Packing Small

It is now just 4 weeks until we leave so time to get down to some of the details – packing.

One of the great challenges of travel is deciding what to pack.  Apart from the obvious clothes and footwear there are many other things that people choose to take with them when they travel.

For us it is the following broad categories:

Eating utensils

We stay in Air BnB accommodation and most provide shampoo, conditioner, soap and shower gel.  I do not take any of these items as I can always buy some as required.  We take a mini tube of toothpaste and toothbrushes as well as my facewash and moisturiser.  I will buy a full-sized tube of toothpaste when we arrive.

I have decanted the facewash and moisturiser into small containers which I know hold enough to last me for 6 weeks.

GMan will pack deodorant and his razor and I will add my make-up which is the same as what I use here – lipstick, mascara and blush.

In my next post I will discuss the electronics we will be taking, including the new tablet.
