My interests are watching my fave things on TV and DVD. These mainly are anything with Adam Sandler in, horror movies and too many other comedies to mention. I also love going to the cinema and watching football.

Up to now I've remembered to take everything with me on my holidays that I meant to. I am one of those though that ends up packing and then repacking so that I can fit everything in my suitcase. So therfore for me, there is certainly more then 10 indispensable things that I take on my hols, but don't worry I will only list 10.
Clothes I know that sounds obvious but I always make sure that I have something for all occassions and any emergencies that can happen. I always come home with stuff I haven't worn.
Passport/Tickets/Confirmation. You can't get where you want without them. I find it hard to believe that anyone can forget any of these. Even if holidaying in this country you need the confirmation or booking info.
Book I love reading so use the time travelling to get some serious reading done. Also being an insomniac I would be lost without a book. I always take 2 with me in case I ever get through one of them.
First Aid/Medication I always take a few first aid items away with me, plasters, bandages, sissors, paracetamol, dia calm type tablets, Bongela and vaseline. Also I have to take medication every day for epilepsy, so I make sure that I have enough for however many days I will be away from home and extra in case I lose it or as I have done on occassion dropped a tablet down the sink and also my inhaler for asthma
Sunglasses I hate the glare of the sun and having to squint and screw my eyes up constantly, so these are with me as soon as the sun begins to shine.
Suncream and after sun I don't tan, I burn, peel and then become a darker shade of white. Therefore I use a high facter suncream and without it I would burn up dangerously.
Nail file. Yes it's sad I know, but I have long nails which I like to look nice and if one was to break I would want to file it back into shape.
Money Even if you were away on a all inclusive deal you would still want some spending money.
Mobile I'm not that sad that I can't life without, I just like the security of having it with me, especially when in a strange place abroad.
Digital camera They take your memories home for you.
As I said there are more I can add to that list but those on it are more or less the first things that I pack.
One thing I did forget when going on my last holiday was a suitcase! I'd already decided what I was taking with me and had most of it already piled up to pack away, when I realised the suitcase I had was too big. I then had less then 24 hours to find one. Luckly I passed the mission and got one of the suitcases on wheels that can fit in as handluggage for the bargain price of £7.50, and it's a funky patterned one as well!
