The bags are packed

Hello friends! Here we go, my ultimate packing list. This is what I’m taking with me, as it goes into the bag. 


Short shorts . . .3/4 length running pants . . .3 pairs of lightweight jazzy trousers. . .One pair of jazzy shorts. . .One polka dot dress. . .Two bikinis. . .Three vest tops. . .One crop top . . .One long sleeved top. . .One jumper. . .Two t-shirts. . .One fleece. . .One pair of thick socks. . .Two bras. . .Five pants. . .Five socks. . .Lightweight scarf. . .Shopper bag. . .Two pairs of flip flops << Does that seem like a lot or a little to you? I’m convinced I’m taking too many items of clothing, but the chap says if it fits in the bag I might as well take it. 


Comb. . .Spare sunglasses. . .Tissues. . .Hair bands. . .Mossie spray. . .Small body butter (my one luxury!). . .Deodorant. . .Lip balm. . .Tweezers. . .Nail clippers. . .Food bags. . .A selection of simple earrings. . .Micro fibre towel. . .Money belt. . .Sandals

And not forgetting the airport bag!

Puzzle book. . .Colouring book. . .Colouring pencils. . .Ear plugs. . .iPod mini . . .Snacks (obvs). . .Hairbrush. . .Sleep mask . . .Purse. . .Passport . . .Tissues

I think I have found the correct balance between being comfortable and being practical, but really, only time will tell. I might feel the need to ditch a few clothes, or maybe pick up a few more along the way. As long as I can carry my bags myself and not feel too restricted by them, then I would have done well. 

One more sleep to go. What on earth am I doing? 

PS I’ve now repacked and taken out a few things that I can live without. Anything to decrease the weight on my back!

  1. Good list! We took way too much on our first trip and found we were always wearing the same things. The scarf/shawl was my best item, good for covering up in temples but also keep warm when they crank up the air-con on the night buses!
