Countdown (eight days and a wake up) – Figuring out what to pack

It’s eight days and a wake up before the big trip and I haven’t started packing yet. I’m still undecided as to whether I should just take my backpack or take my backpack and a small suitcase. I know we never need all the things we think we need. However, being that I’ll have a permanent place to stay even though I’ll be exploring sometimes for days at a time I’m thinking I could get away with taking a suitcase. Decisions, decisions.

I’m told it’s rainy season so I’ll need a raincoat, an umbrella and rain boots. I’ve decided to get the rain boots when I get there. I know for sure I’ll be taking these 10 wardrobe essentials for women:

  1. Plain White Tee
  2. Black leggings
  3. Ballet Flats
  4. Skin Tone-matching camisole
  5. Black Cardigan
  6. Classic Pumps  (they may not necessarily be classic pumps)
  7. Dark Denim
  8. White Blouse
  9. Little Black Dress
  10. Classic Black Pants

I’ll probably also need one or two light weight sweaters for night-time or early mornings. Once I’m done packing I’ll publish my final packing list so you can see what I’m actually taking. I’ve read about individuals who’ve traveled for one or two years with only a backpack and they were just fine.

  1. Congrats on your pending travels! A backpack can definitely be done, and even when I know I am going to be hunkered down in one place for six months I try to limit it to just the one bag because it also makes it heaps more fun to shop there — and things have a way of just expanding when you have an apartment.

    Safe travels and I hope your adventure gets off to a great start. 🙂
