I'm all booked up and ready to leave on a year long rtw trip, i'm traveling through China, round far east asia, then on to australia, N Z, Fiji, America, Canada and then back home. However, for the first time I'm actually having to think about packing, HELP!!! I really don't know where to start. I guess I'll be able to figure out the most of it, however I'm sure that there will be things that really won't ever cross my mind in a million years, well, untill its to late anyhow.
So I was just wondering what stuff you lot are so glad that you've taken with you, or wished that you had.
It really would be a big help to hear from you.
Thanks a lot
well i leave in 11 days and i am in the middle of working out what i am taking!!
Camping stores have really good packing lists for backpacking- tells you pretty much everything to take. Also on the internet do a search and you will find lots of lists and just work out what you need to bring for yourself and stuff which you dont need to take!
Most importantly - pack light! whatever you take you have to carry!
Thanks alot for the advice, I hadn't acctually even thought about looking on the net, so I'll go and have a good search round now, but first me thinks breakfast, m mm mmm
Good luck with the packing?!
Check out the Tools page and refer to the Packing List section.
Good luck and enjoy your trip.
