before i left for southeast asia and bombay i wrote about my travel essentials that go with me on every trip. those made the journey with me, as did the below items.
7 assorted v-neck and crew neck t-shirts for daily wear; 2 nice tops for going out; 2 t-shirts for lounging and sleeping
2 pairs of shorts and 2 skirts for daily wear; 2 dresses for going out; 1 pair of running shorts; 1 pair of boxers
2 running singlets; 2 pairs of dri-fit cropped leggings; 2 sports bras; 2 pairs of socks
laptop; nikon d3100 camera + 15-70 mm lens; sony cybershot point-and-shoot camera; iphone 6; earphones; kindle paperwhite; 2 physical books; sakroots sling bag; bag for dirty laundry; reusable water bottle; various chargers and toiletries
overall i was pretty proud of my packing. my rucksack was never too full or heavy, i used almost everything i carried with me, i managed to keep it all moderately organized even with all the unpacking and repacking, and i even had space for random souvenirs collected along the way.
how do you pack for longer trips? what are the things you can’t leave behind?
