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!
