I haven't started my packing list yet but one thing that i've been told to do by numerous people is to make several copies of my passport and drivers license and keep them stashed in different parts of your suitcase, your purse, etc just incase someone steals it from you then you have an extra copy stashed somewhere. The other thing that I'm going to do is scan them and send myself an e-mail of them just to have them that way to...you might want to do the same just to be safe!

Good! I've got a bunch of meds as well. I was told that I won't need to take the malaria pills though because of where we're going to be travelling but it's probably best to have them just incase. I leave in 16 days...I can't believe how close it is! I'm so excited! And I love the fact that your a shopper! I am too! I think we're going to have a blast together!

I was told that some of the areas that we are going to we may be at risk, so I would prefer to be safe than sorry!
Also I think I need them for some of the parts of Vietnam I'm going to after our trip
Thats so good to hear, the more shopping buddies the better :D I've been told chang mai is the best place for shopping so Im looking forward to our time there!

One of my friends has been to Thailand and she says the shopping is amazing. She just told me yesterday to only pack two shirts, one dress and one pair of shorts, so that I have enough room for the clothes I will buy when there. haha Apparently she went to Thailand with one suitcase and came back with two. :)
