Quite impressive list. But do you really carry your credit card(s) and its/their PIN code in one place? One crucial advice: don't. I know what I'm talking about; I've been robbed in Brazil (and nearly robbed in Indonesia). They never got my cards and my PIN codes together. DhDh 01:47, 11 Feb 2004 (EST)

I fail to see the reason for a lot of these. Some I don't even know what are:

  • Invitation letter: Who's inviting whom to what?
  • Marriage certificate: Why?
  • Other documents: Which ones?
  • Sweater: This depends on where you're going.
  • Tidbits or polo: What kind of tidbits? I don't play polo, so why should I bring it?
  • Pocket knife: This is likely to be confiscated at the airport.
  • Torch: I'm not a welder, so why should I carry one?
  • Chess: Chess isn't a video game, and what does a cell phone have to do with either?
  • Collar bones: Hopefully these are in your shoulders, not in your sewing kit!
  • Inhaler/roll on/nasal spray: This is a contradiction in terms.

Thanks a ton, Some of these are specific brand names available in India. Updated the list with clarifications, take a look. -Sridhar 10:25, 11 Feb 2004 (IST)
