To carry on or not to carry on – that is the big question lots of long terms travellers ask themselves. For us it was a no-brainer! We didn’t want to be weighed down (literally and figuratively) so set out to travel as light as possible. Read about how we sold ALL of our stuff here.

We’ve swapped stuff in and out and picked up – not one, but two cameras along the way.

But I think over the last 12 months we’ve finally found the sweet spot. So, what is in our bags?

Tech: this is split between the two of us

  • Laptop (1 each)
  • iPad
  • Video camera
  • Camera
  • GoPro
  • Ring light
  • External hard drive
  • Hotspots x 2
  • UE Boom/Alexa
  • Router 
  • A lot of charging cables

Clothes: we both pretty much carry the same

  • Knickers x 5
  • Swimsuit x 1
  • Socks x 3
  • T-shirts x 3 
  • Shirts/nice-ish tops x 2 
  • Shorts x 1 
  • Long pants x 1
  • Dresses x 3 (Addison doesn’t have any dresses and has extra shorts instead)
  • Long sleeve top/Henley x 1
  • Sweater/jumper x 1 
  • Jacket x 1 
  • Hat x 1
  • Sandals x 1
  • Sneakers x 1

Other bits and bobs:

  • Minimal makeup and toiletries

  • Antibacterial wipes and sanitizer
  • Masks x 2
  • Passports and copies of visas
  • Monopoly Deal for game nights

Zahn is a travel junkie born and raised on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand. Zahn spent two years in South Korea where she met Addison in 2018. She has visited 17 countries and is on a mission to literally work her way around the rest.
