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

My Own Ultimate Packing List

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!

This how I normally carry my two bags



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.

Love this backpack from Cabin Zero!



I’ve received a fresh and new backpack from Cabin Zero, this company specialise 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.
