    Richmond What to Pack

    If you go to Richmond, or anywhere else in the world, by plane be prepared for loss of your luggage by the airlines. It happened to us thanks to KLM. So, Urszula and I were separated from our luggage for the first two days in the South. We had a camera, video camera, newspapers, travel books, some cosmetics but no clothes to change! It was not...

    Richmond What to Pack

    Take as many films as you can or as large memory card as you can - Richmond offers a lot for photography lovers :-). For pictures at night and/or bad light (weather) and esp. pictures inside Jefferson Hotel (on my picture) take a tripod.

  • a good guide

    We have a whole series of good guides we use when we travel to various parts of the country. We also pick up a lot of literature and maps from the welcome stations.The Delorme series is one of the better sets of maps, guides and lists of places to see.You woud be well advised to pop one in your trunk for use this year.

  • Virginia Beachgoer's Packing list

    Bring a swimsuit. sunscreen, and a hat. Bring aloe and noxema, in case of sunburn. Bring your camera If you have small children, especially babies, bring a small camping tent. It will block out the sun, sand, and wind. BELIEVE me, they work!!

  • Camera and loads of film

    Virginia has four definite seasons, so what you pack is reflected by what season you travel. Comfortable shoes is always a must. Travel-sized insect repellent is good to have on hand any time of the year. AH! Depending on what you want to preserve, I actually recommend both a good 35mm camera and a camcorder if you have one. 400iso is great for...

  • Packing List

    No need to carry everything you ever owned with you unless you're planning on moving here. Virginia has four distinctive seasons. Dress accordingly. If you suffer from allergies, bring your medicine particularly in spring and in autumn. A good 35 mm camera like the pictured Kodak advantix and plenty of film.

  • Packing List

    We travelled by plane and car so a medium suitcase was fine. Make sure you pack enough underwear for two days in your carry on bag If you going in the summer make sure your clothing is cotton, silk or other natural fibres. It's very humid. We were there in June and temperatures were in the high 90s. Of course most places are air conditioned but...
