Last evening I was talking to a friend who has similar plans for traveling. He’s got more experience then me with traveling for a longer time. I told him my plans and one of the first things he mentioned was to put as little as possible in my backpack.
My travel plans can be divided up into 2 parts, if you like at the gear I will take with me. In the first part of my journey will be with a tent, so I need space for camping gear. The second part of my journey I won’t be needing a tent. When the second part starts I’ll probably sell the camping gear or I” send it back home.
Further I’ll be taking some extra stuff like a good camera for movies (GoPro?), a tablet or laptop, a powerbank and probably some other stuff. Even thinking about getting a leightweight drone for some awesome videos. The GoPro Karma looks very good for this. I would also like to have a nice pair of clothes with me (including shoes) for a evening out or something like that.
Probably I will have to make some choices, I can’t bring it all with me. Right now I’m thinking about a 85 litre backpack. Bigger is not smart I think.
