Our junk

Top 5 Things We’re Glad We Brought

  1. Chacos…the best, most comfortable, most durable sandals in the world
  2. Travel towel…it’s basically a Shamwow!  It’s tiny and it dries so fast!
  3. A tent…camping has saved us money on accommodation so many times!
  4. Sleeping bags…although bulky, they don’t weight much and we need them when camping.  It’s cold at altitude!
  5. A Nook…1000 books in one tiny device…such an amazing space-saver and endless entertainment!

Top 5 Things We Wish We Brought

  1. A telephoto lens…we have wished we had one SOOOO many times when trying to shoot wildlife or other closeups that my 18-55mm just can’t cut it for.
  2. A watch…it’s annoying to have to turn on some electronic every time we want to know what time it is.  Also, the best alarm we have is on an iPod and that still doesn’t wake us up all the time.
  3. Better headlamps…one is totally dead, the other is hanging onto life by a thread of duct tape
  4. Well, we can’t think of anything else so I guess we didn´t pack too horribly!

About Carrie

Carrie's got the traveling bug and thinks "settling down" is overrated. Too many people to meet, places to see, and languages to learn!

  1. I totally agree about the usefulness of having a watch, I wore one everyday when we were abroad, but never wear one at home! These lists are pretty spot on with my experiences…fun to think back about my travels! Great blog~
