I imagine it has happened to everyone…you spend days packing, making lists of what to bring, checking your luggage, and then you arrive at your destination and realize….you forgot your toothbrush! I can’t even count the number of times it has happened to us.



Welcome to Forgot My Toothbrush, a travel website and blog that will hopefully make your travel planning easier. Here, we will share our experiences and travel tips with you. We are not (yet) full time travelers, but hey, we can dream! Before we travel, we spend hours, days, or weeks researching what to do, what not to do, how to do it, how to get there, etc. After all the time we spend researching and packing, it’s almost inevitable that we forget something, and often it really is our toothbrushes. Hopefully our tips and experiences can help you spend a little less time researching and make your planning a bit easier…and your biggest worry will be where to buy a toothbrush!

  • KuKu Campers Iceland – Overview and Review
    One of our main concerns was having a table of some sort inside the camper – I asked if the small camper we were planning to rent would have this table inside or if we needed to get a bigger camper in order to have a table. They responded quickly, saying that all of their campers have a table inside so we can eat inside (we went to Iceland in March so it was very cold). I was then told to put in the comments that we needed a table to make sure we got it. The email said they can’t 100% guarantee […]

  • Camper Vans
    CAMPER VANS – THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOUR NEXT TRIP?   Until last year, I didn’t realize the popularity of camper vans. We were planning our trip to Iceland and I was looking for an Airbnb to book in Reykjavik. Additionally, I was going to have to rent a car and then plan out all the rest of our Airbnbs along the way so that we had somewhere to stay. Alternatively, I was just going to rent the car and then figure out where to stay along the way – I figured there’d be hostels or hotels to […]
  • Lisbon in a Day
    LISBON IN A DAY I don’t necessarily recommend seeing Lisbon in a day – there’s no way you’ll be able to see everything worth seeing. However, if that’s all the time you have, you can make the most of it and see as much as possible in that day! In this post, I will give you a sample itinerary for your very full one day in Lisbon. First thing’s first – you need to wake up early! Lines get long and you will quickly run out of time if you don’t start your day until 10am. I recommend being ready to […]
