This is my packing list. Would I change it? I think if I were to make the decision to travel for a much longer time than three weeks I would continue with this list above. I have everything I need, and sometimes it feels like more, and others it feels perfect. This is truly living simply, and it could be even simpler. It all depends on what you're comfortable with, if you want to check your luggage in the airport, and how long your travels may be. But for now, this is the list that holds the foundation for my long-term travels. I hope it helps you travelers and/or pursuing travelers out there!
