I mean, I get it. I wouldn’t really want to bring more than that. I have scoured the internet and blogosphere looking at what is most pertinent to buy. But it is a critical time, because now I want to save so I have enough money to visit Cape Town or Mozambique!
I love this picture. This is after my three month stint in Nepal. Three months! I was only there for three months and look at what I carried around with me in. In my defense, I accumulated that striped bag only at the end. But if this is what I look like for only three months, what about two years?
Luckily, I have a lot of items due to my travels in India and Nepal. But now I find I am in need of items that I wouldn’t otherwise think about. Like I need a short wave radio. I don’t even know what that is, but I know that I need it.
And a hammock.
And a sleeping bag.
And perhaps a sewing kit… that would be nice, right?
