I’ve pretty much completed my kit list for my mission, all should hopefully last me through out the year i’m away. I’ve taken great effort to ensure I pack as little as possible, originally I planned on spending lots of money on a huge rucksack with attactchable daypack. Just because I’m like that, quick to purchase the thing which looks fancy without taking much consideration. However after reading thousands of websites i’ve luckily changed my mind before it was too late!
“The biggest mistakes … that travellers make? Packing too heavily, relying on outdated guidebooks, not wearing a money belt, leaving home with too many hotel reservations, and taking other people’s opinions too seriously.
“Everyone says pack light, but the vast majority of backpackers don’t until they have learnt the hard way”
The main benefits of having a small bag is the ability to carry it with you at all times, you won’t have to check it onto a plane or place it onto the top of a bus. You can happily jump off a bus and go for a wander without the annoyance of checking in your rucksack etc……..
So, here is a run down of everything I’ve bought in preperation for my trip.
