As always, I am trying to pack exactly the right things and no more. This trip will be generally a warm weather trip – springtime Melbourne and late-spring Brisbane and Sydney. Also, it is a civilized place where they speak English, so I can easily get anything I might need.
I do have one business-related meeting so I need to dress for that. Here is my stuff:
- The outfit on the left is my dressy apparel – cotton/poly sweater from the famous Tilleys, which is where the hat obviously came from too.
- Everything else is synthetic quick-dry
- Walking shoes
- Light weight rain jacket
- Cloth bag containing socks, underwear, and PJs
- Bathing suit
- 3 tops
In addition I’m taking
- Camera and charger
- iPhone and charger
- Bag of toiletries (toothpaste/brush, sunscreen, medicines, bandaids, wet-wipes, etc., etc.
- Guide book
It all fits nicely into a backpack that can be carried on. I also have a very small backpack for day use, that I’ll have at my feet on the plane.
However I will be stuffing in a winter coat and some jeans for Daughter N.
