Packing List



So my preparation for Botswana is going to be put on hold for a couple weeks while I go to Colombia (!) but I have created a tentative packing list to make up for my lack of productivity. After combing through other blogs and thinking about all the things that make me feel at home, I think it's a pretty complete list. It looks long and intimidating but most of the stuff is small or can be crumpled into tiny balls so I'm hoping it will all fit into my backpacking bag and 2 day bags.
                         My two 40L bags and my medium backpacking bag (I think it's 80L or 70L) that I will be using
