Packing List

 

When I started doing research for RTW trips and extended travel, I found myself obsessed with checking out others’ packing lists. Since all you travel bloggers out there helped me very much by posting yours, now it’s our turn to post ours. Hope this is helpful! Below is the packing list for Turkey. Since we’ll be coming back to the US before the Souheast Asia leg, this list will be modified slightly for that part of the trip. Basically removing the jeans for each of us and adding in a long skirt for me. Might bring fewer shirts too, but we’ll see how it goes. The rest will be the same, I think. This includes the clothes etc. we are wearing on the plane.

Everything is going to be packed into 2 main carry-on bags (an Osprey Farpoint 55 & an eBags Weekender Convertible)  plus 2 small backpacks (one is the detachable from the Osprey Farpoint 55 and another a Black Diamond Bullet)
