In the spirit of what Nutella said, I think if where you live is postcard worthy, it´s nice to grab a few and put your info on there.

I also wish I had brought a picture of my family. When I met people, it would have been nice to show them when they inquired about my home life. Plus, it would have been nice for me since I´m four months away from home and miss them! (However, since you are on your honeymoon, I would imagine you will be more focused on each other than anyone else).

I found a bottle of febreze very helpful for really stinky clothes. You can get a mini bottle for around 2 dollars.

I recommend the Eagle Creek silk moneybelt, found at REI and other stores. The silk is lightweight, and seemed to make things less sweaty. It is small, and fit comfortably even under my snug hip hugger jeans. If the money belt you buy doesn´t come with some kind of plastic instead, put your stuff in a ziplock, so it doesn´t get damp. The Eagle Creek one I mentioned comes with a plastic liner.

ear plugs
lip balm
allergy meds
hair ties
one of those compact duffle bags that opens up to "huge" size (for your laundry on the way home so you can pack your souvenirs, etc. in your suitcase).

I hope you don't bring all of this stuff that people here suggested. You would need a truck.....!
If you are going to the northpole or other uncivilized places I can understand why you need to bring all this stuff. Remember it is possible to buy things you need while on vacation!
I always pack just necessary things because I always end up with buying a lot of stuff and clothes on my vacations.
Don't forget your tickets!

I have to second the last poster's comments. I have travelled quite a bit in the last couple of months and trust me, you really only want to take the essentials especially now that security and airlines are being so tough about what is in your luggage. On top of which, the last thing you need on a multi-destination trip such as yours, is to be lugging around heavy bags from plane to train to taxis to hotels etc. You will be sorry if you do that. Alot of the stuff suggested, laundry detergent etc forget about it. You can buy it where you are going. Besides, there is no doubt that you will be buying lots of souvenirs and you will need room for those. So relax, pack light and enjoy!
