Gap Year Checklist

Packing can be tricky

Before departing the assembly of these items can seem daunting, mainly because there are so many lists available. Ultimately, it is always best to use these guides as just that, to plan what you will take according to what you will be doing once you arrive.

For example, I am staying in Hotels and guest houses where as some people will be trekking for days which will mean a tent is essential.

I have listed below the things that I see as being important additions to your backpack.
