You want to know how to pack a backpack for 1 year of traveling or even longer. We travelled all around Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia for 9 months. This is what we packed.

-max. 3 t-shirts and 3 tank tops and 1 nice shirt for nights out
-1 sweater/ hoodie
-1 pair of long pants, 1 pair of shorts, 1 pair of sweatpants and swimwear
-1 rainjacket and a poncho
-hiking boots, sneakers and flip flops
-5 pairs of socks and 1 pair of hiking socks (really important)
-7 boxershorts/hot pants
-sunglasses and glasses

For women we also recommend:

-1 skirt
-1- 2 sports bra (so comfortable and you feel better when sweating A
LOT. Very cheap in Southeast Asia)
-comfortable scarf

-sleeping bag
-2 travel towels
-headlight (really important, if you want to have a pee in the jungle)
-money bag (to hide your money and credit cards under your shirt)
-rain protection for your backpack and small bag (good protection against rain, dirt or thieves)
-laundry detergent
-toilet paper
-dry bag
-travel pillow
-cloth bag (very handy and small in your backpack and even washable)

-a camera (Fuji X100) and a GoPro
-SD Cards (my advice take as many as you can – maybe between 5 and …. 100)
-a bag for all your chargers
-a power bank/power station
-iPod, MP3 player etc.
-mobile loudspeaker
-plug adapter and multiple plug for charging several gadgets at the same time
-a smartphone

Useful stuff:
-1 or 2 pad locks
-duct tape (useful for taping some holes in your tent or bungalow, so you are save from insects walking in your mouth)
-clothes line
-sewing kit (useful for fixing your clothes or holes in your mosquito net)
-pocket knife (if you want to open a can or a mango)
-paper and pen
-mosquito coils
-travel board games

-first aid kit
-a bag for all your pills
-pain killers
-pills for sea sickness
-medicine against diarrhoea
-medicine against nausea
-medicine against stomach ache
-electrolytes (really important if you get diarrhoea)
-clinical thermometer
-malaria pills (we didn’t take any malaria pills in advance as many -people recommend to take them when you actually get sick)
-insect repellent
-contraceptive (pill, condoms etc. – sell-by date is important if you travel for a long period)

Deciding which foods to carry can be a daunting task for new nomads, travelers, and snowbirds. This is even more challenging if you do not have reliable refrigeration. Storage space is usually limited, and preparation tends to be more complicated than in a house as well.

In this video we share our camping food list for nomads. These are our top travel food ideas for RVers van dwellers, and other vehicle nomads.

What do you keep in your vehicle pantry while traveling? What are the essentials on your camping food list? Share your top travel food ideas in the comments!

A video about the contents of my Ultralight Backpack. I show you what I carry in the pack and on my person. This is my 3 season kit. It does change with the weather and when it’s cold I will pack an upper and lower base layer. This is my minimum pack. I want to give credit to John at IntenseAngler Outdoors ( )
He has great instructions on the alcohol stove, and lots of other ultralight stuff.
Hope you enjoy. Here’s some links to other video’s I mention:

22.7 pounds total (including food, water and youtube gear). 13.3 pounds base weight.

Gear mentioned:

Fun-filled Saturday! Started off picking up our Christmas tree from Tai Pan, picking out Christmas gifts for Mom’s nail clients, getting interviewed on a podcast about Thanksgiving and family traditions, then finishing things off with an exclusive early access screening of Netflix new holiday show The Christmas Chronicles with Kurt Russell as Santa Claus plus a fun early Christmas gift from Netflix to make the movie viewing a little more festive.
