Travel Lessons: Laundry

During my three months backpacking in Europe laundering facilities were hard to come by. They were expensive. And when you only have two pairs of pants with you and 6 shirts it's annoying to pay for an entire washer and dryer.

After a while I became a little creative:

(Nice, France)
In a French hotel? Use a bidet to soak your clothes!

(Riomaggiore, Italy)
Let them soak in a nice bubble bath!

(Riomaggiore, Italy)
Stir them around to get them nice and clean!

(Paris, France)
If you are stuck in a hostel where the windows don't open, try to find a space to hang a clothes line inside. This one is draped across the end of my hostel bed. I slept with the clothes hanging over me all night.

(Riomaggiore, Italy)
Hopefully you have enough clothes pins!

(Manarola, Italy-- and NOT my undies!)
Be shameless! Let it all hang out!
