My Packing List

I try to pack as light as possible, as I made the mistake on my first back packing trip by buying a 65L backpack.  I ended up shipping stuff back home, as it was just too much for and to carry.  I vowed never to make that mistake again.  Now only I travel with a small carry-on and a small backpack.  I will share a normal suitcase with Eileen on some occasions. I know people who travel even lighter, but that’s just something I can’t do.  This list is pretty generic, but the clothing caters to men.pexels-photo-1008155
