In deciding what to bring on trips to far away places, few items beyond basic needs make the 50lb cut. A sarong hardly seems totally necessary, right? But after several life-saving moments with my sarong-turned-scarf, I have permanently moved this item from the superfluous list to the Can’t Live Without list. Get cold on the plane or on a windy tuk-tuk in the rain? Wrap up, cover-up and warm up with the sarong! Didn’t bring sunscreen on the boat and your left arm is exposed? Sarong Screen! Is the seat dirty or wet? Fold it up and sit on it! Step out of the shower and realize you forgot your towel? Never fear, sarong is here!
