Travel | Backpacking : What to pack?

Hi sweeties! This my first time backpacking and I had many, many questions. The most important question is ‘What to pack’?. When I’m going on holiday I always want to bring my whole closet. Of course my with my favorite items. If you are going backpacking is that not so handy. You have to carry the backpack a lot, so the trick is to pack only the important things. And with clothes? Only the basic, and the trick is to make a lot of combinations with less. Well that was a challenge for me ;). 

I thought why not share this with you guys. Maybe you gonna want to go backpacking like me. So I figure out what to bring when you gonna backpacking. 🙂

  9. Birth control
  10. Soap
  11. ORS
  12. Locks for your backpack.

  15. Clothesline
  16. Deet

  2. Bed sheet and pillow case
  3. Towel (special one, this will dry very quick)

How to survive the flight?

  1. Magazines
  2. Ipod
  3. Food (We all know how airplane food will taste) 
  4. Vita Coca
  5. Candy

  1. 3 shorts
  2. 8 till 10 tops

  4. 1 evening dress
  5. 2 bikini’s
  6. 2 blouse
  7. 1 jacket
  8. 2 flip-flops
  9. 1 sneakers
  10. 1 pants
  11. 2 sunglasses
  12. some accessories (Yep, still a fashionista)
  13. 2 bh’s 
  14. 10 slips and socks
I’m so proud at myself. I managed and also in 40 minutes. Normally I takes hours and hours. So backpacking is less stressful than a holiday for 1 or 2 weeks. It is because you have to carry everything yourself, so you don’t want a heavy back, hihi.  I also find a great informative website for backpacking, click here.
I hope this was very handy and useful for you! 
Have a nice day sweeties
