Great packing video! Would love to see links to the things that you mentioned in the video (ex. the reusable ziplock bag)! 🙂

whats the name of the brown bag over your left shoulder?

yes but I don't think a computer would be nice to handle on this cheap and light bag , its not confortable and quite dangerous for the back if we have our computer everyday? so we need a good daily bag pack but packable. does that exists?

Great tips. Love the practice before you travel. Been traveling for nine years in our RV. Great tips are always appreciated.
I use solar and rechargeable batteries that are solar charged. I have usb chargeable flashlight on my key chain, love it and use it all the time. I’ll have to do a review on it, it’s too cool.

Love the advice at the very end. We're prepping for a 1 year trip where we will be living out of our packs.
We are currently "practicing" our trip and just using the gear we would have on our trip (for the most part). Great advice.

Just a heads up, you can’t bring any wood or woode or seed items into Australia. They’ll be confiscated

1:26 Can you give me a link on where i can buy your bag?

I just take a trunk. All 5 * hotels will pick it up from the airport and have it in your room before you've returned from the welcome drinks.

whats the black backpack to the right of your head?

Bringing a single zoom lens instead of multiple fixed focal length lenses seems like a good recommendation, but there's some things you are giving up in return, such as speed (maximum aperture) and overall image quality. A single fixed focal lens will be even lighter than a zoom lens, so here's my suggestion: bring just a single fixed focal length lens that your are comfortable with and work with what you've got. I strongly believe that a 35mm lens (full frame equivalent) such as the Fujifilm X100 is the perfect travel lens for 95% of the people out there.

very good tips that took me years to develop on my own. Best packing video I've seen.

Please be careful if your traveling by plane and taking nuts (especially peanuts). If you can, ask people around you if they are ok with you eating nuts. People have allergies, and it is kind and respectful to ask first. You could save a life.

what bag are you using at the end of your intro?

April Ezell · May 31, 2019 at 4:20 am

Simply placing a small strip of plastic wrap over the opening and then screwing on the top completely prevents spills. Placing that in a ziploc is the second extra step. No weight involved with this solution! Those bars aren't great shampoo for us ladies :))

Great video! I love it when people discuss packing and travelling gear!! I went on a 3 month trip to Argentina for volunteer work back in 2013, it was my first overseas travel, so I purchased a backpack that was overpriced and overkill. The pack was $150.00 at a big chain outdoor store (which was a lot for me as a broke traveler, yet I got carried away), it was bright blue and super flashy yet a great pack-Patagonia Black Hole 35L. In Cordoba, Argentina I was commuting on bus and I realized that it was drawing too much attention, especially in the neighborhood streets, and especially one night I got lost on the wrong bus home, bahahah. When I returned a year later to stay there for 2 years, I took a more simpler looking pack instead that I found at a thrift store in California. I actually never found thrift stores in Argentina- cultural differences! If I ever wanted to upgrade travel gear I would just ask a favor from people I knew were coming to my destination and they would bring me my things in their luggage.
Any trips around Argentina or to neighboring countries I would travel carry-on only with the least possible clothes rolled up in either a packing cube or a compression sack. I would include a travel towel, flips flops, documents, etc :)))

I would suggest that if you're on a budget, do not be afraid to look around for travel gear in thrift stores! You can save up money that eventually can be used in your travels. Once you are travelling out and about, really no one cares what gear you have, only you because the gear you have will make your packing easier, convenient, and comfortable. p.s. and in my experience, invest in good socks and underwear! Your feet and nether-regions will thank you while traveling! And try travelling carry-on only if you can- it's a neat experience! ahhhhh too many tips to mention and I overspoke!!! I hope this can help someone out there :))))
