Packing for Seattle

Nicole Voris

I recently traveled to Seattle to perform.  I was lucky enough to be a part of one of my best friend's pieces.  Thank you Erin Crall for including me in your vision! I felt lucky to be a part of it!

When I travel, I try to pack as light as possible.  I can't stand it when I pack and take something with me, but it doesn't end up being used.  It's a game for me, a sad adult game, but a game none the less.

Going to Seattle in November with the second side of performing made it a bit more of a challenge for me.  I stuck to my normal strategy of packing mostly in the black and white realm.  I also added a coat and a poncho that I could wear as a scarf.

I also ended up adding a pair of boots, a cocktail dress for the show reception, and a pair of flats. I also forgot to photograph my toiletries and makeup, but I'm sure you get the idea!  I packed it all in my travel backpack.  I'm proud of how well I did this trip! What are your packing strategies? Any tips?
