How I packed my bag to travel South America

pont galata istanbul It’s always a challenge packing for a trip to unfamiliar climate and terrain. I knew my journey would test it all:
- trendy city life in Buenos Aires
- ice cold waters of the Chilean Pacific Ocean
- snowboarding in The Andes Mountains
- wandering the frosty desserts of Bolivia
- hiking Machu Pichu
- exploring the amazonian jungle in Ecuador
- basking in the sun and caribbean waters of Colombia
- surfing the entire west coast of the Americas and much, much more…
sonnerie avec mon nom I travel light compared to most, whether it be for a weekend of camping in Australia or a month of snowboarding in Japan. I don’t need much. Although, this next adventure sure tested my packing skills.

logo laurent perrier After programme de travaux and bricolage de lapin, firstly, I needed to find what I thought would be the best backpack on the market to comfortably get around and at the right price. Everyone I’d spoken to that’d traveled a bit replied the same. What ever size backpack you think you need – THINK SMALLER!
gel allume feu My other tip was also NOT to get a backpack that opens from the top (like most hiking packs do). When I would search for something in my pack it would be better to access my things from the front (similar to how a suitcase would open). Actually, during my travels, I have watched on as so many other backpackers with top opening packs would struggle in hostel rooms trying to dig to the bottom of their bag to find what they needed.

emploi quebec levis I’ll proudly say I’m not the most tech-savvy Gen-Y around, but I do like to have good access to the small luxuries making travel easier. I’ve put together what items I chose to take. When choosing these items my main thinking was size and weight to carry with me. I also had to consider value of these items incase of damage or theft.

After having Linda share with me some of her photographer advice I then switched to only taking photos on my iPhone. After a few lessons and many arguments for taking bad photos of her, I soon felt like I was taking way better snaps simply using my iPhone and appreciating the basics of taking a good photo.

I came across the most helpful travel App which I highly recommend for anyone to get prior to taking on for a trip. diego berger paroles provides fast, detailed and completely offline maps of all countries to ensure you never get lost. The category tab within this App is also great for finding Hostels, Wifi, ATM’s, Markets, etc.

I originally thought I wouldn’t spend much time on my computer but it’s perfect for reading, researching, emailing and listening to all my music. Only downside is the internal memory is limited, but I threw in a 1 TB external hard drive to load up.

Just remember that cool retro Tee you plan on wearing for your photo at the top of Machu Picchu might be fashionable now, but, maybe when you show the photo to your kids a few years later they might not agree. So, keep it simple and stay classy.

creatine tri malate I traveled with a little more medical supplies than others. I do recommend packing extra if like me, you plan to get off the beaten track. In the case you do happen to unfortunately injure yourself or become ill, sometimes it’s just bad luck that it will happen when you’re far from any form of medical treatment. Luckily I packed a little more as I became the ‘go-to on the road medic’ between travel friends.

logiciels de traduction de texte At the time of packing I finally got everything to fit like a glove. I was too worried about under packing and forgetting something. It’s crazy now to look back and realise how stupid that sounds. I shouldn’t have stressed: with some local currency and a bit of confidence, I could always have gone and bartered down at the markets anyway.
gare de rueil malmaison adresse Now, after a year wandering throughout South, Central and North America, I am more experienced. So there is fewer things I would have taken and as a result I could get away with a smaller bag. I would probably ditch my sleeping bag (can rent these everywhere for short camp trips), hiking boots (a good pair of runners will do fine) and some other clothing that I didn’t wear that much.
So even for me I would still go smaller if I had the chance to pack again; it will probably be the topic of another post ;)
