My partner has done the same and left his camera battery charger. And it was the one time I did not bring my camera. . . .

Last time we flew to Europe, I left my phone charger in the British Airways Lounge...

Ooops.

Gosh... you guys are talking about duct tape and chargers, and here I go...

I always take a rainbow flag emblem or HRC logo... pin for a hat or a luggage tag for my tote to leave out when I am sunning, reading, etc. Just to fly the colors and perhaps meet a friend. Discrete, but visible.

C'mon guys, no one mentions lube and condoms?

On the duct tape, I was told a long time ago about someone on a cruise when something went awry with the plumbing and some ugly odors were eminating from the shower drain. They taped over the drain when the shower was not in use.

A few gallon sized ziploc bags for wet swim suits and sandy water shoes.

A nightlight to help me find my way to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
Because the single bathroom outlet is two prong and should you wish to extend its uses, the attached is handy for a night-light, toothbrush charger and electric razor. On the subject of night-light, some ships have the new green glow emitter occupying the single outlet. Where not, the flashlight is a good idea or a 4W night light helps not only to find the bathroom but eliminates using the external light switch and disturbing your bed mate in the middle of the night.

But I like disturbing my bed mate in the middle of the night...heck, it's one of the reasons I keep him around!

Ah, memories.... But now he'd find himself on the numbered side of a locked door.
