From now on, we’ll be living out of our backpacks.
At 8:30 yesterday morning a small group of movers paid Hyundai Hometown building #209, apartment #1703 a visit and boxed up 15 square meters of life’s belongings for a restful hibernation in long term storage. We knew this day would come, but it’s a tad discomforting to sleep on a camping mattress in our own bedrooms for the last week of school.
Some of the basic premises of our clothes:
- They had to be functional and comfortable.
- We are packing only neutral colors that don’t draw attention to us in areas where we want to keep a low profile (like Nairobi).
- The color schemes could easily matched with everything in the bag.
Here is a link to a spreadsheet that we’ve made to organize our clothes for a year of travel. Feel free to make a copy and start your own trip planning!
