Packing for a 10 month trip is more difficult when you intend to visit a wide range of climates.  That’s why we chose to just pack for one… we’ll buy warm clothes if and when we need them.

That’s thinking.

Still, we have packed for pretty much everything else. Take a look at our home comforts for the next 10 months.

    • Good call on the ear plugs and eye mask. The eye mask would have come in especially useful in the desert – damn that brilliantly bright moon!

  1. We are still packing for our upcoming 15 month RTW. I see 10 pairs of pants, thats alot did you really end up with that many? Anything you ditched along the way? I am planning on one pair jeans, 1 pair workout capris, pair workout shorts, jean skirt, jean shorts, black hiking pants and thats it for bottoms….am I forgetting something?

    • I think that sounds about enough. We have a pair of jeans each, two pairs of shorts each, hiking trousers and Gemma has some thermals but that’s all. I’ve ditched one of my shorts now because we went to high altitude for a while and it was cold, but We’re English so our pants refer to our underwear (of which I can’t recommend taking enough). The amount of underwear you take dictates how often you have to do laundry. Once every ten days is quite a lot…
