My Own Ultimate Packing List – Two Bags:
15 Kilogrammes in Total

A Mary Road Backpack (2)

I know, another packing list. I just thought of sharing my own ultimate packing list for my readers who wonder how can I fit my life into two bags with fifteen kilogrammes in total. All included my gadgets and blogging paraphernalia and small luxury in it like three inches heel shoes and a Polaroid camera.

To give you a little bit of history about my travel backpack: I arrived in Hanoi, Vietnam from Denmark with a cabin sized suitcase, a regular sized backpack and a gym bag. I didn’t buy a proper backpacking bag in Denmark as it was very expensive. The first thing I did was to pick up a backpacker’s bag, I went straight to the small shops along the street of Hang Bong until I found this Vietnamese guy who told me that he loves Filipino TV drama shows, he later offered me a Northface bag for $20 US dollars. Buying from a small shop like that, I was aware that it was a first class replica of the brand. It was one of the best travel investment ever! I still use it after it has been to almost nine countries for 14 months, so far.

Be a responsible traveller in your own little ways, pack a thing or two of these useful eco-friendly travel accessories and products.

WHAT’S IN MARY’S BAG?!

Here are what’s inside my 9 kilogrammes backpack (cabin size). Remember that I stayed mostly in warm countries, although it’s the same items inside my bag during the winter in Jerusalem (2016) plus a winter jacket from Craghoppers. I made a comparison table for different travel jackets with hidden pockets – avoid losing your valuables!

  • pick a backpack with a lot of pockets outside of the bag
  • maximise the use of the pockets and straps of your bags, both inside and outside

Love this backpack from Cabin Zero!

I’ve received a fresh and new backpack from Cabin Zero, this company specialise in making a cabin sized backpack to all type of travellers. This backpack meets every airline’s rules about hand carry bags, therefore using one will let you skip the check-in bag fees! I have been travelling with a cabin sized bag for more than a year which let me save so much money. I’ve given this minimalist backpack a try around the Philippines and loved it! If you are keen to have one as well, you can easily get your own Cabin Zero here.

I normally don’t travel with a tent but I travelled the Philippines with one. I’m planning to tag it along as I move to my next coming destinations. Bringing a tent with all the time will change not only my way of travelling but my packing too! So, that’s it! I hope this ultimate packing list will be very useful to you, drop me a line if you have any questions. I will try to update this as often as possible.
