Packing list for Asia… My life in a backpack

Agggghhhh too much stuff !!! The first time I went away I took way too much and ended up dumping loads within a week, but as i look through my wardrobe I’m puting lots of things in the maybe pile. As i go on more adventures the amount I take decreases… I’m going to have to be brutal and half the stuff I have piled in front of me. This time around I am going to travel light!!!
