Actually my bag already has been packed about 2 weeks ago, but a final check is always good.
To keep things organized I used these mesh pouches in different sizes. This way I can access my stuff easily without having to dismantle my whole bag. I have separate pouches for my shirts, skirts/pants, underwear, toiletries, night/morning use and extra’s.
I tried to keep track of the total weight. I brought clothing to a minimum but there is some essential heavy gear that I just can’t go without; laptop, camera, heavy lonely planet book and a small travel tripod. My total now is 14 kilo; I hope I can manage that. Else I have to ship some stuff home or just leave it behind.
