1 checked bag, 1 carry-on and 1 personal item.
For 1 year of travel.
It makes sense to leave behind any non essentials. But, somehow, it seemed essential to bring my brand new NutriBullet blender. Cousin Kevin could not stop clowning me! Wicked weird, but what can I say? I like starting my day off smooth.
The NutriBullet blender is not that big, and fit into my checked bag, no problem. And, once I got some fresh frutas & vegetales here in Córdoba, it was GAME ON! ‘Who’s weird now?’, I thought, as I’m sippin’ sweet smoothness.
But, suddenly, my smoothie smelled like…smoke? And, then I saw...sparks? Uh oh. Apparently, my NutriBullet is no bueno with the voltage here in Argentina. Guess I should have read question #10 on the NutriBullet FAQs page.
On the bright side, even though the blender fit into my checked bag---it was a bit heavy. I knew I needed to shed some lbs before the next flight, and I'm not about to get rid of essentials like Power Bars & Gummi Bears.
