Where Are/Were You Going and Why? I travel a lot for work, but my last trip was all fun: to France with my husband to see friends and eat a little too well.

One Travel Essential You Always Pack: Floss. It's good for so many things: doing magic tricks, line-drying clothes, starting fires, cutting food, etc. You can make an excellent tiny parachute with floss and a tea bag.
