To take....or not to take

Beitrag von Vanessa2 » 08 Jun 2007 04:12

Is anyone else having issues with working out what clothes to take and the ones to leave at home?!?! I have got a packing list and am trying to follow...but extra stuff has made it's way into my suitcase and i don't know whether to cull these or not. What is everyone else doing in the way of what type of clothing to bring and depending on how long you are going to be away for?!?!?!?!?!? :)

Hey Vanessa,
Less is Best!!
I have traveled myself with way too much and regretted it! I ended up throwing clothes out so I did not have to carry them around.

You should pack the following: (along with a few extras of course)

One warm jumper/ jacket (for night time)
One pair of jeans (jeans are heavy and you will only need one pair-if that)
One good outfit (maybe for after camp or nights out at camp)
A few singlets, shorts and t-shirts (what you will live in at camp)

Also remember that your clothes will become pretty warn out after camp so don't pack your favs! Keep in mind that you may also want to buy new clothes after camp so be sure to leave room for that (be sure to visit Abercrombie and Fitch - that was my favorite)

Hope this helps.

lol the biggest issue I'm having is shoes wise...I've got to take like 5 pairs!!! Cleats, Thongs, Joggers, Casual/Noice shoes and Going out shoes! Clothes are easy, cause I plan to buy them over there...Just remember that they are dirt cheap over there and not EVERYTHING is made in China like it is here HAHAHA
Good luck with ur packing!
