Written down it looks like a lot but my backpack weighted in tonight at exactly 10kg, which is way under the 15kg I was aiming for.

In addition to this I will be taking a carry-on bag that will double as my day bag.  This is for things that require electricity…

  • Laptop (13″ Screen)
  • Seagate Freeagent Go 320gb portable hard drive
  • Sony a200 Digital SLR with 18-200 lens
  • Canon ixus 95 35mm digital camera
  • Gorillapod SLR Zoom
  • Nokia N95 (wifi enabled, GPS etc)
  • 1 x EU 1x USA/AUS Power adapter & 4-way power strip.

Getting over the borders

  • Passport
  • Pre-arranged visas for Australia & Vietnam
  • 10 x passport photographs
  • 5 x copies passport
  • Printed copies of booked flights/hostels
  • Lonely Planet Guides:
    • Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos
    • Thailand
  • All essential docs in soft copy on laptop and with parents.

Pezza has also packed, very similar but she doesn’t need to take the electronics.  Her biggest dilemma is whether to pack her GHD hair straighteners!
