While I was out today running last minute errands for our trip (we leave in 5 days!!!) I stopped into REI to pick up a small SIGG water bottle to bring with me as well as one of those neoprene insulator pouches with a strap so I can hang it off my camera bag or my messenger bag I also picked up this incredible cute little case.
Can you guess what it is?
More photos and a description below.
It is the worlds cutest travel picnic set!
When we travel we like to stop in local shops and pick up a bit of this, a nibble of that, some cheese, some pate and eat as we travel around rather than always stopping somewhere for lunch.
It's always been tough in a rental car with no comforts of home, hoping the cheese monger or local shop has plastic utensils or buying a knife to cut cheese and then leaving it there when we come home.
This is the perfect solution. Small enough to fit in the suitcase, it measures 11 X 7 X 2.5 and has everything you need for a picnic on the road.
Two wine glasses, a bottle opener/corkscrew, a full set of metal knives, forks and spoons, a CHEESE KNIFE(!). A small cutting board (on the right) and underneath the board two plates, a cloth to spread out and a small condiment set.
It is called En Route and you can find it at REI and other locations.
I am getting ridiculously excited. Ahhhhh vacation.
