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.
