Pack and GO

Wednesday, November 18, 2015

So we flew overnight to China, had the breakfast of champions: dumplings, a Chinese beer, and classic Lays to start our morning right before flying into Bangkok! 
We are here safe and sound and I am just sitting down to write this post on what we packed after I tested it out to see what I really needed so I can steer you in the right direction while you're packing for your trip!!! 

How do you pack to travel half way around the world for two weeks? 
Well, let me tell you. I am a chronic over packer and hardly ever use half of what I cram into my bag... so this time I really tried to pack ONLY ESSENTIALS... which was really hard because I consider probably 7 pairs of shoes essential. 

So I limited myself to one carry on sized bag (because my Camera equipment is pretty ridiculous) and one normal sized backpack. Here is what I came up with for two weeks in Thailand spending time in the city, the suburbs, and the islands with a few formal occasions and a LOT of casual hot weather and exploring...
