RTW Packing List

Pinterest

This was my rtw packing list for my trip to Poland, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan and then finally back to Ukraine. I’ve modified this list a ton since I’m doing more of the expat/live abroad type of thing instead of extended travel. If I do go out on another rtw trip, I will go off a similar rtw packing list.

A one-sized packing list does not fit all! If you are a traveling female, consult my Her Packing List website for tips.

*Replaced worn out cargo pants with new. Lost 1 long-sleeve shirt. Picked up 2 skirts, a few tank-tops and t-shirts, underwear, socks, a long-sleeve t-shirt, and sweater. Needed work clothes for Ukraine!

all packed up!

I would recommend the Osprey Ariel to any female looking for a quality, light backpack that can withstand wear and tear. It has an awesome hipbelt that can even be moulded to fit your specific shape.

    Ha, yeah the superwell prepared part is more important when traveling to places like Guatemala and Kyrgyzstan… In Europe its easy to get by without all the little bits. Dramamine is for motion sickness. I had a problem on the long mountain bus rides in Central America and told myself I wouldn’t leave home without it next time!

    It’s interesting to see what someone else with a similar slow traveling style is dragging along with them. Here’s our gear list:

    I think we’re pulling over 220L/60-70kg of bags. Sheesh! But there’s 2 of us and we’re pretty much doing the expat/live abroad lifestyle as well, so we don’t have to lug all of it somewhere new too often.

      Definitely wash in sink for a few rounds at least.
