What To Pack For A Long Backpacking Trip

what to pack - backpacking list

 

My friends call me a diva when I travel. Although I have gone to many open-air camp-out music festivals, or on low-budget trips, I do like my creature comforts (eg. a clean bathroom and nice clothings). So you can imagine the mental torture I had to go through to select 3 weeks’ worth of clothes, shoes and other essentials to fit into one backpack!  Let me share with you here what I finally settled on.
