HOW MUCH DID WE PACK

PREVIOUS / NEXT

TRAVELS by KRISS on 12 november 2015

HOW MUCH DID WE PACK So what you see is about everything we packed for the next 3 months including all we need to work.
We didn’t include in the photos the little pocket bags each of us carry as well because they really weren’t worth mentioning.
So in total we have :

- 1 backpack of 70 liters.
- 1 backpack of 50 liters.
- 3 backpacks of 25-30liters.

You may wonder how we managed to narrow this down and the answer is simple.
As we will be only traveling to tropical countries in central America (Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua) we don’t need anything else each than :

- 3 or 4 tee shirts.
- 2 shorts and one swimsuit.
- a pair of flip flops.
- a pair of walking shoes we wear on the trip.
- 3 or 4 underwear.
basics for toiletry.
- basics for medicine.
- essential oils.
- electronics.
- books for the kids homeworks.
I may be forgetting a few things but that’s about it.

Also we put everything in small plastic bags with a zip before dispatching in the proper bags.
That really does save a lot of hassle and a lot of time when you need to access something.
We’ve actually been living for the past few weeks on what is in our bags and it is no more and not less than what we need.

I remember having been on holidays with about what we have for three months for 5 of us only for a week for Kate and I.
At the end we ended up using 10% of what we had taken and just having overloaded ourselves.

This time we swore we wouldn’t make the same mistake and I actually ended up clearing a few tee shirts and shorts from the kids bags this morning.
I can see only one tiny problem with all this plan.

The kids actually can’t carry much so I end up crying everyone’s bags and I feel like an old used mule (Kate does her fair share as well).
Right now, we are taking advantage of the free wifi at Malaga airport to write this post and our flight will soon be boarding.
We’ll keep you up with adventures along our nomad wifi connections !
