packing list

Packing for a round-the-world trip can be a daunting task. Depending on where in the world and seasons in the hemispheres you’ll be traveling to, it’s best to be prepared for the climate.

If you forget something at home it’s not a big deal because most of the things you need can be bought on the road. Plus, if you have friends and family meeting up with you on your journey, they can always bring you stuff. It’s best to travel as light as possible.

After a little research from reading other traveler’s packing lists and from personal experience, here’s a list of things in my backpack.
