what's in our backpacks?

Updated: Aug 18, 2019


Daniel and I have had many, many questions regarding our backpacks -- what we packed, how much we packed, etc. This blog post is for you! Packing for a year was a daunting task at first, but came together without too much struggle after some research. I think Daniel had an easier time with packing than I did. I love color, flowing skirts, bold patterns, jewelry, and dresses way too much! I'm just not a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. I had to keep reminding myself that we need versatile, simple clothing that can be adaptable to any atmosphere. Find out what we packed below.
