used to travel much but I've passed the bug onto him now. Our more recent adventures include Europe in the middle of winter, Thailand, and 35,000km's through Australia's outback.
I've lived in England, Scotland, Canada and Australia, and currently I'm back home in New Zealand
I write a popular travel tips blog called: Lis's Travel Tips.
I've also published my first book on Vacation Packing: Save Your Back, Time and Money
First I want to be able to travel that much, hopefully when both kids are done with college. Then I will have to take your lessons to heart. You are definitely the master at packing light. :)
Haha - yes I wear mine all winter too! I dance in a very cold hall in the winter - and they are perfect under a dance skirt!
I'm wearing that very Merino Minus 33 RIGHT NOW! Kid you not. It's wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Smooth, not itchy, and WARM.
Hmmmm... I need to create a wizzley page on it. I am a huge fan.
