"Here are a few items that I bring along to simplify my life on the road:
- A small plastic whistle to hail taxis around the world
- Mailing labels preaddressed to my office back home
- A laminated miniature copy of my birth certificate
- An extra watch set to the time back at my office, so I don’t have to compute time-zone changes.
