Eric Maryniak - Vacation checklist (English / Engels)


This is the english version of my vacation checklist. There is also a "Vacation checklist (Dutch / Nederlands)".
While not strictly related, my "Verhuis checklist" (Move house checklist) may also come in handy (available in Dutch only). English is not my native tongue, so please do not hesitate to send me corrections (e-mail address is below).

This vacation checklist is meant to be as general as possible (better too much than sorry).
There is a small emphasis on backpacking in the tropics.

Please don't hesitate to mail additions to this list to me!
And yes, I know there is such a beastie called a table, but I like to keep my pages as standard and minimalist as possible ("standard" being 2.0 and only 3.2 thingies like background and such). You'll be surprised at the number of pre 2.7 Lynx and Netscape pre 4 users passing by on the web servers I've maintained the last five years.
