Round the World (RTW) Packing List

As I work on my Ecuador entry, let me post this instead =P

One of the major questions I had when preparing for two months of travel was "What exactly do I bring and what should I leave behind??" I read a lot of blog entries and articles on the subject. I ended up compiling my own list based on the necessities I would need and the splurge items I knew I would want, such as a loofah or my travel sized make-up items. Below is a list of everything that came along.


My supplies and clothes for 2 months travel.
